(I did post this in the ROMS section, but wasn't sure if that is the correct area for this, I also want as many people as possible to get this warning, so MODs if this is not the right section, feel free to move this)
For all those out there who have over clocked your droid i have a tale of caution for you. This has now happened to me twice.
In the evening i aways plug in my droid and use it as my alarm clock. A few days ago though, i woke up to my alarm clock going off as usual. When i went to pick up my phone to turn off the alarm however, my phone was EXTREMELY hot. Hot to the point were it hurt when i picked it up. It was also completely unresponsive, i could not turn off the alarm, or do anything, i immediately did a battery pull and waited it out, all was fine in the end. At the time i had my droid over clocked at 1000 and though nothing of it.
A day passes and it leaves my mind. I even changed my clock speed to 1200 as i had heard no real complaints about that speed.
This morning i wake up to something similar, but to even make the problem worse, my phone had fallen on the ground last night, and i guess i tossed off a pillow in the middle of the night as well, as it was on top of the phone when i woke up (guess it held the heat in)...
The alarm had been going off for quite some time, and when i got my phone out from underneath the pillow, it was even hotter then the other morning. It was VERY hot, and the screen looked funny. I did a battery pull again, but it would not come back on. The phone was fried.
YES i was using the stock charger that came with the phone and not a cheap aftermarket charger. I have had the phone since Nov, with no other issues. I was running Sholes 2.0.5 @ 1200Mhz.
I talked to a buddy of mine who had something similar happen to him, and it was only at speeds > 1000.
So a warning to all who is out there, Over clock above 1000 at YOUR OWN RISK.
