    Question Droid 1 getting very hot. How to sense internal temp? How high is safe?

    I've noticed lately that my Droid 1 is heating up way more than usual lately and I don't mean a little warm, I mean seriously hot! This occurs when doing something so simple as using the stock browser, nothing really intense for the cpu. Although I expected the heat to be eminating from the battery, the bulk of the heat seems to be coming from the area to the right of the camera. So, I'm wondering, how hot is safe for my processor, and how can I tell how hot it is? Is there an app I can use to monitor the internal temperature? Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

    Are either of you rooted and overclocking the device?

    Interesting ... I use TempMonitor to check my device temps, but I think with the froyo builds it depends on the kernel as to whether or not you can get the CPU temp.
    As far as "safe" temp goes I've heard above 120 degrees is when you should worry about damage.
    I know your not overclocking, but this thread is loaded with good info

    the chips are rated to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. i dont usually let mine go over 125. as long as you aren't to high for and excessive amount of time then you should be ok.

    I also manuallyupdated to 2.2, no root. It does seem to me that this new rise in temperature is somehow related, but I'm certainly not sure.

    froyo has a new feature stabilized named JIT(just in time) info here Just-in-time compilation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia it might cause your phone to run a little hotter than on 2.1

    Thanks, Everyone, for your replies.

    I've decided to go with a free App from the market called, "BatteryLife". It's a widget that monitors the condition and status of my battery, as well as display the ambient temperature of my phone. It seems that all temp sensor apps so far are only monitoring the battery temp, but this will at least give me some idea of what what's going on in there. I really felt like I could fry an egg on my Droid today and that really had me worried seeing as how what I was doing was putting minimal strain on it and yet, it was hotter than I could remember it ever being.

    My plan is to keep it under about 130F so as not to have this thing burst into a ball of flames in my hand.

    I have a non-rooted, all stock D1 (2.1) and while looking at random pages through dolphin hd my battery temp will be around 112-118 F. Don't know if thats normal but i'm starting to think that it may be normal.
