    WTF!!! Sholes mod and setcpu killed my droid

    Im about to tear down the walls in my house i am so pissed. Have to leave for work in a half hour and just installed the sholes mod and setcpu. Tried the autodetect function on setcpu and now my phone will do nothing but turn on and off by itself and freezing. Runs like total a$$. What is wrong what do I need to do to optimize performance? Im not very familiar with linux so im kinda lost here guys. I consider myself decently tech savvy but what the hell is up here.

    Let's move this to the right sub-forum.

    And no one is forced to do the Mod... So chill a second and explain what happened and I am sure someone will help.

    Pull your battery. Now hold 'x' on the physical keyboard and power on your Droid. Select backup/restore.... restore simple nandroid backup. See if that helps first.

    I would reboot into recovery and restore the backup that sholes should have made.

    This is the kind of thing that I was talking about when I said that Sholes Updater made it too easy to root your phone and have people **** it up.

    I am about 100% sure his phone is not permanently ****ed up, but if he had done it manually, step by step, he would know exactly how and what to do in regards to restoring the phone to a working condition via Nandroid.

    If I'm wrong and the OP did indeed install it manually, then I will gladly apologize for jumping to conclusions.

    Good luck to the OP.

    Wow....this is kinda making me think I shouldn't recommend this app to all the newer ones that need an easier way to do all this stuff...this is shocking to see...

    I wonder what caused this?

    Probably what caused it is the same as me... tried to OC to 1ghz and wound up in a loop. Only difference is I'm aware of the steps to take to resolve the problem....

    It's not the app per se, it's most likely user error (no offense to the OP). The difference is, anyone can find Sholes on the Market for 5 bucks and not do a single bit of research (and some are the opposite, they research despite the fact that they can use Sholes) and when they run into problems, it's easy to freak out because it is marketed as an easy way to root your phone. And it is. But you still need to have a bit of knowledge of what you are doing and do research.

    If you do the process manually, each guide I have seen explains about how you are making a backup and how to restore it. The SM Updater says "attempting Nandroid backup" but it doesn't give you instructions on how to restore it should you run into issues.

    Case in point of someone that researched despite having SM Updater at his fingertips and can easily ascertain what the problem most likely is...or at the very least how to restore the phone so it will work while he is going to work.

    Again, no offense to the OP. Post everything you did and let's get you off and to work with at the very least a working phone.
