Can i overclock my droid without installing a ROM? I am rooted if it matters.
Crap, I can't remember where I saw the link last. I use bugless beast which comes with the latest 1GHz kernel.
AllDroid - View topic - Droid is stable at 800MHz. Nuff said *950MHz, 1.1GHz added*
Theres the boot.img and nandroid backups. I suggest SetCPU from market, its only a buck, but if you CANT pay, look for it on XDA's site. 1.1ghz and up can lead you into a bootloop, cause some phones cant take it, I recommend 1ghz.
Here are the Taz kernels which are currently the newest and probably the best:
AllDroid - View topic - [Release] TazKernel 1.3GHz and TempMonitor Reborn (02/06/10)
They work with TempMonitor to display the CPU proc temp (unlike other's which rely on the Battery temp).
You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe
