    Changing the clock speed will make the Droid operate faster. Looking at Overclocking - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

    Overclocking is the process of running a computer component at a higher clock rate (more clock cycles per second) than it was designed for or was specified by the manufacturer.

    I haven't rooted yet, but I believe you can get an app called SetCPU for rooted Droids, which will change the clock speed from 550 up to 1,200.
    Thanks and also i do have a question idk if you can help me what does kernnel means?

    SetCPU is only a manager so to speak. You need to flash Overclock kernels
    to your rom then set speeds through SetCPU

    basically setcpu allows you to manage how fast the kernel lets your droid run at. the higher the kernels speed the more you will be able to overclock.

    In oversimplified terms, the kernel is basically the 'core' of the Operating System, in the case of Android it is the Linux kernel.
