I have the over clocking itch and after reading tons of posts on it. Found that i shouldnt worry about heat since petes rom has built in safety features. Only downside i found was drain on battery life. On stock 2.1 i could never get through half a day on heavy use without going dead. On 600mhz it seemed the same.
Now im trying 800mhz and so far it seems the same but i havent been using my phone as much the last day or so. It has gotten warm to the touch when i was playing homerun battle, then pocket empires, then jewelust, then lots of web browsing (sitting at the dmv for two hours....) on 800mhz but it didnt shut off just slowed down really bad at one point. I checked the process and couldnt find anything cpu hogging. Few seconds later it all went back to normal.
So what exactly is the "bad" from overclocking this phone? Switching kernels a lot bad for the phone? If i get a extended life battery then the battery issue is solved so it seems like its just good all the way around LOL
Sounds dumb but im just curious, when i OCed my desktop back in the days i had to upgrade ram speed,cooling, heatsinks, motherboards etc etc etc
