    Overclocking Stability

    I keep seeing people using 1GHz+ kernels but with my Droid it seems like anything past the standard 600MHz kernel results in flakiness. Not boot loops, not reboots, just the occasional pause or glitch with Home++ that I never seem to see with a 600MHz kernel. I've used both the Bekit and P3 kernels with the same results. How common is this?

    if i were you i would try using launcherprobeta free in the market or adwlauncher in market and see if you have the same results? i think in spare parts you can make transitions to fast. Are you in setcpu hitting your menu key to hit autodetect?on your device selection and not the droid?

    Not when I'm just swapping kernels.

    I don't have Setcpu installed at this time. As for trying a different Home app, that seems worth a try. I guess my concern is that if it is causing Home++ to misbehave then what else might it be silently corrupting that I don't even notice?

    Re SetCpu: Maybe I should be running SetCpu so I can experiment with different speeds without swapping kernels all the time. I know with Version 1.0 of BB SetCpu was discouraged, is it OK to run now?

    The processor is technically only rated for 600 MHz. You may just have been unlucky enough to get one that won't do any better. I know my first Droid wasn't stable above 800 MHZ, my wife's and my current droid handle 1 GHz just fine.

    I ditched Home++....Had all kinds of issues and force closes even in stock.

    It was a nice start app for me (wish I had my money back, though!), but there are better, more stable home apps that do similar things and more.
