Here's a possible n00b question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. What is a normal running temp for an overclocked phone. What's a max safe temp? I want to monitor my temps with the new LV kernels, but I'm not exactly sure what should alarm me.
from what I can find, the temp in setcpu is the battery temp, not the cpu temp. I have no idea why, since if I trash a battery I can buy another one for 4$ on ebay.. a battery not so much
So I've been running the LV, 5 slot, 1GHZ kernel for awhile (well since it was released anyway) and decided to go with the LV 1.25ghz. Everything worked fine until I put a major load on the processor (google maps) for about 20 minutes. It eventually got so hot (I caught it at 110*, but it may have been hotter) that it started to continually reboot. Just to verify that heat was the issue, I held it in front of the A/C in my car while running Google Maps. As soon as the temps started dropping, it quit rebooting. I got it cooled all the way down to 53* @ 1.25ghz. What I found interesting is I clocked it down to 250Mhz just for curiosity sake, and my temps dropped down to 46*. As soon as I upclocked it back to 1.25Ghz, my temps rose to 53 again. With this being said, i think heat is definitely the issue here. Now I understand that the temps I'm referring to are battery temps and not actual processor temps (I would assume the processor is actually much hotter) but it at least helped verify that heat is the issue. I also noticed that with the 1.25ghz kernel, my service was very poor and I could hardly use the internet. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe it was just coincidence/bad tower that I was pulling of off, but as soon as I restored it back to the 1.00ghz kernel, my service improved.
Anyway, those are my findings on the matter, not complaining at all chevy, I love your work, just letting you know my experiences. Thanks again for what you do, much appreciated!
