    New Droid from insurance, and my first problems with Sapphire... kernel related?

    So I dropped my old phone in the toilet last week and got my new one in the mail today. I immediately rooted and installed sapphire. On my old phone I never had a single problem with Sapphire but on this one my browser just crashes, no FCs, just a crash to the home screen and I've had two random reboots in the past 30 mins.

    I'm guessing this is a problem with the kernel? I used to use on my old phone the 1.2ghz low voltage kernel but when I installed Sapphire from rom manager today I accidentally picked med voltage. Could my phone be telling me that med voltage is not the right choice? I haven't even downloaded setcpu yet but I know sapphire overclocks by default (I think anyway). If this is a problem with the kernel how do I know which one to use? Is the voltage what matters or are some CPUs just not capable of being clocked higher? I really don't know anything about any of this stuff so if someone could help me out and explain it a little better for me I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    Dumped your DROID in the crapper eh?

    Anyway, yes sounds like a problem with your phone and the kernel and or corruption.

    Go here and download a 125-800 LV (low voltage) or 125-800 SV (standard voltage) kernel and install the kernel like a ROM (but don't wipe before installing the kernel)

    You may want to also start over and do a clean install of Sapphire then the 125-800 kernel of your choice thus eliminating any potential corruption.
    My first smartphone was a Droid 1. Then I found the Nexus... Galaxy Nexus LTE unlocked & rooted...
    AOKP JB build ROM, IMO JB exp Kernel,

    yes different phones will handle overclocking differently. You just have to try out a few until you find one that will be stable on your phone. Start with a 800MHz kernel and work your way up until you start getting the reboots or crashes again. Then you will know the upper limit of what your phone can handle.
