Finally have my incredible rooted and I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best kernel to use to OC my processor and where to download it. Thanks.
supposedly setcpu works without a custom kernel, it has a built in perflock disabler and once you do that it allows to to change cpu speeds, but it still does not go above 998mhz so you cant overclock. i havent installed a custom kernel yet, but i've been researching them and it seems the best right now is hydra kernel OC UV 1.15ghz #5, but last i checked their website was down so i dont know where you can get it now
His site is back up. http://hydrakernel.cz.cc/
I am not using any custom ROM, and I have tested all 3 of the hydra kernels n-enabled (download links 1, 3, and 5). Kernel #1 kept getting suck on the boot animation after I installed it, and kernel #3 froze up a lot.
I'm currently using hydra_ov2_n_v07 (the 5th link) and its pretty sweet. My wifi link speed is at 65 Mbps on wifi-n and my phone is feeling snappy. The kernel seems very stable, my battery temperature is fine, and my performance benchmarks show a modest improvement. To me, this seems the best one for day-to-day use.

so the no wireless N one is only necessary if you plan to link to devices that do not have wireless n? i want to link to my older macbook pro and it does not have a wireless n card, does this mean i should get the one without wireless n if i still want to be able to tether to my laptop?
yeah, you'll want wireless n (it will give you a faster internet connection). I can't really comment to much as to the 1.13 vs 1.15 question.
I would just download both 1.13/1.15 and see what works best for you. If 1.15 is stable for you, go with that
