    so what is the best "advanced settings"? I have seen 50000, 70, 00 & 65000, 80, 0, 0..... Do you have a recommendation for a 2.1 ROM? Thanks!!

This new setcpu on System Panel looks more like a tach, it bounces all over, rarely hitting the 800 mark. It looks like the newer setcpu is doing a much better job of managing the cpu than the old one. And it also looks like I really don't need to clock any higher as it's not going to hit that higher mark. All my settings are the same as the older version. Is this what you see as 'normal' behaviour in system panel? Thanks for all your research too ...
    SetCPU only sets files on disk that the Android OS reads. Once it sets those files SetCPU does nothing until a profile condition is hit. SetCPU is just finally showing the true frequency as the OS throttles it. Which it didn't always do well in the past versions.

    Ok! That makes sense, I had it backwards, I always thought that setcpu controlled the throttle all the time.

    I wish. If he did, he would put both a CPU and Battery temp profile in instead of only letting you pick one or the other.

    Under 2.1 I was running 62500, 75 or 80 (depending on what I was testing), 0, 0 with a 7 slot Low Voltage 1Ghz kernel.

    Never seemed slow. Battery life isn't as good as 2.2 but that is to be expected since they learned a lot since 2.1 came out.

    I want to take a moment to thank everyone for their kind words and encouragement.

    When I started this life sucking hobby (*big grin*) called the Motorola Droid I had no idea what I was getting into. As a professional programmer, I am always asking why code works the way it does and why did the coder choose that method to get the job done. The Android OS, while *NIX based, presents some interesting tweaks to get it to work on a small foot print with software based event triggers. When I went to find out how to use SetCPU, I couldn't find enough info to write 100 words on the subject. And what info I did find was contradicting. Some people said SetCPU did everything. Some said it was the OS doing it. So I spent hours pulling everything apart to find out. That is when I did the first version of the articles back in April. When that thread met its untimely death due to a "scandal" I was asked to redo it. I re-evaluated everything I had done and noticed two things. I was a little wordy and I sometimes dumbed things down when in reality you all wanted the nitty gritty. Hopefully I corrected both.

    There have been a lot of great questioned asked over the last 2 months I have been doing this. I hope that trend doesn't end.

    So here is my "takeaway". I have SetCPU set with a max of 1100 even though the kernel goes to 1250mhz. If you look at my SetCPU icon, it shows 1250MHz at the top with 1100 max and 250 min below it.

    So how do I know it is holding to 1100?

    Go to System Panel, click on "Menu" and then click on "Monitor" and you will see your CPU activity and for me at least, it does not go above 1100 MHz. The Monitor also has a battery temperatture as well as AK8973 temp sensor which I bet is the CPU itself.

    Great thread!
