    Skull - thanks for the awesome writeups. I haven't finished yet but wanted to get my questions out before this gets flooded!

    First, what is your (more detailed than yesterday's post ) take on Bugless Beast's way of handling overclocking? If you answer that above, ignore this obviously.

    And what is your day job?

    Actually post #5 was reserved for testing of Bugless Beast, Team Chaos, Cyanogen and Chevy's ROM when it came to their "Base Kernel" selection and recommendations.

    BB has really got my attention with his assertions. And I can't wait to test his ROM with a few programs I use to generate heat in the CPU quickly to see what happens to the Droid.


    Day job is BORING! I write software for the HVAC industry. My electronics background comes from being an Electronics Technician for the USAF.

    Just like Mcdonald's I'm loving this thread!!!! I've been running BB V1.0 and V1.1 since V1.0 came out and have kept the "Pete" file just cause, now thanks to this I have .bak'd it and brought back SetCpu to see if I can get more battery life.

    Thanks for the knowledge!!!

    There was another overclocking thread you did but it says it is gone now. I had it bookmarked and sent it to a few folks. Glad to see this here, great write up, thanks!

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    This is the "Official Replacement" due to the last one being in a locked area of the forum. Which sort of made it hard to update . I have also removed all references to ROM sets so the reader can apply the theory to any ROM as they see fit.

    This is excellent, exactly what I've been looking for... I know most of the hardware stuff (I'm a PC Tech and have a background in electronic engineering as well) but I'm not much of a coder and don't have a full understanding of all the settings.
    If there is anything I can do to help you out with this, let me know, I'm constantly playing around with my phone... I finally (today) settled on the bekit 1.2GHz low-voltage kernel as my best one for speed and battery life, as well as its compatibility with apps2sd (Which, even though does not pertain to overclocking specifically, might deserve a mention because it is tied to an overclocking ROM with CyanogenMod).
    Also, Thank you *SO* much for explaining about the slots... I thought it was the number of screens, which I didn't care about because I use a 5-screen launcher... As a matter of fact, my phone just now booted up after switching from a 5 to 7 slot kernel
    HTC Rezound... Stock for now, with the Tag Home launcher...

    Skull - based on what I just read, let me ask a question...

    Let's say the batteries in our Droids are designed to last 3 years. I've always had a hesitancy in the back of my head when I'm overclocking that no matter what, if I'm overclocking, it's reducing that 3 years by some formula, and that if I'd just stick with what the phone was designed for, I should get my battery to last 3 years.

    It sounds like you're saying that if I can find the perfect balance, I can actually get better cpu performance, and still keep (or even improve?) that 3 year time-frame. Is that a correct take on what you wrote?

    Thanks again, great stuff.
