I tried to OC my Droid this morning and it hasn't been pretty. I first tried a manual OC using ADB and evilimg_.img. I tried the 1 GHz first and my phone wouldn't boot past the Motorola logo. I did the same process and tried the 800 MHz image, but no change. From there, I went back and reapplied a base 2.2 .sbf w/the hopes of resetting the phone back to factory-ish. That worked & the phone would boot, but the OS was flipping out on me saying that the battery was dead and it kept rebooting. (That was w/2 different working batteries and even w/no battery - just the a/c plug).
At this point I took a step back and actually researched Droid overclocking (I understand it for PCs, but don't know the specifics re: the phone) - better late than never, right? After reading Skull's Overclocking 101 I recognized that the OS & battery issues were probably kernel related, so I tried a few different kernels from P3Designs. Using those the OS was slightly more stable and didn't report battery issues, but it still hung/froze/rebooted frequently on a variety of the speeds I tried. Sigh.
At this point, I'm in the process of revering my entire phone back to a factory 2.0 image and I'll upgrade back to 2.2 from there. Now then, after all of that, my actual question is this: will re-imaging my phone using a stock .sbf override my OC attempts, or is the OC config somehow pre-sbf and still a concern I need to address? If I still need to fix it, how exactly do I do so? Thanks for the help all - I promise I'll read first and *then* tweak next time!
