    i am using the 7.6 BB rom but I was wondering i know i followed all steps right and i am rooted. Have the custome rom, and set cpu installed. I put it up to 1000mhz how can be 100 percent sure that i am overclocking the cpu?

    if the big numbers at the top of the setCpu say 1000Mhz, then you are running at 1000MHz

    in either adb or a terminal emulator app on the phone type

    Code:
    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    if you phone is just idle when you do this, it will only report back what you have your "min" value set to. to make sure your max value is properly working, play some music in the background or something that is constantly running (gps, etc)

    also

    Code:
    cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies
    
    this will verify what your frequecies should be that setcpu should be allowing you to choose form

    I'm clocked at 1000mhz but I used benchmark pi and I'm getting the reading for 1000mhz when comparing it to the bugless beast thread so I know for sure I am now overclocked thanks everyone for helping
