    setCPU widget shows max and min but not current clockspeed, I'm pretty sure no such app exists, but just in case there is one... anyone heard of it?:)

    What it says on the widget is the current speed

    When you open it it shows current clock speed on the left in white.

    Once again, no, it shows the current profile.

    It does not show what clock speed it is at a given moment.

    If these were showing actual clock speeds, we would see them jumping around and moving up and down as the phone goes from idle to busy. We do not see this.

    If I got my charging profile set to 600 and I'm plugged in it says 600. Therefore I'm at 600 cause that's what its set to be at while charging

    *Sigh*


    Thats the max speed you will hit while charging, not the speed at all times, unless your profile is set to 600 max and 600 min. It fluctuates between that and the lower profile speed, if its set.

    I thought that is what the "refresh" button was for. Mine is on demand 800. When I open setcpu it shows 800. If I let it sit idle and push refresh, it drops to 550.

    Yeah I just checked it. When you open SetCPU, on the right side it will show your max and min speed. On the left is the current speed. If you let it sit there for a second and hit refresh it will change. For instance, I run a 250-1200 kernel, and it will bounce from 250 to 1000 to 800 to 1200 as I hit refresh.

    Download "OverclockWidget" from the market. I use this in conjunction with SetCpu and get profile speed and current speed.

    I know you can get current clockspeed after opening the program, I want it in a widget. I'll check "OverclockWidget" and report back.

    Edit: OK the app appears to have been designed for the g1, after fiddling with some manual settings though it is working somewhat. It only updates every 5 seconds and I'd have preferred far more frequent but it served its purpose of showing that live wallpapers do not affect the downclock speed when sitting unused on the homescreen

    This app interfered with my overclock and "over-rode" setCPU overclock with it's own weaker overclock. After reopening setCPU, setCPU "re-took" the clock authority and now the widget and setCPU appear to be peacefully co-existing.

    It's not perfect but it does do some of the things I had hoped so thanks for the tip pthance.

    OK I'm going to have to take that back, live wallpapers do significantly affect how fast and how low the phone downclocks but not (usually) the ultimate downclock speed. Different live wallpapers have different affects on clockspeed:

    My results with different live wallpapers are presented below. A lot of this is just confirming what we already know, and my "means" were definitively subjective and not very "methodologically rigorous" but I think they still have some useful information for us.

    the "galaxy" has little effect
    "Live Waterpaper" (from market, my personal favorite) has an average +250mhz(ish) effect on high settings and plus 150mhz on medium settings
    "Grass" has little effect
    "Smoke" has little effect
    "Neural Network" +100mhz(ish)
    "Leaves on a Pond" Little effect
    "Polar Clock" had little effect
    All Spectrum/Waveform visualizations were +250mhz(ish)
    VU Meter had little effect.
    "Snowfall" was the worst at +800mhz constantly (never dropped below 900mhz til the screen shut off)

    All of the listed clockspeed variations don't speak to what level the CPU finally downclocked to (with some exceptions) but rather that the indicated increase in clockspeed persisted for an extra 7 seconds (between 5 and 10) which while not long could add up to a lot over a normal day of use.

    The audio and snowfall live wallpapers however, showed increased clockspeed until the screen turned off (30 seconds, I could increase this but am too lazy)

    All live wallpapers except Polar Clock resulted in choppier transitions between the homescreens.
