    Update: I am now using Stock CM kernel and Milestone OC utility where you decide the speed and voltage. No more guessing flash this and that kernel not knowing what your getting. You can read about it in the Compcache thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/koush/76452-comp-cache-26.html

    I am done flashing this and that kernel.

    I'm done with over clocking. I was using a Chevy #1 lv 1000 and all was good. Till I went out of town over the weekend. Phone started running really hot 140*+
    I decided to use RM to down load a 800 kernel. When the phone went to reboot into recovery and stopped at the M. I was a hour away from home and would not be home for 2 days. In the middle of no where with no internet and no phone. Stopped into Verizon and bought a Droid X.

    When i got home yesterday I was able to unbrick the Droid. I put it back to 22d then did the OTA 83d and gave it to my wife. Im just mad at myself for not being prepared for a bricked phone. i should have had the files need ready to go on my laptop.

    A $500 lesson the hard way!

    Exactly you had no idea what you were getting with Chevy's OC kernel. With Milestone overclock and primes Stock CM kernel you do because you set the parameters! You can read about it and safe operating levels here: KernelModule - milestone-overclock - How to use the kernel module - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I've seen success with Slayer's and Chevy's kernels on all versions of CM as long as i stay below 1200. I'm currently running CM 6.1.2 with Chevy's ULV 1100 and SetCPU OnDemand 250-1100.

    Slayer's kernels were giving me issues with Wireless Tether, but they are otherwise great.

    After a rebuild around Cm v6.1.2 (I ran into some issues) I thought I would run the stock kernal. I used SetCPU, pushed it to 800Mhz top end and left the low end at 225.
    Had no problems (24 hours) and Quadrant benchmark reads greater than 1200. Way fast for my purposes. Me a happy D1 owner :)

    Cool,

    DF member Prime, who is responsible for tweaking the CM stock kernel for compcache and the Milestone OC utility has sung the praises of the stock kernel. I think his words were "anything but stock", meaning very solid. This gent knows how to pick a kernel apart and his opinion sure carries weight with me. I don't think enough folks spend time with stock kernels to even know if a new one is an improvement, across the roms. Gotta get that 1700 quadrant, ya know:)

    I've noticed that 6.1.2 with the stock kernel at 125-800 is almost as smooth and responsive as my 6.1 install was with a 125-1.2GHz LV kernel was. It's easily as responsive as my old 1.1GHz 6.0 install was. Whatever they did, mammal likie! ;)

    Bone stock, running at stock speeds. I haven't flashed anything onto the phone since I installed 6.1.2. I intend to soon enough, and lower the voltages with the OC utility to try to save even more battery (I can run Chevy's ULV kernels with no problems) as well as getting compcache set up, but I just haven't had the time lately. :) I did notice a distinct improvement over 1.2GHz in regards to battery life, but who is really surprised at that? :D

    You can just install the Milestone Overclock download with Prime Overclock.ko module from Bear's tutorial thread download for this app and it works fine without flashing anything else. For compcache though follow Bear's tutorial for that and flash the kernel for download in that thread (same CM stock kernel with Overclock.ko and Ramzswap.ko.
