    Your gonna get a mixed response to this question as everyone has different results. I myself have had good luck w/ jdflg, chevy01 and P3 kernels. Never tried any others
    Best bet is try em all out and let them run for a day or so eying the battery life and temp. If your droid runs hot, switch kernels! Make sure you backup your current rom before you install any new kernels as a bootloop is a sure sign that one won't work ;-)

    P.s. I have never seen a Droid run over 1.2ghz. Not saying it isn't possible, I just never seen it done successfully.

    I've tried most of Slahyer's and Chevy01's and they work fine. I had to try a bunch to find my comfortable top end, which for my Droid was the 1.0 Ghz. I tried the 1.1's and it was flaky and the 1.2's at any voltage wouldn't boot up.

    With most kernals that are different voltages that you can select. Look for the MV or LV on the kernel when you're downloading. The Low Voltage or even Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) can be a little touchy as they are trying to accomplish the best of both worlds. Faster speed, using less power. So, if the 1.1 ULV kernal won't boot, the LV or MV version might.

    Good Luck.

    I'm using the Slayher LV 900 v1.6 (with compcache enabled) and it has been great for speed, stability, and battery life. My wife is using the built-in bb0.5 kernel and her phone is not quite as fast, but is stable and has great battery life.

    ULV Kernel


    I managed to get Chevy's ULV 1100 to work on my D1 with BBv.5 with no issues. I think it's mostly what else you're running on your Droid in addittion to your root and custom ROM. Remember that no 2 Droids are alike, different folks like and have different programs and apps, it all boils down to code in how it interacts, though. Hope this helps.dancedroid

    thanks guys. i decided to try chevyulv 1.0 kernel. seems to run fine, and low temperature around 30 which is suprising. i'm scared to go higher. what's the difference between voltages? how much power it uses?

    Partially. IIRC the rule of thumb is if your device is unstable with a kernel then decrease clock speed and increase voltage.

    Try Googling binning and how it relates to processor manufacture.

    Is it the kernel or is it Bugless that is missing IPV6 support? And keeping me from using Goggles. :-/ lol

    If I remember correctly I'm using a P3 kernel.

    I run Chevy's ULV 1000 after reflashed .5 The stupid thing FLYS now. It's awesome. It's clocked at 1000. Does the job.
