    I just bought a Droid RAZR on eBay and I was wondering if it can be overclocked with an app like SetCPU?

    Thanks

    I do not believe so. The current kernel only supports the following frequencies: 300, 600, 800, 1000 and 1200.
    It will be very difficult to oc with a locked kernel. However, since there is safe-strap I believe it may be possible to have a different kernel on safe mode -not sure, check with a developer.

    does this mean you can underclock for better battery life?

    Not possible to overclock/undervolt a stock kernel with Motorola. You need an app like Android Overclock which I don't believe is compatible with the RAZR. Moto devices with locked bootloaders overclock/undervolt via scripts and not kernel changes.

    so.. how do I underclock the Razr? which app should I get?? is there a way of variable underclocking so while it is dormant it runs really slow clock and then ramps up on wake?

    Android naturally underclocks when dormant. Full processor speeds are achieved under task heavy use like HD games or multi-tasking. There is no app (that I'm aware of) that works on the RAZR to overclock or undervolt.

    ......the RAZR does in fact scale down clock speed while dormant

    The razr CAN be overclocked, just not yet. They're still working over @ xda on loading the kernel module that allows OC without interfering with the kernel itself. It's been done for the Bionic but not yet finished for the razr afaik

    Is this just a because you can? Really it's a dual core phone. The only thing I could see benefiting from overclocking is WebTop. Underclocking probably isn't necessary either.

    Undervolting can increase battery life. Stock voltage speeds ate quite high. Overclocking just makes things run smoother. Why not do it?

    What isn't running smooth that can run smoother? It's like the person who can only type 20wpm wanting a faster word processor.

    No, typing is dependent on skill. Increasing the processor speed makes screen transitions faster/smoother, scrolling through the app drawer faster/smoother and games run better as well.

    To the credit of droidxer... oc-ing does make things smoother if you can find an "optimum" speed and voltage. My D1's optimum was 1.1 ghz on raidzero's LV kernel... ran like a champ. If I went lower voltage (without decrease in clock speed) or higher clock speed (without increase in voltage) it would not run as smoothly.

    If I had to guess, the optimum clock speed of the RAZR is somewhere between 1.4 and 1.6. Just a guess but just judging from experience w ti-omap chipsets.

    And the Razr does have some VERY cpu-intensive transitions and lockscreen. Not often, but every now and then i could use a little additional headroom. But don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. This phone is fast as crap especially compared to my d1 lol

    I gave my bro my d1 and got him setup on cm and got it running crazy smooth. Crazy fast transitions and awesome battery life (25+ hours... so jealous) but it can't touch the RAZR when it comes to sheer power (gpu and io)

    I rooted my razr today, and I might be wrong because I'm new at all this,
    but before I had to restore my phone I had to restore my phone because of fonts that I changed,
    I had the app Rom toolkit and there's two sliders to make a minimum and a maximum speed,
    I didn't have the money for the set CPU app, I think the speed went up to 1200,
    I was surprised by the smoothness of the games and transitions, I have alot to learndancedroid

    Xda? Forget them. Rootzwiki baby. Overclocking WITH voltage control. Bionics.. thrills and rzrs and atrixses laying down sgs 2 shattering benchmarks. I got 1.375 ghz. Laid down 7400 cfbench. Check it out moto lovers! taka is the man too, very helpful.. he helped alot on milestone oc modules. And he is also a rzr owner. But helped me alot with my bionic. Looks like top score thus far is a bionic at 1700mhz .. but it has stability issues.. linpacks suffer. But he laid down SERIOUSE #s in cfbench and antutu.. can anyone say hello asus Prime #s?
