    Anyone run the Droid at 1ghz for at least a week can confirm that it's stable at that speed?

    I plan to run liquid nitrogen and push it to 2ghz.

    As you can see, I'll loose a little portability, but the speed gains are so worth it.

    My concern with Over-Clocking would be the amount of stress placed on the hardware. I have a feeling that Over-Clocking would shorten the life span of the phone.

    hahaha too funny...

    I have been at 800 for a while, then 1000 for the past week or so, working great. Smooth and fast, and not really any high temps. Using Chevy's kernel. One issue is sometimes youtube videos wont play, they begin, then randomly stop even tho they are loading fine. Then I have to back out and try again... annoying. Someone told me this was a kernel issue? I dono.

    I ran chevy's kernel for a couple weeks and noticed that if I set the clock speed back to 550 the videos would work for me, don't know if it'll help in your case.

    BTW been running 1.1 since SG6.0 was released, totally stable with no heat issues.

    I will try that, but that's annoying man if I have to change my clocking every time I wanna see a video... AdamZ kernels good? I never tried any of them.

    I'm using the 1.1 kernel that came with smoked glass 6.0 and it's been great, also heard good things about his low voltage kernels as well, but I've been happy with what I've got, no reason to change now. And no problems with video either since I've been running it. Couldn't get through youtube or videos from my sdcard without errors before.

    I've been running 1.2GHz since the first 1.2GHz kernel came out. Now, I am running my own 1.2GHz kernel. Not a single problem at all after a couple of months. I think you're safe, if it's not stable you will know it. Lots of random FCs, graphical artifacts, random reboots, and random lockups are all signs that point to stability issues.

    I've been running at 1.5ghz (my own custom kernel) for over a month with not one single problem.
