    Freewell from Android forums posted this tutorial, now this is for the DROID X, ima play and see if I can do it on the droid 2.

    Milestone Overclock Module 1.2t (nadlabak's patch) w/ Memory Locations for DroidX 2.2 Added by FreeWELL

    Credits:
    Tiago Sousa aka Mirage: for The Milestone Overclock Project
    nadlabak: for patching in Froyo/2.2 Support
    FreeWELL: for finding DroidX 2.2 memory locations/module compilation

    Notes:

    I'm trying to keep this as close as possible to the way it was done on 2.1. For me, 2.2 seems to need a little more voltage to be stable than it was under 2.1. I've included two versions of setscaling.sh to start from.

    setscaling.sh is set to stock voltages/clock speed

    setscaling100.sh is set to stock voltages w/100mhz bump accross the board to 400/700/900/1100 (This appears to be stable for me, and is the baseline for my testing/tuning)



    Install Instructions

    adb/terminal:
    $ su
    # cd /sdcard/extracted/droidx_22_oc (or wherever you extracted the files to)
    # mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mcblk1p21 /system
    # cp overclock.ko /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
    # cp setscaling.sh /system/xbin/setscaling.sh
    # chmod 644 /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
    # chmod 755 /system/xbin/setscaling.sh

    <optional(only do after thoroughly testing what works for your DroidX in setscaling.sh)>
    # cp install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    # chmod 755 /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    </optional>

    # mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mcblk1p21 /system


    Run Instructions

    adb/terminal:

    $ su
    # insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
    # setscaling.sh

    I just saw that, very cool! if they can do it we most likely can, the only difference may be the memory locations. I wish I could play around with this now, but I'm on a business trip and can't risk roasting my phone.

    The CPUs are different so overclocking with the DX method most likely won't work with the D2. A different method or an edit method has to be discovered.

    I don't really care about OC, 1ghz is fine imo, I do however care about undervolting. Anyone figure this out yet?

    its a matter of time someone will put a tutorial together. Just need more people to play around with it and someone will figure out what in the instructions needs to be modified to work on the d2.
