    Got greedy for power =[

    Last night I downloaded an overclock app on the marketplace names Droid X/2 Overclock by JRummy76. The app got really good reviews and lots of people found it stable. So I thought, why not try it.

    After I download it and launch it up, I set it to overclock at 1450. Ran fine for the first 5 minutes, then **** went FUBAR. lol. Everything I pressed and every function I tried was delayed by about 6-8 seconds. Extremely sluggish. So I set it back to factory speeds and uninstalled + refunded. I thought that would fix it...

    With it off of my phone, setCPU still recognizes the overclock and has it as an available speed. Powering on the phone takes about 7 minutes!!!! And sometimes it still doesn't act right after a long battery pull power up.

    And ideas or help to get my phone back to the way it was is much appreciated! Thanks!

    all user data and installed apps. paid apps will be under downloads in the market.

    since its froyo, the market should also start pushing all ur current apps back to you.

    to get back on task about this thread, 1.45ghz is extremely OC'd, maybe you should do some reading before expecting your phone to operate@a daily level@that frequency.

    How have lower clocked speeds worked for you? Have you tried? 1.45 is probably close to the MAX or + you'll get out of the Droid X on average.

    Try different speeds, but try them for a full days(or 2) of usage to see how it works for you!

    Anywho, goodluck and have fun!

    ps. refunding your $ doesn't uninstall the modifications. If you want i'll get you back to stock if you email me, or use the app again to put you there.

    other wise SBF to a clean image, and start again :)


    this time don't set it to boot, until you've done a thorough evaluation of the set Speeds

    No thanks. Im not interested in overclocking. The only reason why I did it was because it was right there in front of me in the market and everyone said (on the comments) that it was very stable at 1450.

    But like I said, I don't want to overclock. 1GHz is more than enough for me as I rarely run on even that. With setcpu, I never set it past 800 and thats only until the battery reaches 80%. Its been doing great for me and my battery.

    All right guys, I dont think a factory reset is gonna work because I have been trying to setup this phone for about 30 minutes now after the factory reboot. It's still extremely slow in the setup process. If I ever get it setup, I'll let you guys know how it behaves.

    Yea there seems to be alot of issues overclocking too much, heck some people are having trouble overclocking with ApeX up to just 1.1, but I am at 1.1 and with the Right ROMs and the bloat ware gone it is smooth as it can be.
    And I hear you should avoid Oc'ing at boot cause sometimes it get weird.

    Hope you can bring that thing back to life.

    Your either going to have to reinstall the app and reset it back to stock using the app (stock setting in there) or SBF recovery back to stock.

    You gotta take that stuff slow....dont plow straight for the highest setting.

    My X for example has been running @ 1.45ghz for 3 days now and SCREAMS...but I went 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.45 to see what it could take, just so happens I can get 1.45 running Rubix 1.0 ROM.
