    Yeaaah. I followed your instructions and downloaded bekit Kernals (0.8.4). I downloaded and when it goes to reboot, I get the phone image with the exclamation mark inside a triangle image on the boot up screen and it hangs. Then I have to just hit the power button to reboot it after that.

    When loading ROM Manager after this, I get a Recovery Failure screen.

    I hope I'm doing something wrong. :(

    Any advice?

    Those using one button rooting and are unfamiliar with rooting:



    It would be hypocritical of me to tell people to not use that method, since the reason I got into rooting today was because of the sholesmod updater app. I understand the fear at times that you could mess up your device so you want a method to get to root with out all the "oh craps".
    I am by no means a tech geek, but I do as much research as I can to help make the process easy to understand.
    If you are not gonna learn what you did then you are hurting yourselves. Use the method, but learn what is going on so you can get yourself out of a jam.

    Good luck, and if you have any questions stop by the RS section.

    Do I need to wipe data and cache? That's the one thing i hate doing.

    I hate losing my apps, and having to set-up my phone when doing this.

    Bought the app. I did a power off and restart and a battery pull and a restart but the phone does automatically load the easy root start page. What am I doing wrong.
    It is a two day old X if that matters.
    Am I misunderstanding the reboot process?
    Thanks in advance.

    NOTICE FOR ALL NEW ROOTERS LOOKING TO USE ONE OF THE OVERCLOCK KERNELS:

    First off, you must be aware that overclocking your Droid could cause damage to your phone. Every droid is different -- some will go to 1.3Ghz, some won't go above 800Mhz, and a very unlucky few might not be able to push their phones past 600Mhz. With that in mind, if you still want to try, start slowly and work your way up.

    DIFFERENT KERNELS HAVE DIFFERENT VOLTAGES AND OTHER FEATURES.

    For example, P3Droid has kernels that clock as low as 125Mhz and otherwise-identical kernels that only go down to 250Mhz. The reason for this is poor performance under 2.1 that was fixed for 2.2. Pick whichever ones you want based on that.

    ChevyNo1 has Ultra-Low-Voltage, Low-Voltage, and Standard-Voltage kernels with a plethora of features built in. Ultra-Low-Voltage kernels use less juice to push your phone's CPU faster, ultimately saving you some of the battery life you're sacrificing by running it so fast. Not all phones can handle the ULV or even the LV kernels common to overclocking on the Droid, and some phones will run very poorly on some kernels. The trick is experimenting.

    There are so many kernels out there you should be able to find one that works with your phone... But there's no guarantee your phone will be able to go that fast.

    The most common problem faced by overclockers is stability or the dreaded bootloop. If you get locked in a bootloop pull the battery, put it back in, hold down X on the keyboard, then power the phone back up so you can boot into recovery and reinstall the nandroid backup you made prior to installing the new kernel.

    You did remember to make a nandroid backup before you installed the new kernel, didn't you?

    MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE YOU FLASH IN ANY KERNEL, ROM, THEME, ETC.

    I think that one's self-explanatory.

    Consider reading http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hacking-faqs/47871-overclocking-101-a.html for more detail on tweaking SetCPU settings.

    Good luck!

    I used this today and it rooted on my second attempt. It was worth the $1. Now to figure out what the heck I can do with a rooted phone other than kill ads and tether.
