    I know this is covered 1000 times but i can't quite find my issue on this forum. I've searched numerous times and can't find it.

    My system temp constantly runs at 90f+ when the phone is being used in any way, even reach 120f. When i got these temps i was using setcpu to overclock it, max was 1000ghz and min was 800mhz or sometimes 550mhz. I removed setcpu to run normal speeds because im scared of overheating my phone.

    Are my temps when using setcpu too high?

    I dont quite understand how some people run 1000ghz constantly and stay below 100f. Why is my phone running so hot?

    Only sometimes does my phone reach over 100f. I run my phone at 900 mhz and when it starts getting really hot, I let it cooldown for a bit.

    Yeah mine will peak like 120f from doing certain things.

    But during normal use its usually 90-100f i dont get why. It hasn't gotten that high since i removed setcpu though.

    Honestly even running 1000ghz my phone didnt seem "faster" or anything.

    Well, while mine is charging, it is set to 1.25 ghz and it never overheats. Only when I use it for a while does it start getting hot. I actually do see a difference with the screen sliding and opening of apps. I also have a set profile to make it 125 mhz while the screen is off. Currently mine is running at 86.0F with it being at 1.25 ghz and it has been that temp for hours.

    Those temps are pretty high. I recommend setting your minimum to 250 MHz and using OnDemand. Why force your phone to run faster than it needs? You could also try using different kernels: I personally use AdamZ's low voltage 1 GHz, but many people also have success with ChevyNo1's kernels. Try lowest voltage first and make sure they are compatible with your ROM. On that note, what ROM are you running?

    Sadly, i'm not sure what you mean by kernels. All ive done is rooted my phone, and installed the UltimateDroid Rom and still running that.

    I just continuously used the phone, looked at apps, removed apps, added widgets etc for 5+ minutes and the max temp it hit was 87f. (thats with stock speeds NO overclocking)

    Okay, what version of UltimateDroid? is it V8?

    If so, it is 2.1 based (ESE53)

    This will help me lead you to the next step.

    Addition: Do you have SPRecovery, or Clockwork?

    Great! I may be able to help then...

    Download this file: http://alldroid.org/roms/motorola/droid/adamz/glass_boots/Smoked.Glass.Boot.ESE53.rom.tgz from a computer using Firefox. Mount your phone to your computer and transfer the file to the root directory of your sd card (not inside any folder). Now you can unmount from the computer and turn off sd storage from the phone.

    Next, do an advanced nandroid backup of everything.

    Once that is complete, choose "Install" in nandroid
    -Then "Choose ROM from SD card"
    -Then choose "Smoked.Glass.Boot.ESE53.rom.tar"
    -Choose low voltage
    -Choose your speed (you mentioned 1000 max previously)

    Once this completes, you can use the power button to go back, and reboot.

    See how your temps are with this new kernel.

    Edit: I should specify that this will not change your /system or /data, this is not an actual ROM.
    You will not see any visible changes, just be sure to autodetect in SetCPU.

    New Edit: Going to bed, but I will check back tomorrow to see how this went for you. Good luck!

    Alright i might give that a go. Can i adjust the speed once its booted up and such or can you only choose one speed when installing the "rom" ?

    I just played "Armored Strike" for a good 10 minutes and the max temp was 96f on stock speed (no overclocking) That still too high?

    And i really appreciate your help!

    You can adjust the speed, but it will only go to 1 ghz max if you pick that option. I recommend Chevyno1's 10 slot kernel though

    Correct, you can adjust. Options would be 250, 400, 600, 800, 1000.

    96f is not too hot. 110f for extended periods would be too hot for me, but probably wouldn't do damage.

    Yes, I have heard good things about Chevy's kernels as well.
    I just gave him what works for me so far, but Chevy's update.zip kernels are pretty easy to install also.

    Now, good night :)

    I think you are supposed to pick that option while you are installing it, but I wouldn't know as I have not played with voltages yet.

    Alright i installed the smoked.glass "rom" as suggested and re-installed setcpu.

    I have setcpu set at 1000mhz max and 550mhz min. I didnt adjust voltage because i dont know how and it never gave me an option to when i installed smoked.glass.

    The phone does seem to be running cooler though, after messing around with some stuff i have yet to see it go over 90f even when talking on the phone.

    How do i adjust the voltage?

    I don't think you need to worry about the voltage if your over heating problem is fine.

    I did this:

    "Once that is complete, choose "Install" in nandroid
    -Then "Choose ROM from SD card"
    -Then choose "Smoked.Glass.Boot.ESE53.rom.tar"

    I did that and then rebooted, i assumed the low voltage thing was in that "rom" ...??
