    Hello,

    this is my first post here but i've stalked these forums quite a bit in the past. After so long of waiting and doubt and all the excitement for the delayed FroYo update for the Motorola Droid I finally decided to just root my phone.

    The process went well and after about a week or so of enjoying the wonderful capabilities of my newly rooted phone, I read about "overclocking"

    Per instruction on a different site, I opened up Rom Manager, went into developer mode, and downloaded the BeKit Kernel from Cyanogen Mod to overclock my phone. The guide said to reboot and let the phone install the kernels. It also said when they were done installing the phone would reboot and voila, enjoy my overclocked droid. the only problem is now I am stuck at the Motorola boot logo (M) and I cant do anything. Someone please help?

    Thanks much, all the info I can get is greatly appreciated!

    -Los

    Reboot into recovery and flash a backup.

    that helped! I thought I was smarter than that I don't know why I didn't think to do that before I wasted anyones time. one more question then if I may:

    How DO I properly overclock this son of a gun? I am running android 2.2 I believe its JRummy's Froyo Kangarade V5.0.9

    Thanks again so much!

    You just have to find a Froyo compatible kernel that is in an any-rom format. On a side note, do you operate heavy machinery?

    Go here and download a Froyo Kernel. If you have problems with a LV, then get a SV, just try them out and see what works for you. You are also going to need Setcpu. Because your name is Motograter, that is a piece of equipment.

    Ah, Thanks for the link going to try that soon. As for the name, when I was about 14 a band came out called Motograter, I always thought thats what they named the "instrument" they invented because they don't use bass guitars. For some reason at the time I thought they were the biggest thing ever ( boy was I wrong) and just always used this screen name.

    thanks for all your help again!
