    I'm not sure how they get that hi, but make sure you shut down all the background running services as well. That will give you a boost.

    That's called a program exploit. Nobody has a real score that high.

    Some of them did. You gotta look at what device their using. The top two if I remeber correctly are computers running Android in a VM.

    Now that's interesting. I sure didn't realize ppl were running Android on their computers. I'm running VMWare Workstation and they don't show Android as a supported Guest OS. I guess it's time to start googling. Thanks.

    The Android SDK has an emulator that will let you run a virtual device on you desktop.

    Ahhh. Thanks for the clarification.
    I was hoping I could do things like, install SPRecovery into a VM, do nandroid restores into that VM, customize and test, then do a nandroid backup which I could then restore on the phone. I must have been dreaming. lol.

    That would be amazing. We here at droidhacks need to make this possible.

    Exactly. Your post got my wheels turning as I started to think about the possibilities. I mean, VMWare WS supports all sorts of Linux variants as the guest OS. If we could boot up Android in that VM I don't see why this wouldn't work. i.e. the SDK says it runs on Linux. Ubuntu is all they tested but isn't Android just another Linux ?

    Install Android OS, Flash Recovery, nandroid restore. EZZZPZZZ

    We could then create virtual drives of \sdcard. droooool.

    OP, sorry about hijacking your thread. I will now cease and desist.

    But, if you want 50 mflops, this would do the trick. Can you say 70, 80, ...

    That would be awesome if you could virtualize android for testing. I'm all about modding but I just got my droid yesterday and after I (my have) broke(n) my xbox 360 by doing the JTAG exploit I'm a little leary of doing anything that can possibly brick an expensive device...

    There is a bug in linpack that occasionally returns unreasonable scores as well (though not 50mflops, that's a hack/vm) I randomly got 10.9 @800mhz no JIT a couple months ago.

    Thanks again Billy,
    I'm currently downloading the .3 torrent of LiveAndroid and am up to 56 P2P users sharing. I'm obviously the only one that didn't know.:)

    The source is of great interest. Talking about being a noob. All this is just out there if you know where to find it.

    Thank you.
    John
