    Probably no higher than the Nexus One seeing that it is the same SoC. The Nexus One is stable between 1.113 to 1.168 Ghz on average. Anything higher and you will either be unstable, unbootable or cook the SoC.

    I would re-consider man. The Incredible is better than the Droid in a number of ways (Camera quality and speed, processor speed, design, much smoother experience, touch screen is much better, and HTC Sense). If you like the vanilla android OS just wait a few months and get one of the next Android phones to come out. The Droid is getting close to the end of its retail life cycle.

    To my knowledge, NOBODY has yet been able to get a kernel installed on the DI yet. So much is locked down....even with root.

    Yep, but aside from nuking city id, there aren't a lot of reasons to even mess with it yet.
