    I currently have it set to 800Mhz maximum, scaling.

    The kernel I used is at:

    P3Droid Kernels

    No Custom ROM. So just installed the kernel on top of my rooted 2.1.

    Now, after a day, I feel no significant increase in speed at 800 Mhz Max. Is it ok to go to 900 or even 1000?

    I have the profile set so that when it's sleeping its 250 Mhz.

    Also, with this setup, can I still go back to my stock 2.1 with the ORIGINAL kernel by restoring my nandroid backup (created right after I rooted, but before installing the new kernel) from SPRecovery?

    I went straight to 1000Mhz right after rooting and installing an overclocking kernal. Ran that way for about 2 weeks and then went and tried 1200Mhz.....no luck with that as it would reboot after running for a few minutes. Dropped it to 1100Mhz and it's been running fine for a month at least....

    i go between 800 and 1000 and have absolutely no problems. it actually seems to run cooler at 1000.

    i believe you should be able to go back with no problem.

    Ok. Cool.

    What other cool things I can do with a rooted phone? I already got the Wifi tether.

    yea I'm in the same boat as everyone else here. I used to run at 800 for a while, now i run at 1000 and have noticed no adverse effects at all. And I've also noticed a fairly significant increase in performance relative to 800.

    You shouldnt have any problem going to 900 or even 1000. I'm running 1.1GHz without a problem.

    I tried 1300 after running 1100 for what seems like a long time. Tried it just to see how it was. Had the same issue with rebooting. After 4 of those I held in the X key and nandroid restored. I tried 800 for a week or so at first, and also saw no real difference.

    moral: make backups and you can use backups when things go south.

    I run at 1.1GHz while connected to the outlet. Otherwise I use the stock speed for better battery life. Also from my experience using a low voltage kernel will help lower the temps :)

    Oh cool I missed that post (or maybe I just forgot about it lol). How is your battery life? I normally can get 1D6Hrs with light-moderate usage running at 550MHz although it does get laggy sometimes.
