    So I've been experiencing a strange problem that I've never had before... I've tried several kernels, and the same thing happens for each...

    I am on CM 6.1.2 currently, with SetCPU installed as well, with no profiles setup. I really prefer the OC settings nested in the ROM settings or in the Spare Parts app, but CM doesn't have it that I could see, so I installed SetCPU pretty much only to be able to track my CPU.

    I have tried toggling "set on boot" and intermittently using the "auto-detect" settings, and it hasn't worked. If I move the MAX slider down a little, then move it back to max, it works for a while before it reverts back to 600.

    I've used ChevyNo1's ULV latest kernels (2nd gen bootlooped for me), Slayher's 1.6 and 1.7 SLV kernels, cvpcs 1.1GHz LV (ran HOT)...each was either 1000 MHz or 1100 MHz, but after a little while (less than an hour) my SetCPU widget shows that the MAX is set to 600. I open up SetCPU, click on "autodetect" and then move the slider to the max like I've always done. 30-45 minutes later, right back where I was @ 600. I'm also on the ondemand governor by default, since chevyno1's latest kernels don't have interactive (unless somewhere knows where I can grab them!...?)

    Very frustrating, but I don't want to ditch CM over it, because it has some fun features. And the only ROM comparable in terms of features is UD which is bug hell imo (or heaven...depending on if you're the bug or a user...lol).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone else experience this problem? Know of any potential fixes?

    (I wiped 3x with install and am running the GB theme, but it has done it all along, not just with the theme. No other heavy-duty mods. Running LP instead of ADW.)

    Thanks in advance!!

    I experienced that problem sort of when I was playing with the milestone overclock app and custom overclocking scripts. When I would unload the overclock module it would revert to 600 Mhz even though I was using the 800 Mhz default kernel. Have you been messing around with the Milestone OC app at all? If not maybe your phone is unloading the overclock module for some other reason. You could try going back to the stock kernel and using a custom OC script as outlined in this thread, maybe that will help you fix your problem, plus you will be using the stock CM kernel overclocked to whatever you want. I think someone even listed the vsel values for Chevy's kernels in the thread so you can copy those if you liked the Chevy ULV kernels. I have been using this method to OC rather than getting a new kernel from someone else and it has been running great for me. Good luck.

    You guys sound like you could be past this potential "problem" but when you set your speeds while unplugged from power or usb, then plug in, even with no profiles the phone speed will default at least on the low end. Worth checking?

    Also since you came from another rom maybe you still have left over files in your /system/lib/modules folder that are causing problems. You said you wiped 3x, I'm assuming that you mean you wiped data and cache? You can also use clockworkmod recovery to format the system partition, which would hopefully help get rid of any leftover stuff in /system from your old rom. When I was setting up my custom OC I followed this tutorial, which tells you to delete a bunch of extraneous .ko files in the /system/lib/modules folder and then you can install a fresh copy of the required modules. I had several extra .ko files when I followed the procedure but none of them were loaded when I typed lsmod so I deleted everything in that folder and installed the new files as per the instructions. Maybe if you clear out that folder and reinstall the stock kernel as they talk about in the tutorial it will help solve some of your problems.

    Thanks for the quick replies! I re-flashed slayher's v1.6 1.1ghz slv kernel again over chevy's (11/5) 1.1ghz ulv and got it working again by setting my governor back to interactive (my preference). I did that around noon and it hasn't acted up since...so I'm thinking its fixed.

    I'm not sure what the problem was, but my best guess is that something with the ondemand governor was off with that particular kernel. Perhaps it's because I've flashed that kernel a million times since it's my kernel of choice or if it was something else but I'll try to duplicate the issue and report back later tonight.

    It was doing it whether I was plugged in or not, so I don't believe it was related to that. Also, I didn't see any funky scripts in my module directory (nothing said "hey it's me!), but I suppose it could use some maintenance just in case :)

    Thanks again for the help! :icon_ banana:

    I started over from scratch(wiped everything including the system partition) last night and tried the same kernel and it was stable. Must've been leftover junk in mu /system/lib/modules folder.

    Thanks for all the ideas. Glad it's all good now bc CM is just too cool to give up on!
