    SetCPU
    I have the profiles set up in a similar fashion to what's described in the old OverClock 101 thread.
    edit:
    here's the actual-
    nominal- max 900MHz min 250 - on demand
    priority 100 screen off- 700/250 - conservative
    90 temp>53C- 550/250 - ondemand
    80 CPU>55C - 550/250 - on demand
    70 charging - 800/250 - on demand
    50 battery<5% - 550/250 - on demand
    I used to run ChevyNo1's 1GHzLV kernel, but then came to yours and haven't tried for anything 'custom' with it- just vanilla deprimed.
    Is there a tutorial around?
    I think I'd like to try bumping up the OC speed a little.

    Ah- google got me this how to
    Prime's Deprimed Test Kernel: How to - CyanogenMod Forum
    just started reading...

    ...edit...
    I recall your preference for the bumblebee governor, Prime. I tried it a while ago, but can't remember much about my configuration at the time. I was frustrated by it then, though, and that's what prompted the return to ondemand.
    Re-trying it out now for the nominal profile and it seems ok- can't judge accurately by feel if it's plus or minus, just that it works. So, I'll stay on it for a while and see how it goes.
    Meanwhile, I'm a bit confused regarding the custom setting of slot freqs and vsels. The how to I linked discusses in-depth the manual method of editing the slots for testing and solidifying the best results into the 20overclock file.
    Ok- I'd give it a go, but terminal entry is a bit daunting for me, so I started reading about the work done with Milestone Overclock app and how easy the app makes the process. The trouble is there seems to be a variety of versions of the app (some with your hand involved, Prime) and the posts are so old as to cause concern over what is the current 'best solution'.
    This tutorial for the app is causing my concerns-
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/cyanogenmod/107143-tut-milestone-oc-application-tut.html

    I'm not really interested in getting the most speed or least cpu voltage out of my Droid, just getting it so it doesn't crap out in times of need (incoming call or text, for example) while running the latest winner00 CM7 builds (which actually are a bit more stable than before). Towards this end, I'd most likely run numbers similar to averages of those in this thread-
    http://code.google.com/p/milestone-overclock/wiki/KernelModule

    I could go into detail on other aspects of my Droids current configuration, if the info would be of value to this discussion, just ask.

    Thanks very much for reading along- I appreciate your input greatly. I know at this time your attentions are best spent with your family and I wish you the best with the recovery.

    Hey Phonetool-

    I use Prime's Deprimed(previous) kernel, though I dont use the "overclock, primed, deprimed" commands. After installing a new Rom, I just drop a consolidated startup script in the init.d folder that contains the data from the 20overclock file.

    I do not use SetCpu anymore (big footprint), I simply set it in CM7 to use "On Demand" governor.

    The "stable" column of the table you linked to is a good starting point.

    I run the following:

    300/26
    450/32
    600/36
    700/42
    800/48
    900/56
    1000/62

    This seems to work for me, and are the values I've used for several months now. I stopped trying to get every milli-volt out of my battery a while back, and a min-300 wakes my phone up quickly.

    CM7 and the OG Droid have treated me well so far. I dont seem to have any deal-breaking issues, and it is stable for me.

    Zram/Compcache get laggy for me too quickly, so I use a swap partion (with its own set of issues).

    I have some "maintenance" scripts i run occasionally from Script Manager ie. a swap reset script, as well as scripts for changing the top-slot cpu speed/vsel. I boost it to 1200/78 to run titanium backup, fix permissions and other such stuff, then drop the top slot back down to 1000/62 when i'm done. Script manager is great... I have widgets to change my cpu slots...

    This is how *I* do it... and it works well for me. If you need further explanation on how or why. I can try to help.

    Hey thanks! I would definitely like to try your strategy. This weekend is very hectic for me, but next week I will contact you.

    I'm not ignoring you, I'm in the middle of moving and such and am simply busy. I will answer any questions I can when I have time.

    My wife is looking at me like I'm doing something wrong this very moment, she thinks there are other things I'm supposed to be doing that trump anything android related.

    No worries. I did not feel abandoned and know you're busy these days.
    I'm not stressed about my phone. It has the power to annoy me, but not anything more. ;)

    Prime -- you going for the Galaxy Nexus or going for something else? I love to but a kernel you've tweaked into one of these new phones.
