Try rolling back to Baseband C_01.41.00R it's more stable.
That's the one I have and it's fine. I didn't even know there was a newer one out there.
Could you explain how it gives the user more control? I see it as giving the user less control, specially with battery. Am I missing something?
it's the same as the old set cpu just looks different. You can still add in all you're profiles (battery and all the other profiles in the old version) and add in more if you see fit. You're no longer limited to the number of profiles the dev put.

Agree, this new version is way more customizable.
Assigning your own priorities to each profile and having as many profiles as you want is pretty controllable. Having the ability to have more than three battery profiles is probably the biggest addition, but I don't see the need for more than three battery profiles in the first place. Then again, I'm really lucky to have one of the phones that only reports battery life in 10% increments (note the sarcasm on lucky.) I found it a pain to set up, especially when I saw the fact that there were three different charging options for the profiles.
I'm sure some of the control freaks needed new shorts after getting the update, though.
Without the option of a conservative- or powersave-based profile I still don't see how this is really all that advantageous to the end-user who is interested in extending battery life while still having the option of ramping their phone up to max speed if it's needed. Frankly, I'd rather have seen those options added back in, but I already voiced my opinion on the extra battery profiles.
CPU frequency scaling governors are a function of your kernel, not of SetCPU. If conservative is missing, that is a result of it not being included in the kernel config - so I recommend trying a different kernel.
powersave and performance are worthless on mobile devices. They just force your processor to run at the slowest and fastest speeds (which for a droid kernel is typically something like 250 Mhz and 1 Ghz). Running at 250Mhz all the time with no ability to ramp up would probably end up making your phone unresponsive, and running at 1.0Ghz with no ability to scale down would probably make it overheat.
conservative and ondemand, however, are very useful, and I would like to urge anyone that makes and releases a kernel to include both of them.
I agree with performance being useless except for trying to get the highest Quadrant score possible, but some people run it 24/7 for some reason. Then again, some people think a Viper is a good commuter car. I beg to differ from your observation in that powersave ramped up for me under 2.1 using ChevyNo1's ULV kernels, it just did it much more conservatively.
Speaking of ChevyNo1's kernels, I'm running his 1.0Ghz ULV kernel under FRF57. I thought when SetCPU moved up to 1.6.0 those options were removed, not that ChevyNo1 removed them from his FroYo kernels.
I see what you mean. Maybe under heavy demand the CPU can ramp up anyway, no matter what it says? Doesn't matter right now because without it included it's a moot point.
I wonder why ChevyNo1 wouldn't include Conservative in his ULV kernels... I think I'll go ask or see if it's an issue with FRF57 like the CPU temperature monitoring.
He says he's going to look at putting Conservative back in. Thanks for the heads-up! I thought it was FroYo messing with my phone!
Froyo Native Email App - Select All?
I haven't gotten to getting a 2.2 build loaded but will definitely be pushed to do it if someone can tell me if the 'select all' or 'delete all' or at least 'empty trash' option has been added to the native email client?
I shake my head everytime I go in to an email folder and see the menu option of "Delselect All" when any emails are checked off. Deselect All? Really? but no 'Select All'?
