    I just have a stock Droid with 2.1. I got a score of 368 which is slightly higher than than the Moto Droid shown on the chart. Is my slightly higher score due to having 2.1 where the stock Droid came with 2.0.1? I will be very curious as to how much Froyo increases my totally stock Droid.

    Not 1100+ w/ stock kernel. With the stock 550Mhz Kernel a Droid will hit low 800's. Which is still a marked improvement from the 360'ish scores a stock 2.1 Droid gets now.

    initial install of froyo with no kernel and no apps installed I hit 1090.
    thats better than the 702 max I could get out of my cm5071 running at 1.1ghz

    I'm very interested in this as well. Regardless of how much I OC I can't get the Droid to run as smooth at my friends Nexus 1. Running "Stock" Froyo how does the homescreen scrolling feel?

    My DROID: 1242
    My Rooted EVO: 580

    I'm running overclock widget instead of SetCPU, and seeing how far that takes me, some guy on his EVO (with normal use he says) got 21hrs of battery with 49% remaining. I'm testing both my EVO and my Droid.

    sorry to double post but i can't edit my message....hmmm...

    If you meant the actual word Froyo, then I think it's short for frozen yogurt.

    Indeed it is. That's why in the More Froyo thread there's a cup of yogurt. Next one is Gingerbread. After that I'm shooting for Pound Cake or Cream Wafer. ;)

    downloading and installing a kernal from this site looks pretty straight forward. Anything I need to know before I do this? I am currently running 2.2. Also I see that the wifi and usb tethering requires a separate program. What do you have to do to make this work, or what program is needed?
