    Okay, I have redrum with Clean Black running on P3 900mhz kernel solidly.

    I've attempted the stock kernel, P3 1k, 1.1k and one other, all of Chevy's low volt kernels from THIS thread, again to no avail.

    I am beginning to think it's the limitation of my phone, but I was curious if anyone has had any experience with any other kernels that are 1k/+ I might attempt to get working.

    Thanks guys!

    I can't speak for all kernels, but if it is a limitation of your phone, here's what I believe I remember. On a lot of kernels, the voltage isn't really increased until you go over 800mHz, so possibly going over that by a given amount is what is causing your phone to have issues with the OC? Maybe it can't handle the voltage increase.

    Just a possibility to consider.

    I'm running RedRum and I tried to install Bekits 1.1 GHz kernal but I got stuck at the "M" logo at the reboot

    From what I've read about that: Those are made for Cyanogen and ... Pete(I think) modded them for his ROM.

    I don't think those will work on redrum unless Team Chaos modifies them.

    That's what I am thinking, but I am no means smart at this stuff.

    But if that's the case and the magic number is 800, why can I run at 900 w/o any problem?

    I thought it was the launcher, so I went to helix launcher2 and that has been wonderful.

    I just don't really know what to do to get past this; honestly, I don't even need to, it's just making me mad >.<

    Yeah, I noticed you said it worked at 900 for you. I'm not sure exactly when the voltage increases happen, and how much the increase is for each step above a certain point. But, maybe there is only a very slight increase at 900, and your phone is good with that, but anything over that is when it starts to get angry with you :p

    I haven't finished rewritting the articles to remove all references to a particular rom set but it might help you understand what is going on.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/blackdroid/31461-over-clocking-101-concert-blackdroid-roms.html

    There are subsections to explain how Voltage plays a part in overclocking and why each Droid is unique.

    Going to read this right now. The maybe I can get a better understand why I can't get over 900 with the kernels I've tried so far.

    Ah, I knew some of this, but the stuff I didn't makes much more sense now.

    I'll have to go try out some medium kernels now and see what it does.

    Thanks a ton!

    Edit: Actually since my phone operates perfectly at the Low Volt 900, I am going to stick with it. No reason to pump up the heat ratio to make it go any faster when it's already fast with this.

    I feel much more informed and I like that. Thanks again, man :)
