    I currently just have root, I dont want any roms. Is there any way I can overclock my droid to 950 or whatever the recommend setting is? I have setCPU on my phone. Could anyone help a noob out? thanks

    Yup, you just need a custom overclock kernel. Right now id have to recommend adamz new kernel. It can be found on alldroid.org.

    The tutorial shows you how in install the 1ghz.img

    What if I want 950 or 800, where do you find those at? And do I still follow the same instructions?

    get the app called "setcpu" from the market. then you can choose what speed you want to run at. it'll also let you set sleep, charging and other profiles.

    we also recommend "temp monitor" to monitor your cpu temp.

    get the one that will run at the fasts speed you are likely to want (actually, scratch that... just get the 1Ghz one)... those are just the max settings. You can set a lower temp (800 or 950) from setcpu. There should be a link on the guide to another guide that goes over all of that. If not just check out the devs site:

    the tutorial you gave me says to get oc1ghz.img. Are you saying even when I flash that I can still overclock it to 950 instead of 1ghz?

    your kind of confusing me on this.

    can anyone give me a proper guide on how to overclock my droid to 950. im just rooted, i dont want any roms or any **** on my phone, just wanna speed it up.

    thanks

    Download roothelper in the market and follow the instructions in the app's menu. It will flash the kernel for you.

    it's the same process, just use a different file. Read the threads, if you can't figure it out, don't do it

    ^+ OP no offense but everything you need is in those links... Set CPU is what controls the speed... if you can't figure it out between those two posts you should take some tome and learn more about what you're doing. I'm not a fan of rooting apps and installers for this very reason.... some things are just not for everyone, good luck, hope you get it worked out (again all the info is right there)

    I've never really used it before so I'm not able to give much advice. I do know that the app offers instructions somewhere within it's menu. If it says to place something in the root of your sd card, it means to put it on the "home page" (if you're using astro).

    Ok I used to SholesMod Updater to root my phone, so I'm currently running SholesMod 2.0.5. The rom says tt has 8 cpufreq slots (250/500/600/700/800/1000/1100/1200) based on a patch by t3hSteve.

    I'm not familiar with what settings to use. I want to use 800 or 1000, is that safe? If i set it to 1ghz what should i make the MIN? I don't know what the MIN/MAX should be in the profiles settings eathier, like when the battery is charging, etc. Can someone recommend maybe their settings, that have worked well for them so I can have some idea of what to do.
