    That is probably the best explanation of what those numbers mean.


    Yes, that is a symptom of a voltage that is too low and the CPU and or Memory failing to work as expected.

    Finally tried something and took setcpu off the phone completely. Honestly, the phone seems to run better with better battery life. I'm starting to get the impression that the closer to stock you can run (i.e. no setcpu, stock launcher, stock browser, etc) the better the phone will perform and the better the battery life.

    For reference I'm now using Pete's GPA14 with his stock 600mhz sv kernel. Phone runs great! Great battery too. I've been running the battery for 7 hours at the time of this composition and the battery is at 80%. So I'm bi-winning!

    My conclusion. Keep as close to stock as you can! Don't modify settings (i.e. setcpu, taskkillers, memory optimers, etc) that Google didn't intend. Of course, these are just the opinions from a tech laymen, but I turn them over to the viewing audience of this forum nonetheless.

    First off, Google has nothing to do with the design of these phones; only the software, and not as much as you might think. Secondly, you're preventing your phone from running Flash by running the 600MHz kernel. Flash requires 800MHz on a Linux platform, which is why Motorola put an 800MHz kernel on these phones for FroYo -- the phone only "naturally" clocks up to 800MHz when you're running Flash no matter what you're doing if you're not overclocking, so it tops out at 600MHz anyway. Third, if you're not overclocking the phone then you're not sucking the battery dry any faster than if you were stock from the CPU, so... Bi-win all you want. Overclocking the phone, even with a low-voltage kernel, is still overclocking and drawing more juice than 600MHz stock. Period. :)

    @aggiechase37 with that logic why root at all? Or download apps for that matter.
