    So I am rooting my droid with froyo and I was wondering if there an app that can overclock a Droid with froyo? Preferably a free app? I hear setCPU might be able to do it, but that costs money.

    Thanks

    The Dev's who put together apps like this work hard and deserve the few dollars it costs to purchase their apps....SetCPU is the Original and as far as I know the only app that governs and overclocks your CPU and is a must have for O/C'ers

    You will also need an OverClocking Kernel (free)

    ya I know setCPU is the best one, and 1.99 is fine. I am just wondering if it for sure works with froyo on a Droid 1. I dont want to root until I know for sure that it works.

    Thanks

    Check out OverClocking 101 post #3 if you want to see it in action on Froyo 2.2.

    Therre are many people on here overclocked with Froyo without a problem.


    OP - If you want to overclock up to 800 mhZ you won't need a custom kernel, but anything over that you will.

    ya I am using universal androot and setCPU. Question about that though: If I want to be clocked at a certain level when my battery is between 100-75, 75-50, 50-25 and 25-0 do I add priorities in that order or do I make the highest priority 25-0, and lowest priority 100-75? Not really sure how the whole priority thing works..

    Higher the number, higher the priority. Check out the overclocking 101 thread, it explains things quite well.

    ya that makes sense. so battery < 100 should have a high priority. Then I just read somewhere else that says when using multiple battery levels make low battery lives a higher priority. Also in the picture in the overclocking 101 thing ist has battery < 21 a higher priority than battery < 41

    So you are saying I should use something like this?

    battery < 100 priority 90
    battery < 75 priority 80
    battery <50 priority 70

    Thanks

    Honestly? I'd set a screen off profile as highest priority, high temp as next highest and then battery (and 21 being higher is to make sure it triggers).

    so if I have something like:

    screen off: xx max/xx min Priority 100
    temp > : xx max/xx min Priority 90
    Charging/Full: xx max/xx min Priority 80
    battery < 25%: xx max/xx min Priority 70

    then what would it default to if I am playing a game, or on the internet or doing anything with battery > 25%?

    Thanks
