Can i overclock my droid without installing a ROM? I am rooted if it matters.
Yes. Just get a nandroid backup and Advanced Nandroid Backup and only select boot, or you can use ADB to push the file to your phone
If you are rooted just download one of Taz's kernels and SetCPU.
Where do I get a new kernel. I searched but all I can come up with is topics about over clocking profiles.
Crap, I can't remember where I saw the link last. I use bugless beast which comes with the latest 1GHz kernel.
Check out the forums here for droid roms
AllDroid - View topic - Droid is stable at 800MHz. Nuff said *950MHz, 1.1GHz added*
Theres the boot.img and nandroid backups. I suggest SetCPU from market, its only a buck, but if you CANT pay, look for it on XDA's site. 1.1ghz and up can lead you into a bootloop, cause some phones cant take it, I recommend 1ghz.
Here are the Taz kernels which are currently the newest and probably the best:
AllDroid - View topic - [Release] TazKernel 1.3GHz and TempMonitor Reborn (02/06/10)
They work with TempMonitor to display the CPU proc temp (unlike other's which rely on the Battery temp).
Droid Root Pro now has a few overclocks 600 800 900 950 1 1.1 1.31 just DL it off the market
would i be able to use this in place of a new kernel?
I'm kinda new to this whole thing, but it just installs a boot.img, so I hope that answers your question? Only kernel I know of is of corn, so yea, only started this whole "hacking" concept last week when I decided to mess with my phone.
