    I have been working on overclocking my d2g using droid overclock, however I am getting less speed once the phone is overclocked, I have tried all kinds of different voltage frequency combinations. Is there a specific thing I need to change in the app before trying to overclock? It seems as though the app seems to input voltages and frequencies based off the droid 2 processor which is 200mhz slower than the d2g. Any ideas guys?

    D2G CPU is not only 200MHz faster than D2, but uses 5 steppings instead of 4 on the D2. D2G defaults to 300,600,800,1000,1200, on demand governor.
    Droid overclock isn't fully compatible with D2G. I've read someone else experiencing reverse effect when trying to overclock.
    On another note (IMO of course) - I never felt I need to overclock the D2g, at least for now :)

    I use D2 Overclock to undervolt my phone. I've had some success using the new experimental module enabled. I haven't felt the need to overclock this thing, It's pretty fast. Out of curiosity what are the default "vsel" values for the D2G. I've searched around but this info seems to be a bit elusive. And I don't think D2OC is giving me an accurate readout. When I apply settings and then look at /proc/overclock/mpu_opps, they seem to be applied correctly. But who knows... I probably ought to just wait for a native app for this sort of thing, but what can I say, I get bored.

    I couldn't find way to read the default vsel selections. I am afraid we may need to look at kernel source for that. I don't think it is available though...

    A quickest and easiest way to over clock is to use the over clock app that jrummy have on the market.

    5 steppings would make sense as far ax why the slowdown. Was just kind of curious if y'all had anything up and running, will keep playing and see what I figure out

    Yup, thats the app I'm talking about, jrummy's Droid 2 Overclock, the problem is that it isn't a real D2G app but more of a patched D2 app.

    The only thing I really use it for now is to have a set profile to halve my max processor speed and alert me if the temp goes over 46C/114F. I've got a rubber case on this thing that i'm sure insulates it a good deal. I live in the Mid-Atlantic Region (US), so being towards the end of winter, heat is no issue. However, as the summer rolls around I'm afraid I'm gonna have to ditch this case. I wonder if there are any nice cases made from conductive materials... Anyway, other than that, I've come to the personal conclusion that using D2OC is a little too wonky right now to really change my core voltage or clock speed as a default running profile. I do like the state dependent profiles though, like temperature.
