    downloaded an overclocking app, how should I set this thing up to make it work as best as possible? my phone is not rooted, will this app do anything without it being rooted?

    To overclock, you need to install a new kernel. To install a new kernel, you must be rooted. Sorry.

    Ivan's V7 rom

    I have my phone rooted and am using Ivans V7 rom and also have SetCPU... I don't know which is responsible, but I have a much better battery life than before without root... I have had my phone rooted for about 2 weeks and the last 5 or so days that I have run V7, I noticed a HUGE difference... like my phone would get unplugged at 6:30am and by 3 practically dead... not anymore... I have not charged my phone since all day since 6:30 am and just got below 20% at about 9pm... love it!.. but yeah no overclocking that I know of either... :(

    so far, i just have a rooted Android OS 2.1. Is there a way I could just simply overclock without installing a new ROM and all that?

    No, you need to flash a new kernel that will allow overclocking.

    You do NOT need to install a new ROM to overclock but you will need to install a new Kernal that supports overclocking as mentioned above.

    ChevyNo1 has some good overclocking Kernals that work with the stock (but rooted) 2.1 ROM.

    There's a LOT of potential benefits to flashing a custom ROM, such as new features and easier themeing, but you don't have to. As stated above, flash an ESE81 compatible kernel, get SetCPU and rock and roll!

    I'll agree. If you're gonna go through the trouble of changing kernels, you should also give yourself the advantage of custom ROMs. There are a few out there that are still pretty much stock, but tweaked to be better (BB comes to mind.)

    Voodoo Lagfix with OC kernal.

    Seriously, read, read, and read, before you decide to flash this. Voodoo is excellent with increasing performance, and you will get a sweet quadrant score, but the OC kernals are not that stable and getting rid of Voodoo is a 3itch!

    You have been warned.
