    I've tried searching and can't find anything on the subject. Can I use D2 kernels on my R2D2?

    Beats me. I just keep reading about custom kernels and overclocking your phone to speeds of over 1000 MHz when I need it and under 300 MHz when I don't need it. Is there any other way of doing this?

    Yeah I think you can do it with an overclock app. Which is to say for d2/x users that's how we do it and I would assume it would be the same for the r2d2. We actually don't havee custom kernals.

    The only Motorola Droid phone you can use custom kernels on is the Droid 1. The other phones have an encrypted bootloader that will force a system reset if you install a non-stock kernel. There is no need for a custom kernel on the D2/DX/variants because all the features of a custom kernel is mimicked by other methods.
