    I'm currently running BB 1.0 and I did the Live Wallpaper hack. But I noticed that it seems to be a little sluggish while flipping through the desktop. I'm only clocked at 800-250. Do you think if I put it up, I'll be able to handle LP with no lag? I'm skeptical about it.

    I was just reading about DroidMod, but I'm really hooked on BB. So I'm torn, yet again.

    If you like BB (DM is a great ROM, though i prefer Sholes 2.0.5 myself) then try over clocking to 1G and see how that works... if you read around and do your homework im sure you will find very few issues about oc to 1000Mhz...

    This is true, and I have read this. But from a personal standpoint, it just makes me nervous.

    I am the same way - using 800 mhz OC myself. I just rooted using DM 1.0 last night and live wallpapers are not sluggish for me whatsoever.

    To be honest wallpapers o/c to 800/ actually 600 works smooth with droid mod. I actually took the live wallpaper down because i did not like the battery drain. I will install it to show it off but for every day use it is off. I do the same with o/c. I o/c to 800-1000 for internet, installing apps, or anything where I would like it to do faster. If I am streaming music, charging the phone, navigating through the phone, or texting/calls....I will scale it down to 600 (even with my profiles on). IMO the phone handles basic tasks with out the need to o/c.
