    What do you mean by "run the droid overclock on"?
    Clock speed? VSELs?

    honestly i haven't given it much thought. Aside from daily cache drops, I have cron backing up my custom init scripts and SMS db to the sdcard. I also have a cron job that kills some memory resident apps that shouldn't be memory resident. The potential is pretty huge - I can practically replace all my Tasker jobs with some work, and it will probably consume a lot less battery than Tasker. Well I guess i've given it some thought. ;)

    What is the number that returns when you run pgrep -f crond? Is higher or lower better? I flashed the zip, and then ran quickclock. I am using the balanced setting and now the number returns at 4056.

    Thanks for input.

    Well there aren't enough of them (at least for me) to make a difference. I like being able to make sure that they're not running of course. :)

    The number is the process id of crond. Doesn't matter how high or low as long as you get a number.
