    Hello all! Has anyone had problems with other kernels besides the stock cm 7 kernel? Stock runs great but when I try a different kernel I always run into wifi problems and random lockups and reboots. This has happened with 4 different kernels. From searching the net, I noticed this seems to be a common problem.
    Does anyone know of any that work or any reasons this may happen? I would like to OC to 1ghz. Thanks

    This probably belongs in the Cyanogen forum, where it's likely to get more attention.

    I've been using CM7 with the deprimed kernel on my original Droid for a few weeks now, and it's very fast and stable. I've played around quite a bit with the vsel settings, and the only time I get reboots is when I've set them too low.

    Here's the best how-to I've seen on getting it up and running properly:

    With overclocking in general, processors don't all respond the same way to overclocking even with the same make and model of processor. Don't assume you can overclock to 1GHz. You need to determine through testing which kernels/voltages/clock speeds work with your processor.
