    Hi,

    I'm fairly new to rooting and I just installed Pete's Bugless Beast RC 0.1 aka Froyo on my Droid.

    So far, so good. I want to overclock my Droid to 1 ghz, so what would the best Kernal be?

    Also, I hear different Kernals have different battery life... is that true?

    If so, I want the best one. Link would be nice as well.

    Thank You :)

    Even Chevy's LV 1GHz has terrific battery life... and it wouldn't take that slight performance hit that you might encounter with an ULV kernel...

    It also isn't something that can be charted or ranked. What works best on my droid doesn't necessarily mean it will work best on yours--even if we had the same ROM and same apps/widgets loaded and running, and used them in exactly the same way.

    Some users get great satisfaction with chevy's ULV, while for others it is giving them reboots (enough that he his going to release 4.1 of Simply Stunning with his LV, not the ULV which 4.0 currently has).

    The best thing you can do is try different developers, as well as different kernels by the same developer, until you find one that works best on your device.

    Can somebody link me to Chevy's Kernals?

    & Would it work on Bugless Beast Froyo 0.1?

    same performance, lower voltages. lower voltage = less battery usage

    problenm is, not all droids can handle the low voltage. I'm lucky that my can

    Lower voltages will net you lower temps, but if too low for your particular CPU might net you poorer performance especially when the load gets higher with several apps running...

    I'm just happy to have a 1GHz kernel working at all. For some reason, Pete's kernels over 800MHz don't work on my phone, no matter what. I tried out Chevy's 1GHz ULV to get a boot loop, but the 1GHz LV works just fine. BB 0.1, Chevy's kernel at 1GHz, animations turned off...This thing freakin FLIES.

    Thanks to everyone involved.

    I am very happy with mine. Lower temps and better batt life.

    Have a question when I go to check about phone information it simply says chevy no 1kernal 32lv. That's it pretty much and it doesn't say ulv or ultra low voltage is that right. I flashed the ultra low voltage 1.2 ghz. If it helps I'm running bugless froyo.

    I hope BeKit has a kernal for Froyo soon

    I've yet to find a single Kernal besides the stock one in petes rom to run stable. I"ve tried turning down speeds lower than im use to running and still getting random reboots form time to time, its not constantly or anthing so I cant narrow down whats causng it.
    I had none on the stock rom but it was slower than what im use to from my BBv1.1 with Bekit 1.2LV kernal I had the same kernal on BBv1.0 and BBv1.1.

    Anyway I can get the stock 800 kernal back

    I really dont want to start over again. I have most things setup to my like and all then I changed the kernal from stock. :(.

    Is there a way to get the stock kernal to flash back without starting over 100%. ?
    My wifi is still too flaky to use these faster but not as stable kernals I've tried. I've tried evern one I could find so far too. All the p3's are about the same for wifi issue. I have to save the ChevyNo1's do run cooler and I thought had wifi fixed but once I started watching youtube HiDef, I see its still unstable.

    I have had some issues with several Froyo roms except Bugless Beast v0.1 FRF57 by Pete. (It may be due to trying faster kernels than the std. 800mhz built for Froyo.) BBv0.1 works flawless for me on my Moto Droid with the included kernel & Spare Parts "window animations" & "transition animations" both set to Fast. It is the fastest most stable rom I have tried, Froyo or ESE81.

    I was using P3Droid's 1.0GHz kernel for the last week or so, and the battery life and heat were no problem. A little warm, but really good all around. I saw Chevy's froyo kernels yesterday and decided to try them out. The ULV is a no-go sadly. It just yields a bootloop. So I tired the 1 GHz LV, and it's been great. I have to wait until the work week to really get a feel for the battery life, because I'm home sick this weekend, so I'm on the phone all day lol. But I bet it'll be good as well. So yeah, P3Droid and Chevy both have 1 GHz kernels that work really well.
