Glad to hear the Tegra2 is hanging in there at some good speeds. :)

There's a dl link in the "officially overclocked" thread in the tbolt hacks section. It's also available in ROM manager if you prefer that.

^ too bad you're stuck with moto's kernel... 1.5 on the bolt is just the beginning ;-)

This is like supercharging a car that has 600 horsepower.

Heh. Yeah. Not sweating it though. It's plenty quick with killer battery life.

But the tb is going to be on beast mode here in a few weeks once everyone's had a chance to really dig in and optimize it. Should be sweet.

Where do I download the 1.8 kernel and how do I run a quadrant test?

I don't believe the 1.8ghz kernel that was referenced is actually available for download. There are 1.6 and 1.5 ghz kernels floating around on xda. The 1.5 was available on rom manager but got pulled for some reason yesterday (presumably because of heat/instability issues). There is a 1.2ghz kernel available in rom manager however. If you manage to find one of the higher frequency kernels keep in mind the tbolts chipset is rated by Qualcomm at 1.4ghz. I personally did not run into any issues running at 1.5ghz but folks were reporting reboots upon answering phone calls and such so I dropped it down to 1.4 just to be safe. Currently however, I'm running the das bamf rom (its bundled kernel is the same 1.2ghz kernel available in rom manager) and at 1.2ghz its plenty quick.

To run a quadrant benchmark you simply need to download quadrant standard from the market. It's self explanatory from there.
