Default Milestone Overclock 1.4.3: *Official* Support for Droid X/2 Froyo

Milestone Overclock as of version 1.4.3 now officially supports Droid X/2 running 2.2/Froyo. Go download it for FREE from the Market. Here is a a post from Tiago from the DroidXForums thread.
Quote:
Hi all, I'm the Milestone Overclock guy. I'd like to let you know that the latest version of Milestone Overclock supports Droid X 2.2 and is now in the Market. It is based on the fix by nadlabak/kabaldan but done "correctly" now that we have the kernel source.

Note also that this fix should correct the vsel problem that many had in android 2.1. The previous module/app simply wasn't setting vsel at all, as many of you suspected. Let's hope this version takes care of it, for anyone that didn't upgrade to 2.2.

For those of you not familiar with Milestone Overclock, it's the original overclock app for the Motorola Milestone (which has a locked firmware just like the Droid X) but nowadays strives to support all OMAP3 phones, and that includes Droid, Droid X, Droid 2 (working on it), many XT7xx/XT8xx and even a Samsung (Galaxy Beam; others are Hummingbird, not OMAP). And yes, it's free!

If you're interested, you can check out the issue which led to this release in the project site:
Issue 36 - milestone-overclock - Modify Source to Support Droid X. - Project Hosting on Google Code
(many thanks to tekahuna)

Thanks
Tiago Sousa aka mirage
Side Note:
The Milestone Overclock kernel module is at the core of all other Droid X/2 overclocking "apps". I'd prefer to call them "Alternate User Interfaces" or "Skins" to the Milestone Overclock kernel module. If you appreciate the ability to overclock your Droid X/2, please Donate to Tiago!

Instructions:
Download Milestone Overclock from the Market, and give it a whirl.

The app is geared towards providing the basics, in a safe manner. It has brick protection, where if you happen to input a custom setting that is out of spec, and causes you to bootloop, you can pull your sdcard and get into your phone to clear the settings...

Full control of freq/vsel still requires a setscaling.sh script(that's how the cool folks like to do it anyways). Pull that from the original zip file. I'll update that when I get a chance.

Milestone Overclock Module 1.2t (nadlabak's patch) w/ Memory Locations for DroidX 2.2 Added by FreeWELL

nadlabak: for patching in Froyo/2.2 Support
FreeWELL: for finding DroidX 2.2 memory locations/module compilation

Notes:

I'm trying to keep this as close as possible to the way it was done on 2.1. For me, 2.2 seems to need a little more voltage to be stable than it was under 2.1. I've included two versions of setscaling.sh to start from.

setscaling.sh is set to stock voltages/clock speed

setscaling100.sh is set to stock voltages w/100mhz bump accross the board to 400/700/900/1100 (This appears to be stable for me, and is the baseline for my testing/tuning)



Install Instructions

adb/terminal:
$ su
# cd /sdcard/extracted/droidx_22_oc (or wherever you extracted the files to)
# mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mcblk1p21 /system
# cp overclock.ko /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
# cp setscaling.sh /system/xbin/setscaling.sh
# chmod 644 /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
# chmod 755 /system/xbin/setscaling.sh

<optional(only do after thoroughly testing what works for your DroidX in setscaling.sh)>
# cp install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
# chmod 755 /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
</optional>

# mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mcblk1p21 /system


Run Instructions

adb/terminal:

$ su
# insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
# setscaling.sh

Very interesting.

Once this is changed it stays that way every boot up right? Do I have to make a backup of anything first? If I mess something up with SBF fix me up?

Thanks.

In setscaling.sh which numbers are the voltage values and are they the stock values?

I would like to stay at stock speeds but lower the voltage a bit. What all values would I have to change to make this work?


Have you tried this, and if so what have you found to be stable values?

It will not start up every time, unless you install the optional install-recovery.sh file. Do not do this until you have thoroughly tested out what setting will work for you in the setscaling.sh file.


If you never overclocked under 2.1, reading the following threads should help get you up to speed.

I'm stuck at 1.15GHz. If your phone gets all slow after you raise the speed, it goes into a "turtle mode", rather cooldown mode and becomes completely unresponsive.

A battery pull will fix this (as long as you did NOT do the install-recovery.sh script)

Beesley, you need to edit the setscaling.sh file to change the slots and voltages they will use. Then, insmod the overclock module and run the setscaling.sh script to change your slots. Then, use SetCPU to change the frequency.

Yes thank you very much.. Just realized I was using the wrong setscaling!

Using the 'Stress Test' feature of SetCPU is a good idea for your custom slots and voltages.

Currently doing 1.1GHz at 50 vsel and it's looking good

I have not really tried undervolting yet. But if that's what you want, you need to edit setscaling.sh to look something like this...


Code:
echo 51 > /proc/overclock/max_vsel
echo 1000000 > /proc/overclock/max_rate
echo 1 300000000 22 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 2 600000000 33 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 3 800000000 45 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 4 1000000000 51 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 0 1000000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 1 800000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 2 600000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 3 300000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table

This is -5 across to board from stock for the voltage. I have not tested this. It's just an example of how undervolting could be achieved. You'll need to test to find out what actually works for your particular Droid X.

Damn you all! my DX felt just fast enough. Never thought it really needed OC but now that it is this easy looks like i have some testing to do.

I am finding these settings to work very well for me, though not all Droid X's are created equal. I actually think mine is kind of a dud

Code:
echo 50 > /proc/overclock/max_vsel
echo 1100000 > /proc/overclock/max_rate
echo 1 400000000 28 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 2 600000000 32 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 3 900000000 44 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 4 1100000000 50 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 0 1100000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 1 900000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 2 600000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 3 400000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table

alright so after the install how do we set the overclock?
i never messed with the setscaling and just wanna try some different OC speeds
i remember the overclock.sh ####### ## thing but that didn't work

so how do i do it now?!

Here is my setscaling.sh contents. This is the same that I used in 2.1 OC and its been 10 minutes running setcpu stress test and all seems ok. In 2.1 I was actually able to drop the voltages to like 20,30, 35, and 42. However I am not sure this will work not however i will give it a shot.

Code:
echo 56 > /proc/overclock/max_vsel
echo 1000000 > /proc/overclock/max_rate
echo 1 400000000 25 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 2 700000000 35 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 3 900000000 45 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 4 1100000000 50 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 0 1100000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 1 900000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table

After the OC install just do this.

$ su
# insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
# setscaling.sh

If you are using the downloaded setscaling with no changes however it will just be stock. You will have to manually change the settings like in my previous post. I recommend using notepad++ in Windows to change params.

Awesome man. Thanks for including stock voltages so we can get some clue about how far we should vary.

Anyone looking to undervolt, doesnt look like you can get as low as 2.1 I have had automatic restarts on a couple tries right after running setscaling.sh.

EDIT: Dropped it down 5 for now to test. When I cat mpu_opps after running everything I get

vseld=62 vsel=51 for 10000000
vseld=58 vsel=45 for 8000000
vseld=48 vsel=33 for 6000000
vseld=33 vsel=22 for 3000000
I dont remember it appearing like that, should the vseld be the same or is that the original?

I am getting ready to install this.

I edited setscalling.sh to 1.1GHz and undervolt, do I need to edit anything else to do undervoltage?

I'm at 25,35,45,50 atm let me know if that works out for you. I am playing around to see if this is stable enough before I drop again.

Just tried the one above with -5

echo 51 > /proc/overclock/max_vsel
echo 1000000 > /proc/overclock/max_rate
echo 1 300000000 22 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 2 600000000 33 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 3 800000000 45 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 4 1000000000 51 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 0 1000000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 1 800000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 2 600000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 3 300000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table

I initially for my 2.1 had


echo 34 > /proc/overclock/max_vsel
echo 1000000 > /proc/overclock/max_rate
echo 1 300000000 22 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 2 500000000 26 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 3 800000000 30 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 4 1000000000 34 > /proc/overclock/mpu_opps
echo 0 1000000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 1 800000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 2 500000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table
echo 3 300000 > /proc/overclock/freq_table

Which ran fine

I'm running 28, 32, 44, 50 at 1.1 right meow and it all seems OK so far.

First one didn't work = instant reboot

Tried 25, 32, 43, 48 = instant reboot

I'm going to play around with it a little more tomorrow, I'm done for tonight.

Maybe I am doing something wrong, I am trying to go to 1.1GHz with the lower voltages. Someone mind posting what my setscaling.sh should look like

I'm looking forward to hearing how effective undervolting will effect battery life. I just hope people don't undervolt, then lay their X on their night stand asleep for a week and then report back that they're getting CrAzY battery life!?!?!

Don't worry once I get mine stable I will give real world results, I can't leave my phone alone for a day even if I tried, LOL

You have to play around with things a bit. Settings are not always going to transfer from one DX to the next. It was discussed extensively under 2.1, that there is a good degree of variation from chip2chip/phone2phone as to what these things can handle. You must become one with your X! LOL

Seriously, though... Your freeze/crash/reboots could be from any of the 4 frequency slots having too low a voltage for the frequency it is set to. It is good to use the first page in SetCPU to lock your processor at a certain speed by setting both sliders to the same frequency or by using the performance governor, and test out each of your frequencies with stress test.

I'd also suggest starting from setscaling100.sh and working your way down in voltage, in increments of 2... get a crash... do the previous stress test tip, and find out which slot crashed you.. just keep honing in on what works.. might take some time getting it all the way there...

Means it is already loaded... Did you have a crash/short reboot?

in adb or terminal:
# rmmod overclock.ko

I didnt have a crash or reboot since applying the patch. I went ahead and removed the mod overclock.ko and re-ran through everything though... seems to be working now. Thank you!

so if I run the stock voltages with higher frequencies I should expect better performance with about the same battery life right?

Should be about the same. You just might save battery because you spend less time running your highest voltage... Who knows...

Yes, its surprising what a few hundred Mhz will do. CPU intensive apps are running much faster. Like Titanium Backup for example, it flies through backing up/restoring batch apps.

I <3 OC and the people who say its not needed must not know how to do it

I'm kidding of course, but I just dont understand why some ppl are so against overclocking. Its always made my phones faster and perform better.

Thats a pretty big jump on the vsel, sounds like it will drain your battery pretty quick if you use your phone a lot.

Edit: Gonna giver her a whirl, I have the extendo so I'm not too worried. Just be nice if we could find something super stable, so far I haven't even came close.

Edit: -- Nevermind no dice going to try more at 1.1 @62 everything else the same seems good for tonight. (boo)
