Talking Droid X/2 Overclock App - Easy & Noob friendly ;)

Well, I got my Droid X 3 days ago and have worked non stop (besides normal work + school :-/ ), and I am happy to bring you Droid X/2 Overclock.


Droid-Life Article

Currently you can Choose to set your frequencies at boot and in real time. It's just as good as an instant kernel installer to get your custom frequency and voltage whenever you want, instantly.

Check it out on the market or GET IT HERE

This is just the beginning, more customization to come as an advanced option and more extras are in the works

Seems to work great. I have it set for the highest one on medium voltage. Can you tell me: is this a true reading? Am I actually overclocked at 1450 when it says I am (confirmed by SetCPU) or is that like a maximum-type number?

Also, what is the voltage number for "medium"?

Bought it and used it once. I really like the app.

One problem though, after that first use I made sure my phone was stable. I went to the app drawer and looked for it but I couldn't find it. So I went to the market to open it there and when I clicked it, a message popped up "the requested item could not be found." So is this happening with everyone or does my life just suck?

EDIT: Nevermind it seems to be working now. Thanks for your hard work!

You can view your current setscaling by typing the following in terminal emulator:

cat /proc/overclock/mpu_opps

Are you using gscript?

I'm running fab's ROM. I did the overclock -off script and this app runs fine. I was actually getting mass reboots with the rom settings, but with this app I can run much higher speeds with no problems.

Steven do you have any benchmarking programs/apps. Dont use quadrant as that will not scale accurately. But Linpack, SpeedPi, Benchmark Pi, CPUBenchmark or even the Benches within SetCPU's Info tab will give you a good sense if you in fact have gained 45% clockspeed

So I can't use this app because it gives me "cannot install overclock files" or whatever that error is? Anyone know why? Is it because I'm currently running overclocked at 1.35ghz? I renamed all the files to .bak and it still gives me the error.

I'm getting the same thing on mine and I'm not running a custom ROM, just a theme. I sent an email to the developer to see what he says.

Well you have to take preliminary numbers off the 1Ghz scores. So test it with 1Ghz and then re test with 1.45Ghz or whatever you end up at. There should be a relative proportional increase

The qr doesn't work for me. It says pname:com.jrummy.droidx.overclock not found. I also didn't see it when searching for "overclock" in the store. Has it been removed?

Thanks for the qr, but it doesn't work either. "There are no matches in the Android Market for the search: pname:com.jrummy.droidx.oveclock."

Running the original leaked 2.2 on my DroidX (with market fix). Not sure if that makes a difference.

Whats this overclock going to do to the battery? I worry about prolonged damage too, but I could be worrying a little too much.

Probably really should have some presets as well.

Now that overclocking is going mainstream here with this plug-n-play method, would someone explain the advantages/disadvantages to using lower vs higher voltages (other than battery life)? Is it just a matter of finding a stable setting?

Also -- I'm just wondering how this app can produce stable presets after all of the tweaking and failures of the manual method. Or will the presets need to be tested on an individual basis as well? At least this makes it a snap to test.

Version 1.0.3 was just released, and it fixed the "failed to install overclocking componets" bug.

I set it to 1.45 GHz and got a 1655 quadrant score (previous high was in the low 1400s). Not sure if I want to run it this fast for too long, but nice to know that the processor is capable of such things.

My phone seems to get hung up when I choose 1.45. Not sure sure the issue there. I tried 1.35 and it worked fine.

How do you know what voltage settings to select? What are the advantages/disadvantages of each?

I assume you use "Set Scaling Frequencies" for real time testing, then "Set Frequencies at Boot" once you have a stable setup?

for this application, start with the lowest setting on any given frequency, and if it isnt stable, bump it up. if it isnt stable on the highest, bump the frequency down, and start back at the lowest voltage and repeat.

yeah, once you find something that works, and you want it to survive a reboot, then you can go ahead and set frequencies at boot. until then, you just have to re-overclock every time you reboot.

yeah, once you find something that works, and you want it to survive a reboot, then you can go ahead and set frequencies at boot. until then, you just have to re-overclock every time you reboot.

What I meant on the voltages, is how do I select between Ultra Low, Low, Medium and High? I don't understand the pros/cons of each setting. Will definitely start slow and work my way up on the freqs!

yeah, i meant voltages too. you want to start on the lowest setting. lower setting = better battery life. but, lower setting can also = unstable. you want to run the lowest setting you can without being unstable. i guess it also depends on what you want to accomplish. are you looking to save battery, or are you looking for better performance?

try 1.3 @ low. if it reboots, try 1.3 @ medium, and so on. if you arent stable, try moving down in frequency, then start again at low, and so on. if you are stable at 1.3, try moving to 1.35.

does that all make sense?

Thanks. Looking for better performance first, then will adjust based on battery consumption.

My X is running smooth as silk using 1.3 at the low voltage setting. This app makes overclocking the X so easy I feel like I am cheating

Best I could do is 1.2ghz at low voltage. I'm running that on 2.2 OTA. Runs very nicely.

Stock 2.2 OTA and the best I can do is 1.1ghz. Anything higher makes my phone lag badly. Is there anything I can do to make it better?

Why cant I find this on the marketplace? I just rooted my Droid X and no results show up using QR or searching.

*EDIT*

Just tried searching for this and using the QR on my g/fs Droid 1 and same result.
