I know I sound like a broken record, but what I see consistently from those of you with bootloops is that you're reflashing the kernel at the same time, it seems.

Try this; when your phone crashes and begins bootlooping, remove the battery.

After removing the battery for a few seconds, put it back on.

Use the hardware keys to enter recovery (Vol Down + Home + Power).

Once in recovery, only wipe Dalvik cache and reboot.

Unless my phone is different (which I guess it could be) this fixes the bootloop every time. No need to reflash anything.
Yes dave i dont think theyre rebooting after doing the first flash.

But after a bootloop, did you try exactly what I said? That is, pull battery, recovery, wipe only Dalvik, and try to boot again?

I experienced the constant bootloop you describe, and what I posted has been working for me each time the bootloop has come back.

And i wish i would have thought about removing the battery and going into recovery the first time it happened to me,, I havent had one boot loop or crash yet, but will remember this post lol.

I'm never getting one clean boot with the OC kernel.

I just did this:

recovery, wipe both cache, flash rom, reboot, recovery, wipe both cache, flash kernel, boot loop, remove battery, recovery, wipe only dalvik cache, boot loop, boot loop, boot loop, boot loop....

i spoke too soon i guess the screen started getting laggy so i bumped down to 787.2mhz then to 600 and it still had a laggy screen i uninstalled cpu master and cleared cache and its fine now but no way to manipulate freq. n/m that just rebooted might just run stock kernel till bugs r ironed out

Wipe everything but SD ext. Then flash rom. Then go into recovery and wipe dalvik cache and cache. Then flash kernel
It worked for me!

Even the first time it worked for me without flashing to updated cm7. I just wiped dalvik cache and cache. The only reason I flashed to rom was because of boot loop. Dave had the answer to that lol

Dave I noticed before when I cranked it up towards 900 I got the boot loop instantly. Do you think if I toy with it again and go higher into the 800's and it takes me back to the boot loop can I just do as you said take battery out wipe dalvik and I can get it back. Wondering does that lower the CPU or not.

It may also be worth trying to flash from a new SD card. They can/do wear over a certain number of read/write cycles. It's possible your SD card has bits that aren't operating correctly, which may normally go unnoticed, but could also cause failures in these mission-critical operations where data integrity is the highest priority.

Wondering does that lower the CPU or not.
Every time I crash my phone with too high of a clock, I get a bootloop. When I reset with the procedure I posted above, the phone boots normally.

I am very careful to leave the set on boot box unchecked so I do not know what is causing the bootloop after an overclock-related crash. Regardless, if you did not check the box and you are bootlooping after an OC-related crash, I believe the chances are good that clearing the Dalvik cache will clear up the trouble without any other action.

reppard's default max clock with no SetCPU (or similar program) intervention appears to be 800 MHz. This isn't a valid clockspeed for the CPU's stock multipliers, so it appears to be defaulting to a max of 787 MHz. The next valid clock is 806 MHz, and it (the phone) won't failsafe to a higher clock unless you set it yourself. I'm going to wager that most of our phones are stable enough at this speed (787 MHz) to boot, so I don't think it's overheating during boot and causing the loop.

lol been awhile since I seen LGNPST. Well good to hear you got it. I wouldn't go above that 806. I was noticing some heat. So I set it to ondemand. That fixed that and I still see the better performance.

Look guys Reppard is already suspecting what the problem is and why it wont work on certain phones. It is because he changed the stock max speed on this Kernel and right from boot its to high for certain phones. SO on certain phones NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO unless you change the kernel yourself you will not be able to boot in the kernels current state. Reppard is at the moment working on a new version of the Kernel that has a lower default max speed. This will hopefully solve the boot loading issue.

The new lower default max speed will not limit your overclocking capabilities as you can exeed it using Set CPU. The only limitation in this case would be your hardware, and you cant do anything about that, short of getting a new phone.

So just be patient guys and the problem should be fixed soon. Thanks guys.

I hope this has helped some of you with questions on what is going on at the moment.

Again TheAmazingDave's video will only work if your phone crashed due to you overclocking the kernel to much. Meaning it originally worked. But if you boot loop right after flashing the ROM without ever being able to even see the android its not going to work for ya. So now you know and don't have to post asking about it

Thanks Dave.

for everyone who is in here with a working OC kernel.

I want you to intentionally overcock your kernel and see if you can reboot into the OC kernel. without having to start over from LGNPST. ;1)


ooh also take note of what your default max CPU speed.

When I first tested the first overclockable kernel I compiled I gradually slid the frequency bar as far as it would go until it crashed. My phone restarted without incident. I have not experienced the first boot loop.

reppard, in effort to help assist you... and to see if I'm doing this wrong what base address are you using when you repack the boot.img? cuz I still can't seem to make any of mine work.

I overclocked, on the teamchickeneater rom, I have not tried on the cm7. I never had a boot loop problem.
I clocked it to 825 I think, I didnt take a good look at the indicator and I know it worked on 806 as that was the good spot for me.
At 825 my phone rebooted itself, and then it came back on and was just fine. I DID NOT HAVE THE SET ON BOOT CHECKED FOR THAT VERY REASON.

SO on certain phones NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO unless you change the kernel yourself you will not be able to boot in the kernels current state. Reppart is at the moment working on a new version of the Kernel that has a lower default max speed. This will hopefully solve the boot loading issue.

The new lower default max speed will not limit your overclocking capabilities as you can exeed it using Set CPU. The only limitation in this case would be your hardware, and you cant do anything about that, short of getting a new phone.

So just be patient guys and the problem should be fixed soon. Thanks guys.

I hope this has helped some of you with questions on what is going on at the moment.
Thank you very much for this post. (my name has a d at the end not a t I just got home from work so I'll be working on another build with a lower max. will be up tonight or tomorrow morning.

Alrighty, I'm currently compiling a new kernel with 729600 KHz as the max clock speed and ondemand as the default profile so we shall see if this helps any of you who are having the boot loops. I also added ext4 support. I could have sworn the stock kernel had it but those flags were not present in the kernel's .config file. I removed a couple of useless modules as well so hopefully we save a few K here and there. I'll update the OP as soon as its done compiling....I'm wishing I would have made my 4-core multilib...this dual core takes forever to compile!!!@

I have been eyeing the intel i52500k As much as I would love the i7 its not in my price range, the i5 will stretch the budget but it might be doable. lol
