    In any of the new 2.2 ROMs is there any way to get TempMonitor and/or SetCPU to read from the CPU temperature sensor yet?

    Flash tends to make the phone pretty warm and I'd really like to know how hot the CPU is getting. A failsafe profile in SetCPU is essentially useless if it can't read the CPU temp sensor.

    The TempMoniter CPU reading comes from the kernel... I know that P3Droid is aware of the issue with his kernels as is Jdlfg... I haven't heard that it is fixed yet though... There is a file they have to add and they are having problems with it...

    I'm pretty sure my SetCPU is reading my temperature correctly and displaying it in the widget... I've got the first version of 2.2 with the 800mhz overclock and Wifi kernel. It's usually around a steady 89 degrees and after watching an episode of The Office, it's now at a balmy 122 degrees. Speaking of which... (and not to hijack the thread) At what point is the phone in danger of getting fried? The back of my phone could fry an egg right now.

    that is the battery temp you are seeing. no one has been able to get a kernel to read the cpu temp as of yet. the only way i know to see the cpu temp in 2.2 is to use system panel from the market.

    System panel isn't reading the CPU sensor either. verified earlier this week. its dual reporting the battery temp.

    Have you tried the new ones yet? How well do they work compared to p3s? I like to stick with them but I really want the cpu temp readout.

    They run fine but didn't fix the reporting cpu temp issue for me.

    Scratch that. 1.25 doesn't work for me. Going lower.

    then why is it reporting a temperature that is 15 degrees different?

    I personal have found that they work better on my droid than p3s kernel, and I'm using system panel to read my cpu temp...didn't show in setcpu. I also was unstable at 1.25 but run just fine on the ulv 1.2

    System panel is reporting the same temp for CPU and battery on my Droid (P3Droid 1GHz LV kernel) - are we sure it reports CPU temp accurately on all Froyo kernels?

    I turns out that SystemPanel doesn't read CPU temp at all -- it reads logged battery temp and the AK8973 Temperature Sensor real-time battery temp.

    Bump. Was curious if there were any developments on this.
