    I've searched around for Eris specific answers to this question and haven't been able to find any answers. I know the Eris just recently achieved root, but I'm new to all of this, and if the Eris could be overclocked a bit, that would be amazing. Great phone, just too slow.....

    Not yet, I think you can't do it yet because Its our roms can't handle those operations yet. Don't quote me on this its just things I've heard in the IRC and read on other phones sections, Looks Like you need something in the rom in order to over clock the eris.
    Can anyone confirm or refute this?

    It will require someone to modify the kernel a bit, which hasn't been done yet. It's on the list, though.

    It has been done. Most custom ROMS include over clocking.

    Wow! The rare "zombie" thread...rising from the dead! :D

    Yep, you gotta be rooted though to do this. You can root and install a custom ROM or you might be able to root and flash Zanfur's overclocking patch directly (I'd go the full custom ROM though--there should be some newly-cooked ones that have the latest OTA updates in them (I think I saw there were a few already--devs are awesome)).

    It actually varies by device and probably the ROM you are running. There are slight differences in each that account for how high you can push it.

    The best thing to do is bump it up very carefully, making sure to not enable "set-on-boot" in setCPU until you are pretty sure you've got a stable overclocking speed.

    710MHz is widely considered very safe. Many use higher settings. Read through this thread for a sample of peoples experiences: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/98457-overclocking-hmm.html

    I had no problem at 787 but dialed it back to 768 just to be safe.
