How high?

    Running LGBv1.3
    How high can I overclock, theres options from 700MHz kernel all the way up to 1200MHz kernel, all low freguency and included on the rom by raidzero I think?

    Whats the fastest I can go , but also be safe about it?

    oh yea this is for a moto droid.

    No suggestions?

    I guess i'll put it @ 800MHz, I don't think thats too high. not sure though.

    It kind of depends on how you use your phone and how you're managing your overclock.
    If you intend to let the OS (kernel) handle it automatically, but want to play it safe, then capping it at 800MHz is a fine idea.
    If you're using a utility like SetCPU where you can assign profiles to crank up the OC while you're using the phone, while forcing an underclock when you're not, then 1.25GHz is totally fine.
    Essentially, the high OC is relatively safe as long as you don't run it full-out at >1GHz for hours at a time. When it gets hot you have to give it a break.
    (example: I have a high-priority SetCPU profile that underclocks the phone automatically if my battery exceeds 55C)

    IT really depends on the individual phone. Like with my droid I can only OC to 1100. Where as others has gone up to 1250. So you can load a few Kernels and start with 1000 and see how your phone does. Then move up to a higher speed. Then if you run in to trouble you can flash a lower kernel.

    WOW! I was totally expecting a completely different conversation in this thread... LOL :D;) Something more along the lines of "How high can I get and still safely flash a ROM"... LOL ;):p:D

    Well, anyways, here is my two cents on this subject. Take it for what it's worth...

    As everyone has stated here, it is completely dependent on your phone and how it reacts. There are many different kernels that have ranges anywhere from low end 125MHz-250MHz and high end 800MHz-1.25GHz. Then, each of those ranges have ultra low volt, low volt, and medium volt. There is not way to know which one kernel is going to work without just flashing different kernels until you get one that works wonders.

    For me, I stick with the second "gen" Chevy 1.1 LV kernel. His new GB kernels will run on Froyo and I flashed the 1.1 LV, 1.2 LV and 1.25 LV and each booted fine. However, after anywhere from 1 hour to 3 days after using them, my phone would start to act really funky and would slow to a crawl, auto close apps (not FC), and random reboot. I switched back to the "older" kernel and haven't had a problem since.

    So, again, it all depends on your phone. If the kernel absolutely won't work, your phone will bootloop. But, that is not the only indicator that your phone doesn't like a kernel. Like I said above, sometimes it takes an hour or a few days for your phone to let you know that it doesn't like the kernel you are using.

    Just find your one trusty kernel and always keep it on your SD card. That way when you want to try a new kernel, you always are guaranteed to have your proven one available, if needed.

    Also i noticed that my LED light is no longer working at all since i installed LGBV1.3, I am guess that has something to do with the ROM, or can I make it work?

    This is probably due to your ROM. I know that there are some ROM versions that have broken functionality like this. Also, GB is not quite ready for prime time on the original Droid. There are still a lot of tweaks that need to be made (mostly to the native task manager) to make it as reliable as Froyo (for most users, though there are a handful that have no problems at all).

    I know PE 5 GB rom the led light works on it. Most other GB rom seems to not have fixed it yet.
