    So that is good now type in
    cat /system/etc/install-recovery.sh

    I really got to go soon, I will be back at like 9 though but I am going to try to help you all the way through first
    If those two commands are at the bottom then it worked(insmod)

    insmod/system/lib
    setscaling.sh

    Rebooted and setcpu still has 1ghz as max. Thanks for helping though, I am about to throw my phone across the room.

    What could it be?

    In SetCpu try pressing menu, then press autodetect speeds and run up the top slider all the way right and see if it still 1ghz

    Well I am trying to OC from a adb prompt on my PC (win7)
    First I went to run and typed cmd
    I entered: "Adb shell"
    I get a: "$"
    Then I typed "SU" and the next line has nothing (blank no $).
    Then I copied and pasted: "mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system"
    Which then I see another line below saying:
    mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk1p21 /system permission denied.

    I didn't get to far :(

    Can anyone help me better understand this?

    Thanks

    When enter "su" a prompt will be on your phone and you have to click allow.
    So hit su then press allow on your phone

    OK so I reconnected my device to my USB cable.
    Connections is PC Mode
    entered: "adb shell"
    got a: "$" entered "SU"
    Looked at my device notifications and there was no request for permission.

    Do I start with adb shell?
    Is PC Mode correct?
    Where should I find the request?

    OK got that part so now I entered: cp /sdcard/overclock.ko /system/lib/modules/
    reply was: "cp /sdcard/overclock.ko /system/lib/modules/ no such file or directory"

    I did place that on the root of my SDCard.
    What is it asking me for?

    The only thing I could say is make sure it is there. Cause that what it is saying

    OK I got it.
    Thanks

    Last question if I want to un-root (via easy root) what do I need to do to get back to the default clock?
    I did enter the survival after a boot from this thread.

    And can I delete the 2 files I put in the SDCard root?

    THANK you for all your help..
    Im new at this stuff and old to boot

    Hey didn't realize it was you Droider13.

    Hows it all going?
    Thanks again for your helping hand

    OH I chose 1150000 34...
    I wanted to speed things up a bit but also try to gain battery life which is now 6 hours.

    Those good settings?
  14. D13

    D13 Well-Known Member

    No, I would keep them there. To get back to the default clock just delete the files and reboot. Are you going to continue and make the overclock survive a reboot
  15. D13

    D13 Well-Known Member

    Yeah that is what I am running now
  16. n0m0n

    n0m0n Well-Known Member

    When I want to go back to the default delete the 2 files on the SDCard right?


    Thinking of sticking with this for a bit unless my device becomes unstable.
    But when 2.2 is released I want to upgrade to that.

    Is there a option to update to 2.2 for a DX???

    I know you can on a Droid.

    Thanks

    OK great thanks again
    Now I want to learn how to use a app called Tasker.
    It looks like I can setup the GPS to turn on only when needed but I didn't figure out how yet

    Darn something is wrong...

    Did that and no change...still a max of 1ghz...says that under the info tab also. Are you at a loss like me? Haha...i really don't know where to go from here.
  21. D13

    D13 Well-Known Member

    Yeah really I have no idea, everything looks right. You have the overclock.ko and.sh files done/installed right
  22. D13

    D13 Well-Known Member

    Try editing the setscaling.sh file to a lower speed
  23. n0m0n

    n0m0n Well-Known Member

    were do I find it and to what?
  24. D13

    D13 Well-Known Member

    Its in /system/bin

    try doing
    adb pull /system/bin/setscaling.sh

    And then on your computer use notepad ++ and edit the max to a lower number or raise the voltage
  25. n0m0n

    n0m0n Well-Known Member

    Can you give me some examples?
    I wouldn't know what to change them to.
    Is there a standard?

    Also after I edit how do I put it back in?
