    I cant find anything about the question im asking.

    I am running SR 2.5.2 with OC hydrakernel #2. Im still new to rooting and kernels.

    So my question is if i flash kingxkernel do i need to use SetCPU in order to overclock? I know hydrakernel you dont and from what i see on just monitoring my cpu that it does in fact go up to 1.15 on its own. I want to flash kingxkernel and try it but dont know if it will just do its job or if i need increase the cpu once its on my phone.

    I like the way i dont have to mess with hydrakernel since i dont know much about the settings on setcpu.

    Hope im not being too confusing. Thanks for the help.

    Someone else may be able to tell you more than I, but I've only used SetCPU with KingXKling kernels because I don't know another way to adjust the CPU speeds. It works well and is easy. Only problem I've ever had is when I OC'd one too much once with the set on boot option enabled and the phone was freezing up on me. I had trouble getting the phone to stay up long enough to get to SetCPU and uncheck the option. hehe. So I'd recommend not setting that option till you know you are really stable.
