    did a nandroid backup first then installed. never had a problem with heat or battery life, but if it helps i'll take it anyway.

    the phone seems to run just as good and fast as before.

    Running this kernal with jagerrom 1.1. Very stable. Too soon to tell on how much battery life improvement there will be. Marginally less heat when using processor intensive apps for long periods. I believe most of the power saving will come when it is at the lower speed steps, so heat probably isn't a good indicator. I will give it a few days, and give my impression of battery improvement.

    Can I run this without installing a custom rom? If so, do I still need to wipe the data on my phone first?

    I wanted to test this for you guys, so i charged phone fully before i went to bed last nite and put this undervolt kernal on.. seems like its making battery last!
    I also haven't noticed any deference on performance so thats good!

    I will update this throughout the day! :)

    Are people having trouble tethering with n-draft enabled?

    Some people (like me) are having issues with the N driver. Range and dropped connections seems to be issues. I haven't confirmed any tethering options. Use the Non-N undervolted kernel if you have issues with the N driver. Also, there is no overclocked kernel with non-N drivers.

    Waiting for patkicks10 to update... I'm very interested in seeing how battery life is affected by undervolting. I'm pretty happy with my battery life, but for those who have issues with it and are willing to take a slight performance hit, this sounds like the answer.

    Well, I'm gonna find out about any battery savings because I'm running the undervolt now. Strictly undervolt, no wireless N.

    BTW, are there any quality free options out there that compare to SetCPU?

    Very cool... as a fair comparison, how would your battery status have been after 19 hours on the stock kernel?

    I'm not seeing a difference compared to my phone. What were you doing? If that's gameboid at 2xfastforward for two hours it would be great.

    Edit: Someone needs a before and after with a system panel monitor active to record the cpu usage.
    Here's me it's actually 49% on the HTC battery widget so...

    What are the downsides to a low voltage kernel? Why don't all phones run on "low voltage"?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but this obviously requires root, right?

    What's the easiest root method? I see a few methods but not sure which one is "non-dev" friendly.

    I'd love to undervolt my CPU and return the extended battery so I can have the phone last greater than a day with moderate use.

    Thanks.
