    ...hey all. As always, apologies if this is a repeated question.

    I just wanted some clarification on the Milestone Overclock app, which I have set at 800 MHz...does this mean that the phone ALWAYS runs at this speed, even when in a low activity state with screen off or charging? Or does the phone power down at the proper times?

    I know about the profiles on SetCPU, but didn't want to get that running as well. Sorry, I'm anal like that.:eek:

    The same as most mobile OSes, Android is able to down-clock the CPU as needed, so overclocked or not, there is nothing to worry about.

    Some people say SetCPU profiles add a bit of battery life, but since it still will not hold charge for two full days I would not bother, since I have to charge it every night.
    TelusMilestone and LifeInAnalog like this.
