    I decided to test overclocking with a new HAVS kernel. Put the slider to 1.26mhz and my phone froze up. Had to pull the battery to get it to reboot. But once it booted up, it'd freeze again. There may be a better way to recover from this, but here's how I solved it.

    1) boot into recovery

    2) adb shell
    mount /data
    cd /data/data
    rm -r com.mhuang.overclock
    exit

    3) reboot phone

    Basically what this does is removes the setCPU settings, so the phone isn't trying to overclock every time it finishes booting.

    you can prevent this by not selecting 'set on start'

    1.26 rebooted my phone nearly instantly
    1.22 made usage of the phone suck with random reboots
    1.19 seemed to be the sweet spot

    of course, that checkbox "set on boot" or whatever. well, since you did the homework, I'll just set mine at 1.1 and be done with it :)

    I had a similar thing happen to me with kingxkernel #7 and BFS #1 at 1.19 Ghz. Did a nand restore and 1.11 seems to be working well.

    I've noticed another glitch introduced when I flashed 4.1.x netarchy kernel. If I try to switch input methods (keyboards), my touchscreen locks up. I have to standby the screen and turn it back on to recover.

    Is there much noticeable speed increase at 1.19? Worth effort?
