    I installed the new fresh kernel and it can run the processor as low as 128 or as high as 1152 but is that safe? I don't want my phone to melt or not get enough power. Pda what's a good app to test fps?

    what applications and services are you running? if you overclock your cpu ..people normally do that to achieve better performance while running cpu bound applications..what are you trying to achieve or use the overclocking for? once that is determined you can use the overclocking to decide whether or not its worth the risk of overheating..most cpus will shutdown before they overheat..just sayin..

    I just want a little less system lag mainly. And to save battery with my processor going slower but is 128 fast enough?

    wow. thats a severe trade off for performance. i would offer..find a happy median between performance and batt life..lets see if someone else responds with better intel.

    create profiles with setcpu. if you are using fresh, flipz says that it doesn't seem to work above 1.15 ghz

    i have two profiles:

    screen off, throttle down to 250
    charging, throttle up to 1.15

    otherwise, i have it set to 'ondemand' between 250 and 1.15

    I have found the same thing, anything over 1.15 causes problems, but 1.15 works perfectly. (Also using Fresh, v1.0.1, can't speak for other ROMs)

    Also, for more details on using SetCPU with profiles, check out this thread:

    [ROOT] Using SetCPU + Perflock Disabler to Save Battery, Underclock - xda-developers

    Since setting up SetCPU and overclocking, I have seen a definite increase in both performance and battery life by tweaking the profiles to work best with my usage and charging patterns.

    Edit: Also, I have the minimum clock speeds for the different profiles all set to 245. when I started with a 128 minimum I had some random problems crop up, and it seems other people have had issues at 128 as well.

    As of right now 1.0.1 is only available to donors or testers. Flipz mentioned in his email that it will either be released tonight or tomorrow. So look for it in the updater later tonight or tomorrow.

    Might be a little late since it looks like it is on the updater now, but I didn't use the updater. I just copied it over to the sd card, then booted into recovery (power + volume down) and applied update from the .zip.

    its public now. Im upgrading, hopefully it can fix some lag, can you still use the same kernels from the fresh updater?

    i ran a full day with 652mhz as the ondemand speed with screen on and 245mhz for when the screen was off, Phone still ran really smooth with no hiccups and the battery live was amazing, even with heavy use
