    One thing some of you over-clockers may not be aware of is, the over-clocked kernel that you flashed to your DROID is based off of the 2.0 kernel. Some folks are reporting issues again that were present before the 2.0.1 update ... i.e. crackling audio, LED and keybd back-lighting dysfunction, etc... Actually, I have yet to experience any of these issues.

    This isn't bad news, mind you. Just a little something that we can look forward to as the new & improved kernels become available. I still have high hopes that the official 2.1 release is going to be a very optimized ROM/kernel for our beloved DROID. And when that kernel gets over-clocked . . . LOOK OUT!!! :eek: :cool: :)

    ----------------------

    UPDATE: I have since removed the CompCache from my DROID. I would get reboots when I tried calling anyone. Umm ... that's bad, right? LOL

    Yeah, that was already pointed out somewhere else... I think in the thread about overclocking. I think it was right before I started taking crap over my choice of ROMs. lol.

    There are so many things I am looking forward to, and it sucks that there is nothing I can do to pitch in and help any of the devs out so we can get stuff faster.

    It allows for expansion of ram space. But the verdict is still out from me. I'm seeing a little bit of wackiness that wasn't there before I enabled it. I might revert back and see what's up.

    I actually noticed at 1G I have lost LED notifications, earlier when I had it 800 or maybe it was the 950 I think I had them.. going to flash to the other one to test

    I'm at 950 and LED notifications work perfectly... Considering 1G.

    I just switched back to 950 and I do get LED again!

    Is there a nice write up on what exactly JIT is and how to implement it?

    CompCache was messing with my phone. When I tried calling someone, the phone would reboot. :( It was also acting just kinda glitchy in general. So I reverted back to "just" 1.1 GHz with JIT enabled. Runnin sweet again.

    I've had it running at 800, 900, 1G, and now 1.1G. No issues what-so-ever at any speed. Just lucky I guess.

    My LEDs are also working at 900/1000/1100. However, no matter what frequency, if I have JIT enabled, my browser does not like to ever finish "loading", even though the entire page is rendered, the bar at the top does not complete.

    I don't like that, not at all. So I'll just wait for 2.1 and JIT. I think it's better for 2.1 anyways, because 1GHz N1's can get 17 MFlops using cyanogen's JIT, while at stock they barely get 8. Even at 1GHz w/o JIT, the Droid gets like 8.5, so running the exact same software, we should be able to beat the N1...

    But idk. Besides benchmark numbers, I don't feel JIT made a difference in the UI or any other actions.

    We'll see as it matures.

    No problem here with either the stock or Dolphin browser.

    So, overclockers, how much faster does your phone actually run - real world? Does it feel like it's blazing compared to the stock speed? I finally rooted since 2.1 didn't come on the 22nd. Probably going the OC route next.

    I am at 800 with the adamZ's smoked glass ROM. home screen transitions are noticably faster, along with app tray and notification animations. ap's opening and loading are also alot quicker and booting up is super fast

    I noticed a 5 second boot time improvement from 800 to 1000 and the same from 600 to 800.

    One thing you won't see me do is get into peeing contests just for the sake of having something newer or better than the next guy. When I speak highly of an app, or a ROM, or a mod, it is because I really think it is something that someone else should do or have.

    Having said that ... this over-clocked kernel is ROCKIN'!!! This thing is FLYING! My Sweeter Home theme is a pure joy to navigate. Apps open FAST! Scrolling is smoother everywhere. And pinch and zoom in either of my browsers finally feels PERFECT for the first time. Keep in mind I'm running at 1.1GHz. 800 good. 900, better. But the real show starts at 1GHz. :p

    How's that for a ringing endorsement? ;)

    I have to agree that apps really SNAP at 1Ghz or higher. They open so fast its like it pops lol.

    For about the first time in weeks I'm stuck...I was going to flash the Tas 1.1mhz boot image, but the instructions don't work...

    I'm connected to my PC via USB, SD card not mounted, usb debugging enabled, etc.

    I boot into sprecovery (hold x and power button), that's fine.

    After I do that I run adb shell, that works fine.

    Next command is su - that doesn't work - su command results in not found error. Tried mounting system, data, and sdcard from sprecovery mount menu, but su still won't work.

    What's the trick?

    Thanks!

    anyway (sorry for the offtopic post) does any of you have a more comprehensive guide to overclock my droid? ...you know one that involves a heavy use of N00b style techniques... :D:cool:

    You don't need to type su, it is automatic in recovery. I had the same problem myself but I just said f it and went ahead with the flash_image and it worked fine.

    well we all have nandroid backups, i have 1 of 2.0.1 and i could pass it your way if ya get probs... so no worries really. i know many more have dif backups as well :) i can't say i am worried to ruin it cause someone can help me bring it back, i've been lucky lately but overclocking on 2.1 is making me nervous, i mean i am, but i have been getting nervous lately haha. checking my benchmark a lot!
