    Is there an app or any way to change the voltage to the cpu? It would help those people who cant use custom kernels and i want to be able to oc to 806mhz! That would be sweet.

    The only way to OC the Ally is to use a custom ROM such as Velocity 1.0 that supports it. Even then chances are your not going to be able to get 806Mhz stable out of it, but some will so good luck.
    Why can't you use a custom kernel? just follow http://androidforums.com/ally-all-t...-3-2011-3-40-pm-est-now-easier-than-ever.html

    No i AM running velocity with the custom kernel i just wanted to know if i could manually change the voltage, so that i could get a "custom fit" for our phones and not just a one size fits all setting.

    Editing the voltage would require you to compile your own kernel. Good luck.

    If only you could adjust it in a recovery, like you can on a pc's bios

    Why can't choose your clock speed in velocity scripts, choose to set this frequency at boot, then make a Nand in recovery?

    What's wrong with setting the clock speed on boot via the velocity scripts? Just wondering

    Im talking about adjusting voltage not clock speed.

    He wants to increase the voltage to the CPU, to obtain higher clocks, if you increase the voltage the Ally could possibly OC to as much at 900+ stable, but the cpu and battery would drastically be damaged, the cpu heatsink is tiny, and is barely efficient enough to handle what its at now, to do so would render the phone useless in just a month or two.

    Dont do it, even if you find a way!

    Hmmm. Your right it prolly would burn out in a few months. Anybody know how big the heatsink is / what it looks like? Lol if ours is small think about how small the itouches would be! 0_o

    Lmao how pathetic. You know that dyson fan that doesnt use any blades? I think in the future they will use those as mobile hs fans maybe then we can get hex core phones running at 5ghz :)

    Those fans dont put off alot of air,and in the future we will use a copper/trilithium composite to disipate heat along a heatpipe with fins on it

    Yea but we already have copper and heatpipes or are you talking mobile devices. Those fans will get stronger over time, they dont make noise and i could see them being very efficient so maybe well see them maybe we wont it just depends on how they can pack it into a mobile phone and if theyre reasonable or not.

    It still has moving parts, and moving parts + mobile phones = bad

    Dropping, and wear and tear, and battery life would be killed, and batteries are far behind in technology

    somebody OCd the ally to 960. its capable. but the hacked his way through with his own kernel and such.

    I'm getting 806MHz and it's very stable. In fact, I've only had my phone restart one time since I rooted it. This is a newer Ally though, so it could have a better built cpu. My previous ally would barely overclock at all and stay stable.

    Both of these OC's were through Velocity.

    would it be a simple task to just edit a kernel and up the voltage just a bit? Or can that not be done, sorry no expirience in building kernels.

    Cant just change the voltage, would have to write alot of code, and change alot of other code, its not simple, and takes alot of experience, and we wont release something that we KNOW will kill a phone in a few months

    Droid Incredible 2 should be dual core, aswell as The Verison Shift (cant think of the real name, but its a slider phone just lilke the ally, but will be same specs as dinc 2 bassically
