    I'm running 1.1 GHz as well, but I don't agree ... and I'll tell ya why. I have to believe that the official 2.1 is going to be just that much faster and smoother. And once we get that version running at 1.1 GHz, we're going to wonder what we thought was so great about where we are today.

    That's my hope anyway. ;)

    I just replaced the Cortex-A8 in my phone with a 1GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 MPCore. It took a little tweaking the ROM, I won't bore you with the details, but it works very smoothly. I too think the official 2.1 is going to be great and can't wait. I'll probably overclock it to 1.5GHz once 2.1 is released, but I don't need to right now.

    of course there is. Otherwise everyone would be running their phones at 10000000000ghz.

    (except for the iPhone people, because Apple has told them that despite any gains, they still want to run it at a very slow speed. They always want what they are told they do. )

    He stated that he has physically changed the CPU in his phone. We are all waiting on more information. If he isn't full of crap, then I am VERY intrigued as to what he has to say.

    I would love to but it is extremely risky. If you don't already know what to do there's a 95% chance you would fry your phone. I know you guys are smart enought not to try it but know there are others that aren't. I don't want the guilt of knowing some poor ignorant person killed their phone just because they figured they could do it.

    Don't worry when Android 5.0 comes out you will be able to buy an upgrade kit off Newegg.com. I know this because I can travel to the future. I say in this time though. Trust me the future isn't pretty.

    i would imagine going higher has more risks.
    it all depends on how you feel about your phone.
    i guess if youre an adrenaline junkie, go with 1.1 lol
    but i've had no problems going 1.1, its up to you

    The newest 1.1GHz kernel allows you to throttle down to 800 at times too. But, so far, I don't see a reason to. I've been at 1.1 for days now. And she is running very nicely. :cool:


    You make "adrenaline junkie" sound like a bad thing. :thinking: :D

    Not sure if I'm interpreting this right but...you're going to tweak your wife's droid? Hopefully with her permission, no? :D

    I think my husband would have it coming if he tried to tweak my droid. Especially since he is still using a dumbphone :rolleyes:

    No-no, I think I know exactly what spartan meant! I'm going to wait a bit, as well, before trying this on my wife's Droid. Giving it adequate wait time is the only decent thing to do. ;)

    Overclocked 2.1 with Flash is now what I am truly waiting for. If we see desirable results with overclocking now...we are going to really need it when we have flash ads and banners, games, videos, etc. loading on web pages!
