    Am I that predictable? :D

    I always stuck my phone at min: 710, max:710. Why? Because a 250-710 set up like yours, even on the 'Performance' mode, felt sluggish by comparison. The processor just can't quite jump back up to 710 quite quick enough and it makes it seem laggy.

    Doesn't Ninpo's recent kernel use the interactive governor with a very restricted frequency set to avoid this very problem? Erasmux got round it in FlyKernel with the "minmax" governor - there are NO intermediate frequency jumps! I'm either running full-bore @710 or idling @176, although I do underclock to 352/176 on screen_off. :)

    A better question might be, "what would you like to do with/to it?" ;)

    Yeah it does do that (really well in fact), although I wasn't sure if adz would be using it on V12. I haven't followed V12 much since switching to froyo.

    Hi all, slightly off topic, but I am running v12. A couple of days ago my smilie keyboard key disappeared. How do I get this back, something about commit suicide on the kb, but can't figure it out (manual smilie) :)

    Look in the Language and Keyboard part of the settings. Make sure HTC_IME mod is ticked, and then go to it's settings. Make sure the option for the smiley button is enabled in there.

    Then to go a text box, long press on it, pick Choose Input Method and make sure HTC_IME is selected.
