    I can't get it to work either. My phone just won't boot up. The instructions are pretty straight forward also lol. It may just be my phone. Oh well, I'm sure there will be other kernels. Keep up the awesome work!

    Are you on a ZVC or ZV4 rom? If you're on the older version (ZV9 or ZV3), it won't work.

    I really wanted that status bar and transparent background from ur MB v1.2 rom for my zv4 stock rom so I was messing around in UOT few days ago. Anyway I think the icon pack I used was cianbread(can't double check right now because the kitchen is full) and the corresponding color for text and other stuff is 00CCCC.

    This is how the rest of what I did looks.

    Installed v1.1 on Sprint ZVC, booted up with no permission fix/cache wipe. Everything seems to be in order :thumbup:

    Benchmark went up about 200 points on battery, not bad. Thanks ndno.

    Now to test drive :driver:

    It's a given that it'll drain a bit faster.
    Use different settings on Setcpu (Or another similar app) for screen off/charging/profiles.
    It's always worth it to explore with different settings.
    I had my battery last 8 hours with full use.
    That's not bad considering I'm ALWAYS on it. =] YMMV.

    @ndno - Outstanding work. Decided to take the plunge and glad I did...installed flawlessly, and I'm seeing the same performance increase as you. It gives the phone that little extra boost it desperately needed.

    I have some good news. Thank to Monster for pointing me to the tekahuna milestone overclock source code. I was able to tweak the P970 (LG Optimus Black) profile just a bit and compile it against the ZVC kernel we're using (I had to disable module versioning in the kernel to allow the module to load). Anyways, I'm now able to load the overclock module successfully and access the /proc/overclock fields :)

    What this means:
    With the overclock module, after I load it, I can change the frequency table dynamically, like adding a new frequency scale and the corresponding voltage. This allows me to experiment with different frequencies and different corresponding voltages dynamically. With the OC kernel I did originally, I had to keep trying new values and constantly recompiling and trying it out; the 1.2GHz you're using in the OP was a result of a lot of trial and error before I got it working. Hopefully with the overclock module, we can try to overclock (as well as underclock) other values. Also, we can attempt to "undervolt" in an attempt to prolong our battery life.

    Let me do some testing first before I post the software for you to try out. I will create another thread and hopefully some of you can experiment and post your findings. Monster already pointed out the volt table values and corresponding frequencies so we can start from there.

    Here's some reading about the overclock module if you're interested:

    KernelModule - milestone-overclock - How to use the kernel module - Overclocking your rooted Motorola Milestone, Droid, Droid X/2 and others! - Google Project Hosting

    EDIT: Sorry folks, I jumped the gun. If the developer (tekahuna) can get the LG Optimus Black (P970) to work, then this will work. At this point, all I can do is read the frequency / volt table. Trying to change crashes the phone. I think the kernel is not "tweaked" to support it yet and that's beyond the scope of my understanding at this point.
