    So now that we have the 2.2 update and overclocking is not working what would need to be done to get things running again?

    Tried also. Can't get it to recognize clock changes. Guess we are going to need a new overclock.ko.

    Oh well, 2.2 runs about the same as my overclocked 2.1 anyway...suppose I can wait for a new overclocking hack!

    (not to mention all the fun stuff that's going to follow shortly since we can load custom roms)

    if you guys modify the build.prop file per birdman you can get over 2000 on quadrant, no overclock

    But with overclocking we could get even higher scores and run a lower voltage along with it.

    I haven't noticed any performance benefits from doing this ... other than an improved quadrant score. I'm wondering if it's only real consequence is to increase the score...

    I'm with you, a higher score is nice but I really don't feel like it performs any better. During the running of quadrant the frame rates are the same as they were before changing the settings from false to true. The thing I have noticed is that the frame rates are actually slower now than when I was rooted and overclocked with 2.1.

    I have the paid quadrant, and after birds fixes, the cpu score is WAY up.

    I did the birds instructions and could not play back any videos. Did get a quad score of over 2200 after rebooting. Really didn't notice much of a change. Don't see where it is worth it if we can view videos

    Well, of course it displays a score increase. The question is whether that displayed increase represents performance increase, or if it's something like the Galaxy S hack. I mean, for the CPU score to jump so much and for us not to notice a performance difference is sketchy.

    FYI guys, the stagefright tweak breaks playback of videos. It also, apparently decreases audio quality. The stagefright media player is better at decoding h.264 (which quadrant uses to determine score) than the stock opencore player, but it's worse at audio playback. I couldn't even play videos I'd recorded through gallery.

    See here

    and here

    EDIT: Apparently Stagefright has a problem playing .3gp videos. This is coincidently the X's native recording format. So, perhaps Stagefright is the better option (assuming audio quality doesn't suffer too much), but it currently breaks video playback.

    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    although, i notice other videos seem to be a bit smoother.

    probably placebo affect.

    I just tried playing a video that I had recorded and it does not play. This is after changing the 4 settings to true.

    Ok, so putting the stage fright stuff behind us, as I really need video playback and did not notice any real performance increase, what are the thoughts about getting overclocking back.

    it still can be done, but the files have to be modified to do it the same way. But personally I am hoping for those custom kernels:D

    Could any of the original people that worked on the 2.1 overclock take a look at updating it to work with 2.2? I really don't even wan to overclock, I just want to drop the voltage from the ridiculous default amounts. Plus, for you overclockers, maybe the new kernel can be pushed a bit farther :)

    I would think their main focus now is getting custom kernels to work not re-editing the milestone mod to work for X 2.2

    True, that would be the optimal solution. However, with how the bootloader is locked down insanely, I would think a few edits (if that is all it takes, may be completely different) to the existing method would be a lot easier and simpler to do. Then continue work on custom kernels and a method to flash them.

    probably, wonder why no one has released it yet.

    Hopefully we can get the ability to overclock 2.2 soon...
