    I'm a drifter.. here and there.
    I turned FreeWells writeup into an update.zip - ALL CREDIT GOES TO HIM!

    This is also now available in Rom Manager under Beesley's Build.Props

    MAKE SURE TO BOOTSTRAP BEFORE RUNNING ROM MANAGER! IT HELPS AVOID ISSUES



    All you need to do now is run the insmod code and setscaling100.sh from terminal after flashing this.

    Beesleys OC Update.zip

    After you flash that and reboot..

    From a terminal with "su" (#)

    insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko <--- DONT FORGET THE "SPACE" AFTER INSMOD!!
    setscaling100.sh



    Boom. Done. 1.38Ghz

    If your phone cant run that high, edit the values via root explorer.

    People who did the OTA should have no problems

    ===========================================

    I recommend you get the app called GScript and then make the following scripts (very easy!)


    To turn OC On

    Code (Text):
    1. insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
    2. setscaling100.sh
    To turn OC Off

    Code (Text):
    1. rmmod overclock.ko

    This will allow pushbutton OC enabling upon reboot. Also makes for easy testing of new values if you edit the setscaling100.sh via root explorer.

    Hope this makes it a little easier!

    Awesome. Does this keep the values after a reboot?

    oh ok. ended up using ur settings. when running benchmark a few times i get in the 1830 rage and 1720 rage. will play around with it to try for something higher possibly. still trying to figure out values and what not as far as voltage and frequency. it would really help for a link to explanations or something (im such a nooob)

    but the gscript does come in handy!!

    all three values must be changed.. everywhere it says 138, must be changed to 140

    well yeah thats what i meant. trying to find a good tweak to get 1.4
    i get it running for a couple mins but then i gets the boot. lol\
    its hard cuz you dont know whether to increase voltage or freq or decrease. or only change 1 of the values, 2, 3,...etc

    Is anyone seeing any battery life improvement from this? Nvm, I guess it's a bit too early to notice a big difference :)

    Note: I continue getting an error message when trying to dl from ROM Manager; doesn't download.

    yes. in terminal emulator you need to execute the following commands:

    insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
    setscaling100.sh

    you will need to do this on every boot since it goes back to stock after a boot. or use gscript to execute that in one click.

    also use setcpu to monitor and change the clockspeed after you execute the script.

    if you dont have a terminal emulator already then get one from the market. then open it and type:

    su
    insmod /system/lib/modules/overclock.ko
    setscaling100.sh

    also read up on this thread.

    The overclock is working great on my phone. Phone is running super-fast. I can't run Quadrant though. I click run full benchmark and the screen comes up but nothing happens. Can this be from overclocking? I never had a problem running it before, even when I was at 1100.
     
  18. Question about Terminal Emulator, I haven't tried it since using the hotspot work around, but I had tried it before and couldn't get it to work because I don't have internet on my computer except through my phone, and I couldn't get the Terminal Emulator to work because it needed to use Wifi, but while using Wireless Tether my phone wouldn't run a wireless connection and run Wifi at the same time. Does anyone know any way around this? Or do I just have to plug my phone into the computer?

    Or, can I just open this up on the web browser on my phone and save that file straight to my SD card?
     
  19. Should you be deodexed before you flash this?

    What are the benefits to overclocking? I've been underclocking with setcpu, just wondering if this is worth the trouble. Thanks.

    what are the chances of setcpu interfering with this overclock? My phone reboots when I enable the overclock. using the leaked 2.2

    Thanks for doing this. I wanted to try it, but was a little scared with all the code, was thinking about trying tonight when I had some time, but this is awesome. I am done and it is working great.

    Downloaded from ROM Manager and installed... phone runs SOOO slow after issuing commands via Terminal Emulator. I've had to pull the battery because the phone becomes so slow and unresponsive. Would it be better to test lowering 138 to 125? Or adjusting Voltage?

    You can use this script in GScipt to verify the OC settings....

    Code (Text):
    1. cat /proc/overclock/mpu_opps

    What about a way to undo and redo the permanent settings?

    Code (Text):
    1. # cp install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    2. # chmod 755 /system/etc/install-recovery.sh
    btw.....the install-recovery.sh needs to be edited if you're using the setscaling100.sh file.
