    OverclockWidget works for underclocking... overclocking will require building a custom kernel, which doesn't look easy at the moment.

    No overclocking yet, hopefully we will see something in the future but I dont think it'll be anytime before FroYo. Also I dont see Ally's CPU going above 800mhz because the Palm Pre Plus has exact same one and those guys were not able to run it stable above 800mhz.

    I own a Palm Pre in addition to an Ally. We have a stable 1GHz kernel as well as a testing 1.2GHz kernel... But keep in mind this was weeks of testing and playing with voltages, not "cpu++, recompile".

    Well yeah, of course. I wouldn't expect this sort of thing to be easy at all. But damn. 1.2GHz... I bet within a few months there will be several palm pre-related explosions.

    Yeah that is insane for this CPU, I wonder why nobody copied the voltages from Palm Pre kernel and put them on the Ally kernel, gonna have a few talks about this to certain people... hmm

    Yeah 1.2? That's asking for an explosion. When i overclocked my O2 to 1.2 it over heated ever3 minutes...

    haha I guess you'll have to talk to unixpsycho: uNiXpSyChO

    lol probably something like that. Though, I run an optimized kernel that runs 800MHz when the screen is on, and scales down to 500 when the screen is off, and battery life actually seems better than the stock.

    Not that I know of. Trident and RedFury are working on Velocity 0.2, which doesn't have oc'ing, but later versions might. That other Ally semi-dev (starts with a 'd') is busy being aloof and randomly releasing major recovery image updates and kernels.

    So... I'm not sure how fast these guys are, but if I had to pick a timeframe, I'd say... maybe a month until we start seeing progress in oc'ing?

    Drellisdee had some progress in overclocking. I tested the Kernel, it booted extremely fast but then got Kernel Panic and crashed =/... But I think its getting there.

    Got the Ally to run at 800mhz for about 4min yesterday, drellisdee got it to run for about 10min and then got kernel panic, blah.

    Still, that's a good deal of progress. Hey, is there anyways to pipe dbus through adb or something? That'd be useful.

    Same phone but faster. A lot faster boot time and snappier, not enough time to actually do anything

    Agreed. There aren't many things that interest me in root other than asthetics and wifi tether. An overclock with underclock on sleep would do this phone wonders. Even typing on this website on my phone is sluggish.
