    I'm running Sensable and I think it has the older kernal since the max is 710. I'm primarily concerned about battery life, so I wouldn't be going above that. But would upgrading to the zanfur kernal help with battery life too?

    It might... wont hurt to have the latest and greatest, even if you're not planning on OCing past 710

    Overclock Patch and update.zip - xda-developers

    Zanfur actually doesn't recommend going past 768. I also have mine set at 710. It's fast enough for me.

    Yeah, I went ahead and flashed it. I guess I'll see how battery life is tomorrow. Thanks.

    Sorry... guess I should have specified (DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS :) ), I am actually rooted. I did it this morning (followed with cableguy had for advice) and I flashed EE 3.0. I downloaded the SETCPU program, but when I go to move any of the bars in either direction, is freezes and I have to battery pull. To note, it only lets me go up to 528 for the max cpu. I rooted cause I wanted to take advantage of this. So, in light of the new info, got any suggestions? Anyone?

    And I'll change my info (<---) right now :)

    that is weird....528 max?!
    by any chance do you have profiles on and one is set to above 710?

    Could it be that im moving the slider too fast? I was just reading a thread of xda for the patch fix and he says to move slowly... which (DETAILS) I don't, I just take it from default all the way to the max...

    ?? Dunno. I haven't really done anything. I was looking at Caddy's post ^^ and going step by step, but it freezes when I move the bars :(

    I've accidently silide that thing way too fast before and the thing freezes up.
    Very important to NOT have 'set on boot' checked. A simple battery pull will fix this.

    However, this might not be your problem since you said your max is 528, right?
    I think this might be because the SetCPU DEV requested that this not be included with roms, that way user have the option to donate when they download it. I'm assuming this is the SetCPU that was included with EE?
    Or did you get it from the MArket?

    Try flashing a newer one with the link above. Where did you get your version of SetCPU?

    I didnt think there was one with EE. I downloaded it from the market. Flashing a newer one, like the patch listed above?

    Ok... The market one was probably the problem. I haven't downloaded it from there myself.

    Those new ones should do the trick

    if your setcpu wont go past 528 and you are on a oc kernel (most all roms)

    uninstall and reinstall setcpu if you can. if not find setcpu.txt (something like that) in your sd card root and delete it and reboot.

    I have tried both of his (the zip file on the V 1.6, and the market) and they both do it. I'm uninstalling right now... we'll see.

    I reinstalled it, tried moving the min bar up, and it reset my phone... weird.

    namu1107 Well-Known Member

    Nope.. still not working. I am at work right now so I'll have to try deleting the setcpu.txt in the morning. This is just getting frustrated. Could flashing to another rom help?

    Thanks for the help though...

    you can use astro or any file exploer to delete the txt file

    I looked in astro, but didn't see the file name... i'll look again though

    Thought I would give you guys a heads up on what I noticed. I was laying in bed today trying to organize things on my phone. I noticed there was a TERRRRRIIIIIIBBBBBLLLLLEEE lag, and that my phone kept going into failsafe mode. I thought it was a custom lock screen I had installed, but I did a wipe and restored a NAND recovery of before that and it was still failing. Then I POSSIBLY pinpointed the culprit.... My phone was on the charger, and the battery was getting warm because of its charge, so it kicked it into FS mode. I know, you guys probably are thinking "duh, that's obvious", but if you didn't know that, and you ever have this problem, then here is a possible explanation.

    Plus, the silicone covering I think was keeping in the heat. Took it off and its cooling down now.

    i use the cruvefish battery life widget, add extra info on its settings, and it shows your temp in C so you can monitor your heat

    also if it gets hot i will set it on a fan or in front of an AC vent to cool it down.

    I'm running EE now, OC'd to 806. Smooth, fast, no issues.:cool:

    SetCPU will slide it to 864. Not going there.

    I have to say that, in Ivan's, I changed to Caddyman's suggestions and it was suddenly battery-eating time. I set the mins back to 19200 and my battery is doing much better again, and there is still no lag. YMMV, I guess.

    Weird...I've still got mine set to Caddyman's suggestions and my battery life seems better :)confused: but :)). No statistics or emperical evidence to support this, but I'm sort of thinking that not having previously set a sleep profile, I wasn't sleeping at a lower clock rate and now I am.

    Man, these computer thingys be complicated! :eek:
