    I just meant, I am ready for opposing opinions and what not. Not that you don't know what you are talking about. Like I said...the whole WW debacle is a little fuzzy to me...it's not clear what did or didn't happen. Why is it that these things are always so cloudy as far as details? No one knows what really happened other than a select few, and the rest of us have to take sides on who is right or wrong because no one will tell us. I don't know you from adam, but the 'author' of WW has helped me lots...so I would tend to defend/take his side because according to him, it's a minor issue. Yet you make it sound like he is the devil himself...so who are we supposed to believe? For all we know, the people 'running' the forums are creating a monopoly for them and their buddies by blocking/claiming theft on work that isn't theirs. I realize this probably isn't the case, but you see what I am getting at right?

    I understand. And I am not trying to start anything. As far as credit goes, no, I don't care. If someone stole some work of mine and didn't give me due credit, it would just make me that much more bad ass. If my work is so great that it was copied/stolen/used to make something better I would find it flattering. I am certain not many share this view.

    lol. This is what I keep telling Bill Gates and the music industry. They should be flattered.

    I also don't know what happened or didn't happen in this situation. However, this reasoning is just wrong if there is truth to what AZ is being accused of.
    These devs spend hours and hours working on these roms.....and not just for the fun of it. some are expecting/hoping to see some cash come their way.
    So feeling flattered isn't going to help their wifes go shopping while they do their thing.

    Anyone trying to 'make a living' on open source hacking/'ROM'ing' might want to rethink their career choices anyhoo...but I hear what you are saying.

    Getting back on topic...

    Has anyone actually seen/felt a difference when overclocking a rom and going from say 3 mflops to 5 mflops?

    I sit at 768 now with stock IC3 (no mods)... Seems uber-stable and fairly quick... Maybe I need to check out my floppity flops to see what all the noise is about :p

    I'll go look for the application to test and get back if it's exciting enough...

    Really? I just haven't seen it.

    I see how much faster some roms are than others. But i can see this before i even OC it. It's just a smoother/faster running rom.

    I then OC just because i can.... but dont notice much difference.

    Maybe it's just me :rolleyes:

    LOL... I had 3.3... What's even funnier is looking at the top 10 on Linpak. We get all excited if we hit the magic 5 number, and the Droid and Nexus One is in the 50s!

    Then when you look at Quadrant, that is just depressing.

    I'd be willing to bet it's the same principles as PC OCing... 5-10% increase at MAX.

    The JIT compiler on the other hand... I'm not sure... Depends on how optimized it is.

    the droid is a behemoth, just wait till the Incredible is Rooted. I haven't seen any Evo4G's yet with overclock and JIT. Those snapdragons are gonna roar.
    Our little Eris does all it can do with what HTC gave and the devs tinkered it to make it as good as it can be.

    Ya... I'm fairly happy with my current ROM... It's pretty snappy, and does most of what I need it to do without crashing all the time (although, there was that one time)...

    The fact that it has full Navi and MMS is a big seller on me (even though I never use MMS). I'm not too keen on the whole LWP idea because I heard on some ROMS it breaks Navi. Weird that LWP is such a big deal - I had it on my little LG Chocolate!

    The only thing I'm not loving is the white status bar... Compared to my old phone though, this thing is operating like I would expect an Android to operate stock.

    I might do a different home. I liked Launcher Pro quite a bit, but if I had the time, I'd be kicking it with SweeterHome... It's just too much of a time drainer right now.

    I won't claim mega boosts in performance, but with LWP on and very heavy use I get no lag...that only occured after I installed JIT and OC'd.

    And add on top of all that, I get better battery life as well. So its not just numbers. Its a whole lot more.

    Yes! Good call. Battery life increased. I never had much issue with the Eris battery anyways, it used to be about 20% left when I got home from work every day, but now it's 40-60% after my day at work.

    I think changing the sleep setcpu to 480/240 made a huge difference though as well.

    I haven't set a sleep profile yet. I should probably do that. I just clicked on failsafe.

    My sleep profile is low low. I found that my phone is using a lot less battery now thanks to profiles

    I've got Ivanmmj's Eris Official 1.0 w/OC installed and I have a question: am I already overclocked?

    I never launched setCPU or tried to tweak any settings related to overclocking. I just today put the setCPU widget on my home screen (didn't even know there was one until I read about it in a recent thread) and saw 710 max, 19 min w/the temperature (about 77 degrees). My linpack score has always been right at 3.0 MFLOPS whilst rooted and I'm happy with the phone's speed and battery life. I just assumed that since I never tweaked anything, I was running at the phone's default CPU speed / clock cycle...

    So basically, have I been overclocked all this time w/o knowing it? :)

    Okay, so I DO think I'm already overclocked at 710 MHz. I think this is the default setting for this ROM (which is cool). Thanks to BlueDC2 for suggesting verifying the clock speed with System Panel.
