    Milestone Overclock consists of a kernel module for OMAP3 phones with Android to unlock any processor frequency/voltage combination and a companion graphical app to ease the configuration. The phone must be rooted so that the kernel module can be loaded.

    The module has an interface in /proc/overclock/* that allows enabling and disabling of overclock in runtime without rebooting. No flashing of custom roms or kernels is needed, since that is not even possible with the Milestone, Droid X and others.

    We've been overclocking our Milestone since the very start of the project.

    Thanks for this information nonetheless.

    Out of curiosity, what's the maximum frequency you have tried and is stable?

    1.2GHz for me

    I use 900MHz with 100% stability.

    Why only 900MHz? Because in combination with vsel 56 it gives the best performace vs battery life results.

    At 1.2GHz I get a day out of it with light surfing, watching tv shows, and texting. I'm usually around 50-40% after 12-13 hours of use.:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Yeah, I usually use the phone a bit more and that is why I need a bit more battery, but still I am not certain there will be any change in performance at 1.2GHz.

    I'll agree there, it won't be a huge difference so longer battery life would be a bonus for sure.
