So last week I decided I wanted to try overclocking my Droid. I had been running on Froyo for about a week before that and was looking for something else to mess around with. I downloaded one of the kernels from here under "Kernels for (Froyo) Android 2.2 Only *Low Voltage*". It was the 800MHz kernel. That was running fine for a couple hours. Then I read about people overclocking to 1GHz and beyond, so I downloaded a 1000MHz kernel from that same site. By the way I had setCPU installed and profiles set up for charging, screen off, battery temp, etc. "Set on boot" or whatever that option is was also checked. After installing the 1000MHz kernel, immediately on booting up, my battery meter read 0% (it was 70-80% before installing) and immediately shut off. When I plugged the phone into my charger it was stuck in a boot loop. Figuring that I had somehow fried the battery, I went to Verizon and shelled out $45 for a new one. I put the battery in and reflashed back to stock. The phone ran great all weekend. Today I decided to root the phone again. I found out that the ROM i used to root was capable of overclocking 1GHz. I set up setCPU for 800MHz just to be safe and set all of my profiles, etc. how it should be. After rebooting for one reason or another, it seems that I've now fried this battery as well. Same symptoms as before, but now at a lower clock speed (I was able to run 800MHz before with no problems. So why do I keep frying batteries? Is there a setting I'm missing, or am I just one of the unlucky ones that got a Droid that isn't capable of overclocking?
