    This is my first post, so, I wanted to thank everyone who contributes here. This entire website is a great source of information. That being said...

    I've had good luck with underclocking my rooted evo to save battery power. I am a somewhat experienced overclocker with other devices and I'd like to give it a try on my evo. Is there anyway to overclock without flashing a different kernal? Perhaps an app that I can play with? Thanks!

    Set cpu, but always leave set on boot unchecked until you fing the right settings, if you have it checked and go a little too high, you will be stuck in a bootloop. also make a nand backup before you start messing with your processor just in case you get in the aforementioned bootloop

    You still need a non-stock kernel in order to overclock

    Thanks for the help. Do custom kernels work with the stock Rom? Or is this perhaps an area where I should mix and match?

    You should be able to use a custom kernel with the stock ROM just fine. Just make sure to make a nandroid backup first. Most people will recommend you flash a custom kernel, first, though. You don't *have* to, though.
