    I also have problems OC my phone it just dont like it. some phones can handle more than others. it might just be finding the best kernel and oc settings for your phone.

    I have freedom .9 overclocked to 1190 at the moment and can't really tell much difference except maybe web pages seem to load a little faster. I tried the same speed on chopsuey and it actually seemed to make my phone slower. Is that normal???

    I've been rooted for awhile but just started messing with stuff in the last week or so.

    i'm on xplod aosp rom with the tiamat 4.0.8 sbc kernel and for some reason this is the only rom/kernel combo that i can overclock to 1228. my phone is super zippy. no need for the supercharger script. i'm using setcpu with the smartass v2 governor.

    Yeah I am using the stock rom. I was told by the guy who flashed it to Metro PCS that If I changed roms I would have to re-flash and at $65.00 I don't really want to do that.

    ah i see then you can just flash a gingerbread sense kernel. try out the freedom kernels. maybe start out with the aggressive freedom first. then get setcpu to overclock your phone.

    Also I just found out that due to the flash to Metro I can't send pics via text. Anyone know of a fix for that? Thanks again for the replys.
