    So basically, he has 800 and 1000 MHz versions available. This does break compatability with TempMonitor for CPU temps and you need to do anther wifi fix, but it's well worth it because:

    -This fixes virtual keyboard responsiveness. It is now very, very fast. Near iPhone quality.

    -Other random fixes with the light sensor, etc.

    Here's some videos comparing before/after:

    Before:
    YouTube - Droid Overclock Kernel Onscreen Keyboard

    After:
    YouTube - Droid Stock 2.0.1 Onscreen Keyboard

    This kernel is the best I've tried, period, for auto-brightness as well...so far, since last night I've seen none of the intermittent flare-ups and moments of laser-brightness that I've seen with every other ROM/kernel I've tried.

    Definitely a keeper, and I've asked Pete if he can integrate the updates into his ROMs...if he doesn't I'll keep flashing back to this kernel.

    Awesome. The touch screen keyboard has been a little too unresponsive for my taste and I had no idea why. Gonna flash this one now.

    Seems some of these Kernel improvements are in Sholes 2.0.4RC1 by the info in the Sholes Repository section..

    EDIT: Must be they didn't according to the info on the 2.0.4 thread..
