    SetCPU didn't work for me until today's update, so disregard this if it worked for everyone else! :p

    Anyway, after updating SetCPU today, I can disable my Perflock, and SetCPU works just fine with the stock kernels on the leaked Froyo ROM. Enjoy!

    Will this OC with the 2.2 kernel? or does this allow you to set the cpu clock manually?

    It only lets you adjust settings within the stock range. You won't be able to overclock until the source code is released and someone makes an overclock kernel.

    Thanks for heads up, installing now...

    But you know what this means! Underclocked "screen off" settings. :) better battery life, ftw!

    i'm running CyanogenMod6 test8 so I started with the third link and i am currently clocked at 1.13GHz. it's runnin great! I can't speak of any other ROMS, i've only used this kernel with the CM6 test8. =]

    Guidelines from hydrakernel.net regarding the kernels:

    1. Try the 1st link (in overclock section) FIRST, only if you have stability issues (bootloop/lockup/reboots) should you then move on to the 2nd link with the slight overvolt at the 1.15ghz slot. If the 2nd link fails for you then move on to the 3rd link, this is a 1.113ghz kernel with stock 1ghz speeds. If the 3rd link fails for you move on to the 4th link, this is a 1.113ghz kernel with a 25mv overvolt at only this speed. If by some slim chance NONE of these work for you, stick with the stock speed undervolt kernel.

    2. If you are using CM6 you should start with the 3rd link instead of the 1st link as the first 2 kernels are unstable with CM6.

    3. I recommend not using the setcpu controls or governor with these kernels. Let the stock governor do the work. If you have setcpu installed I recommend clearing out the settings before flashing the kernels. You can use it to monitor cpu speeds or an app from the market called systempanel if so desired.

    So if I want to set up a profile for when the screen is off to save on battery life what setting/speeds should I use?
  8. These kernels are not for 2.2... They are using the older kernel and not .32, so you will lose some functionality (camera for sure, maybe a few other items)

    aw dang I didn't realize that. I hadn't tried to use the camera with the hydra kernel until you mentioned it. shoot. I guess I'll go back to the old kernel.

    are there any good .32 kernels out there that will work with my CM6?

    go to the profiles tab in SetCPU, select enable profiles. then select add profile. in the Condition menu, select screen off. drag the max and min down as low as it will go. under priority, make this one 100% (high) that way no matter what other profiles you set up, when the screen is off this one will take priority. you can use this to set up certain speeds based on battery life too, that way when your batter is close to dying you can lower the CPU speed and try to make the batter last a bit longer.

    Guys I still don't think it works right. I do the perflock disabler and all is fine until I restart the phone than it stops working until I do the perflock disabler again.

    This is the way it has always been for me, even since 2.1

    That's how it's supposed to work. You have to disable perflock every time you reboot the phone, because there is a chance the phone could crash. If you have it set to disable the perflock automatically, and the phone crashes, you'd be stuck in an endless reboot cycle.

    But this is the way it has always been for me. This worked with the perflock disabler (and stock kernals) since 2.1

    I just thought something had changed.

    What changed was that on the version of Froyo I was running (the nonmodified leaked ROM version), SetCPU didn't let me disable my perflock until yesterday.
