    Looking to overclock this thing, but SetCPU is not doing the job (at leasr I don't see any proof that it is). Any ideas/thoughts/suggestions?

    I think you need to install a different kernel. Check out shabbypenguin's kernel in XDA or you can flash the Homebase ROM which, depending on the version, will allow you to overclock it.

    To do that I will need to unlock the bootloader right? Know of any good ROMs for the Photon? Thanks.

    Supposedly, Alien and Homebase ROM are the best. You will need to unlock the bootloader, be very careful though and make sure that you make backups, charge your phone and be ready to flash back to stock if something goes wrong.
