    Seen several topics on other phones, but not the Ally to my knowledge.

    I have mine rooted with Gingerbreak, took it back to Froyo 2.2.1, and am now running Velocity 1.0. I'm using SetCPU to overclock to processor to ~729/748 when its in use. I haven't done the battery system file delete after the phone dies and then charge to full capacity yet, but I've noticed I'm not getting as great a battery life out of it as I think I could be (I know it's got a lot to do with the overclock, but...)

    So are there any kernels out there that allow for undervolting the Ally? With Voltage Control, it said my kernel wouldn't allow for underclocking, and I can only use it in "Limited Mode".

    If there's no real way to do it I'll stick with the battery system file delete and maybe throttle back to 700.

    Thanks! First post here, bit of a long time lurker (used this forum to root and finally succeed in getting Velocity on it, and now I love this phone).

    I have only seen over/under clock solutions allow you to adjust the CPU frequency on Ally. I know of none that would actually let you adjust the voltage to the CPU.
