Believe what you want. The rest of us have overclocked devices in our pockets.

Re: Overclocking made it MORE stable?! Am I crazy?

So, let's see.... Better performance and better (claimed up to 40% better) battery life without getting a new phone ? Hmmmm... Where do I sign ?

Great another thing to study up on...

Is this not true? If not please explain how do I get the phone to OC above 604 Disconnect the charger and keep the setting without getting SOD.

Thanks
OverClock Tool 1.5 is easiest to use, no SOD, and works on battery.
Msm7kCpuSpeed requires scripts to use on battery alone and avoid SOD.

Thanks oneday.

I ran OCT 1.5 and my settings are

748.8 Interval 1000
#steps 3
load max 33
Load min 15
Jump max 20
Jump min 3

When I go to 768 my phone starts to freeze. Do you think there is anything else I can try to make it run faster or a setting I should try adjusting?

To be honest Im not sure if its very noticeable other then moving through Total commander with a little more ease.

Re: Overclocking made it MORE stable?! Am I crazy?

Thanks creedo for bringing this to light, and one80oneday for providing the link. I'm going to give this a try.

Re: Overclocking made it MORE stable?! Am I crazy?

Good to see I'm not just imagining this. I think this is how the phone is MEANT to be run with wm6.5 and the newest sense. It's like that extra processing power is being used to clean up the garbage and free up RAM that used to stay tied up. I'm STILL showing about 66% memory usage after days of running it.

It's like the memory leak is fixed and therefore everything is fixed... nothing runs slow or crashes because the memory is where it's supposed to be.

This really does make the phone 10x more usable and stable. Don't buy the stuff about needing AC power or dealing with reboot loops or crashes. Trying this mod is safe because the settings do not stick after a reboot. So you won't get locked out of your phone. You can, after using it for a while, choose to make the settings stick.

I hate to be critical but the setcpuspeed app (the one in gono's guide) just isn't as good as overclock tool. By default, it doesn't have all those mysterious settings set correctly (steps, interval, etc.) and it doesn't offer any way to change them. So while it technically runs at a higher clock speed, it seems almost doomed to cause problems.

I think the specific OCT settings thread has a great explanation of what all those settings mean, but honestly the defaults will work for most people I think. If the phone gives problems at a certain speed using those defaults, just ratchet it down a notch instead of trying to squeeze a few more Mhz out.

OCT 1.5 is probably tied with mightyrom for the single best thing I could do to my phone.

Re: Overclocking made it MORE stable?! Am I crazy?

creedo I was about to ask what rom you were running. I am also running mightyrom and after about 2 weeks its gotten super sluggish. HTC Sense and HTC Messaging are just so slow. I am rebooting at least once a day.

Re: Overclocking made it MORE stable?! Am I crazy?

You are not crazy. It is much more stable. I was an early adopter and am still using the old scripts. I did have a crash recently that I had to restore from backups, but had nothing to do with OC. Almost never have to reboot.

Now with the new Opera Mini 5.1 browser, I am set for a couple years no matter what MS or Apple throws on the market.
