I did. Be careful, once set it will stay set. Test before you apply at boot! Also, there is not "return to stock option", but the stock settings are there. Check the comments on Droid Life for them.

I see a "Go back to stock freq's & voltage" setting under essentially every menu. I don't know why you all don't see this.

Also, I'm seeing much better stability from this app when I overclock than the other app. I'm not sure what they do different but the other one couldn't get through a Quadrant run stable at 1.1 and I couldn't even get Quadrant to open at any higher setting.

So far for me, 1.1GHz is stable under Medium and High voltages but 1.25GHz is unstable at high. Playing a bit more with this to see what I can peak out at while staying stable, then will monitor temps under load.

[Edit]
I'm ignoring the Ultra Low Voltage option. However, it seems that no matter how much voltage I throw at it, it's stable at 1.15GHz but not at 1.2GHz. Must not have a fast chip in my phone. :(

[Edit2]
I'm now going at this from the other end - underclocking. My phone appears stable at 900MHz at Ultra Low Voltage.

[Edit3]
Okay, so Ultra low to High voltage are all stable at 1.15GHz but nothing is stable at 1.2GHz. I must have a hard cap there. Only thing left to test is to ignore 1.2GHz and try 1.25/1.3/1.35 in case they play nicely despite 1.2 not.

I agree this app is more stable for me as well! I'm running 1.15 on high and it is stable so far!

Don't expect every phone to be able to hit more than ~1.15 GHz. That seems to be the general cutoff for whatever reason.

Jaxidian
10-22-2010, 12:24 PM
Ouch! At 1.15, I get over 1600 in Quadrant. However, at 900, I get ~500! Is this right - is this supposed to drop off that quickly?

Everyday activities really won't be affected much. It is when the processor is under the heavy loads (gaming, video player, etc) that you will see a significant boost. I would be worried about running it that high all the time...

Yea i found that 1.45hz was unstable so I went down to 1.35hz on low voltage and so far its perfect

It seems web surfing on the browser is a lot quicker now and all apps seem to be quicker as well.

What I'm really interested in is if lowering the voltage will increase battery life. I heard its the voltage and not the cpu speed that drains the battery

I just fell in love with my X all over again

The more power flowing into the processor the more power drained. You heard right about how the clock speed does not affect battery life. The voltage does. I am eager to hear you results when you lower the voltage.

Did anyone get a "failed to install overclocking componets""contact the developer for help" or something like that when you click on the voltages? I just uninstalled the app and asked for a refund. I did it myself and I'm running 1.35 at 68vsels... I would like the app though so I could try the lower voltages w/o editing all myself, but I can't use it... anyone have an idea?

i just had a strange experience with this...I went to a movie with my phone in my pocket. it sat there, unused for about 2 hours. when the movie was over i pulled my phone out and everything on my home screens was gone and it was really sluggish. a reboot fixed it for now. I'm running high voltage 1.15. would it be better to lower the clock speed or the voltage. thanks

715 in quad?! If so, that is not good at all. You should be getting close to 1500.

Someone mentioned that he got 1.15 on very low running stable and smooth. I am running 1.15 on low an testing it.

Just make sure not to set to boot until you test it and make sure it works fine.

blu1080
10-23-2010, 01:43 AM
if you do set on boot and don't like it you can just go back in the app and set them back to stock. I'm running 1.15 with low voltage and just got 1644 with quadrant. So far these setting have been very stable with no excess heat that i can tell.

Had the same issue, i contacted JRummy, he replied within an hour, just needed to go back to the Market and wala, there was an update available. Updated the app and all is well!!!
This app has turned a already fast Rubix 1.0 into a freak of nature, Ran the phone for 2 hours at Reg. voltage and 1.45, i'm not a gamer so some may ask why... i'll tell ya why everything i do is almost instant, it did finally freeze during a text, but it did that stock!!! I decided to install Quad before i turned it down just to were i was at.... holy ****... my 3 test average was 1922, That was with Set Cpu set to performance mode. I did back it off to Reg. volts and 1.35 and will run it that way tomorrow to see how it holds up.

Thanks JRummy and all the Android Dev's!!!!!

I'm running low voltage at 1.15 and quadrant scores average 1600.
One piece of advice for anyone running this...dont set the boot frequencies before making 100% sure that it is working perfectly. If you do the phone will go into infinite boot loop, don't ask me how I know. Thankfully I had rom manager and clockwork recovery mod installed and restored boot and system from backup...which worked like a charm. Being a noob does have it's benefits...overly cautious.

10-23-2010, 09:39 AM
I've stopped using this and the other overclock tool. Killed battery life because, even after going back to stock, my phone would spend 90% time at the mac speed instead of 90% at the lowest speed.

Yea, I got a full battery and i'm gonna try out the low voltage at different settings to test stability and battery level.

I had alot of freezes at the 1.45hz setting and a couple at the 1.35hz setting. So now I am at the 1.3hz setting and so far so good.

Does anyone know at stock what voltage setting the X uses?

I'm loving this. It's also more stable for me, vs. the app from yesterday. I'm running Focused 1.0 which already is crazy fast and super solid. I set it to ultra low voltage, and kept the cpu at 1GHz, because I was already extremely happy with the speed. So far, my battery life is DEFINITELY improved. I'll report back shortly.

I'm having a problem with this overclock. I initially tried this and it was successful at setting it to 1.1ghz @Ultra Low Voltage, however when I went to SETCPU I was not able to set my speed to 1100mhz. The problem now is when I go to the Jrummy's app and set my speed, it will just crash and say "Activity Low Voltage Frequencies (in application DroidX/2 Overclock) is not responding." It happens if I try other voltages too, none of them works.

Please help. Thanks

All who are having problems. I would do a clockworkmod backup. Wipe Data-Cache 2X. Install Rubix Focused 1.0. Don't install any apps except the JRummy OC and Set CPU.

Then start testing to find the highest GHz that works in the MEDIUM voltage. Then the highest in the LOW voltage. Then finally the highest in the ULV. Once you are stable, install your apps.

At this point, I have refrained from using the install at boot options. I am going to wait a week and see how this all shakes out. Just my opinion, I could be way too conservative on this.



A lot of testing, but this is your toy right?

so im wondering something ive tried both overclock programs and something is bothering me ive tried both on 1.2 GHz and ive tried my best to get the same voltages (i cant get exact because jrummys doesnt show what it has) but on one i cant get past 1.1 without freezing my system, but on jrummys one i can use any voltage with 1.2 and it runs smooth im wondering since ive noticed that most ppl are having problems with going past 1.15 is it our chips or is it something to do with the program being different our fones? (im not disrespecting the programs i think there both great and i really like jrummys design its very eye pleasing) :-)

So I can run fine at these custom settings.

300mhz 25vsel
600mhz 36vsel
800mhz 48vsel
1000mhz 52vsel

but when I do a stress test and leave the program it crashes my phone.
How ever when I just use my phone normal nothing goes wrong.
Can I be safe to say it's okay to leave it at these settings?

Also what are your thoughts on going lower than 300mhz?
So I can make the voltage even lower to save more power on idle.

has anyone been able to get the 1.45GHz stable on high voltage? i end up with a reboot seconds after setting it with both high and low voltage.

last question someone might be able to answer for me. between ultra low, low, medium, and high voltage 1.4/1.45GHz options which will provide a better performance? is more voltage better or lower? thank you.

I for the life of me cant get mine stable. No matter what voltage what speed. Itll be fast as hell and be ok, then I have some music playing sending a text and browsing the web and BOOM. restart... Ive tried just about all those high, med, and low settings.... Havent even been into the UL scales... should I go there next???? Any ideas????

The general rule with any overclock is start with the safest settings first. Try 1.1GHz on Medium voltage. If that works, perhaps turn the voltage to low. Repeat using SMALL STEPS do not make a huge jump. Also, not ever processor is the same, some overclock well others don't. Just try the baby settings and see.

Overclocked to 1.3 GHz at Ultra Low Frequency. Completely stable! I can overclock to 1.35 GHz Stable Low Frequency, but anything higher and it will freeze. Love the app, getting an average of 1600-1700 in Quadrant (compared to 1300-1400 Stock). Thoroughly impressed, H.264 playback has certainly improved!

Tempted to try ultra low voltage but get nervous everytime i see the pop up warning about constant reboots under ultra low. anyone else had any success running ultra low voltage at 1.3 or higher?

What makes overclocking unstable?

And what are the drawbacks of attempting this?

Overclocking is pushing the hardware beyond it's intended range for more performance. What makes it unstable is just that. When you tweak with hardware, you are always going to get oddities. However, not all overclocking is unstable, that is why you test, test, and (did I forget to mention) test.

If you are smart when you overclock the drawbacks are little to none. The most pressing issue is a brick. Be careful when you mess with settings. Always, test a setting and move in small steps. Do not jump from stock to 1.4GHz. Instead try going from stock to 1.1, it really isn't tough. Also overclocking decreases the life of your hardware because you are putting more stress on it. When ever you mess with voltage you also mess with the heat given off from electrical interactions, which messes with the expansion and contraction of the metals in the hardware.

Creating a backup is a must when ever you mess with something like this. However, safety cannot be defined.

Currently found that the best setting for me is 1.35 GHz at low voltage. Tested my luck with ultra-low voltage, and my phone restarts under heavy loads with any speed above 1.2 GHz.

I think a good way to test the stability is by watching videos. I have H.264 Encodes that are running at 1500 CBR, and my phone would restart within seconds with a speed above 1.35 GHz. I will be staying at this speed until I do some further testing, but it looks like this may be a winner.

Man im like the other guy none work for me no matter what voltage. I started at the lowest and worked my way up.

I thought 1.2 or 1.25 worked heck thought even 1.1 worked but after a while just froze becoming unstable. My Droid is stock with the OTA 2.2 froyo update and rooted. I have no themes nor other hacked apps.

I just finished getting a refund so I wouldn't get stuck paying 0.99 and with no results.

Also when u click revert back to stock it puts the lowest at higher then 300mhz and 300 is the stock minimum so its not 100% revert back to stock.

I then restarted my phone and everything is back to stock since I never clicked the start upon boot button.

Really wished it worked for me like it did for a lot of people. Oh we'll stock performance is still amazing.

Yea after the update i'm getting stable results at the 1.35hz at low voltage settings. Before the update anything over 1.2 at low voltage my phone would freeze.

Also, at low voltage I am not seeing any increase in battery life as I expected.

The higher your clock, the more power it needs. Changing the voltage will change how much power the processor uses. In theory, the lower voltage the better battery life and vice versa. However, if you give the processor too little voltage, the clock will be unstable. If you give it too much voltage you can overheat it fast.

Yes they are all the same processors. But no two processors are exactly alike. If you read through some of the overclock threads on various sites, you'll see that many launch day Xs are not able to OC to more than 1.15ghz. This is why some can OC to 1.4ghz and be stable and some like yours can only get to 1.15ghz and be stable.

OK, stupid question.

If all I want to do is have the device change its clockspeed as needed, (ondemand), do I need SetCPU?

In other words, if I install SetCPU and don't customize the profiles: screen off, battery %, temp, etc - is SetCPU doing anything that JRummys app wouldn't do on its own?

Okay, there are apparently some misconceptions about overclocking, and what a clock cycle is.

A microprocessor is comprised of may tiny little logic gates, made up of transistors. These are put together to achieve what we know as the microprocessor, capable of handling multiple instructions.

All of these gates however have a different propagation delay, meaning that it takes time for the result to be available. Obviously you can't use an answer before it's there, so in a processor, everything is synchronized based on the longest delay that exists in the processor.

Not every transistor acts the same, there's a deviation that exists during manufacturing, so it opperates within a certain range, but outside of that, they cannot guarantee that all Omap processors respond the same when the clock cycle is increased.

By overclocking, what you're really doing is telling the processor that the maximum delay is shorter than what it thinks. That's about it.

So instead of it waiting 1000 pico seconds for a result to be available, it will use the result after 800 pico seconds.

Hopefully that clears some things up

So heres my story, if anyone cares. I been playing with this app all week. I got it to hold steady @mv 1.30. Anything higher would reboot within 5 mins. So today I downloaded Stericson's Busybox. Installed to xbin and I've been running @mv 1.45 on performance all day. Just browsing web for info on OC'ing and running benchmarks. The only bug I had was with camcorder, recording the kids carve a pumpkin. Temp ranging from 71f - 97f. Any thoughts? Could it be busy box working some magic in the back round?

Decided to take the plunge and snagged the app from the market. Running 1.35 ULV and everything is running extremely well. No FC's or reboots during normal use. I have noticed the phone gets a bit warmer during web use and the temp has hit 102* but drops quickly after closing the browser. During YouTube HD playback, games (Angry Birds, etc) everything stays cool.

Is the warming during web use ok or should I be looking into other settings.

Most importantly, is there a good stress test to figure out if these settings arent ok -- Quadrant runs great and I am consistently in the 174x range

Hello everyone, i am not ready to set any frequency on boot yet. i have searched this forum and others and cant find what the VSELS are on the ultra low voltage, low voltage on this app. Can someone point me in the right direction on where to find this. Thanks in advance.

I still can't get this app. The Market says it can't find it. Appbrain has it, but when I install it, it says "Not found" Help!

nevermind, the update tells you all the vsels in the settings section. Medium volt is stock 62@100000, lv is -2, and ulv is -4, and hv is +2. if anybody needed to know that.

Hello, which setting is the best of for battery life, i have it set at preset 1.15 ULV.. and my batter is worse than ever..

1.0 ghz ULV.

Any time you overclock you lose battery life.

715 in quad?! If so, that is not good at all. You should be getting close to 1500.

Someone mentioned that he got 1.15 on very low running stable and smooth. I am running 1.15 on low an testing it.

Just make sure not to set to boot until you test it and make sure it works fine.

Everyone says to wait to "set to boot" until you test it and make sure it works fine but what is a good ammount of time for a setting to work at to feel confident to set at boot. And in addition to the amount of time spent with a setting with out reboot is a stress test also needed to qualify a setting to set to boot?

you basically just want to make sure it not going to reboot and keep rebooting every time it powers on Example: say if you set it to ulv 1.4 its pretty much guaranteed to reboot if you set those values on boot than it will just keep booting and rebooting not letting you into the device long enough to change the values, until you restore a back up or sbf

So having your settings to Medium Voltage @ 1.25GHz for over 30-minutes with out crashing and running a stress test for 71seconds with no errors might be a safe bet to "set on boot" ?

umm IMO i would say give it a good 24 hrs or so but you might be ok to set at boot with those values. just make sure you nandroid backup just in case it goes into a loop

just throwing this out there to see if I can get some input... I'm thinking about tweaking the a preset to sorta meet in the middle. i'm thinking 1.25 ulv top end and dropping to 300mhz ulv ... I don't use the phone very often while i'm at work so i'd like to drop it down as low as possible during standby, but when It needs to able to ramp up to 1.25 on demand.. anyone think I would have any issues with this... maybe i'll take it for a spin and report back...

edit - made the changes started 1.20-66v,900-56v,600-46v,300-31v - ran benchmarks quadrants 1400+ stock X 1600+ after the adjustments. over the next couple days i'll get an idea of my battery life and over all operations... besides that I would like to thank all the developers that make all of this possible... If it weren't for you all I could be the "phone dork" that I am today :)

Ok so I have been reading a lot of threads on this and the only danger that I have read is that overclocking and over volting could be damaging. You want the lowest voltage possible on each setting because it will extend your battery life. Also everyones phone is different so there are not a set numbers that will work. Some cpus are better than others.

I am running 1.2 at 54 so i am overclocked but will get better battery life because stock settings are 1.0 at 56. Just set it and if your phone freezes you know it was to low. Go back and move it up.
here are my current settings.
1.200 54 almost tweaked
800 37 as low as it goes
600 31 haven't messed with it yet
300 14 I might could go lower. still tweaking

Here are some personal thoughts too, most people I am seeing are overclocking everything. The only speed i have changed is the top one, and then droped all voltages. That way when i need it i have the power, its there without killing my battery and when im not using it, i was able to drop 300mhz down 12 from 27. thats 50% cut on battery usage.

Also what are your thoughts on going lower than 300mhz?

I have heard that the processor can't go lower than that. I dont know for sure.

Wow, how are you able to have your voltages that low at that clock speed? Even the ultra low voltages for 1.0 are higher than what yours are at, have you stress tested your phone enough to be sure that those settings are completely stable?

ssorensen
11-20-2010, 08:59 PM
I have been listening to music and it was crashing. Its my 300 setting. Im going to up it a little. Also i have been running bench mark test and stress testing with the program. How long do you recomend doing it for. Ill update you on those numbers. They have been very stable for the past day. I lowered the 300 setting down just a coulpe of hours ago.

AirJordan
11-20-2010, 09:24 PM
I'm actually testing mine out right now, but I'm not very experienced with this. Do you know what the second and third slots are used for? I'm going to try to match your settings or even try to go lower. What's the highest clock speed your phone can run on any settings?

ssorensen
11-20-2010, 10:08 PM
Its a challenge then. JK. I have bumped it up to 1.4 and stressed it for 30 seconds no prob. I can't remember what volts i was at. I am up to 17 on 300 mhz. It seems to be running fine. The second and third slot are for intermediate speeds. I left them stock and lowered the volts. I seem to have a great processor. I have seen people go as low as 12 at 300 though. Ya keep me updated. Just don't set the values to boot untill a lot of testing. I am using DX/D2 overclocker great program. what are you using.

AirJordan
11-20-2010, 10:45 PM
Haha, yea you do have a nice processor. If i go up anything higher from 1.3 my phone starts to freeze up. I'm still gonna see what i can do though, and I'm using JRummy's DX/D2 overclocker

What do you guys have your governor set at? I have also noticed that i get a higher score on 1.2 with medium voltage than with low voltage?

Mateenager
11-25-2010, 09:46 PM
Okay so for a noob question...

I rooted and I even rooted my original Droid.

However, what is the difference between the different Voltages?

For example, difference between low, medium, or high voltages for the same frequencies?

Mateenager
11-25-2010, 10:50 PM
Okay so this isnt the same as the Droid 1 where I have to install kernels and stuff to overclock, right? (I have no problems doing that, I know how to do it)

I just run this app and select my frequency, and I'm overclocked?

When I reboot my phone and go to set CPU, it automatically shows up on my widget as 1000 MHz, and l have to keep putting at back at 1300, but the actually app shows 1300. Is this normal?

Thanks guys!

What file(s) can I view to see my stock voltages? I know these numbers have been posted here, but when I use this app to view my after reboot (back to stock cpu/voltages) they're different than the number posted here. So I want to know what system files or other application will tell me what my actual numbers are. Also, the "back to stock" voltages used in this app - Droid Overclock are different than the "back to stock" voltages used in DX/D2 Overclocker. Which on has the REAL back to stock numbers?

1.25 gHz at medium voltage and very stable here. It takes some trial and error at finding the right setting, though.

Press the menu hard key then go to device selection then autodetect speeds. Select yes and yes then move the sliders back and forth once to where you want them. Then it'll show on the widget.

what apps are y'all using for stress test. I haven't noticed any reboots or freezes at ulv 1.15 GHz and want to see if it's okay to set at boot. BTW I have even tried lv at 1.35 GHz without noticing anything except the battery gets freakin hot.

11-28-2010, 06:35 PM
I haven't seen this posted yet, when I try to select ulv it says "may lead to some serious bootloops", that only applies if I set changes at boot correct? and of course if the settings make the phone unstable

Read this thread and am wondering if this does work or is a placebo. Doesn't sound like anyone has noticed any battery difference, or it has been worse and despite better quadrant scores, only read 2 people claim web browsing is faster. Not exactly the definitive response I was hoping to read. It may give it a shot for $1.50 however has anyone does any real testing over a couple days? Meaning they actually kept track of battery times and time for apps to load (the app itself or to run specific task)? I was hoping for numbers as I find when I read "feels/seems" before any benefit or "snappier/quicker" instead of number of seconds it may be the placebo affect. Especially as I read testing for some people means an hour and other 24. Not trying to instigate anything, just was hoping for some statistical feedback so as a group we can see what measurable benefit this apps gives us.

That's what I would lime to do. But I want to know what my base voltages are w/o the trial and error bs.

I just got my DX 4 days ago and I was very interested in overclocking, however, I do not posses a lot of the hardware knowledge to do it correctly. Instead of DX/D2 - which I thought was going to rock - I used "Droid Overclock", apparently made by the same guy JRummy16 (unless I'm an idiot) either way this app has so many options and got me overclocked me stable to 1.35 right away (which DX/D2 was crashing) and I'm pretty sure I can go higher if I wanted to go Low Voltage. It has tons of extras like a cache cleaner, a command that sets all cache from apps and installation directories right to your SD card and a great ad remover... In my opinion, even though I have only had my DX 4 days, this app friggin' rocks. Saved me a ton of time and resources on my phone - quadrant score of 1712.

12-28-2010, 07:55 PM
im about to install the droid overclocker by jrummy, but before i do i have a few questions. what does the quadrant score mean?
and the main idea here is to increase ghz and decrease voltage to make the phone faster but use less or the same battery life as before, correct? it sounds simple but i know im going to run into trouble becuz i dont understand what some of these numbers you guys are talking about.......
.....like this:
1.200 54 almost tweaked
800 37 as low as it goes
600 31 haven't messed with it yet
300 14 I might could go lower. still tweaking

1200 is oc speed and the other number is vsel which is voltage. Not all phones can achieve the same numbers. Play around with the app. If your too high the phone will freeze/reboot. Find a sweet spot. Read rooolerxx guide to overclocking in hacking help guides.
