HOW TO: Charge your battery... quickly! (and one problem)
I am sure this has been posted but wanted to sort of let people who may be new (like me) know.
I have finally found a way to charge my battery relatively quickly.
1. Must be rooted
2. Must be on a proper plug in power source (computer USB doesnt work well)
3. Must not be streaming background audio.
1. Download SetCPU
2. Create a profile allowing your phone to underclock all the way down to a minimum 216mhz and max 316mhz when the screen is off.
3. Plug in and charge.
I have found I can jump 20-30% in as little as 30-45 minutes whereas before it took forever.
If there is a BETTER way to charge FAST please let me know.
My main problem now is a car charger/mount i have.
Running GPS and charging doesnt charge, just gets the battery all hot...
I am going to test whether or not it is actually DISCHARGING the battery while plugged in/screen on because i have a sinking suspicion this MAY be happening.
Anyone else have that problem?

Good to know, I'll try it next time I need a quick charge.
Liberty 3 -- too many roms too little time.
Android overclocking allows you to set profiles. I set mine to underclock when charging (power) and overclock (usb so it still performs well when I just need to connect it to the computer). and it charges insanely fast. Ill time it next time I have to charge.
Typed this all by myself like a big boy
I puts the Gingerbread on the Droid: Gingerdroid.
DX- Best use of 4.3"
I'm only able to select 312mhz for the max, and 216 for the min.

Right... these are correct. The min is 20x and max should be 312 I believe.
