    Overclocking stock Droid X Kernel

    Hey whats going on guys? I'm new to the forums. I plan on being a regular member and contributing as much information as possible.

    I just recently traded my Fascinate for a HTC Incredible, then traded to a Droid X.

    So, I'm really digging this DX, seems awesome so far. (Way better than rooted Incredible...)

    My questions is:

    Using the Droid Overclock app from the Market, and going into:

    Set scaling frequencies > Low Voltage > 1.25GHz, 1.0GHz, 800GHz, 400GHz

    Safe overclock? Is this really overclocking the stock kernel?

    Also is this going to cause any problems, or help performance?

    Noticeable gains in speed!, also Quadrant scores went through the roof from what they were completly stock.

    Should I go with Low Voltage, or Medium Voltage? I have read that every phone reacts different, and you need to experiment. I'm just merely asking for your professional, and personal opinions based off your experiances.

    Thank you

    -ChadDX

    its just about experimenting, just dont set at boot until you ARE SURE its a good setting. a reboot will go back to stock speeds since ur running a script to OC.

    yup. so play around with the settings til u find a good speed for ur processor. also, i suggest quickclock advanced. itll help u find appropriate speeds, voltages. and the dev is an active member on here.

    Thanks. I appreciate it. So don't set boot until I back up and feel comfortable.

    its not a predefined one but its probably close to 70% of the stock ones. but every processor is different.

    Oh okay. So I should stick to medium voltage just to be safe until I find a good speed and set boot?

    well if you plan on sticking to med voltage, yes. but changing the voltage will also affect the stability so you gotta play with them both at the same time.
