Motorola Droid X :: Using DX / D2 Overclock Application
Nov 14, 2010
I am Using the DX/D2 overclock app and have it set to do stock with low voltage and I have to same my battery life has been way better, the only concern I have is if I am doing any damage to my phone or battery with those settings.
I am running stock 2.1. I do not want to downgrade and root. But, i would like to overclock. People say this is possible and to just find the app on the market. All the overclock apps i have found show that it MUST be root. Can anyone provide a link to an app that will do this? Or even the title of an app that can do this WITHOUT root?
We already know that the Droid X and the Droid 2 can be overclocked, but did you know that it could be overclocked... to 2 GHz? Matt4542 and Joe - members of Team DeFuse (get it? eFuse? DeFuse?) - have taken it upon themselves to crank this thing up to 2000 MHz using setCPU, their [...]
I have not really found any threads in these forums deticated just to overclocking the Droid. I am running BB v.9 and would like to overclock past 600 mhz. I have 2 overclocking utilities. (Setcpu, and overclock widget) I understand that I have to update or flash the Kernel. I tried doing this OverClocking Motorola Droid To 1.3 GHz In 7 Easy Steps | areacellphone.com
The adb commands were successfull. WHen I rebooted my droid it was bricked (well not really cause I did a Nandroid backup right before I did this) It was just frozen with the white Motorola logo. Perhaps I downloaded a bad 800 mhz evilboot8.img.
I just overclocked to 1.2 on cynagoen 5.062, I have overclock widget installed on my phone. Whenever I check it, the widget shows the phone is at 550, unless I manually move the slider to 1200. Does this mean my phone's not really running at 1.2, or am I misunderstanding how the overclock process works? Also, is there a way to do some sort of speed test? (I don't have set cpu and I can't buy apps at the moment) I do know when i move my slider to 1200 the web seems a lot faster, but whether thats real or placebo is beyond me.
Droid X successfully overclocked - Page 6 - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum. The file is attached to the bottom of his post, and I will attach it here as well. unzip the files and put them both on your sdcard, then run the following in adb or terminal emulator: Code:.......
So are all Droid X able to overclock to 1450 GHZ or at least 1250 GHZ? My phone only seems to go up to 1100 GHZ, after that it just reboots only lasts about 3 seconds after the overclock and BAM reboot. So is my phone just not capable of it or am i doing something wrong? Im running FISSION v1.2 if that matters, i got the build props from the rom manager app.
Can someone walk me through how to overclock my droid to 1Ghz. I am rooted, but I have never had to use the adb. Can someone walk me through this process. Can I just issue the necessary commands from my terminal emulator?
I've been using ApeX overclocked. But I can't really tell all that much of a difference. It seems to run the same when it's clocked @ stock. Is it just me? Please discuss your experiences and any differences you feel with your phone resulting from overclocking and what you're overclocked at.
So i tried the next step on my agenda, which was to find an overclock kernel for Froyo 2.2. Ive tried a handful of ChevyNo1 kernels, and a couple from jdlfg and none of them seem to take. The speed scale in SetCPU remains at a max of 600mHz, while Overclock widget shows me a possible max of 900mHz. Even if i try to set the max at 900mHz in Overclock widget, the widget never actually reads that high and SetCPU never reflects that speed either.
I can confirm that I have root, and both SetCPU and Overclock Widget are being given superuser permissions.
Warning, this process may cause our phone to become unstable if you clock it at the wrong speed. I advise that you do not continue onto steps 2 and 3 until you find the settings that work for YOUR phone best.
All credit goes to Fab for his how-to post, Elkay for the original mod of the milestone overclock and to Hilbe for his install-recovery.sh and setscaling.sh files as well as figuring out where to add on these commands. And also Airmaxx23 for helping me refine the commands. As well as FreeWELL for his Root Explorer guide and his stop overclocking commands

First, things first download the attachment at the bottom of this post Now on to how to overclock that survives a reboot, 1. First follow Fabolous's guide to overclocking, http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid-x/145209-how-overclock-your-droid-x.html Here is his OP, also the overclock.ko and overclock.sh files are both in the attached Zip file at the bottom.
Any D1 using this app? Seems like you can set the speed anywhere from 250Mhz to 1Ghz and you can also tell it have different range when screen is off. Is this accurate and how does this compare to SetCPU? OverclockWidget (Need Root)
So I'm using jRummy's over/underclock app in conjunction with setcpu. Anyone know what the best settings are to increase battery life? Phone is fast enough so I'm not too worried about going under 1ghz.
I was wondering how they actually reach their max speed? If you have a kernal that has 250, 600, 800, 1000, 1200. Does it start at 250 then go 600, 800, 1000, then finally hit 1200? Or does it jump to the necessary speed that your using (like start at 250 then it could go to 1000 then 1200)? Because if it has to go through each speed to get to its max, then a kernal with 5 different ones would be much better than 10 wouldn't it? I've never seen this question asked before, so does anyone know how they actually get up to their max?
Just so everyone knows I'm rooted and running overclock of 1200.. I have it set up. Just want to know how it works.
I am currently running the alldroid community beta rom at 950 mhz. How can I up it to 1.1 or 1.3 ghz? I do not know how to access adb. I downloaded the android adk but now I am lost. I am also running an older recovery, not the newer 0.99.3 one, I think its 0.10.5. I have tazs 1300 kernel download but now I don't know how to implement it. Can I use terminal emulator for this?
I'm having a bit of trouble with overclocking. I'm running Fission 2.1, no theme at the moment. I tried using the built-in overclocking zip files but they made my phone extremely slow and very unstable. After that I downloaded Jrummy's Overclocking app. I can only get up to 1.15Ghz on all four voltage settings before my phone craps out on me. I've tried going higher on different voltage settings but to no avail. What am I doing wrong?
