Motorola Droid :: Overclock Rooted BB V.9 - Frozen With White Motorola Logo
Apr 28, 2010
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 picked up a brand new Droid X, turned it on, got it all setup, and it downloaded my apps that I used to have on my old Droid. Then I rebooted it after all the apps were installed and updated, and now it will not move past the Motorola logo screen.
Searching around the internet I have found others that ran into this issue, but they were always rooting their phones. I also am not able to boot into recovery mode.
I have not rooted it, attempted to root it, or done anything other than as described above.
Is there anything I can do? Or do I have to just head back to Best Buy and demand a replacement unit?
I have a Motorola XOOM WIFI US version (don't remember exactly the Android version, but it's 3 point something). It was rooted and unlocked, but I decided to relock it, so I followed a tutorial to do it.
Everything worked fine and, despite the long process and the several steps, I didn't have any problems at all, but when I finished flashing the images from the usb, the tablet automatically rebooted and now it's stuck at the boot screen, with the Motorola logo.
I have read some topics with the same issue and I always see the same solution: go into the recovery mode, but the problem is that I can't even access the recovery mode. When I push the vol + button to select the "recovery" option, I just got a message "Reading ODM fuse: 1", and there's nothing else I can do. I can't even shut the tablet down.
I just picked up my first X tonight. I got home and an update notification popped up to update my phone. I said yes. Now i can get the phone to get off a black screen w/ a while moto symbol. I have done a battery pull too. no luck.
This is to change the motorola logo that you see when you boot your phone to a custom image. This is separate from the boot animation seen afterwards.Tools/files you will need: 1) RSD Lite 2) droid sbf 3) SBFCodec 4) Photoshop (or paint, or whatever drawing program) 5) Hex editor (frhed is free and very easy to use) NOTE: I do not use sbf-recall because it complains about needing version 1.3, so I use SBFCodec instead.Steps: 1) Run SBFCodec and open up the sbf file. This will extract all the smg files and header files. 2) Using photoshop, create an image that is 480 pixels wide and 182 pixels tall. Each color should be assigned 8 bits (1 byte), or in paint, just make a 24 bit bmp file. Mirror the image, making the left become the right, and the right becoming the left. Save as a bmp file (photoshop method). 3) Using a hex editor, open up your image and erase the first 54 bytes of data. (and possibly the last 2 bytes of data if you used photoshop. the number of bytes remaining should be exactly 262,080) With the remaining data, reverse the bytes. (using frhed, the option is in the edit menu->Reverse bytes) 4) Using a hex editor, open up the CG42.smg file created in step 1 and erase all data except the last 64 bytes of data (these 64 bytes of data should be FF's in the file). Then paste in the remaining data from step 3 to the beginning of the file and save. Your final file should be exactly 262,144 bytes large. 5) Go back to the SBFCodec window and save (this creates the sbf) the sbf file and name it whatever you want. i.e. boot.sbf 6) Using RSD Lite, flash this sbf to your phone. It may take 5-10 minutes for the flashing to complete. (after the 10 minutes, it might say "failed", just click on the show device button once that happens and you'll have succeeded)You now have a stock phone with a custom boot image. Go ahead and root your phone and stuff. Sorry for the difficult instructions, this was the only approach I could think of to edit the boot logo.
I installed a custom bootlogo a while back, but my phone is giving me hardware trouble (keyboard and audio jack) so I will have to eventually have it replaced.I was wondering if anyone had the original "M" bootlogo, or could direct me to where I can find it.
I have a Droid 2 and just a little while ago it powered off and now when I turn it on, all i get is Motorola logo on the screen and it wont do anything else. I have done the hard reset and it didn't fix anything.
Any ideas on what to do other than take it back to Verizon tomorrow?
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 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 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.
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?
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.
