sorry for multiple questions, but on the kernel post, theres a bunch of links, "flashable zip normal voltage, low voltage, 2.1 eclair, and then flashable zip 4g and wifi use with custom kernel, im confused on which one to pick (im on 2.1 eclair) and i want all feature (4g, wifi, and camera) to work
You might want to flash this kernel instead since its more recent [Kernel]netarchy-toastmod, FPS 'fix' for Epson + Nova, now with hdmi - Version 3.7.5 - xda-developers
If the kernel breaks anything, it will be listed in the kernel thread's first post. You don't need to wipe before installing any kernels. The kernel is "custom" so by definition it is not stock.

And let me add my thanks to the developer of this. My battery life is dramatically better. I've been having problems the last 2 days with auto-sync getting turned off, but I can't imagine that's because of this.

Ok, here's a question for the EE types out there (which I am not).
If you have a processor running at 1ghz and it completes a task in 1 second and then you underclock it to 250mhz and it completes the task in 4 seconds have you saved any power? I'm not sure if the power consumption curve is linear or not. I seem to recall way back in my brain that it is linear which would make me think that you would just be breaking even in the above scenario. I'm sure that there are a bunch of other factors that I have not taken into consideration here (like system overhead processing) but I'm just interested to figure out why the underclocking seems to work from a technical perspective. Can anyone shed any light on this?

I'm using the Incredible... and it all seems to work great... of course, I have no idea what I'm doing - so thanks to PPM for his great and simple guidance.
However, am I supposed to set the main screen max back to 998 after I have set the profiles, enabled the profiles and disabled the perflock?

An example of when the main screen actually does control the CPU is situations where the user does not have a profile set for a situation:
Screen off - min 245 max 245
Charging - min 998 max 998
You can see though that in the example I didn't have a profile setup for when the screen is on, and not on the charger. This is where whatever you set on the main screen now takes precedence. So in the example above, if i set my main screen at min 245 max 576, when the screen is on and not on the charger the CPU will max out at 576.
Keep up the great work. I love this thread.

Question for the OP..
Are you still getting what you consider better battery like with SetCPU after you updated to Froyo? Also, do you still run that Task Killer? Isn't it possible your improved battery life is due to the TK?
A better control would be to remove the TK, then to try the handset with/without SetCPU.
My experience is that SetCPU makes like or no difference to Froyo's sucky battery life. Froyo is noticeably worse than 2.1, at least for me.

I noticed that with the AC ROM you can go as low as 128mhz, but it causes some issues. Waking up was buggy, and getting phone calls when the screen was off was almost impossible. By the time it woke up enough to answer the call I missed the call. I stepped up to the next lowest (the one in the pictures from the OP) and I have had no issues at all.
