overclocked kernels for a stock rom
I just rooted my friends droid, first thing he wanted to do was overclock. so I searched for overcloked kernels and found some kernels by Chevy.
When I booted up his phone with the kernel it just gave him a red LED and shut down his phone, even though it was charged 100%
So I did a nandroid restore and now I can't seem to find any good kernels?!
Does anyone have a kernel that would work with a stock Rom that gets 800mhz or more?
Thanks for the help

Flash CyanogenMod 6.1.2 you can get it through Rom Manager from the market...I'm pretty sure that ROM/kernel is oc'd to 800Mhz. Or if he wants to keep it all stock and OC just buy SetCPU from the market, if I'm correct it's only like $2. Those Chevy kernels are prolly OC'd to 1.1 or 1.2 Ghz and he probably got the red led because his processor couldn't handle that much...some can but not all.

Is that a normal reaction for a droid to have when it is overclocked past its limits? Red LED and it thinks the battery is dead?
I know when my Incredible cant handle the OC it will reboot, and possibly go into a boot loop, never had it think the battery was dead.
Also, what do you all suggest i use as a recovery on his droid?
I have clockworkmod running on it but it will only work once or twice before the standard recovery (triangle w/ exclamation mark) comes back. does SP recovery stick better than clockwork?

Well I am on the stock FRG83D and have been using P3Droid's LV 1ghz kernel. It has been working great, fast performance, and I haven't had an ill effect on battery life after setting up some profiles in SetCPU. Same thing happened to me when I tried to use Chevy's kernels too. Here is the download link for P3Droid's kernels too.
Hope I could help.
