Rooted and Overclocked, AMAZING!
I'm not 100% sure I should post this in this forum but I had to share my experience with my fellow Droid users.
So I recently rooted and overclocked my Droid to 800MHZ and it is THE best thing I've done with my Droid. FINALLY it performs the way it should. It was super easy:
1) Download SholesMod Updater from the Market - This simple app roots the phone for you, all you have to do is download it, click a few things, wait for everything to download and you're good to go. Obviously, this also install the Sholes rom, which adds multi-touch to Google Maps, the Browser, and the Gallery. Plus it adds the new launcher and new Gallery, it's AWESOME! Additionally, it comes with some skins, I'm using something with "cloud" or "smoke" in the name, it gives a translucent black notification panel and looks amazing.
2) Download SetCPU for Root Users from the Market - Now that you're rooted, this application will allow you to overclock your CPU up to 1GHZ, but I've found 800MHZ to sufficiently fast and 100% stable so far (after 4 days). When you open this app and choose your device, select "Auto-Detect" instead of "Droid", otherwise it will max out at 550MHZ.
In addition to these two things, I also installed Home++ which, after using approximately 5 home replacements, I can say is the fastest and cleanest and best overall.
After doing these things my Droid HAULS ***! I can have Handscent open, tap home, tap browser, tap home, pull down the notification panel, close it, tap on handscent again all in like 3 seconds, everything just opens RIGHT when you tell it too. I haven't waited for an app to open since I did this, I'm so pumped!
Try it, enjoy it, you're welcome.
