    Default Any Noticeable Difference Overclocking to 1.4 gHz

    Any Noticeable Difference Overclocking to 1.4 ghz along with undervolting?

    Could you give an example (if any)?

    Thanks

    I would only go 1.2 ghz so its stable and not a battery drain

    My TB transitions smoother and is generally snappier. Battery life doesn't seem to be affected much, meaning it does not appear to suffer from the overclocking. I have had no issues except some force closing when I first open Google search, but this may not be caused by the overclock/undervolt. Currently running BAMF Forever 1.07.

    But would I even notice a difference? If so what?

    When I had cm7 I would over clock to 1.4. I did not notice any difference using the phone. It did not seem faster. So I've gone back to 1.0.

    Would you notice? Maybe, just depends how close you pay attention. I just went back down to 1ghz to see if I could squeeze out a bit more battery. I'm not doing physics on my phone or anything, so it's not generally noticeable.

    I have noticed a difference. Everything seems faster and more fluid. I'm using the IMO 4.14 kernel and used the built-in script to overclock to 1.4Ghz and undervolt. Try it, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    Yeah, since I didn't notice a difference I went back to 1.0 hoping it would help with battery life.

    Is there a way to save the stock kernel so I can revert if I don't like the imo kernel I try?
    Can I use his lean kernel while stock rooted?
    I'm hoping it helps with my keyboard lag.

    +1 on this question. or is there a place to download just the stock kernel, or the BAMF Forever kernel?

    IMO used to have the stock kernel listed on his threads, but apparently he has removed them. Version 5.0 is based on the stock kernel (the source code having recently been released). Adr also has a new kernel based on the source code. Forever already uses the stock kernel. I'm sure you could find the stock kernel with a bit of looking, but flashing (or re flashing)a forever ROM will give you the stock kernel.

    if no one posts the stock kernel, you could flash the rom again without clearing data (you should probably clear the caches tho) and it will put you back on the stock kernel.

    I know that but it requires a wipe. I don't think we'd need to wipe data to flash a new kernel by itself?

    you don't need to wipe data, just the caches. you won't lose anything by doing so.

    Simply enough, just make a nand backup from CWR. That also backs up the current kernel version.

    I only want the kernel, not the whole rom. It takes forever to restore a nandroid of an entire rom or even to flash a new rom (and sometimes you do have to wipe data to change roms depending onnwhich rom you're coming from and which rom you're going to).

    right, but you can flash bamf (since it doesn't wipe on the install) again without losing any of your data. you wouldn't need to wipe since you aren't changing ROMs. it's a whole lot faster than restoring a nandroid backup.

    I understand. I'm still surprised stock kernel isn't out there - especially since htc has released it.

    Hmmm...It used to up on imoseyon's page for the GB Sense kernel, but I don't see it anymore.

    I recommend making a Nandroid backup regardless, and you can always use that to go back to stock if you don't like a particular kernel.

    EDIT: I'm a moron who didn't see the whole second page of this thread...sorry for the repeated info!

    To the OP: I generally find that the transitions and such are faster/smoother with the CPU OC'd to 1.2 or 1.4. Most custom kernels will also undervolt a bit, to prevent the faster CPU speeds from causing increased battery drain.

    I don't know if imo's new lean kernel based on the recently released htc kernel allows use of terminal to set overclocking?

    Yes, it works. I just did it last night using Terminal.

    I'm diggin' it so far. It definitely has better performance, things open faster and are smoother. I'm calibrating the battery now so I'm hoping for noticeable results in battery life. I'm running it on extreme (extremely undervolted, overclocked to 1.41Ghz) and using smartassV2 governor. So far I'm at 80% after 5hrs 22mins (1st battery cycle still) normal usage at home using WiFi (bad cell signal at home).

    I'd liie to try it but I thought I'd wait for the next version. Version 2 of anything is usually better.
