    Now First you need to Root the phone

    either the Toast root method or the super easy unrevoked method unrevoked

    Now Download from the Market AutoKiller and Overclock Widget

    Now put the Overclock Widget on the Homescreen Click it then go to Advanced Setting

    On "Screen On Freq Setting change it to

    Min: 245000
    Max:998400

    Check Differ Freq Screen Off

    Now

    On "Screen Off Freq Setting

    change

    Min 245000
    Max 245000

    Then go down and check Supress Notification

    Then Check Auto Start on Boot

    and Save!!!

    Now go to AutoKiller and Put in Custom Settings of

    Hidden App 100
    Content Provider 110
    Empty App 120

    and Apply

    This has giving me WAY more battery life it pretty much uses none while the screen is off I unplugged my phone at 10 am and used it and at 2pm it barley went down!!

    I understand what the Overclock widget is doing and what those settings indicate. What do the numbers for the AutoKiller app mean?

    yeah, it would be good if you could explain what those numbers do.

    see this thread:

    Personally I don't think the app has any effect on the EVO's cpu frequency.

    That widget doesn't do anything more than what the phone does on it's own... Like I thought yesterday BS on that widget... If I see a thread about it again I'm going to get suspicious of a troll..

    What evidence do you have against the widget? I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    I know the theories are that this is already done by HTC.....but you can't deny people (including myself) who have tried this and experienced little to no battery usage when the screen is off, even after 5+ hours.

    because we have monitored the cpu freq with System Panel app, and there is no change no matter whether you force it to min or max speeds.

    Read this post and install the app for yourself.. The phone scales on it's own..I'm not trying to come off as combative..sorry if it's sounding that way.. If this program works for you go for it. I don't see any benefit from it.. Just a little frustrated with battery life here. I don't run anything pulling gobs of data... gmail, exchange account, gtalk and the weather widget pulling every 3 hours.. been lucky to get through a full day yet.. signal strength is full bars (we have a booster at work) beginning to think I might have a bad battery..
