    I have finally got a custom rom on my phone and I'm ready to overclock/undervolt. I know safest overclock is about 806 mhz I heard. But what is saftest undervolt?

    600 max isn't an overclock.

    806 is a decent guideline. Elias, what you should do is, in your overclock settings, set your minimum to 480. Anything below this will just end up eating more battery than necessary. This is due to the processor using the same voltage at any frequency below 480mhz, therefore requiring more power to ramp back up when you use the phone.

    As far as your maximum, set your governer to Performance. This will cause the phone to use the max speed all the time. Set your max a step above 600, and open your camera. If it doesn't crash, or reboot, do it again, this time increasing your max one more time. This will help you to determine what your stable maximum is for your phone. Now, once you hit a frequency that crashes the camera, when the phone reboots, set your maximum to one or two notches BELOW where the camera crashed. Set your governor to whatever you'd like, I recommend InteractiveX or SmartassV2. Check the 'Set On Boot' option.

    Enjoy!

    also, undervolting is not possible on our phones yet

    Where there any previous attempts at undervolting.

    I believe so. I'm not 100% sure.

    Wow so I did what you said cole and I'm safe all the way to 864 mhz (which is the max mirage goes too). But I'm not too sure if I should use it because if I run it for too long on 864 will it mess up any hardware?

    Let me just say this, when I first started overclocking and running custom Gingerbread ROMs...I --used-- to be able to go to 864. I'm lucky if I can hit 825 now.

    [HL]I do not recommend running at your maximum possible speed.[/HL] You may still experience instability down the line. I'd stick at 806, maybe 825, but would never advise staying at 864.

    I though so. I'm just going to stay at 806 that's all I need anyways.

    Why would you want to undervolt? 600mhz isn't the greatest processor speed.

    To save batter obviously. When I'm not using it my battery still drains like hell with its 6 hour battery life.

    Believe it or not, overclock helps your battery life on this phone. I don't know all about it but leslieann does. Overclock and undervolt are two different things also.

    Oddly enough, I can too. I actually OC 600/825/InteractiveX (just switched it to SmartassV2, will see how that goes) on a daily basis, using a BACKside rom. I do have one of the phones with the older screens.

    There's some interesting back and forth on the Mirage thread between mrg666 and danemand (sp?) exploring the efficacy of different governors. Worth hunting down the posts for some additional insight. They did some decent real world tests and shared their results.

    806mhz has been reported as the best over-clock for this phone on multiple Android boards. It seems to be the most stable, doesn't cause a lot of heat, and it doesn't require extra voltage.

    My phone has been at 806 for 4 months now, and its running fine .

    Some peoples phones can't handle 768.
