You can change the scaling frequency on-the-fly, but you should patch (or disable) the power-hal: otherwise it will reset your settings. (power.c)

I suppose ADHD is based on a sense rom? In this case the reason why this rom seems to be slower is easy:
HTC is full of ****.
There is a funky library called `libhtc-opt2.so' used in sense roms (this rom also includes a copy of it, but it's not used and just there because nobody bothered to remove it) - running strings on the library gives some interesting results:
$ strings ./target/product/endeavoru/obj/PACKAGING/target_files_intermediates/tg_endeavoru-target_files-eng.adrian/SYSTEM/lib/libhtc-opt2.so | grep ^[a-z]
So what does the library do? It checks if any of the above applications is running (note that there are quite a few benchmark apps in the list!) and bumps the CPU to max speed.
Again: As soon as you start a benchmark APP, a sense based ROM will go into full-speed mode.
That's cheating and stupid. I hope the guy at HTC responsible for the 'optimization' got fired.
