Oh man, I envy you. I can't wait to see that!

Alright, after flashing this new modem, i'm starting to look into overclocking. I'm not sure if our phone can play GTA3 lag free.(or close to it) But, I would like to try. I keep seeing stuff about "Tegrak." Would that be benificial to me? I also read something about Antonx's OC/UV kernel, and where would I find that, and would it benefit me? Or should i just keep using the kernel i got with the rom?

Sorry for the Q's. Don't bother answering, Erik, until you've made it back home. And you gotta let me know how the film was! THOOOORRR!!!!!!

I flash a modem the same way as roms and kernels? Just boot into recovery, install zip?

Just did the quadrant test thing, and my score is 1783. Is that good?

Total: 1783
CPU: 1441
Mem: 1849
I/O: 3402
2D: 338
3D: 1884


The lower the score, the better, or is it the higher, the better?

Can I OC using this guide, following it step by step?
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ight=overclock

Is my rom, valblack final, compatible with drhonks bali 3.0, or 3.1? How do I find niche info like this without bugging the wise folks here? I try search a lot, but it's hard. Try it yourself sometime, it's not as easy as the veterans here think. Some things are, but other stuff is still really hard to find. I've been reading thread after thread, after thread since I joined. I love it. I think i'm finally going to get the xda app.

Those two posts will get you setup with a stable kernel and oc/uv settings.

Yeah, sorry. I got it and it's all done. It did exactly what I needed.

However, Looking through the two links above, and having been reading this forum for the past 3 hours on overclocking... i'm more confused than when I began. I will lose features by flashing that kernel, but it will let me oc? Then i just use setCPU?
Will overclocking to 1.3 show a noticible improvement in gfx-intensive games, like gta3? I already have chainfire3d, with all plugins, and that helped a little. Still not perfect, and that's why i'm looking to oc.

From what I read, you oc, and make your battery life longer at the same time? Isn't that opposite of what's supposed to happen?

Is that guide the most most recommended way to OC with my set-up? will that kernel remove features I already have?
