setCPU and other overclocking apps on new 3.3.6 kenel
Since detule has pushed in patches that require an app to overclock now instead of inserting the appropriate lines in the startup.txt file, I am looking to get a better understanding of what exactly the line in the startup.txt file did and how to achieve similar settings in an app like setCPU.
I have setCPU, and set it up to run the default program at 710MHz both the Max and the Min. I am not really interested in battery saving features of the program or anything else. I just want it to run at 710MHz all the time. I thought it pretty much did this when using the startup.txt command set to 710400.
My question is, am I correct that if I set it up setCPU that way is that mirroring what the command did or am I going to get worse battery life then I did before because the app does something different?
I know the phone still sleeps with the app set that way. What happens in sleep with both the startup.txt command or this app? Does Android knock the processor down when going into sleep by either method or both?
