I Have the MeanBean and when I overclock and undervolt it works ok for a wile but after about 2 or 3 hours it will reboot untill I have rebooted it myself then its ok for a wile. I have tried to run as normal volt with overclock and same thing happens but if I overvolt and overclock to the 1.7 it runs ok. When I was on meanbean 2.8 the overclock was built into the rom. can someone tell me why this is and what I can do to get it stable and how far I can go with the overclock and voltage.

It's actually varies, some phones can't oc at all, some can only to 1.8 and some can go all the way to 2.1. Same goes for voltage. It's best to see how your phone reacts to each. So if 1.7 works for you then that might be your phones limit.

Each phone is different. Some phones handle overclocking/underclocking and over/undervolting better than others. What works for one may not work for the other. Find the setup that best suits your needs and stick with it.

will this all change with the rom that I am using or is this all just in the phone? when I was on meanROM it was overclocked to 1.890 and it ran great, now I am not sure if I can get back to that or not. not tried it yet, going to see what happens after a day or two then try going up from there.

Well it could be the kernel used for now. Since htc has not released source, mean bean is using a hacked stock kernel. When you were on mean rom the oc and and voltage tables where written into the actual kernel source. Until htc releases the source that can not be done.

Re: [Q] undervolt and overvolt?
I think some of the variables affecting how the phone runs has to do not only with the phone itself but the ROM, also. When I was on ICS I ran Viper4G with a custom kernel OC'd to 1.9 and my phone ran without a hitch. I haven't been able to do the same since I've been on JB. Having said that, keep in mind that the kernel source for JB hasn't been released yet (as stated above). Once the source drops you'll see improvements in the kernels and how the phone runs overall

and as we all know there is no telling when they will release that code. Thank you for the quick answers. I will see what happens in the next day or two.
