Default Overclocking Tattoo

Just recently I rooted and flashed a MoDaCo Custom ROM. Excited to take advantage of my new powers, I downloaded the OverclockWidget to see what I can squeeze out of my phone's Qualcomm MSM 7225 heart.

Fresh after installation. The "Min" and "Max" CPU speed bars in the widget only go up to 512MHz which is the actual speed it's ticking away at.

Going into "Advanced Settings" of the widget I defined "my own" frequencies, I checked the box to "Use your frequencies" and then tried to set the Min / Max values to something higher. I granted the super user access each time I was setting it, but the speed displayed on the widget never actually went above 512... what's even stranger - I could see the Min / Max values being set to something completely different (lower) than what I set it to in the first place.

Another thing I notices is that the "Detect frequencies" option doesn't seem to be doing anything. As in, I click it - and nothing happens.

Does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong, or missing something? I would really like to get this going, so any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

So it looks like there are no ROMs currently available that have this perflock disabled?

According to my experience with HTC Magic using PERFCLOCK settings actually performs better than adjusting cpu clock with an app.

You CAN indeed change screen-on and scree-off frequencies but you need to do it at the kernel level.
