HOW TO KEEP SETTINGS AFTER REBOOT:

If you dont like to set the CPU frequency after each reboot you can add following lines to /system/bin/mot_boot_mode
This only works if this file is NOT in binary mode

Code:
#
insmod /data/data/pt.com.darksun.milestoneoverclock/files/overclock.ko
echo 68 > /proc/overclock/max_vsel
echo 800000 > /proc/overclock/max_rate
If your file is in binary mode (not cleartext):
ONLY IF YOU DONT HAVE MEMHACK OR APPS2SD!!!!

1. rename original mot_boot_mode to mot_boot_mode.bin but leave it in the same directory
2. copy my mot_boot_mode (without extension) to the same directory
3. set permissions of BOTH files to 755 (rwx r-x r-x)

I just overclocked my Milestone...

UK 2.1 ROM (SHOLS_U2_02.31.0)
Obviously Rooted
Apps2SD installed (1gb Ext2 Part) on my 8gb Class4 card

Tried overclocking upto 1200Mhz. All worked, but have decided to scale it back a bit to 800Mhz for daily use.

Also running SetCPU with profiles set.

Benchmarked with Linpack @ 800Mhz (MFLOPS: 6.506; Time 0.83sec)

Looks good so far.

I will now try to install JIT.

Hi, I'm a complete noob with Android (and next to no knowledge in Linux).
I've rooted my Milestone successfully and upgraded to the stock 2.1 version but have no knowledge of the internals, so i'm very cautious with modifying system files.

I've opened /system/bin/mot_boot_mode in text editor and saw a lot of giberish, so I assume it is in Binary mode?
How do I know for sure? If it is in Binary mode, can I change it?

Appreciate your help!

Cheers

Tai

ok there is a way to get it working in binary mode but DONT change the content of your file, thats very important.
ONLY IF YOU DONT HAVE MEMHACK OR APPS2SD!!!!

1. rename original mot_boot_mode to mot_boot_mode.bin but leave it in the same directory
2. copy my mot_boot_mode (without extension) to the same directory

I tried something similar with mot_boot_mode and it didn't kick in on the first boot. I replaced insmod with /system/bin/insmod just to see if that would make a difference. Then it worked on the next boot.

Warning: Make a nandroid backup before you try this, just to be sure... if you bugger up the boot files, it'll be your only way to restore.
