[Q] Anyone else overheated their phones?
I've had an interesting experience with my x10 mini pro today. After unlocking (from keypad lock) the phone it suddenly vibrated frantically and the led blinked angry red (or is it orange?) alarmingly. When I checked that status bar it says something about the temperature is above 50% and I need to do something. I quickly lowered the setCPU to around 245700 min and 300000 max but it still vibrated alarmingly. I managed to remove the alarm by killing apps through advance task killer.
My default cpu speed is 300000 min and 600000 max on demand and 245k min and 32-k max when screen is off. I don't know why it suddenly heated like that (atleast the phone says it is. I touched the battery and it was as cool as normal). Is there any danger of frying my phone's chips with this value? I dunno if I'm an overclock junkie but I think my value is pretty much normal. I have heard of someone's WiMo (I think that's the host of Linux Action Show! I'm not sure) that his overclocked phone gets so hot but still works, although for just few hours before the battery gets drained. Have anyone seen a phone get fried because of overclocking firsthand?
BTW, I leave my phone USB-connected to my PC almost 8 hours everyday. Is this dangerous? I notice it stops charging when it gets full (the battery with lightning icon is gone) so I assume it's no problem. I hope I'm not wrong.
I hope someone can provide me (or if somebody else experienced it) with answers.
