Cool [n00b] SETCPU bootloop cure -No need to Nandroid Restore-

Just sharing some info for noobs.


So you set your CPU to 1.22 Ghz and checked 'set at boot'. You enjoy your 10% speed increase until suddently you get a random reboot. You know it is because you set the CPU too high (for your phone, every phone is differnet) so you wait for it to reboot so you set it back but then BAM! another reboot. Now Sh!t hits the fan because of the 'set at boot' flag has been checked. You didn't do a nandroid backup recently or you don't have any set up. What to do??

I found this on android developers forum and thought I should share this in an OP because it's very valuable for us overclockers.

Basically, to remedy this, you need to delete the SetCPU config file from the internal memory. To do, follow this:

1) Boot into recovery
2) Connect USB
3) open ADB shell - 'adb shell'
4) mount the Data folder - 'mount /data'
5) navigate to the Data folder - 'cd /data/data'
6) Remove the config file - 'rm -r com.mhuang.overclocking'
7) exit and reboot phone

Now you should be all set. SetCPU is now in its default form.

Or, if easier, you can just pull the SD card, and put a text file named 'setcpu_safemode' in the root of the card, then reinsert and boot. The dev added that feature a while back.

Thanks man, first day owning my droid inc, and I'm a little too used to cranking my old moto droid up all the way without consequence. I don't even need the little scosh of a speed boost I'm just always effing with things. Oh well lesson learned, no harm no foul.

Don't blame SetCPU for the fact that you didn't know what you were doing. That's not the app's fault, it's yours.

Ok, played with setcpu today, for the first time, and after awhile set the orevclock to max and now the phone reboots everytime I try to open anything. I found this thread and put the .txt file on my sd's root, but it didnt help. I am using amon_ra and cant figure out how to try the other method with it. Can someone please help me out.


Update, I made another .txt file and this one seemed to work, but I now see there is a flashable .zip you can extract in setcpu itself.
Sent from my Evo 4g, rooted with the Rev. tool.....
