All steps undervolted about 25%. Should be stable still
The table is currently 300, 600, 950mhz until I can make it scale more than 3 steps.
The voltage for 950Mhz is less than at stock for 800Mhz, so you should see better battery life even though we're overclocked.
Display flicker fixed (or at least toned down, it can't be completely eliminated with the LED backlighting)
Scheduler tweaks backported from later kernel versions
Some governor tweaks of my own for responsiveness
To install this, just flash the zip in ClockworkMod. This shouldn't harm your device, but I make no promises. I trust it enough to run it on my device, if that means anything to y'all. I also attached a zip to flash back to the stock kernel (..but why would you break my heart by doing so..? ;P).
I REALLY want to get 1Ghz+ working, and my code is sound (I'm sure of that) but it won't boot on my device. I think I just need to find the right voltage, or I could have a bad die for OC'ing. This is the first thing I will work on.
I will not flat out ask for donations, however I do appreciate them. So if you're feeling generous or appreciate my work then it would help me out a lot if you could donate. I have my game Reflex-A-Tron on the Market for $1 if you'd like to donate like that, or there is a link under my name on the left side to donate, and one in my signature. The one on the left and in my signature is to donate via PayPal. Any amount is appreciated, but please don't feel obligated.
You can contact me here via PM, on Twitter @geniusdog254, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Email or Twitter is the preferred method, because I really despise the XDA PM system.
Disclaimer: If this breaks your Nook, kills your family/pets, or starts global thermonuclear war, do not blame me. You have been warned. If you break your device and blame me, I will point at you and laugh.
Overclock to 950Mhz. Still chokes at 1Ghz, which tells me it's probably my device. 950 is stable.
Temp sensor drivers. Thanks to the Nookie FroYo guys!
Updated to 126.96.36.199.
Scheduling tweaks from 2.6.31.
Code idle time from 2.6.34.
Scaling fixed. Now scales properly between all 3 CPU levels. Adding more than 3 makes it choke for some reason. I'll look into it.
Test version set at 1Ghz added. Just because it doesn't work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you. Don't get your hopes up though, I've tried making it work every way from Sunday
Screen WILL be unresponsive immediately after a boot. Just lock the device for several seconds, unlock it, and all will be fine until another reboot. I blame B&N, it happens with all custom kernels.
Yes, I know there are more versions of this kernel than there are Windows Vista. The middle one is the recommended one. If your Nook can't run at 950Mhz (crashing often, or just won't boot) try the one with the 900mhz tag. If you wanna try and push it higher, try the 1Ghz one. Be warned: very little success is reported with the 1Ghz kernel. The top level of these chips seems to be right around ~925-975Mhz. Very few devices will be able to hit 1Ghz.
You should probably wipe your cache partition after flashing this. You won't lose anything, and many people are reporting that it makes things more stable at the higher freqs for them.
I loaded up the new kernel via Clockwork and all went smoothly with the install. I noticed immediately that my touch sensitivity has decreased. I now have to press and hold just about as long as you would press and hold to bring up a context menu or something. If I don't do that, my touch is ignored and not registered.
Interestingly enough, when I type an email on the keyboard, it recognizes my typing very quickly. No apparent loss of sensitivity when I'm using the keyboard. I wonder why and how that is???
I guess I need to recalibrate the screen again to regain sensitivity.
I did notice that Castle Crashers frame-rate has improved a good bit with the overclock. It's a noticeable and welcome difference.
Angry birds was a bit annoying to play with the loss of screen sensitivity.
Edit: I alleviated the loss of touch sensitivity by installing the LCDDensity app from the Android Marketplace and selecting a density of 200.
