Update to the universal overclock. I've tested it working on several ROMS... seems to be better than my first one. Based off dumfuq's latest OC kernel for CM5 which is based off the latest cyanogenmod. Instructions are the same as below. Let's set some G1s on fire!


EDIT WIFI FIXED NOW
UNIVERSAL OVERCLOCK VERSION 2.01 WIFI FIXED

This can be flashed right over what you have now
EDIT IT DOES WORK ON 1.5-1.6 ROMS !!!!!

Below you'll find a link to an overclock update.zip ... all you have to do is flash it, regardless of your ROM and use set cpu to tweak your settings. It will allow you to clock the CPU up to 825mhz!!! Anything over 768mhz locks up the phone so you may want to set a max value via userinit.sh. 652mhz seems to be stable for me

WARNING: Overclocking can shorten battery life and kill the PROC on your phone. I'm in no way responsible for your phone getting hotter than the sun and exploding.

NANDROID BEFORE FLASHING THIS
I'm not a DEV... i just like to tinker. All I did was notice this and throw it all together--------CREDIT GOES TO Dumfuq, Koush and Pershoot for making this possible

Instructions:
----------------------
INSTRUCTIONS HAVE BEEN CHANGED
*Download and install setcpu.
*Select auto detect (ensure it is set at 528mhz) make sure "set on boot" and "ondemand" are selected
*Download and flash THIS update.zip up to 652mhz Stable or this stable 576mhz overclock from Pershoot from recovery and reboot
*Go back into setcpu... hit "menu" and select autodetect again ...you'll notice you now have frequencies for up to 825mhz
*Configure min and max frequency to your liking (652mhz seems to be best for me) (you may want to set a sleep profile of 245min/245max since you won't need OC while you aren't using the device)
*Enjoy

TESTED AND WORKING ON Cyangenmod 5.0.7 / KingKlick's ERIS2G1 / ZXHero 1.5 / ZXHero 2.1 / KingKlick's Legend2G1 / NoSense 1.5 / HTC CLay's Superfast / ALL CSDI ROMS !

Agreed, the zip isn't signed correctly. Here's a working version.

Might want to thank Koush and Pershoot for the kernel script too.

Would you be willing to talk about how this works and how it can work on any Rom. I would be interested in knowing that.

EDIT ... Actually I found some info in the overclock thread. Thanks.

Uses Anykernel.zip created by Koush
updater-script runs and extract the boot.img from your current ROM.
It unpacks the boot.img into kernel and ramdisk.
It repacks newboot.img with the new kernel and the same ramdisk.
It flashes the newly created boot image.

I got the source HERE
