Hi all, after installing MaartenXDA's ROM, I saw the performance control and wanted advice on a safe frequency to overclock my DX to. Thanks in advance! :D

we need someone to create a custom kernel for our phone. without custom kernel, we cant overclock our phone.

but i dont see any reason yet to overclock, the current frequency are fast enough for me even for gaming. unless you have a very slow phone, 1ghz single core processor and below it would be good.

i used to overclock a lot on my single core processor phone from 1ghz to 1.2-1.8ghz frequency. of course the higher frequency you're on the more risk you are gonna damage the cpu of your phone and battery because of overheat. from 1ghz, overclocking to 1.2-1.4ghz is safe.

underclocking would be a smart idea though to save battery.

the main reason custom kernel are needed for me are to use some governors and schedulers to save battery or performance.
