    Commandline is a linux commandline directly to your pre and has become known as "rooting" and can be opened through quickinstall

    1. open webOSQI
    2. go to 'Tools > Linux Commandline'
    3. type 'cat /proc/cpuinfo'

    Your processor's speed will be listed at the top, to the right of 'BOGOMIPS speed:' it should read 796.91.

    It says in the very first post of instructions how to check the speed. People installing overclocking kernals should at least read the complete instructions.

    you can also check your speed through terminus on your pre

    cat /proc/cpuinfo

    i finally decided to install the Overclock 800MHz kernel from unixpsycho's site...

    went into WOSQI>Tools>Linux Commandline

    and entered: cat /proc/cpuinfo

    Only my sprint pre says: BogoMIPS: 408.54

    any ideas?

    THX IN ADVANCE!!!

    What kernel did you install (exact name)? Did you do a full restart after installing?
