    Wow, awesome thread, I wish I could overclock my Pre but don't want to risk it until someone has long term results on this.

    I just wanted to mention that I have had my Pre unlocked to 600 Mhz for three weeks now and no major problems. I have never had a lockup or needed to reboot (although I do manually perform a reboot about once a week just in case it needs it).

    The only issues I have noticed is an occasional lag when opening the camera app, usually for a few seconds it is unresponsive then it works fine after it loads. Also while videos are buffering there is a flicker but once they start playing the flicker disappears.

    I use my phone moderately through out the day, 30-45 minutes of phone, couple hours of data, constant push on my gmail and yahoo, full location services setup, always on bluetooth and wifi. I usually have between 2-4 bars of service at work and 1 bar of roam only (data roaming enabled) at home with wifi service. If I take the phone off of the touchstone around 1:00 pm, by the time I get home around 11:00 pm it still has around 50-60% battery life left.

    i have it fully rooted and have installed the OP's cet-cpuspeed but I made a few tweaks myself to increase the reponsiveness and help keep battery life in check.

    Here is my cet-cpuspeed script...
    exec /opt/sbin/cpuspeed -i 1 -M 600000 -r -p 15 75

    Here is my cpu time infomation since it was last rebooted (yesterday afternoon I think).
    600000 164582
    550000 56273
    500000 133696
    250000 909184
    125000 4388889

    I also have created a couple of scripts in /usr/bin/ that lets me perform a few common tasks easier than trying to remember various commands and paths. Make sure you chmod +x them and verify permissions before running.

    root@castle:/usr/bin# cat cputime
    #!/bin/sh
    cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/stats/time_in_state

    root@castle:/usr/bin# cat lunarestart
    #!/bin/sh
    stop LunaSysMgr && start LunaSysMgr

    Thanks to everyone here and at webos-internals.org for their work in helping this phone reach it's full potential.

    works great for me. Using clipcarl's program, vitvipers alteration to the cet-script and polling for cpu and screen changes every tenth of a second. Consumer literally nothing when in standby now. Battery consumption with screen on is on par with, if not better, than stock. Also the OS is 3GS fast now.
    FYI: My first phone was not stable with this. It lost EVDO connection. Now with second phone working perfectly. EVEN THE PHONE APP IS INSTANTANEOUSLY RESPONSIVE!!!

    Can you repost those settings?

    To Clip if youre still monitoring this thread...

    I really wanna use your script and I have to revise my statement about EVDO loss...

    It seems to be happening after a cpu script is saved, and a reboot is done to enable it.

    And once the os is running, if it goes into standby, without being plugged in somehow...

    Then it loses evdo... So standby affects it, for me anyways,

    Any ideas.

    Somehow I don't believe this. I would love to see what you're running for this to be possible. Since I've had a 3GS since launch I don't see the Pre coming close to the responsiveness of that phone anytime soon.

    I have rooted my pre, installed OP's cpu scaling, installed roam only hack, changed boot screens, add new launcher pages, deleted nascar and nfl app, installed filecoaster, setup lanscape email and delete confirmation, installed amazon evdo hack, installed on screen keyboard, installed my tether, developer mode button, installed myip, installed music remix, installed quilt, installed optware, installed terminal, browser downloads, messaging timestamps, camera capture with volume keys, and probably a few more I'm missing.

    All of these are via this forum or webos-internals.org.

    Just an update, rebooted this morning and here's my cputime output (thanks y2k!)

    k4p741n@castle:/$ sudo cputime
    600000 311216
    550000 208686
    500000 234107
    250000 196866
    125000 263405

    I am a heavy HEAVY user of this phone and without this mod the battery only lasted me half a day at best.

    I'm using the cet-cpuspeed script with VitVipers args (see my previous post on last page), roam-only mod, Switcharoo bg switcher set to 5 minutes, brightness at approx. 40%, ssh client running, sftp server running, scripts checking every 5 minutes for SMS keywords and New SMS for and LED mod (thanks Ikyo!). I use wifi throughout the day and I only charge once while I'm sleeping!

    K4P, can you post you exec script? I think I am going to run it what you have to see how it does.

    Hmmm, not sure what is going on. I put in the exec line that K4p had in another post and rebooted the device. It is stuck on a black screen with the palm logo. I will wait and see if it comes back up. I wonder what could be causing this.

    I am having to reset my device again for a second time. Anytime that I attempt to run the cpuspeed program it crashes my device. I am not sure what is causing it.

    I tried even running it from a command prompt and it killed the device. It kicked me out of novaterm. I made the mistake of adding it to the even.d. I am not sure what could be causing it unless it needs to be setuid root or something strange.

    I just installed this 2 days ago on my pre, and used viper's one line in the config.

    I took my pre off the touchstone at 1pm today. Now, at 3am with some light browsing (Mainly filecoaster) and calls, and a lot of texting, I am at 73%. 13 hours, 27%. I am stunned. This is on a OEM battery as well. It might help my browsing was done on my wifi, and the calls were short, but this is still awesome.
  17. #377  
    yes i was equally astonished by the difference made. It is seriously quick though. Open phone app 1.2 or 1.5 seconds. Maybe a better way to quantify is that with the cpu humming at 600mhz, there is 3 to 4 seconds shaved off just about every app. As well as SMOOTH scrolling, flicking through launcher pages is a breeze. If i want to take a quick pic-app is up in a little less than three seconds. Switching between apps with the "advanced gesture" registers so quickly that pages fly by. You know those new menus "animations"? The ones that are so choppy that they have thus far been fairly useless and trivial. Well I can see them now, and they are actually pretty sweet. However, I would like to warn that WebOS partitions in a manner that eliminates this speed boost once you have 6 or 7 apps open. The exec line is:
    exec /opt/sbin/cpuspeed -i 1 -m 125000 -M 600000 -a /sys/devices/platform/lcd.0/panel_state -A 1 -D -C -r -p 15 75

    Also vit created a patch, which is on one of the pages in this thread. I have applied that as well. Hope this helps!

    1. Unzip the 'baseline.zip' file so that you have a script file called 'baseline'
    2. Copy the 'baseline' file to your old Pre in USB mode (so that it ends up in /media/internal)
    3. Go to a root shell prompt (Novaterm, SSH or whatever) on the old Pre and run
      sh /media/internal/baseline backup
      This will create the file /media/internal/baseline.tar.gz which will have your backup
    4. Copy the 'baseline' and 'baseline.tar.gz' files to your computer using USB mode, scp or something else.
    5. Activate your new Pre and put it in developer mode
    6. Copy the 'baseline' file and the 'baseline.tar.gz' file to your old Pre in USB mode (so that they end up in /media/internal)
    7. Go to a root shell prompt using Novaterm on the new Pre and run
      sh /media/internal/baseline restore
      This will restore all of your optware files, set up the Pre to mount /opt on boot, ask you to change the root password and reboot your new Pre.

    This will restore optware and all optware packages you had installed. It will also restore your CPUSpeed startup script.
    Just so you know, in order to use this I had to nano the script, removing /etc/shells and /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth otherwise tar would error out saying the folders didn't exist (which they don't).

    I'm gonna try and use a couple different exec lines and find the best one. I was watching a lot of Pre reviews for kicks today and I realize that my phone is operating much slower than the ones on film, even with 10 apps open. Also, strangely enough my battery has starter to wear down like the salt lick in Rosie O' Donnell's bathroom, trying to find the culprit there, I don't believe it's this script as it increased it immensely for a couple days.

    Here's my latest cputime, been running for a couple hours.

    600000 230423
    550000 97252
    500000 173696
    250000 162911
    125000 658161

    And exec line

    exec /opt/sbin/cpuspeed -i 2 -M 600000 -r -p 55 75

    Any ideas what would cause my phone to just lockup? I did a factory reset from WebOS Doctor and it still died.
