    Then send (Tools > Send File) the file back to /etc/event.d and reboot.

    I suppose you could delete lines 24 and 25, but I decided to play it safe and just change the number.

    To confirm the speed change, in the Linux Commandline run:

    cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/stats/time_in_state


    I can understand most of this, but where is the linux commandline?

    In WebOS Quick Install under Tools > Linux Commandline.

    When I ran the following command "cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/stats/time_in_state" I get the following:

    600000 27661
    550000 635
    500000 270
    250000 0
    125000 0

    This is with the powersave-smartreflex patch installed.

    Is this normal?

    Thanks!

    i've got a frozen pre thanks to cpu scaling, but when I try to run webosdoctor it keeps saying "battery charging" for a moment, and then "device disconnected" even though it's still plugged in. so what gives? is it just too low on juice?

    I really hope once I get things up and running again smartreflex proves to be a better choice. whats the difference in battery life improvement between the two?

    there is a giant warning in the description saying NOT to use the two patches together.

    i'll talk to dbsooner about pushing a 500mhz version soon (no laptop right now)

    Without any clocking or scaling:

    600000 0
    550000 571
    500000 497034
    250000 0
    125000 0

    I am using the SR patch at 600mhz. So far so good.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    wanna paste your speed change?

    okay, so I can't get webosdoctor to work. I've plugged my pre into the wall. it goes from the battery warning screen to the frozen palm screen, back to the battery warning screen after awhile. the screen never turns off.

    when I plug the phone into my laptop I can't seem to get it to install the omap driver. it just disconnects.

    what do I do next?

    turn off the pre then hold the volume up button as you plug the wsb into the pre. this should give you a big usb picture on the pre then you can dr it

    so is this a patch that you can install straight from preware without using command lines?
    I am not command line savvy. Also wanted to know if it can be uninstalled from preware just as easy?

    i'm considering installing one of these patches. any ideas as to what other patches might be conflicting and causing all these folks to have to doctor their pres? is it possible for an application, mytether, or messaging plugins to cause this kind of conflict?

    My understanding is that it's not a conflict at all. The issue is, both of the scripts in Preware are overclocking the Pre. Worse off, they're setting this clock speed immediately at boot. So basically, if your Pre can't handle 600mHz, it might freeze immediately. Then, upon trying to reboot, it'll lock up again as soon as you it gets a little ways into the boot process, therefore getting you stuck before you can even remove it.

    That's why on the other thread, I recommend temporarily changing the speed setting on your Pre as a test, to see if it can handle it, before changing any script to make it automatically turn on the settings you're going to use.

    I have no idea yet, but I would recommend NOT installing the CPU scaling patch. Smartreflex seems to be okay for everyone so far.

    I installed the SmartReflex patch then rebooted my Pre. It came up and crashed while Luna was loading. The power switch was ineffective and the screen unresponsive. I thought I may have bricked it. I removed the battery and turned it on again. The boot screens blinked and finally Luna appeared! I have been testing the patch with many different applications including video and all I see is speedier performance.

    I read with great interest the comments on the potential downside of "overclocking" the Pre. First of all I would not say these patches "overclock" the CPU. The Pre contains a TI OMAP3430 processor that is rated to run at 600 MHz. The patches allow the processor to run up to their rated speed. The downside of running it at full speed is lower battery life. It should not hurt the life of the phone.

    For example, I am running a P6 processor rated for 2.5 GHz at 2.833 GHz. It is my experimental Linux box. The machine has been running at this speed for 7 years. The computer is beyond its technological lifetime so any decrease in life is insignificant. How many people plan to own their Pre for more than 2 years?

    Palm probably fixed the speed at 500 MHz to tweak the battery life. A later WebOS release will probably implement SmartReflex when they take better advantage of the GPU. Expect something to happen around the time FLASH is implemented.

    Can anyone tell me why my Pre went from this:

    600000 597209
    550000 577
    500000 287
    250000 0
    125000 0

    To this:

    600000 1257394
    550000 577
    500000 287
    250000 0
    125000 0

    Is that bad?!

    The file is called time_in_state. As the time that it is in each state increases, the number beside each will increase.
