    The forums here are full of people with the latest update, declaring the bugs they had experienced before being taken care of.

    I personally tried the TP out the week it was debuted, and didnt see any of the problems reported - it was blazingly fast and very responsive out of the gate, and I posted so, here.

    I think this post and the video is more about the Homebrew community, and, they certainly do deserve kudos, IMO.

    mine runs just fine with the stock kernel and the help of a few patches. But I'm gonna overclock it just because I can :-)

    leonkehoe, the Touchpad performs well without overclocking. Mine is pretty fast. Some people like to push the limits on things. I'm sure this video is for anyone who wants to overclock their Touchpad, not specifically for you.

    thanks jkendrick for taking the time to make this.

    Did you click on his link before posting in his thread? He clearly writes that the Touchpad performed well without the overclock:

    "I applied the OTA system update as soon as it was available and was impressed with the improvement over the TouchPad as released by HP. I then applied homebrew patches to make it even better and the result was spectacular. My TouchPad was running almost as well as the iPad, which is the goal in the tablet world.

    Last night I decided to take it a step further with the homebrew stuff, and applied a test kernel that overclocks my TouchPad to 1.7 GHz. This has been a very stable upgrade that doesn’t impact battery life much, yet has made my TouchPad as fast as any tablet I have used. Opening apps is almost instantaneous, and the entire system operation is as smooth and fast as can be."

    I personally can't wait for UberKernel to graduate from the testing feeds cause I'd love to see how fast my TP gets when it's running at 2.0 Ghz... It will probably make me so happy I'll end up sending another donation to the WebOS Internals team. We gotta take care of these guys!

    regardless of how well it runs without overclocking, the TP is always scaling frequencies. If it ever jumps to 1.7 ghz it's because it needed to, to avoid slow down. Otherwise it will go all the way down to 192mhz. I'd let it scale to 2.3ghz for 10 seconds if it would avoid slowdown. Everyone should OC their Touchpad.

    I agree. Homebrew is what sets Webos apart from the rest!
