    My Pre has had the overclock since day 1 of it's release. I had the 800 sh file, then the SuperKernal, and now Govnah and Uberkenernal. It's running great and I honestly don't know how I survived without it
    No overheating issues and as far as battery; maybe it's in my head but the battery seems to be better with the kernal.
    Oh yeah, only on my second Pre since launch day.

    I put a glue paste on it, I don't know what it's called, but it hardens, and my crack hasn't advanced in months, and it has taken some serious knocks since. I have on the bodyglove so you see the paste. I do see a weakened area under the plastic close to the screen, but I think that has been there ever since.

    BTW, UberKernel/Govnah, and great so far..

    My Pre is a ticking time bomb anyway since I have the dreaded USB crack that's slowly spreading towards the screen
    My above post was in reference to yours, but I didnt quote sorry..

    Other than occasional restarts that I belive are related to 1.4.1, I'm loving the overclock patch. To be honest with you, I forget that I have it sometimes and I feel like this is how the phone should have been from day one.

    This is "race to idle" showing up: - Saving Power on Intel systems with Linux

    Basically the idea is that no matter what state you have the processor in, it uses significantly less power when in idle state than in powered on state. If you can get the processor to idle state more quickly, you end up saving power.
