    Now we are finally getting to the good stuff. :)

    It's optional and use with caution, of course and you will need to install Clockwork recovery first. I may try it out later on, still need to install clockwork myself.

    I'll try to install all 3 new kernels today, report which worked, which didn't and post some benchmark result.

    Update: All went well...until it didn't lol. All the kernels make the NC super fast, booted and ran smooth at all (3) speeds: 900, 950 and 1Ghz. My issue was, I got sloppy and began not to wipe the cache between kernel versions. Long story short, I had to wipe data and return back to unrooted 1.0.1. Starting all over for me... wonder if the restore will work. Let me try.

    Wow, this is turning out to be a very fruitful experiment. Thanks for being so valiant!

    Did you hear I got the third today? I was so happy I hugged it for 5 minutes.

    OK, not 5. Actually I just kind of kissed it and left it at that.

    No biggie, it happens. I've bricked a device or two in the past so these bumps in the road are small potatoes. Maybe I'll actually try the auto-nooter this time around lol. That's why I always say never get attached to the way toy have your device setup when you are working with risky experimental tweaks and roms. Big risk, big reward. The speed was incredible, while I had it. :) It was so snappy, like lightning fast. Anyway I'll be back up in no time. :)

    No I haven't heard, congrats on the third "little one" in your household. :)

    Have you downloaded the autonooter yet? You might have seen the thread that it's really SLLLLOOOOOW right now for some reason. :(

    when installing the kernel, which wipe were you doing, or supposed to do in clockwork? Just the wipe cache partition one or the wipe data/factory reset

    I prefer doing all the work in CWR, outside android (not rom manager inside android os). Clear the cache partition and dalvik cache (in advance menu), then flash kernel in CWR. DO NOT WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET.

    also, do you have to have setcpu installed before flashing the overclock or is it ok to install after? Is one method better than the other
