    It looks like we have quite a few different setups for various members at this point and I was wondering if anybody cared to share their modifications and corresponding performance. If we can get some numbers together in one thread it might help others decide which changes to make. It also might help direct performance refinements.

    Ideally we would have something like this for various set ups:

    Stock auto-nooter set up

    Software: Android 2.1
    B&N: 1.0.1
    CPU: 300MHz, 600MHz, 800MHz
    Quadrant Score: 948
    Screen Time out: 2 mins
    Brightness: Low
    Wifi: always on
    Battery Life: 8+hrs

    Or screen shots of the information.

    Quadrant Score: 954
    Screen Time out: 2 mins
    Brightness: Low
    Wifi: auto
    Battery Life: 12hrs

    With SetCPU settings changed to recommendations in Battery Life thread Quadrant Score change is negligible battery life is improved.

    Using Clockwork Mod to Overclock:

    950MHz
    Software: Android 2.1
    B&N: 1.0.1
    CPU: 300MHz, 600MHz, 950MHz
    Quadrant Score: 1093 (14.5% higher than stock)
    Screen Time out: 2 mins
    Brightness: Low
    Wifi: auto
    Battery Life: Not tested
    SetCPU: rico2001's settings


    1000MHz
    Would not boot.


    1000MHz - omap 3630
    Software: Android 2.1
    B&N: 1.0.1
    CPU: 300MHz, 600MHz, 800MHz, 1000MHz
    Quadrant Score: 1124 (17.8% higher than stock)
    Screen Time out: 2 mins
    Brightness: Low
    Wifi: auto
    Battery Life: Not tested
    SetCPU: rico2001 default settings


    1100MHz - omap 3630
    Software: Android 2.1
    B&N: 1.0.1
    CPU: 300MHz, 600MHz, , 800MHZ, 1000MHz, 1100MHz
    Quadrant Score: 1170 (22.6% higher than stock)
    Screen Time out: 2 mins
    Brightness: Low
    Wifi: auto
    Battery Life: Not tested
    SetCPU: rico2001 default settings, also tested with alternative SetCPU Conservative profile settings (http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...19-setcpu-settings-nookcolor-3.html#post52675) with no real change in score.

    Never managed with Phiremod v3 or 4.1 to run Cpu Test about Video Decoding-H.264.
    Could it be that it doesnt have some codecs??

    YES, as of now you cant run Quadrant on Phiremod / CM builds.

    I'm now on Custom Nookie Froyo, but when I was on Phiremod Beta2:

    Software: Phiremod Beta2
    CPU: 300MHz-1.1GHz (300 MHz screen off, 800 MHz battery< 20%)
    Quadrant Score: 1754
    Screen Time out: 2 mins
    Brightness: Lowest
    Wifi: whatever the default is, I don't keep it always on...
    Battery Life: Never paid enough attention to tell you a number, but it was good enough

    Nice, so Phiremod Beta 2 at 1.1GHz takes it up to 85.02% increase over the stock score of 948. It is another 30% higher than Beta 2 at 800MHz over stock!

    That was the best score I got in Phiremod Beta 2. I had issues with WiFi so I decided to try Custom Nookie Froyo. I like it better and WiFi is more stable, but not perfect. Thinking about switching to the CM build with bluetooth...

    There are many good options right now but none are perfect. Sort of the wild wild west at the moment. For my reported scores I usually try and take an average of 3 or 4 tests since there always seems to be one much higher and one much lower than the others over a few tests. Looks like I need to get the 1.1GHz kernel for my Beta 2.

    I just got about the same result with the 1000MHz kernel. Not too shabby. :)

    I'm running Phiremod v5.1 and I got a 1440 Quadrant score running @ 925mhz. Wish I could take a screen shot, but that still doesn't work.

    Dunno.. All I did was flash it, install my stuff, then run Quadrant. I'm flashed differently right now, but I'll re-run it shortly and see if that was an oddball result.

    RavenJ, what do you mean "I'm flashed differently right now,"? are you using something different from CWR? or doing something different in CWR?

    Sort of.. I'm having a marathon-o-ROMs, trying to find which one I like the best. So far I've flashed/evaluated Phiremod v4.1, Phiremod v5.0, Phiremod v5.1, UD 3.1.2, Phiremod beta2 (wouldn't boot), Nookie Froyo (also wouldn't boot).. Of all of them, I've liked 5.1 the best. I think my beta2 and nookie problems come from the fact that my CWR card is running 3.0.0.6, and they want 3.0.0.5..

    I'm about to flash 5.1 back on there and call it a day.

    Don't put too much faith into Quadrant. It seems it's a nice tool but doesn't necessary give the best overall scoring. Apparently a lot of smarter people seem to think linpack is the best evaluating app for now. I haven't had time to test and compare though.

    Now that I'm back to Phiremod 5.1, I re-ran Quadrant.. The best I could get this time was 1193 and that was when I forced it to run @ 1.1ghz with a minimum of 1.1ghz. The difference between now and earlier is that I'm running the 1.1ghz kernel, where earlier I just had the 925mhz kernel... Interesting. I also forced it to run @ 800mhz and I got an 1108, so I'm thinking that overclocking this thing isn't really doing that much..
