    Not sure if I did this right. I dont see any speed differences.

    From Rico's thread
    -Downloaded eclaire oc zip from here -http://www.mediafire.com/?bbjdipudz53hm#7ut1r4qx6j9ps,1 Made sure not to choose the SD card version
    -Copied zip onto a blank SD card
    -Wiped Cache, Wiped Dalvik
    -Installed the zip and rebooted device
    -I used CPU Master bc it's free. Put the slider all the way to the right. Selected Set on boot and hit Apply.

    Not seeing any difference in performance and when I get back into CPU Master. It says 300Mhz at the top but says 300mhz~1100mhz in green.

    Any Ideas?

    Are your rooted 1.0.1 or 1.1? They kernel you you listed is only for those ROMs. If you are on 1.2 you need to choose a froyo kernel (although if you are on 1.2 I would be suprised that the eclair kernel worked).

    Not familiar with CPU Master but if it has profiles you may also need to adjust the profile. It is possible the default profile is set for battery over speed. YOu should notice a difference when using an OC kernel and can verify using Quadrant scores before and after. Here is a thread listing some imporevement gains that you might expect to see http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...6579-nook-performance-increases-settings.html.
