There are 3 main features to Droid Overclock. They are as follows:

1) Control CPU: Set min/max frequencies, enable custom profiles (battery temp, screen on, screen off, charging. battery percentage, etc.), set scaling governor, etc.

2) Set frequencies on the fly: This feature is used mostly for devices where flashing a custom kernel is not possible because of the locked bootloader. Your device must be supported to use this feature (see list below). Other phones can still overclock by flashing custom kernels!

3) Extras tweaks: froyo apps2sd, ad blocker, lcd density, fix permission, manage cache, build.prop edits, etc.

Devices supported by module:
(read below for other devices)
Droid X
Droid 2
Milestone 2
Galaxy Beam
Galaxy A
Archos A70 Tablet
Archos A101 Tablet

If you don't have one of the above devices it does not mean you can't overclock/underclock!! Most devices can still overclock or underclock by simply flashing a custom kernel. You can then use Droid Overclock to control CPU and setup custom profiles. Controlling CPU and setting up profiles is the greatest benefit to Droid Overclock and will increase your performance immensely.

This app will work on pretty much any rooted device. Xoom and other tablets included. UI updates for tablets are planned.

Quick Troubleshooting:

If for some reason the download hangs go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> Market -> click "clear data" -> reboot your phone and then try the download again.

If you are rooted but receive an error saying you need root try going into Superuser -> click "Droid Overclock" -> click "forget" and re-open the app

Note: Original Droid users must have the stock 4 slot kernel for the module to work. Support for more kernels may come later.
