Heh.  I didn't know for sure that the comments would be ignored, I just gave it a try and it worked.

As for the screen flicker, that's why I used comments.  When I have more time to really see how it feels I may try the other underclocked value to see which I like better.  I just started with the lowest because it should have the biggest impact on battery life.



BTW, I was very confused about the difference between USB mini-A (host) and mini-B (device) cables until a recent post elsewhere on this site.  I didn't want to buy a mini-A USB cable until I tried making one myself by cutting the connector open and soldering a short between pins 4 and 5.  Finally got around to it, now my tiny Targus USB optical mouse with the retractable cable works.  Very cool!  I'm going to shorten my mini-A cable to about 12" tomorrow, and I need to go find a USB hub with a very low-profile power supply so I can connect other stuff.

OK, I commented out several lines:

Quote
0,Turbo,1e2,0
0,Overclocked,162,0
0,Default (PXA255),161,0
0,Normal,242,0
0,Default (PXA250),241,0
0,Power Saving,121,0
#1,Turbo (624/312/156 MHz),a000218,e
1,Turbo (624/208/104 MHz),2000310,e
#1,Overclocked (520/260/130 MHz),a000214,c
1,Overclocked (520/260/64 MHz),2000290,c
1,Standard (416/208/104 MHz),2000210,a
#1,Power Saving (208/104/104 MHz),0000110,9
1,Power Saving (143/143/71 MHz),0200010b,8

Leaves only one setting for each CPU speed.

None of the above values cause lockups for me, I just commented those three lines out to unclutter the applet.

My results with the new values:


1,Turbo (624/312/78 MHz),2000218,e     Immediately locked up, had to pull the battery.  Went back the old values
1,Overclocked (520/260/64 MHz),2000214,c     Works fine

OK, since there's no CPU tab on the System Info app, I ran Fish 1.1.0 so I could have a visual indication of the different clock speeds.  Here's what happens for me:

1,Turbo (624/312/156 MHz),a000218,e     Some light screen flickering
1,Turbo (624/208/104 MHz),2000310,e     No problem
1,Overclocked (520/260/130 MHz),a000214,c     Heavy screen flickering
1,Overclocked (520/208/104 MHz),2000290,c     Completely locks up my Z every time.  Had to pull the battery
1,Standard (416/208/104 MHz),2000210,a     No problem
1,Power Saving (208/104/104 MHz),0000110,9     No problem
1,Power Saving (143/143/71 MHz),0200010b,8     No problem

FWIW, I didn't run any of the overclocked speeds for more than about 15 seconds, so YMMV over longer periods.

Man, you guys rock!

I'll get that done this morning.  Thanks!

Lacking any specific negative feedback, I guess you'll have to assume that the two "Bad" votes are from people who prefer OZ or X and won't like _any_ Qtopia ROM.

Sweet!

Overclocking isn't really my intent.  What I want to do is underclock to extend my battery life while reading books.

Now all I need to do is go find and try out the underclock values.   Thanks!

I, for one, eagerly await the release of that modified Battery and Overclock applet.

ArchiMark is right.  "Good" just isn't adequate.

Thank you!

Thumbs up, so far.  The beta is running well for me, the added network apps function correctly but I still haven't checked all the IPKs I added myself.

Andy (and everyone else working on this), excellent work!  Thanks!

I have the Ambicom WL1100C-CF.  Works well with my 3000.

Maybe I'm giving the Sharp guys too much credit, but since mine doesn't turn off if I tap the screen or press a key, I assumed that it was purposefully done to prevent unknowingly powering on and killing your battery.

Personally, I prefer the larger 32x32 icons in Opera.  Much easier to hit them with my stylus after 2 or 3 bottles of Guinness.

Although you said it's a minor shuffle, it really unclutters the board.  Very nice!
