Overclocking NITDroid 0.0.9

Overclocking in NITDroid 0.0.9 is a touch different in terms of steps.

Instructions to overclock are at the forum:

The only difference is that there is no power.conf file in 0.0.9 so you will either need to create one and populate it or use one of the preset profiles in the /and/system/etc directory by renaming it to power.conf


An example if you wish to use one of the presets:

# sudo
# mount /dev/mmcblk1p2 /and

# cd /and/system/etc
# mv oc-profile-500-750.conf power.conf
# cd
# umount /and

or create a power.conf with a text editor like leadpad etc and copy the contents of your desired OC profile to it, save and reboot. The power.conf has to be in /and/system/etc

Note: OC'ing to 1000mhz will make your device unstable and generate more heat. Best to avoid that.

NITDroid 0.0.9 xMasDroid

Thanks to e-yes and crevetor we have a new NITDroid version. A complete change log is still due. Check NITDroid forum for news and announcement.

The following will help you install NITDroid 0.0.9 on sdcard with the old kernel while we all wait for a new kernel to be released.

# sudo
# cd /home/user/MyDocs

# wget
# bzip2 -d NITDroid-0.0.9.tar.bz2
# mount /dev/mmcblk1p2 /and
# cd /and
# rm -rf * (this removes all the files from the old installation)
# tar xvf /home/user/MyDocs/NITDroid-0.0.9.tar

# cd /home/user/MyDocs
# wget (yes you have to reinstall the old kernel again till the new one is released)

# dpkg -i nitdroid-kernel-2.6.28-06_final1_armel.deb

If you have it on emmc then change EXT to INT from item file. I will do the emmc install after when the new kernel releases.

Warning: Your current installation will get wiped out. You can backup data folder if you want to restore later.
Update: DO NOT restore /data folder from 0.0.8 installation to 0.0.9.
