post #1331 of 1529
Question for yall smart people. I havent really found an answer for my specific phone (Droid X) but have for other older phones. There was a way to activate a "emergency" battery for times in need if your phone was "dead". My gf keeps killing her X and I want to make sure she has a way of getting help if need be (be it stop using the damn phone or the hidden battery trick).

Thoughts?

ya, carry a couple quarters for a pay phone or a spare battery.

Battery dead, it's dead.

Now there ARE ways to preserve the battery to last longer. Most phones spend more time being inactive than they do in use, root the phone, install set cpu so you can set a profile for when the phone screen is off and downclock the cpu. Phone in sleep mode isn't doing a whole lot and doesn't need to do a whole lot so downclocking it can save a massive amount of battery. I took my battery from lasting about 12 hours up to 30+ before

I think this is probably the biggest reason to root an Android phone. Being able to "overclock" your processor. I find that a lot of times it ends up being more useful to be able to downclock it with a program like SetCPU. I think my Droid runs at 125 MHz when the screen is off and 800 when doing things.

I always keep a charger in my car just in case. I got one of those car lighter to USB adapters and I just so happen to have like 3 micro usb cables lying around (Yay standardization!)

How does your phone handle receiving phone calls when the screen is off? I used to keep mine clocked at 250/125 with the screen off... but it would take awfully long to turn the display on whenever I was getting a phone call. I ended up switching it 550/125 and it works great.

It's not too bad. There is a little noticeable lag when I get an incoming call but it doesn't prevent me from actually being able to answer it in time. It might be more of an issue if I actually get phone calls more than I do. I only receive phone calls maybe like 4 or 5 times a week, definitely not enough to change anything.

thanks for all the help spykez!!!

on another note, what would a rooted milestone with froyo on it go for now?
included accessories:
dock
stock battery and larger siedio battery
seidio case to fit the large battery
2 USB cables
Still have original box and documents

theres also been a screen protector and case on it since the first day.
the screen has never been truly touched so peel the protector off, put the stock battery
in, and the things literally like new

I won't sell it unless its actually worth something. I could use the extra cash. also switching to "pay as you go" plan so won't even really have 3g internet for it.


EDIT:
also, I rooted for the first time last night and lost a few purchased apps. SetCPU was one of the first ones I bought ages ago before I knew you had to be rooted. it's not in my marketplace as being purchased anymore (lost a few apps this way). now that its rooted i'd love to try it. anyone have the sdk?
