custom firmware 1.2 issues with overclocking
« on: November 13, 2009, 03:57:22 am »
hello all,
much love to omgmog and pof for the custom firmwares...heres the deal tho...on the old firmware when i overclocked it and went to a game menu or whatever, it moved super fast...that way i knew it was overclocked.  in these new firmwares, when i overclock (using this ridiculous method of pressing a, pressing a again and holding, left to games, etc etc) it doesn't speed anything up.  i know i'm using the overclock app properly, but it doesn't seem to be working in either omgmogs or pofs custom.  HELP ME!...hehe thank you for your time.

I have also noticed that overclocking doesn't seem to work on my Dingoo. Not with firmware 1.1 and not with firmware 1.2. I didn't know about dingoobench yet, but I just tried it. No matter what I try it always returns 3724ms. My Dingoo is a somewhat older version with paw. I also tried reinstalling the overclocking .apps, but that didn't work. Anyone else not able to overclock?

You run overclock app and game in this method?

Instruction:

Get in 3D menu
Select the overclock application, push A, release A
Push again A (very quickly) and keep it pressed.
Then push B (or left) several time until you get back to the principal menu
Then you have to get in "interesting games", and that's the most tricky moment:
Release A and (as fast as you can) repush it to get in "interesting gammes". Keep A pressed.
Navigate in the menus using left and right on the d-pad, always keeping A pressed.
Select you game/emulator with right on the d-pad, and when finaly on the game, release A.

That works thanks, has there been any updates to this app to fix this?

I don't think any updates to the app can fix this. The problem is that newer firmware always restores the default clock speed when an app exits. The only way for overclocking in games/emus now is to either build it in to the game/emu itself or create some sort of "loader" in front of them. I already did a quick test using the "loader" approach, but I couldn't find a way to launch apps from an app.
