Okay. I am now using titan's flasher-maemo-kernel.
When you first install this and reboot. It is 250-600.

Then I used Desktop Command Execution Widget.
Used the following script and made it "button" sized.

Code:
echo "echo 800000 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq" | sudo gainroot
This widget currently has a very nice side effect for overclocking.
As whenever you reboot, it will run the widget once at startup. =P

But due to this "bug", I do not recommend you to place multiple of these widgets on your desktop with various speeds.
Once it has been fixed, then this widget can easily be used to quickly switch between overclocks at will by having multiple buttons on the desktop.

It can also be used to always be able to know what your current maximum frequency is by using the following script

Code:
cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq
You can obviously make it so that the output looks a bit nicer than just the number. =)

Anyways. So far so good. Might try 1.2GHz. =)

Yup. I wish I had prim95 or something similar to put 100% load and monitor any errors.

I've overclocked the Celeron 300A to 450 and 566 to 800 also. Those were the days. lol.
I also overclocked my 486-50 to 60 and AMD 486 DX4-100 to 120mhz via fsb overclock
Never got to try overclocking my 286. Hmm. Didn't have internet to google. lol
