  • Wen Wes

    Tried to install busybox app from market and phone boot locked. Any suggestions?

  • DK

    Having a problem with this…I dont have an extractable sd card folder. Theres a label there that says “sdcard-ext” but its not in folder format. How do I fix this? Thanks.

    • admin

      It should be inside the sdcard

  • zach

    when I try to unthrottle it says “sqlite3 not found”. what should I do? im running ICX .605 ROM on DROID x of course.

    Zach, I get the same error. I did a complete wipe data factory reset and wipe cashe and dalvik too and it still said the same thing. I think there is an issue with powerboost 2.2 hopefully they can fix it soon. Shane can you help shed some light on this issue ? Thanks for all you do Shane. Keep up the great vids.

    Strange… sqlite3 is an app… I wonder if it would help to dl it from the market?

    I have that app on my phone but I had no clue it was required… its probably not. Ill ask the dev the next time I see he’s on gtalk

    Its fixed the download link has been updated!

  • skyskioc

    Shane do we have to start all over again with the new download. Do we just ‘re run the updated version and do it all over again?

    • admin

      Remove the previous version just delete everything and install this

  • zach

    when i try to run setup.sh in terminal emulator it says I dont have root?

    • admin

      You must type “su” first to give terminal emulator super user permissions

    when i select dx as phone, i get a cannot create error.

  • Vince

    I have tried this process 3 times. sbf’ed, and on 3 different ROMS. but everytime i do the unthrottle it always slows my phone down big time. my system panel cpu is always above 98% and never goes lower. I dont if im doing something wrong but im very familiar with all these rooting/modding processes

    • Tyson

      I hear you took fifteen minutes to download 3mb from market. So much for unthrottling

    • jason

      Same problem here. I give up on it. I’ve tried it on 3 different roms and always bogs down the phone. I’ve tried overclocking to compensate to no.avail.

  • Matt Lang

    I have loaded it on my Bionic running Liberty3 v2.0 and for some reason I can’t get the cpu gov to work.  I use Jrummy’s Rom Toolbox and the conservative cpu gov is not listed.  I have tried reloading the rom and powerboost, and still not working.  Anything that you can suggest would be helpful.  Thanks

    Do you have to redo this after you flash sbf?

    I downloaded and ran the script and i followed your video and instructions as posted. But my phone started overheating. Like 135f. Battery wouldnt hold a fullslice charge for au while. I didn’t install anything but the unthrottle. I nandroided back to before I ran pb2.2 and seems to b faster than ever. My wifi T is round 2.5m now
