Yes it is from InsanelyMac in some obscure thread ( did not bookmark it,just copied the attachment ).
Getting CPU throttling to work ...
Download and install these 2 ( replacing the AppleAPCIBatteryManager which you can delete ) using Kext Helper
Reboot and copy this to your desktop and run it
Now setup your preferences
check the hide window when inactive so the window would be hidden when you move to other apps
And auto start it when you login, in System Preferences -> Accounts. Click on your account, then Login Items and the + and traverse to where app is and you're done
Wait, the N270 is Dualcore??
And would that let you overclock it? (I'm a total noob at that) and how would you go about doing so, safely?
And is there a way to do it with windows? (7 or vista supported)
I did try A1ctl but I couldn't figure out how to properly "overclock" it.
The CPU options only show 800mhz and dynamic. it is preset to 800 for battery and dynamic for ac. I'm assuming 800 is some sort of "underclock" but what exactly does dynamic mean? Sorry if I'm super noob :P I'm smart in... other areas. (socket programming and stuff haha)
Team.AU - Team Australia Blog Archive MSI Wind U100 meets LN2 for Atom World Record :fail . by dynamic it means,the CPU will run faster when it needs too and slowdown when idle ( like when you go get some coffee while putting the pr0n you are watching on pause ) ..save the environment
Hmm...I used to have fun overclocking CPUs back in high school...
It's a lot easier on desktops with motherboard BIOSes even facilitating or automating the overclock.
Even using GenericCPUPM may have been the cause of death of the last Toshiba laptop motherboard I was using.
Could have been something else like a poorly soldered G72M Nvidia GPU.
That said, from disassembling my AOD150 (and stripping a screw the first time through) I wouldn't imagine that these boards are necessarily designed with durability (for capacitors and the like) in terms of long-term overclocking. If you're willing to replace the capacitors on your AOD150 mobo, be my guest.
Otherwise, I recommend keeping it simple, stupid, and not overclocking, especially if you're not trying to run a game that's just unplayable with default clock speeds.
I also noticed that with a good pair of headphones there's a fair amount of background noise on the AOD150 headphone jack. That seems to be the case only when the CPU is at 1.6 GHz and not throttled back to 800 MHz.
That's interesting since I'm assuming the onboard Realtek ALC272 is newer than the crystal clear ALC262 on my Toshiba or the almost-crystal-clear Sigmatel 9200 on my Gateway.
I guess packing all of that componentry into such a small space is responsible for the noise. (intermittent humming) And cost-cutting measures.

Nobrainer to install ( comes with OSX drivers ). Just plug it in and it will install
More updates when i use it more
Anyways, this link below contains lots of useful things.
First off, there is this guy SticMAC who made 100% perfect audio enabling for the Acer Aspire one, I'm sure it's a million times better than voodooHDA. I'm using his HD audio enabler right now. Internal mic works, speakers work, headphones work, microphone slot works. Perfect for me, cause I'm going to be doing a lot with Garage Band :D This is my new recording device, and I'm super freaking happy.
Also if you scroll to the bottom of this guy's post he lists some other very useful things for the aspire, such as enabling the SD reader, and making the screen zoom out so you can see the bottom of programs (artguiscale).
It's kind of funny though. I merged all 3 of the tutorials, this guy, and yours and NighTalon's. I started with NighTalons, ran -v cpus=1 to start everything off, then used yours for which custom kexts to install initially (minus VooDoo Kernel), then I ran NighTalon's driver scripts, then I used your "double tap" enabler thing, then I used the SticMAC audio, SD card enabler and the artguiscale from this post. And now I'm landed with....
An 80% functional mac book :D.
I'm installing this on my friend's cpu for 50 bucks :P gonna make mad money.
I couldn't manage to get the wireless to work at all, sadly. I read some tutorials on KicMac or w/e but it just doesn't work. And then when I ran your AR5007.pkg in your zip, it totally ruined my system and gave me tons of kernel failures when i rebooted (I'm assuming it's because I didn't have VooDoo installed or something). So now I'm brained. I guess I'll just sit and wait for someone to develop an easily functional Atheros kext. I guess i don't really need it, since I'll be dual booting Windows 7 and Leopard... And I'm mainly using Leopard for Garage Band.
The other problem is the ethernet. I installed the one that both of you included, forget the name, but you HAVE to have it plugged in, before you boot. Which sucks. Cause I don't want to have to reboot just to upload files really fast to easily access them from my other computers, and still maintain major portability. Oh well.
I guess I'm satisfied. But not fully. Give me Atheros5007GE!! haha.

Acer Aspire One A150: iPC OSx86 10.5.6 - InsanelyMac Forum
Oh, btw, this post also includes something at the bottom about enabling sleep with SmartSleep when you shut the lid. I'll let you look into it and tell me if it works! :P
That was the very first thing I looked at when I started this obsession .. SticMAC's audio fix don't work ( think it works for the 8.9 version or not my version of AOD150-1Bb ) and the sleep still don't work .. as long as it don't sleep, it works fine ;) so for mine made it such that when lid is close, screen is off but no sleep ;)
SAPGUI works on OSX - for those interested
download it here ftp://ftp.sap.com/pub/sapgui/java/ in MacOSX - e.g. PlatinGUI-MacOSX-xxxxx.jar ( where xxxxx is the version .. Once when completed downloading, double click to install. It's installed in Applications\SAP Clients\SAPGUI
Setup your clients connections ( need to edit the /etc/services file to add your SAP TCP connections ) and voila
Getting closer to my goal of running fully OSX :D .. So far this setup works like 95%. it runs everything I threw at it. iLife/iWork/Apple Updates etc.. :D
for the wireless .. gave up on the stock .. buy a Broadcomm based card and it works like a charm .. no workarounds needed. It just loads and connects and with the 3G USB thingy, fully mobile .. no umbilical ( except when need to recharge ) and connected everywhere
Maybe get a USB tv tuner and can watch TV on it ... lol
