Get Complete Control Over Your Android Device’s CPU
People root their Android devices to customize the device, as we posted that rooting enables you to completely control the Android device. Once you’ve rooted your Android smartphone, you can also control your device’s CPU, some of your overclock the device to improve the device’s CPU performance, but not all apps allows you to do so.
You would be happy to know that of recognized XDA developer member smokin1337 has developed a script that enables you control the CPU, it’s very easy to use, which means you no need to worry if you’re Android beginner. The script will runs out of a terminal, so you’ll have to a use Terminal Emulator and root access to use it, the Mod comes with number of features, see below:
Change CPU Governor
Change CPU Min/Max Frequencies
Apply Settings on Boot – Sticky Mode
Set Dual Core CPU’s Independently – Governor and Frequencies
Force Dual Core – Second Core Online ALL The Time
Seperate Menus For Single and Dual Core Devices – Auto Selects
View Current Settings For Everything
Now uses config file to store values
It’s a zip file that can be install in recovery mode but as I mentioned above that your device must be rooted with a custom recovery installed, Terminal Emulator should also be installed on device, you can download Terminal Emulator from here and root the device here.
To install the zip download the CPU_Editor_RLS_4.zip and transfer it to the SD card of device, then turn the device off and reboot into recovery mode, then first make a backup of existing ROM, it’s not necessary but I recommend you, to make the backup select “Backup and Restore”, and then select “Backup” again. After that Select “Install Zip from SD Card” then “Choose Zip from SD Card” and locate the downloaded file that you’ve transferred and confirm installation.
Once you’ve install the MOD, to use the it, first open terminal, type “su” without the quotes, then type “cpu” without the quotes and do what you want. You can also head over to the original thread of XDA here to thanks the developer for this effort if you want.
