Control Your Android Processor Frequencies With “No Frills”
Posted January 13, 2011 at 06:00 pm by egzthunder1
We all know about and love SetCPU. Being able to control the frequencies of the processor either beyond or below its intended usage is a wonderful thing. However, not everyone knows how to use it or understands the profile creation process. With this in mind, XDA member hrk has released his own clocking app, which allows the user to modify frequencies and control the governor in the device. It works very similarly to SetCPU with a few notable differences. For instance, the need to create profiles is gone and the app will run on very little RAM.
This is meant to work on roms that are sysfs enabled such as CM. Ask the chef of the device you are using if you are not certain about this. Also, please leave feedback for the dev to see if there is anything that could be improved in this app.
I’ve made a very simple application which can be used to set cpu scaling frequencies and governor. Yeah, imagine SetCPU without profiles, minimal use of RAM, released as open source, and requiring CyanogenMod (or any sysfs-enabled ROM). “No frills” is the right description for it.
