Control Your CPU Parameters in Material Design Style
Posted August 17, 2014 at 06:30 pm by Tomek Kondrat
Material Design is Google’s new UI metaphor for Android, which was presented for the first time during the Google I/O 2014 keynote. Developers are slowly adapting their applications to match these latest design instructions. However, this is naturally a slow process that is hindered by Android L preview SDK’s limited availability. Hopefully more applications will be updated to Material Designed aesthetics after the official Android L release.
One of the most popular applications to control your CPU parameters is No-frills CPU Control. Unfortunately XDA Recognized Developer hrk, who created this application has been inactive for some time and the application hasn’t been updated for over a year. XDA Recognized Themer TheArc took the publicly available sources and adapted them to match the Material Design look. The new app is now known as CPU Controls and offers basic options to control the hidden kernel settings. With this application, you can change the maximum and minimum frequency, governor, and I/O scheduler. CPU Controls will soon be expanded to have some under the hood features enabled, which weren’t introduced with the original No-Frills CPU Controls.
To change the hidden values in your kernel, the application needs a root access. You can find out how to root your device by checking our database! Your CPU can be controlled in a stylish manner. CPU Control gives you a way to do this within the confines of the Material Design aesthetic. You can get started by visiting the CPU Control application thread.
