Change Your Clocks, Governor, and Scheduler with SimpleOC
By now, surely everyone is familiar with SetCPU—the fantastic mobile overclocking app that made its debut on the forums back in 2009 and was featured on our Portal almost two years ago. And that’s with good reason, as XDA Forum Member coolbho3000‘s creation has enabled countless users to delve into the world of mobile overclocking. Similarly, we recently featured a method of micromanaging your device’s clock speeds using the wildly popular automation app Tasker.
However, not everyone wishes to create intricate clock speed profiles, and would prefer a simple set-and-forget solution that runs automatically at boot. While the previously mentioned SetCPU can handle the task with ease, some users are also looking to change their I/O Scheduler. Thanks to XDA Recognized Developer D4rKn3sSyS and his app SimpleOC, this is now a possibility. In the words of the developer:
Ok guys this is my first overclocking app, including the following features:
- Simple management of Processor Frequencies (Min and max)
- Governors management with a gesture (Swipe down)
- IO Schedulers management with a gesture (Swipe up) *new
- Save as safe feature, wich means you have less chance to make some excesive overclock damage
- Run at boot option
- Visualization Settings
