Daemon Controller: Easier CPU Tweaking for Froyo and Up
There are a plethora of tools out there to help users control their CPU. There are both device specific apps that focus on single devices and general tools for everyone. There is a new CPU controller app that makes it easier to set your CPU.
The tool is called Daemon Controller, and it was released by XDA Senior Member Sybregunne. Sybregunne explains how the app works:
A small android application that can control the daemons andrev_oc and virtuous_oc, directly set current cpu frequencies and modify cpu voltage in a per frequency basis.
And the features include:
Supports android 2.2 (Froyo) and above (Tested with Gingerbread)
Can configure andrev_oc and virtuous_oc
Allows switching between the two
Faster load times (average of 700ms)
Added core toggler hidden in the options menu as it is experimental at this stage. Works on tf101 using guevor kernel
Supports 2 methods of undervolting
vdd_levels:echo ” ” > /vdd_levels
UV_mV_table:echo ” … ” > /UV_mV_table where n is the number of available frequencies
This can be a really handy application for users who want to make some quick edits to their CPU frequencies or even more advanced users looking for more custom configurations. To install, simply download the APK and install as usual.

Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
