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.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
