Easy CPU Management with RemCPU for the Nexus S 4G

XDA Recognized Developer lithid-cm has created an extremely simple, and easy to use script to control the CPU of one of the most beloved Nexus line devices: the Nexus S 4G. RemCPU is a script that allows you to ‘set and forget’ your CPU settings. By adding the script to your device and running it once to configure it, you can bypass the need for a separate app to handle control of your CPU. This is both a time and power saver because there is no need for an additional process to run. To install the controller script, flash the update.zip and run the following command in a terminal emulator:

sh /system/etc/init.d/89remCPU

The script sets itself up to start at every boot. Easy to use and efficient, remCPU is worth looking at for any Nexus S 4G users looking to streamline their experiences.

If you’d like to check it out, head over to the original thread and download the update.zip. As always with any mod that must be flashed to your system memory, be sure to back up your entire device first in case anything should go wrong. Don’t forget to leave some feedback if it works for you!
