Tweak Your Kernel with Kernel Tuner 2014

There are dozens of overclocking and kernel tweaking apps out there. In addition, some ROMs offer built-in settings to set your CPU governor and overclocking options. However, not every ROM offers such functionality, and many applications that let you tweak the more advanced kernel capabilities are paid-only or freemium.

XDA Recognized Developer pedja1 wants to change this with a free app that lets you work your kernel tweaking magic.Kernel Tuner 2014 is a rewritten version of Kernel Tuner, an app originally intended for HTC Evo 3D. The majority of functions work with other devices, hence the decision to revamp the app, adding some brand new functions.

So, what this app can actually do? Many things. You can fully control the CPU, GPU on Qualcomm devices, voltage, governors, and much more. The list of features is very long, so the best thing to do would be to try it out for yourself on your own device.

To use Kernel Tuner 2014, your phone must be rooted and be running a custom kernel. Obviously, you must also be careful when adjusting your kernel parameters. If you don’t know what you’re doing, be prepared to have a restore image handy.

Unleash the full power of your kernel in a few simple steps. Head over to the Kernel Tuner 2014 application thread to get started.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
