LG GearBox Gives Optimus 4X HD CPU Control Without Root

A short time ago, we brought you news about root and recovery for the LG Optimus 4X HD. Thanks to this, ROMs could be created and development could begin on LG’s newest Android offering. This is definitely good news for early adopters of the device. Now, there is an application that can help control things like processor clock speed on the Optimus 4X HD, and unbelievably, it actually doesn’t require root thanks to an undocumented LG API that works on stock firmware 10C.

We have brought you news on multi-core mods that bring more control over the CPU before, but this is definitely unique. XDA Forum Member atipon has released an application called LG GearBox, which can change things like the device clock speed and the number of active cores without requiring root access. As atipon explains:

- Help extend your battery life.

– Manually control CPU speed and active cores

– Integrated with Power saver option in system settings.
Whenever your turn on Power saver, cpu and active cores will automatically adjusted.

It uses undocumented LG API, tested on stock firmware version 10C.

No root required

The application has had a few testers and has been reported working for users with and without root. It hasn’t had a lot of testing as of yet, though, so the old adage of your mileage may vary applies. As stated, though, more testing is required.
