Harness The Power of OCD on Your Android Smartphone’s OC
If you’re anything like the rest of us ORDers, you’re a fan of XDA forum member coolbho3000‘s wonderful SetCPU utility. However, while SetCPU lets you create and specify over-clocking profiles, the list of profile entry conditions is a bit sparse.
Luckily, Android’s many automation utilities excel at creating and executing condition-based commands. Using Tasker as his reference, XDA forum member brandall has compiled all of the relevant information that you need to get started with profile-based CPU control.
