There are several advantages on having a rooted device. One of them is that it allows you to install apps that would otherwise be barred by the device itself. The other advantage is that this allows you to do other fun things like making your device faster and/or more battery efficient. XDA member inteks has released a tool that he was working on for his Xperia Neo. Basically, this is like SetCPU but with a more dedicated focus on the Xperia devices. This program will allow you to change frequencies (overclocking), play with voltages (undervolting), and it also takes some . . . READ ON »

Well, it looks like development on the Samsung Wave is paying off rather nicely. In case, you haven’t been following the Bada scene, developers have successfully ported Android 2.2 (Froyo) and slapped it on top of Samsung’s proprietory OS in a project called Wavedroid. Well, now that Android is fully functional, tweaking efforts are underway. In this particular case, XDA member ispanecaaaa showed us how to overclock the device to about 1.6 GHz. Most of you Android users will be familiar with this process as it is done with setCPU. However, for this to work properly, a different image must . . . READ ON »

Do you know how dual core processors work? They contain two central processing units integrated into one circuit, just think of it as a four-lane highway as opposed to a two-lane one. Dual-core processors can handle twice as much data without making the processors themselves any faster.
XDA Recognized Developer mike1986. presented today the first HTC Sensation ROM capable of full dual-core support. Basically, this means that you will take full advantage of the new processor giving you more smoothness and perhaps a bit more of speed when you are multi tasking on your shinny Sensation. Moreover, the CPU is . . . READ ON »

If you are into playing with the settings that control the hardware and performance of your Android device, you are more than likely familiar with overclocking applications like SetCPU. Having said that, you probably have set a nice profile that would give you great performance as well as great battery life. However, do you know exactly what your processor is actually doing? XDA member storm717 had this idea that he put into an application where he could monitor the frequencies at which the processor runs at any given time and more importantly, for how long. The app will also display . . . READ ON »

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.
