Simple Xposed Module Puts CPU Temp in Status Bar

As our mobile devices become more and more similar to our fully fledged desktop computers every day, we are paying more attention than ever to their internal hardware. After all, it wasn’t all that long ago that a quad-core 2.3 GHz processor or 2 gigs of RAM was considered state of the art in the desktop realm.

With the increased processing power available on our mobile devices, it’s nice to be able to keep tabs on the state of their internal hardware. This is especially useful given the high amount of thermal throttling in modern mobile SoCs. As such, XDA Recognized Contributor m11kkaa created a simple status bar CPU temperature monitoring app that installs as an Xposed module.

Since this is an Xposed module, you will need to have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed. Once installed, you are able to configure where the notification shows up, as well as the update interval.

Unfortunately, due to this module being relatively fresh out of the oven, compatibility is a little touch and go. For example, I was not able to get this to work on my Nexus 7 2013 with Xposed 2.3 installed, but it worked just fine for others in the module’s thread, and the developer is actively trying to add support for more devices. In any case, if you’re looking for a lightweight CPU temperature monitor, it’s worth a shot. Hopefully it’ll work for you. And if it doesn’t, there is a built in debugging feature that outputs information that you can send the developer.

You can learn more in the module thread.
