Mechanical and mechatronics engineers may want a handy app to calculate data for drilling, milling and turning. If you're part of those, you might have searched the Play store only to give up after not finding anything useful. Fortunately, XDA Recognized Developer laufersteppenwolf found himself in that same situation, but decided to fix it by making an app to calculate what he needed. CutCalc is a simple calculator that makes tasks mechanical engineers need on a daily basis much easier,...
The Configurator Makes Many Modifications to Many Phones
Most devices have a plethora of dedicated developers. People who make ROMs, Mods, Tweaks and even Tools. However, some phones aren’t so lucky and don’t get a lot of developer support. In either case, there are still those out there who develop things for everybody.
This is the case with The Configurator. It’s a tool made by XDA Senior Member smokin1337 that can be used on any phone with busybox installed and it can do a great number of things. The features are ridiculous, and some of them can even replace apps you may have already been using. They include:
1. Set CPU Governor
2. Set Max CPU Frequency
3. Set Min CPU Frequency
4. Undervolt CPU (If Available)
5. Multiple Tweaks
6. Enable/Disable Virtuous OC (Developed by rmk40)
7. Configure Virtuous OC
8. Enable/Disable The Configurator
9. Optimize Mounts
10. Enable/Disable SD Read Ahead
11. Backup Apps
12. Restore Apps
13. Backup Configurator Settings
14. Restore Configurator Settings
15. Enable/Disable Cleanup
16. Set I/O Scheduler
More tweaked settings
So, basically, this tool takes all the things any root user should need and bundles them up in a nice, complete package for anyone to use. Based on the dates on the change logs, the application is also well supported so any newly discovered features could make their way to this application as well.
For anyone who wants to try it, you can find it in its original thread along with instructions for use, downloads and update information. As per the norm, users should make complete backups before using or applying anything from the app, just in case something goes wrong!
