Android was always considered as a mobile operating system. While phones and tablets are over 95% of devices running Android, developers put lots of effort to make Google's OS available for other platforms. You've probably heard of Bluestacks, which brings the Android world to PCs, Macs and TVs. The American company is just one of the many brands that ports the Android OS to personal computers. In June 2014, the Console OS team launched its Kickstarter campaign for a system that...
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!

There are many things to love about the mobile industry, and when it comes to Android, I think one of them is that there's something for just about everyone. The OEMs of today cover many different demographics for those that want this, or that. And things like a phone's design aren't excluded either - but what I think is really interesting about this last bit is just how apparent the different approaches are. I'm not just talking about the aesthetics,...
