CPU Temperature Monitoring with Custom Kernels on Galaxy S III
The Samsung Galaxy S III has been widely touted as one of the best Android devices currently available. As such, we here at the XDA Portal have been reporting on it extensively for quite some time. However, there are still some kinks to be worked out, even on this massively successful device, and one of those kinks just got fixed. Now, users can monitor their CPU temperatures in real time.
It seems like such a trivial thing, and no one can really explain why Samsung didn’t enable this in the first place, but that doesn’t matter anymore. XDA Recognized Contributor bala_gamer has posted a thread where users can enable CPU temp monitoring. The original method was discovered by XDA Senior Member viking37.
Initially it was thought that you had to have a stock kernel to get real time CPU monitoring, but after further research it appears as though all kernels support it. From there, you install System Tuner Pro with the Notifications Package. For more info, check out the original thread.
