    Yes.

    If you have the stock kernel, you have to hit menu and disable perflock in order to change the clockspeeds.

    IMO, yes. I have mine set to 245 min, so when it goes to sleep the CPU goes down to 245 mhz...

    If I've got Drods 1.5GHz kernel I don't need to do any of that right?

    Sweet Thanks very much!


    Wow... just got it and set the profile while charging to max performance and got 2497 for a Quadrant score. Was only touching 2300 previously

    I just did the root and debloat as presented in the stickied threads here (thanks all). Is there a dummy's guy for CPU management? This sounds like I have to flash a custom ROM and do some serious hacking...

    Honestly setcpu doesn't save any battery for me. If anything after root and debloat I'm using more battery.

    The numbers don't lie. I'm putting more mA now than I was a few days ago.

    after deleting programs that are using battery and setting profiles on setCPU, im sorry but you would not be using more battery life.

    Someone else should see how much mA they're putting on stock then see how much on rooted/debloat/setcpu.

    One thing I don't understand. After root, with stock kernel and rom, can I oc the cpu using setcpu? I have it loaded and did the perflock disabler but the max I can do is still the 1024. Anyway to make it go higher without roms kernels and the like?

    no you cannot overclock on stock kernel, its set to 1024 max, youd have to flash another kernel

    i have mine set to those numbers as well...just out of curiosity, do you think there are any consequences for keeping it to such low mgz?

    get a kernel with smartass and you won't need profiles in setcpu.

    To b honest I like setcpu on my phone. It makes me feel as if I'm in control over the device, not just some program.

    But I do have a vague understanding what smartass is. Can anybody clarify?...

    It's someone who gives an obviously wrong answer to a question...but that's not important right now.

    It does everything that setcpu profiles are meant to do automatically. For example, with smartass, when you turn the screen off, it will automatically keep the max scaling value way down.
    It basically falls between good performance and good battery life.

    Here's some info on how the Smartass Governor works:

    What are you guys using for advanced settings?

    I find that the best profiles to make are ones for charging (where I usually max out the CPU of my phone), battery (I lower the clock to a max of 500-700mhz, depending on the kernel, to save battery if it's under 30%), and temperature (lower the clock speed to cool down the phone if it gets pretty hot [45ish C]).

    SetCPU works LIKE A BOSS!

    These are my settings (speeds listed as min/max):

    Screen Off (245/245) Priority 100
    Temp > 45C (245/368) Priority 90
    Charging (1408/245) Priority 80
    Battery < 21% (245/245) Priority 70
    Battery < 41% (245/768) Priority 60

    All of them governed by OnDemand

    Normal operation is in OnDemand, 245/1408

    It took me 2 days to realize I needed to disable perflock to adjust the speed. Doh!
