Who doesn't want their phone to run more efficiently? With SetCPU for Root Users, you can tweak the speed of your Android phone. With this tool, you can change the CPU settings on your phone to improve performance or save battery life. SetCPU also allows you to set up profiles to change the CPU speed under certain conditions, such as when the phone is asleep or charging, when the battery level drops below a certain point, or when the phone's temperature is too high.

SetCPU for Root Users features a revamped user interface, including a new background for the easy-to-use widget. New notification icons make it easier for you to quickly scan your phone's current performance levels. There is a priority swap button to help you quickly move between profiles. There has also been a significant improvement to the reliability of auto-detect on certain kernels.

More specifically, it allows control of certain aspects of the Linux cpufreq driver, allowing for overclocking, underclocking, or tweaking speeds and settings on many Android devices.

Don't like to buy from Amazon. Out of date version. Otherwise a decent app. The developer also is not helpful in assisting in this matter. To think I paid to get an outdated app!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for root users March 22, 2011
One of the main reasons I decided to root my Droid 1. Overclocking is really easy and straightforward, as well as there being many other more advanced settings. A must have!

1.0 out of 5 stars Long out of date... May 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
Pros: it works

Cons: current version is 3.1.2 right now and if you want this then just get the free download of it off XDA

Summary: I bought to support the guy for making this cool app and know what my thanks for supporting someone is? Absolutely nothing... this is the same out of date free version on the XDA forums just google "setcpu" and you'll find it, I probably should've read a few reviews first but as stated above I wanted to support the guy, welp not doing that again..... seriously all I ask is for the latest update, its not that hard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic app! March 22, 2011
This app has been a lifesaver for my EVO. Love setting up the profiles to automatically adjust CPU based upon status. If you are rooted, this is a must!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works
I was hoping to overclock a dog slow tablet. This didn't do that, but does do a good job keeping it running as fast as it can with the cpu's factory clock speeds.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Extra
I purchased this thinking it would give me extra options but found it did the same as the free version, so I wouldn't recommend spending anything on it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Refund please!
This app does NOT work on my phone. It crashes after a minure and offers no increase to my CPU speed. What a waste!

Custom ROM needed?
You will need a custom kernel that allows voltage control. SetCPU should run on any ROM with such a kernel.

Screen Shot It? Something's wrong
SetCPU. They do need to fix the description. But both programs are great and worth your time.
