Product Description

SetCPU for Root Users – Overclocking your rooted device lets you speed up your phone’s processor when you are using it and lets you slow it down when it goes into "sleep" mode. It can either be a battery hog or battery saver.

SetCPU is a tool for changing the CPU settings (capable of overclock and underclock) on a rooted Android phone, including the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Droid, Nexus One, G1, G2, Samsung Galaxy S II, myTouch 4G, Motorola Xoom, or one of many other devices to improve performance or save battery.

SetCPU also allows you to set up powerful 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, when the phone's temperature is too high, or during certain times of day. See the screenshots for examples of how you might set up profiles.

SetCPU's wide feature set make it useful to beginners and enthusiasts alike. Accelerate your processor to unleash your phone's multitasking potential, or dial your CPU's speed down to save battery.

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 Out of date version.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 To think I paid to get an outdated app!!

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 this is the same out of date free version on the XDA forums just google "setcpu" and you'll find it, I probably should've read a few reviews first but as stated above I wanted to support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.

Why haven't you updated this app? It is so far behind the play store version. Or please refund us.... I would not suggest buying.

Was looking to get a little more than 2 hours from my zeepad, even when I was in airplane mode. Worked great on the zeepad set the hi to something less than 500Mhz and low to something less than 100Mhz, which is fine for the apps I run, (they probably would run fine on a 50Mhs win98 machine). Also set to airplane mode and backlight to minimum. Now I get about 4 hours of game playing. Along with an external battery pack I should be able to get 6-7 hours from it.

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!

This app hasn't been updated in a long time. Google's app is always kept up to date... don't waste your money here.
