    Just so you guys know even if you device is rooted this still might not work, you have to have a OC'able kernel (ROM)

    It makes the CPU (processor) perform faster. In other words it makes your phone faster:smile:

    Mine is **** slow, but it already gets extremely hot when talking and playing games. I'd love to do this, but I might not.

    Not really, if you don't OC too high that wouldn't happen. Just don't over due it, look search through Google for the recommended governor and the frequencies. mine are min: 480 Max: 748 on Smartass governor and only difference is that it's faster.

    I know it's already been answered, but I can't help myself haha. If you overclock your CPU to much it will give you shorter battery life, but if you're only going to OC a little then it is fine. Another thing to consider is the heat that will be emitted from your CPU, if your phone already gets hot when you are playing games are talking to somebody, it's not a great idea to OC it.

    Just google your phone model and see what other people have deemed stable for maximum Hz. If you're just trying to get rid of scrolling/menu lag then increasing the minimum Hz can help without increasing your maximum.

    This only works if you have an overclocking kernel installed..by default android(2.0+)makes changes to cpu speed based on usage to conserve battery. With the release of Jelly Bean (4.1) and thanks to project butter, your phones processer will automatically increase the cpu to maximum when your finger is touching the screen and then go back down to slower speeds when idle to save even more battery then the original method did. This app lets you change those ranges..only if you have the right kernel..otherwise..this could brick your device :wink:

    It is also unnecessary with newer versions of Android.


    If you really want to, do not have it so your phone goes through more then 8 different frequences, this app lets you select a range, but with other more intuitive cpu overclocking apps let you select each mhz the phone goes to in a range, any more then 8 causes major instablity, and again, bricking

    Also the OP fails to mention the installation requires you go into settings> applications and enable unknown sources to install applications you download.

    Or else it will pop up and say "install failed"
