SetCPU for Edge

SetCPU for Edge is a CPU speed tweaking application for entourage (pocket) edge,which works in the way discovered by ConteMascetti .


How to use it?
1.root your PE with Z4root;
2.install SetCPU for Edge;
unzip the apk from the attachment,copy it ito your PE;
click the apk in you PE to install the application;
3.It's not a standlone app but a widget, you can add the widget into your home screen by doing the following:
a. From the Home or Applications screen, press the Menu button.
b. Tap Add.
c. Tap Widgets.
c. Select "SetCpu x.x.x" to add.
4.click on the widget ,it will switch the cpu between "tablet mode"(op4,797MHz @ 1,0 Vcore voltage) and "reader mode"(op0,156MHz @ 0,945 Vcore voltage,indicated by a book icon)..When the "app asking for root permission" dialog is displayed,select "yes".

btw,it's an ugly widget.

release 0.1.1:
bug fix:
In my PE,if I set the cpu to reader mode and then put it into hibernation,then wake it up,click the widget to switch the cpu to tablet mode,the device will halt.However if I switch the cpu back to tablet mode before hibernation,everything seems ok.
This is fixed by using op2 as an interim between every switch.

If I turn off the screen while I use the PE am I not stretching the battery life as well if not better than if I install this program?

Hi birdheh,it's not clear how this can help with saving power yet.

I think , 156Mhz can help use to have 2 hour of extra battery life in reader mode

I do not understand why on nook str I have 14+days of reading. I understand with cpu low and eink only we should get a lot of juice. an idea, something like putting the device on hibernation. on next or prev page taking if of hibernation than putting it back (i think I am talking rubish, but is frustrating the low battery life of this device in reading only mode.

root denied

Hi there. It doesn't seem to work with the latest Superuser (binary 3.0.3). It isn't prompting me; it's just denying it access. Is this a setting I'm missing or is it just a bug?

@javese,

Installed, superuser allowed, widget added; however when clicking on the widget...nothing. Is there supposed to be a message or setting?

Specs: EE (2.0), ermine .9, Z4 permanent root.

Forgot to add - using PE, ermine, rooted. (Obviously rooted, duh.)
