HTC Incredible :: Are SetCPU Basic Settings A Placebo On Snapdragon?

Aug 25, 2010

Loved the app for the G1, since it was capped and setcpu got it to run at max speed. Ditto for Droid, since it was also capped and the OMAP had plenty of ceiling for more speed.The Snapdragon is already designed to dynamically scale from 245mhz to 1ghz, so what good are the settings, if Snap is already detecting resource needs and adjusting clock accordingly? This function is built into the die and seems no need for software augmentation.I appreciate insight, since some of the posts I have been seeing may suggest something that Snap already was designed to do and is built into the hardware.all of the needed polling that must happen through software for profile conditions may offset any gain as well. Seems inefficient managing via software, when the chipset already dynamically manages- unless Snap does a poor job in the first place.

HTC Incredible :: Apps2sd Is Apparently A Placebo

Oct 19, 2010

After testing both stock 2.1 and 2.2 and different rom bakes, the conclusion is that the Incredible for some reason does not really have "true" apps2sd (as define by Android). It appears that regardless of if most of an app is moved to the sd or not, the total available app space is nowhere near even the 748mb on device and the ceiling is actually around 500mb when "low on space" errors begin popping up.
Key example is when apps are shifted to the sd, the low on space error still happened, regardless of cache and message spaces being clean. I tested this with stock as well.The app install space is not to be confused with data downloads that some apps automatically install to sd (games like Quake, Nova, etc), but the actuall apps2sd move process in the app manager.It does not matter where the weight of the apps is installed, since whether having 300mb apps on the device and 200mb apps on the card results in the same thing as 500mb of apps on the device and 0mb apps on the sd- low on space is the result.On the Incredible, apps2sd is really app displacement. As a result, it is better not to use apps2sd, since saves space on the microsd card and makes no difference to the amount of apps you can install. Also, there is no way to get anywhere near the 748mb, yet alone having that much on the device and part of apps on the microsd (total would be a more than 748mb).

Motorola Droid :: SetCPU Advanced Settings?

Sep 1, 2010

The Sampling Rate, Threshold, etc. What do they mean and what are some optimal settings? I have mine untouched from whatever was stock with the app. Just curious if these settings were worth messing with unless you were advanced user, much like the settings themselves.

Motorola Droid :: SetCPU Profile Suggestions - Min / Max Settings

May 2, 2010

I just rooted today and downloaded Bugless Beast V1.0 ROM as well as the kernel that allows for overclocking up to 1Ghz. I'm playing around with SetCPU and wondering if anyone has any suggestions for the min/max settings within the profile. I don't want to fry my phone, so if there's someone with experience with a kernel with similar capabilities who would be so kind as to share his profile settings.

HTC Eris : Running Several Settings On SetCPU But Still Low Battery Life

Aug 16, 2010

I have tried several different Froyo Roms over the past very weeks. I still can't get any good battery life out of them compaired to running EE3.0. Yet everyone tells me they get better battery life while running Froyo. My phone has currently been unplugged for 9hrs 13 mins. It has a total of 50 mins talk time and I have sent 30+ text messages. My battery level is @ %73 running EE3.0

I can't get a total of 11hrs out of my phone when running any of the Froyo Roms. Ive tried running several different settings on SetCPU but nothing noticable. Only thing I notice is that when running Froyo the largest use of my battery is my Display. Yet when running EE3.0 the largest use is Cell Standby and Display is the lowest. But I have tried turning the brightness almost all the way down on the Froyo ROM but it doesn't make any difference.

Motorola Milestone :: SetCPU - Milestone Overclock Best Practice Settings

Jun 23, 2010

I have now been using the overclocking function for over a month and would like to report on the settings found to be most effective.

I use a combination of apps to achieve excellent battery consumption (1 1/2 days generally).

1. Screebl, set to 15 seconds.
2. Milestone Overclock, set to custom 1000 MHz @ 69 vsel
3. SetCPU general 1000/500 with charge 250/1000 and sleep 250/500

Ive found that the 125 MHz setting does not push enough juice to the radios and i sometimes get glitches with the touch panel/ dialler when SetCPUs ondemand governor is waking up to a call or 3g connection.

Also, the lowered vsel value of 69 seems to save a half day's battery as opposed to standard 1000 MHz/ 72 vsel offered by Milestone Overclock.

Screebl is a must for anyone who doesnt have it, as its simply the most effective battery manager out there. Would like a five seconds option though

HTC Incredible :: Talk To Type Lacking Basic Features

May 11, 2010

I am very impressed with Talk To Type's accuracy. It's great for chat and many informal things but seems to be missing some features that would have been very easy to implement.1. Automatic capitalization - no brainer - it should capitalize obvious proper names, the word "I" and the beginning of every sentence, or at least this should be an option. 2. Automatic punctuation - it should be an option to place a period at the end of each phrase (defined by when you stop speaking) and if the beginning word was "who", "what", "where", "when", "how", should be an option to automatically enter a question mark. I get that you can speak the name of the punctuation mark, but this option would make it more useful. 3. Numbers less than ten should be spelled out (e.g. "nine" instead of "9") It's so accurate compared to many that I've tried to use in the past, yet it doesn't have these super-basic and very easily implemented features. It makes it less useful for e-mail, especially corporate e-mail, where the mail needs to not resemble a high school text message.

HTC Incredible : How Batteries Work At Basic Quantum / Chemical Level

Aug 10, 2010

This is me writing what will amount to about 10 pages (at least that is what I plan) on how batteries work at the basic quantum and chemical level. I have been promising it for some time, and with everything coming to a close for the summer, I have time. So within the next could of weeks (2 or so), I will be filling in posts.

EDIT: I will be adding about 15 or so posts to expand into. I apologize for the over inflation of my post count, but there is no way I am editing 4 or so huge posts. Each section will have its own post or two. If the mods have any problem with it, please take it down and tell me how to do it to your liking, as many people have asked about this thorough walk through and explanation and thus I would like to do it. I honestly have no idea how long this will be as I have no idea the maximum post size. So I am going over and will ask mods to delete unused posts.

Please use the comments to make specific requests for info, and I will be happy to add it.

EDIT 2: Darn...I seem to have done all of this in the wrong section. Mod, would you please oblige? Tips and tricks, please? Or the regular forum, if that is where you think it fits best. Table of contents

HTC Incredible : New To Setcpu - Need Much Processor Power At All When Screen Is Off?

Sep 19, 2010

First of all the highest setting i can see is 998 max. Is this all that Virtuous 2.7 allows for? I'm on custom kernal

Next, Do i really need much processor power at all when screen is off? Why cant i just dial this way down so the battery is barely being used when screen is off? (how low can i go and still have no issues with email/messaging sync?)

Right now I have "screen off" profile set to 284/245. Is this why there is a bit of lag when unlocking? And is did i just answer my own question above? Meaning is this the reason why its not good to crank it way down during screen off?

HTC Incredible :: Increase Battery Life - Is SETCPU Working?

Oct 7, 2010

I rooted my phone about 2 days ago and I did a nandroid backup, titanium backup, used titanium backup to freeze some of the bloatware.. Have not yet installed any ROMs or Kernels. I got SetCPU and made several profiles in an attempt to increase my battery life. I wanted to see if it was working so I set up a widget, and despite the fact that my battery was at 20% (I have a <25% battery profile setting) the max was still 998

HTC Incredible :: Do I Need To Use SetCPU In Order To Overclock To Flash Kingxkernel?

Aug 27, 2010

I cant find anything about the question im asking. I am running SR 2.5.2 with OC hydrakernel #2. Im still new to rooting and kernels. So my question is if i flash kingxkernel do i need to use SetCPU in order to overclock? I know hydrakernel you dont and from what i see on just monitoring my cpu that it does in fact go up to 1.15 on its own. I want to flash kingxkernel and try it but dont know if it will just do its job or if i need increase the cpu once its on my phone. I like the way i dont have to mess with hydrakernel since i dont know much about the settings on setcpu.

HTC EVO 4G :: What Good Is 4G When The 1ghz Snapdragon Is Still?

HTC EVO 4G :: How Is The Hummingbird So Much Faster Than Snapdragon

Aug 15, 2010

I have been reading reviews of the Sprint Epic 4G with it's Hummingbird CPU and it is showing that CPU to be about 3 times as fast as the EVO Snapdragon even though both run at 1 Ghz. How is this possible? I thought 1 Ghz was 1Ghz?

Although I love my EVO, if I had known the Epic was coming to Sprint with the full Qwerty and such amazing specs I would have waited. Ah well, EVO still rocks but I'll never get used to virtual keyboards with my fat thumbs.

General :: Video Playback On Snapdragon S4?

May 25, 2012

I am currently using an HTC Sensation (with Snapdragon S3) and with h.264 videos, the limit for my phone is effectively at 1080p h.264 high profile level 5.1 with bit rate less than 10 Mbit/s. On my friend's One X, Tegra 3 can easily play 1080p videos up to 40 Mbit/s, which is very impressive. If the video playback capability of the Snapdragon S4 is on par with Tegra 3? Do you manage to get 40 Mbit/s videos to play on S4?

Android :: Hardware Keyboard - Snapdragon Processor

Nov 8, 2009

Replacing my current phone is three months away, February could not come soon enough. I will DEFINITELY be getting an android, no doubts about it. But what I'm wondering is if the following phone is being planned for the us.

Android 2.0 (or higher)
Hardware Keyboard (prefer a slider like droid, but I'm not picky)
Snapdragon Processor
Carrier doesn't matter

Yes, I'm aware that the droid meets almost all of those requirements, but I'm super picky. I appreciate anyone's help on this, I've been searching and having a fairly rough time locating one.
