    I've kind of stalled out here - I downloaded Set CPU (haven't used it yet) but see that a good many of you are using CPU Boost - which is best? I'm a little more nervous with this step... Petrified of Icarus Lol

    Cpuboost has a nice "nitros" widget that will let you run at max when you want it. The only issue I have had is my setting switches to "on demand" after a while, but that may be because it's the free version.
    I recomend you try both and see what's best for you. Give it a couple days with setcpu, uninstall and try cpuboost and decide for yourself.

    What settings should I use with set cpu? There are so many to choose from. I'm currently using cpuboost and wanted to try something different. Thank you for your help.

    I understand that while using the stock CPU settings that the 'SMARTASS' Governor setting accomplishes the 'SCREEN ON/OFF' Profile.

    Does the stock CPU settings also automatically adjust for high temp or low battery situations?

    Just curious,because if it does,then I'd drop the additional CPU app as it wouldn't be necessary.

    I would assume so as I have never had any issues lol. I think some ppl just like having extra settings to mess with lol.

    I'm not one of them,I prefer to keep it simple.That was my reasoning for originally opting for CPU BOOST over SET CPU before these ROMS hit the scene.
    THX for the info,it does make sense, especially the high temp profile already being built-in as a safeguard & not having to make it a manually adjustable parameter.
    I just thought I'd try to keep using it,especially for tweaking the SCREEN ON/OFF profile to squeeze as much life out of the battery between charges.
