    Hi All,

    I have a probably silly and stupid question. I did the sbf file to bring my phone back to stock (I have to give my phone to a family member, long story). Anyway, when I did the sbf file it recovered all my apps, and one of them was SetCPU.

    SetCPU won't run unless it has root access correct? I mean the fact that it was installed (and then uninstalled) it can't change anything without root access to the device correct?

    Thanks all for humoring me.

    It can be installed on any device but it will not actually work unless you have root access.

    You can set up a new Gmail account when you initialize the phone so your old market apps do not keep popping up.

    Correct, it's not able to actually change anything without root access. Don't worry about it, can't do any harm.
