Can I in any way whatsoever disable thermal throttling?
It just bugs me that I can't play any intense game due to severe frame drops. I would love to have the option of disabling the thermal throttling, but I got no idea how. Could you please help me?

Is there any other way?
I can't understand how to flash my device or install custom ROMs, and Im afraid that I'll accidentally damage something.

I don't think so, thermal throttling definitely has to do with the kernel and you certainly have to face that.
Just saying, why have a Nexus in the first place if you're afraid of / can't understand flashing?

Well, I guess you're right.
Would those three guides be a proper start for me? I just dont want to brick my phone.

...I think it would be better off to start from the stickies in the dev subforum.

Yes you can disable thermal throttling BUT you need a custom kernel. Also even with the throttle off , once your phones CPU hits a certain temp 120c I believe , it'll shut down . and I guarantee that playing any game that taxes your phone will hit this temp if the throttle is off .
Simply put its not really a good idea , start with a custom kernel that can over clock the CPU and GPU and you should be OK , leave the throttle alone :thumbup:
