i'm on stock rooted and tryen many apps like setcpu but without success.
monitoring the cpu with PERFMON
only cpu0 seem to reduce frequency and not all other 3 cores... and for a small amount of time
after some seconds all 4 cores return at max freq.

anyone have success in underclocking and what app use?
or i need a custom kernel? and in case how about a stable one?

Overclocking is simple on any of the AOSP ROMs

with mpdecision OFF all core do underclok but core1-3 NOT GO TO SLEEP when not used!!!

You need to run a kernel that supports overclocking/underclocking for best results on stock roms. AOSP Roms tend to come with a custom kernel that has this functionality.
