CPU/GPU thermal throttling adjustment and overclocking?
Dear Letschky and other devs,
I'm kindly asking for your help regarding adjusting the sw thermal throttling of CPU/GPU on our Snapdragon 600 based G Pad. As per what I've read it seems that the thermal throttling on our pads is way too restrictive and as per experience from other devices utilizing SD600 it can be safely "cut-loose" as chips itself contain hw switch which powers-off the device in case of overtemperature.
I was able to find how to disable this termal throttling or set it to be less restrictive and don't underclock so heavily but I have been unable to adjust it as it seems that the system does not allow me to change the value required to adjust this preselected thermal throttling.
It should be just changing the values in file: \\sys\bus\platform\devices\kgsl-3d0.0\kgsl\kgsl-3d0 - and there is file called "min_pwrlevel". Opening it shows single value - in my case figure "3". In order to disable the thermal throttling its required to change it to "0" or if less drastic underclocking is required, just change it to "1" or "2". But my problem is I can not change the value permanently. If I edit the value the system does not allow me to save the change. Any help please? BTW I'm using ES File Explorer
On a sidenote - any tools on the horizon available which would allow under/over-clocking-volting of our CPU/GPU?
Many thanks for all replies in advance, with kind regards
