CoreControl

Only for users with ROOT ACCESS


(Screenshots show the battery profiles changing the core count)

This application will allow you to control how many cores are active on your phone!
Is your One X getting a little hot or is the battery running out a little too quick? This application attempts to solve these problems by allowing you to disable some of the processor's cores!

Battery Profiles Info (Please Read!)
[Battery Profiles will override whatever number is selected by the buttons at the top!]
First of all, this is nothing more than a proof of concept update. I realise that having a set number of profiles isn't the best idea and people will want to be able to change the cores on heat as well as battery level. There is also screen-off and charging profiles that need to be done. The layout is definitely not final either and will be changed in the next updates. I will try my best to incorporate these functions as well as others that have been requested.
Second, the 3 battery level values you can edit (in the Battery Profiles section) MUST go in descending order (e.g. 100, 80, 50, etc). The app will check for this.
The Battery profiles should take effect instantly.
Please expect bugs. This update is very much a proof of concept and whilst the battery profiles function correctly in my testing, bugs may very well arise.

Known Bugs
Very occasionally it will revert to the default of 4 cores when using the battery profiles. I've only ever seen this happen once and I have no idea what caused it.
Voltage is not currently colour-coded (I don't know the min/max levels)
Temperature is not fully colour-coded. Anything below 40C will be Green and anything above will be Red. More colours will be added when I know the Max battery temperature and I can work out good colour ranges.

Original thread - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1630200

I highly recommend you install TegraStats - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1615666 (or search 'Tegrastats Free' on the market) - to monitor how many are active.

If the file doesn't exist for you, try this fix!

Changelog
Code:
v1.4.2
Hopefully fixed the pointless and repeated request for SU access

v1.4.1 [BETA]
Only ever asks for Root Access when changing cores
Added CPU temperature and frequency (Many thanks to Treebill!)
 - WARNING: The frequency jumps around a lot. I don't know if the file is buggy or this is actually happening
 - CPU temp and frequency only ever update when CoreControl is open. This will obviously be changed when CPU temperature profiles are introduced
 - CPU temp is fully colour-coded
Battery Temperature is now fully colour-coded (Many thanks to Treebill!)
General code clean up and optimisation

v1.4 [BETA]
Added Battery Profiles
 - See "Battery Profiles Info" above
Should get and display Battery Information quicker

v1.3
UI Changes
Added a 'Battery Information' Sliding Drawer with the following information:
  - Battery Health
  - Power Type [USB/AC/Battery]
  - Battery Charge [With Battery state, Charging, Full, etc.]
  - Battery Temperature
  - Battery Voltage
It's all colour-coded too!
Battery Profiles are pretty much fully coded, they're not included in this release though. Should be done by next update.

v1.2
Removed pointless code
Quite a few UI changes
Active Cores can now be set on boot (last one selected will be used).

v1.1
Removed pointless "1 Core" option
Disabling/Enabling cores should be quicker (slightly)

V1.0
Initial Release
Enjoy!

How doesn't it work? Does it force close, throw an error message or just not do anything?

Really? That's what I'm running at it works fine

Edit: Added a potential fix for the missing file in the OP. I've not tested it personally, so I don't know for definite that it works. I'll test it out properly tomorrow and if it works I'll integrate it into the app

it'd be cool if you could add a way to make it automatically turn off cores when your phone got to a certain battery percentage.
