(cpu thermal throttling mod)
Most popular mod for the G3 & G4 now here for the Nexus
Remember always make a full nandroid backup before doing anything

Please read entire op before asking questions
Rom & kernel developers please feel free to include in your work. Just please give proper credit thanks
Best used in conjunction with an over clocked kernel i.e. elemental x
Working to improve performance eliminate lag along with lowering the core temps allowing your phone to continue to run smoothly after long or heavy periods of use.
Thermal control works by throttling the CPU down to preset frequencies at preset temperatures and is also done in a preset # of steps. Thermals also monitor and play parts in controlling other components like the GPU, battery and a couple of other things.
First let me be clear about one thing
The CTTMod does not turn off thermal throttling. Now the trick of going into the hidden menu and turning thermal mitigation and thermal control on. That does turn off all thermal monitoring and control and I highly advise against ever doing it. You take a huge risk of frying your phone.
What I've done is changed the first frequency bump down of two in the little cluster and left the 2nd stock
And in the big cluster I changed the first and second frequency bump downs of three and left the third stock
I've also increased the temperature at which it resets by 5° in versions 4x
For more info on how thermal works along with how the governor affects performance you can check out my op for the CTTMod for the G3 here
1: Do a full nandroid back up
2: Back up your thermal file which is in system/etc ( thermal-engine.conf )
3: Flash mod and wipe cache
5: In your kernel control app like kernel auditor set your thermal driver to msm thermal or temperature limit SoC temperture limit depending on what you kernel offers
The idea in the above is to make the kernel use the system's stock thermal driver which is the one I modded
I personally also check all cores on
One final note this mod and xceed kernel do not work together as xceed has built in it's own thermal control. If you would like to use this mod with xceed kernel you would have to ask the developer of xceed to make a compatible version. Sorry out of my hands.
