First enable developer options.. Then if u have rooted ur phone , in the developer options u can see root access option select and press on apps and adb..! Den u will enable super su in settings above developer options go in that press on options button then select default access to prompt..! And that's it ..!

So... i'm just asking: it's the 2016 and in the app store there are many comments that say that the app it's not supported anymore. Is it a good app to use? There is/are an alternative to this one?
To this very day i have a very bad battery problem and this app seems a good compromise to resolve it.

Step 1: Download SetCPU from the market or get its via XDA-Dev

Step 2: Install it and allow SuperUser.apk to gain access

Step 3: Leave the settings alone on the main tab. Should be at the top of the max bar and the bottom of the min bar with ondemand selected in the scaling.

Step 4: Check "Set on Boot" on the main tab

Step 5: On the Profile tab, check "Enable" and "Notifications"

Step 6: Click "Add Profile" and add the following profiles

What this will do is change your CPU usage depending on the state of your phone.

The phone will be allowed to run on full power when on charge if needed.
When the screen is turned off the CPU will run between 245 and 384mhz
When the battery is below 30% the CPU will run between 245 and 384mhz

You should find this will save a ton of battery. I have had ebuddy running in the background for almost 5 hours with 3G connectivity and my battery is at 72%

You can get more juice from your battery is you use JuiceDefender.
Also, remember to add SetCPU in your task manager ignore list!

I'm writing this post to confirm that this method still works in 2017 and in Android 7 (still haven't got my hands on 8 will update this post if I do have the chance). Also for people who are wondering about ondemand not being present. It's because custom kernels are being bundled with the ROMs these days and many of those have governors which replace the stock ones (one of them is ondemand). In such a case I would recommend leaving the profiles with the governor which is set by default. That means leaving the value under scaling as it is, in SetCPU. Hope this helps somebody in the future stumbling upon this thread!

Easy to use app and useful thread........
The thread was very useful thank u..... One can change themax and min quantity according to them selves. If one doesn't do gaming then can change maz to 456. One can also create profiles of his own choices.
