Open system menu by dialing 3845#*980#, go down the list, find items "High temperature property OFF" and "Thermal mitigation daemon OFF", check them both to Enabled ON state. PROFIT! I don't know maybe the reboot is needed or not. But with thermal mitigation daemon disabled you can achieve as high as 24700 in Antutu and the screen would not dim in hot conditions anymore

And of course don't forget that if you damage your phone somehow by overheating it or shorten you battery capacity its not us to blame. Be a reasonable guy with your hardware

Of course tweak can be applied to any LG Phone, say to E970, for example

So this doesn't increase the cpu speed from 1700 to 1900? How fast will the cpu run to achieve 24000+ score on Antutu?

Now, it won't automatically go higher than 1700, it merely will not drop to 1100 or whatever speed stated in thermal.conf in case of matching thermal threshold and just will continue to work on 1700. In fact I don't think it will somehow "damage" SoC, it's just meant to save your hand from holding 50°C device while gameplaying

No, can not, I use on 50% brightness so it never get hot and therefor never dim on me

Thanks for this! Always wondered why this phone stayed so cool. Benchmarks are higher, games run smoother and so far it looks like the occasional but horrible home screen lag I get while using live wallpaper (any launcher) seems to be gone so far.
I'm cautiously optimistic that this will fix the lag, but I'm sure you're right, it seems like the phone randomly idles some cores causing the lag. Hopefully we see some custom kernels for this device soon.
Thanks again.

Notice in the last screen shot how Antutu usually warms the phone up to the point where it only runs at 1.1 ghz. Also in quadrant, I'd get anywhere between 11000 and 8000 in testing, now it is consistently in the 12000 range. Awesome!

Because the setting is to turn off the thermal control. So by checking the box to on you are turning it off. It will always say off, as long as the box is set to on then it is working.
