Are you ready to unleash the hidden Power of your HTC Hero??
many have used CPUOverclock, but faced a lot problems regarding Battery life, right? well, here is how you can balance it. and make the battery stay longer with the same performance
you also can configure Android internal task killer to boost your ROM even more http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=622666
NOTE: this guide requires that your phone is rooted !!
Step 1: you need 2 applications "Overclock widget" and "Spare Parts" << download both from Market.
Step 2: add "Overclock widget" to any homescreen. click on it then click on "Advanced Settings" and set the Frequencies as following:
check the "differ freq Screen .." button.
Min: 245760 << you can put it to 128000 to save more battery, but lagges Music sometimes.
go down the list and click on "Save"..
Finally, Step 3: (not needed on 2.x ROMs)
go to the app "Spare Parts" and find "End Button Behavior" and set it to "Go to Sleep"..
you are done
Explanation: HTC made the CPU at 384 MHz and automatically overclock to 528 MHz if needed (both screen ON or OFF). this actually affects the Usability of the Phone
this method will make the CPU at best when screen is ON, and saves a looooot of battery when screen is OFF.
Statistics: using SoftWeg Benchmarking app (in the market) :
Stock ROM 2.73:
CPU total score: 125-130
Modaco ROM 3.0:
CPU total score: 121-130 << that's why I changed back to rooted Stock 2.73
Stock 2.73 with this method:
CPU total score: 170-178 !!!
kaguDroid 1.2.1 with this method:
CPU total score: 220-282 !!!
I used it on KaguDroid1.2 and the Live wallpapers performed better and no lagges .. but I forgot to take benchmarks numbers
GPU benchmarks were improved too, but I focused on CPU more.
I'm in the process of making an Eclair ROM with SenseUI (that supports Arabic) and if someone could help me make the Kernel perform like this by default without this method, please PM me ASAP !!!
