Hello everyone!
Performance Control is A CPU Control application bundled with AOKP (created by xoomdev).

I started modding and adding features to this application, with @educk, few months ago and now we decided to create a dedicated thread.

Functions:

  • Change CPU Governor, I/O Scheduler and Clock Speed
  • Battery information + Fast Charge setting + Battery Life eXtender setting
  • Change Voltages Assigned to each CPU frequency
  • Customize MinFree Task Killer (set the amount of RAM the minfree taskiller will keep), Not Killable Processes feature
  • Customize SD read-ahead
  • VM Settings such as: Dirty Ratio, Dirty Backgroud ratio, Dirty expire centisecs, Dirty writeback centrisecs, Minfree kbytes, Overcommit ratio, Swappiness and VFS Cache pressure, Dynamic Fsync, Backlight timeout, Backlight on touchscreen, Phantom Key Presses Filter
  • Integrated CPU Spy
  • Linux Kernel informations, CPU Informations, Memory Informations
  • Disk Informations
  • Tools: Custom shell command, Wipe cache+dalvik cache, Flash kernel or recovery (img files), Clean residual files, Optimize DBs

Depending on the kernel used, some application features will not be accessible, like: Voltage settings, Battery Life eXtender, etc

Requirements:
  • Root
  • Busybox
  • CM or other AOSP like ROM based on 4.0+ (tested only on 4.2.2.& 4.3)

For kernel developers:
Dynamic Fsync
Not Killable Processes
VDD Sysfs Interface - MSM7x30 boards

SGS3 support in future? because it looks pretty good and i wanna test.

Sent from my girls pants via Tapatalk IV
The app will work on any Android device which meets the requirements from the first post.
The only thing which currently doesn't work on SGS3 is the kernel and recovery flash. We will add this support for the SGS3 in the next release.

Voltage Settings and Battery tab missing because your kernel. If your PerformanceControl is a system app you must replace it not just install.

Clean residual files delete files from "/data/log","/data/tombstones","/data/system/dropbox","/data/system/usagestats","data/anr"
EDIT: if you want to use PerformanceControl app you must deselect CM performance.
