I did all that nonsense , no more oc it check my temp everything is good. with quad core cpu you really don't need to max it out. same with tablets, stock is fine for the things we use it for. rooting it is for people that develop software or os to improve it. someone lame like me would never root nor should they . that's what I was trying to get across with why root this tablet its fine the way it is.
My post went completely ignored by you didn't it?
Not everything is as seem to think it is and just cause you've done it doesn't mean you are experienced with it either.
My stock cooler would let my CPU go up to 70 degrees on stock clocks and the voltage being fed to the CPU was closing on 1.45v, when I looked at this and knowing it can run at 1.3v or less at stock clocks its outrageous.
I changed to a different cooler for silence and increased cooling ability, lowering the AUTO voltage to manual at 1.4 gave me a 4.1Ghz clock on CPU while having reduced temperatures/increased speed vs stock cooler/stock clock/stock voltage.
Regardless of any of this I purchased my cooler after I built my computer cause the AMD stock cooler is too loud.
I am rooted on both my cellphone and my nexus, I downclocked/undervolted my cellphone to gain increased battery life. Why? The phone had too much performance for what I asked of it and I rather have battery life.
My nexus? I rooted to change GPS settings, prevent any unwanted task from consuming RAM/Battery life and to disable the Tegra 3 "smart dimmer" that gave me awful colors.
By your line of thoughts you shouldn't have Admin access on your computer, you don't need it. Or do you?
I don't even need to be rooted to overclock my phone/tablet... There's plenty of kernels to do that, just gotta flash a zip.So please see if you understand, rooting!=overclockingI'm sorry if it sounds harsh
Edit: And you said that rooting is for people that develop software/OS to improve it. What if I use root access to improve my personal experience with my device? To optimize the device/OS to my needs?Edited by Tokkan - 8/3/13 at 4:47am
