ROM Manager

ATTENTION: I have started the rollout of ClockworkMod Recovery 5 for some devices. It will have faster tar backups, and will properly preserve the filesystem type at time of backup. If CWR5 fails to flash try flashing again, that usually fixes it (bad flash). If you have any issues with CWR5, feel free to roll back to the previous version, and report the bug to me at koush@clockworkmod.com!


ROM Manager is THE MUST HAVE APP for any Android root user. (Over 3 million downloads and counting!)

* Flash your recovery to the latest and greatest ClockworkMod recovery.
* Manage your ROMs via a handy UI.
* Organize and perform backups and restores from within Android!
* Install ROMs from your SD card.
* Install your favorite ROMs over the air!

Premium Version:
* Premium ROMs
* Receive notifications for when your ROM is updated!
* Automatic backups
* Install from QR Code
* Web Connect
* Support

Why does ROM Manager ask for account permissions?
Web Connect only needs to access your Google account to connect it to your google account. It can't access any private data or passwords.


Troubleshooting:
Droid users: Stuck at the "M" logo? Flash an alternate recovery and flash back to ClockworkMod.
HTC Users: Flash recovery not working? Try fastbooting a recovery on.
Droid X/2/Pro Users: You must run the Bootstrap application first to use ROM Manager.
Samsung users: You must flash a Clockwork compatible kernel first (see XDA forums)

IF YOU ARE HAVING LICENSE ISSUES, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE LATEST VERSION OF FREE (4.0+) AND THE LATEST LICENSE (1.0.7+) INSTALLED!

SetCPU for Root Users

SetCPU is a tool for changing the CPU settings (capable of overclock and underclock) on a rooted Motorola Droid, Nexus One, G1, G2, Samsung Galaxy S, myTouch 4G, Motorola Xoom, or one of many other devices to improve performance or save battery.

SetCPU also allows you to set up powerful profiles to change the CPU speed under certain conditions, such as when the phone is asleep or charging, when the battery level drops below a certain point, when the phone's temperature is too high, or during certain times of day. See the screenshots for examples of how you might set up profiles.

SetCPU's wide feature set make it useful to beginners and enthusiasts alike. Accelerate your processor to unleash your phone's multitasking potential, or dial your CPU's speed down to save battery.

SetCPU also includes a "voltage control" menu, for use with certain devices with custom kernels that support it, to control undervolting to save even more battery. Keep in mind that undervolting is only available for certain kernels.

Have an HTC Sense device with a stock ROM or kernel? If you are having trouble getting your settings to "stick," press Menu > Disable Perflock. You still have to be rooted.

Galaxy S devices: conservative scaling is recommended where it is used by default (ondemand on the Nexus S and Galaxy S II). There are issues with Galaxy S kernels that may result in crashes if some other scaling governors are used, or if the sleep profile "max" value is set too low.

More flexible profile options and revamped interface coming soon!

Recent Changes:
2.2.4 - Improved support for the new MSM 8x60 devices (such as the HTC EVO 3D and Sensation).

2.2.3 - Fixed an issue where the voltage menu displayed frequencies backwards on certain devices capable of voltage control. Added support for additional CPU temperature sensors.

2.2.1 - Fixed the voltage force close bug on some Galaxy S devices by adding undervolt support for older Galaxy S undervolt kernel patches. Added perflock disabler support for HTC kernel 2.6.35.9 (beta).

2.2.0 - Added an "In Call" profile. Improved the Set on Boot safemode function by including a flashable zip that toggles SetCPU's safemode. Press menu on the main tab for more details. Added autodetect support for all Tegra 2 fakeShmoo kernels (ie. G2x). Added a "Voltage" tab for undervolting the CPU on fakeShmoo kernels, some custom Galaxy S kernels, and some Nexus S kernels. This is a full-fledged interface for undervolting these devices, and includes backing up and restoring and a Set on Boot checkbox. Improved the way SetCPU initially requests root. Various miscellaneous bugfixes.

Recent changes:
2.2.4 - Improved support for the new MSM 8x60 devices (such as the HTC EVO 3D and Sensation).
