    Ok, I have seen many people suggesting setCPU to people who are wanting to overclock their phones. They also say they have to buy it off the market. Now, I am not saying that donating to the developer is a bad thing, because I myself have done it, but you can get setCPU for free from the developer over at forum.xda-developers.com.

    I just don't want people thinking they HAVE to buy something to get control over something as sensitive as this.

    Here is the link to the official thread:

    SetCPU for Root Users [1.5.1a] 04/02/2010

    Or you can donate to the developer by buying it here:

    It's too bad they upped the price to $1.99. I know it isn't much still, but I still think more people would be willing to donate at the old price.

    If you're gonna try it and see, get the free one, by all means and give it a whirl.

    If you're gonna actually keep using it, donate, and support the developer efforts that make it possible for you, to paraphrase from the OP, to have something to get control over something as sensitive as this.

    OMG!

    I can't believe I spent that entire $2 when I could have gotten it for free!

    For the pleasure the app give me with this great phone, I'm good.

    I don't know if the dev gets a large portion of the cost with the market, but I say, buy from the market and let the dev get what they deserve.

    Hey, I just didn't want people feeling obligated to buy something since there isn't a free alternative. I feel the same way as you, it is just two bucks, but there are others who feel different.

    Oh and I just wanted to point out that when you eat at a restaurant, you don't really have to tip the wait staff!!:icon_ banana:

    Yes, but by not tipping the wait staff do you run the risk of your phone frying?

    I was just trying to point out to everyone recommending setCPU that you can just point them towards that thread and let them choose if they want to donate or not.

    No need for sarcastic jokes...

    And when they give sub-par service, I dont.

    Of course, SetCPU rocks, so Im more than happy to shell out the $2.

    We're talking about $2 here. If it's gonna break the bank, then do some research and see what other users are saying. Personally, I haven't seen anyone write anything bad about it. I bought it, and after using it, if I had to renew it ever year for more money, I would. Stop being so cheap. You have an expensive phone, it comes with a cost. would you take your Ferarri to Wal-Mart for an oil change?

    Where did I come off as being cheap? I also never said anything bad about it. I was just pointing something out to the community.

    I never said STOP DONATING TO THIS GUY HIS APP STINKS, but that people should know they don't have to buy something when it is a few clicks away for free.

    How would you like to have known after you bought that soda, that you could have gotten one for free? Yea the soda was good and it is only 99 cents, but you could have gotten that same soda for free, and you could have used that 99 cents on a pack of gum.

    I don't see no harm in trying to save a few people a couple dollars... They will most likely end up donating to the developer anyway since it IS a good app that many people would be hopeless without...
