"Not suitable for non-root"

Reviewed by / May 24, 2012

NSTools is a system manager app for rooted devices

Well, for rooted devices with specific conditions: it works only on custom kernel with Ezekeel's mod, that's it, some Nexus S and Galaxy S kernels (check developer's description out).

Have you ever wondered what you will be able to do if you were root? This app partly answers that question. NSTools is a superuser system manager. It allows you to adjust tweak parameters, CPU, voltage and some other settings. Do it at your own risk.

From Tweak you can enable fast charge, black light notification, touchwake, led timeout, active IO scheduler. What's more, you can adjust CPU frequency, Live OC values, deep idle among many other options. You can also adjust voltage (we don't recommend it if you don't have a deep knowledge on it). Finally, advanced settings tab from where you can enable "persist settings across reboots", use init.d script and BLN. As you can see the app is for high-profile users: we insist, use it at your own risk.

The app is set in a good-looking layout Holo-like (ICS layout). Highly recommendable for advanced root users.

Developer's original description available here
The permission read contacts is used for detect missed call. You can check the source code on my github to make sure this app don't read/send your contacts data.

NSTools need superuser (a.k.a root) and also custom kernel with Ezekeel's mod.

Currently works on:
Nexus S (kernel: GLaDOS, Matr1x, franco, SG-kernel, Eugene, Trinity, Netarchy, Lucid, Air, Lynx, etc.)
Galaxy S (kernel: Glitch v14)

With NSTools you can easily manage these tweaks:
- CPU Governor
- Custom Voltage
- Deepidle
- Liveoc
- Max/min scaling frequencies
- Touchwake
- CMLed
- IO Scheduler
- Fast charge toggle

Your settings will stick on reboot, don't need to edit init scripts.

If something bad happenned and you want to reset NSTools settings, visit my thread on XDA to get reset_nstools.zip

Please don't report/complain bug on comments, because I can't reply your comments. Send me an email or visit NSTools thread on XDA

    Why does this app need to read my call log? Like the app but it does not need that permission. Un install
