Works Great! Installed on stock rooted Z1 and works without any issues. Great app, nice and polished. Don't listen to the noobs giving low scores because they do not understand *YOU NEED TO BE ROOTED NOOBS*

Engelbird Humperdick

what the hell??!?! The app keeps crashing whenever i activate pen mode or any other mode. my unit is sony xperia z1 and my OS is 4.4.4. what the hell is wrong with this app? please, tell me. and fix this :(

Samuel Hashem Zehi

One problem It won't save my settings, I use the recommended kernel from the developer and the Resurrection Rom (Android 5). Can you please provide me support?

Calvin Lai

Great looking UI But buggy operation... Why do my settings reset on reboot even though I selected set on boot?

J Zhuang

Thank you so much, best app I have ever seem! It works nice on my Sony z2 Android 4.4.4. Also, I appreciate the thermal throtting function. Cpu will not suddenly slow down due to too hot. I hope there would be pimp my z2 in the future.

Peter Rewerts

Great app People who can't use it, it's meant for ROOTED devices and only for Sony z1 out z1c also update is needed for 5.0

Ant Watts

Works adequately Does what it says it does. Some values revert after reboot, but only in the app display, actual settings stick.

mithun govender

Awesome Apart from a few settings reverting after reboot. Easy to use for noobs... Must have.

Hadi Masoudi

5.0.1 problem It was OK on android 4.4.0 but after updating to 5.0.1 keeps crashing, please fix it.

Malindra Perera

Great Offers some must have features for any Z1 user with a stylish and easy to use interface, provided you have a supported custom kernel.

Luke Antra

Suggestion Please add CPU Profiles so we can automatically set CPU frequency when needed.
