@xfahim I tried the rooting process and succeded..but for some reason i cannot connect to pc companion anymore is that a drawback of rooting?..

No it isn't. I can connect my phone to PC Companion easily after rooting. Maybe this your USB problem. Double check it.
You aren' using a custom rom/kernel so there isn't any chance that you won't be able to use PC companion.

it works now i just uninstalled pc companion and install it again..
but i have a question thou when using setCPU app and make min and max 1000mhz it is super smooth like what you said but does it consume more battery than usual?..any recommendation for battery saving app?..

Sorry Late Reply, . .
I got it fixed, the problem was when I setup a "Desktop backup password".
USB debugging mode was on and everything is in order,
good thing i remembered about the backup password :smileygrin:
I've used SetCPU and yeah it really does speed my phone and drains a bit more power.
but i usualy turn-off my screen, WiFi, low notification sounds, low brightness, and also SetCPU profiling, so when screen is turned-off Max is 800 and Min is 200.
so i still get like 24 to 36 hours without recharging
( i really tested the endurance, i did not just get assumptions from some power managing apps )
btw, haven't tested HD games yet :smileygrin:

Yes it drains more power than usual, but you can always set Profiling on SetCPU,
profiling means you can set parameters like mine
i set: "Screen off" condition, then give it command to set CPU to Max 800 and Min to 200 and priority by 100.
If you don't know what I just said or can't find those options, and for future readers
Follow these steps
1. Open SetCPU
2. Go to Profiles Tab
3. Click the :smileyplus: button on top near the notifications bar
4. You'll be viewing the "Conditions" page.
How to add conditions?
and you'll see a list of conditions, you can combine as many as you want
as long as they make sense.
:smileyinfo: You can always specify values for each condition, just tap them
5. Click Next and you'll be at the CPU speed page, you can setup here as to how much CPU your phone will be using when the conditions are true
You have set
Condition: Screen off
Set CPU speed: Max 800Mhz & Min 200 Mhz
If or When the phone Screen is turned off
SetCPU will automatically Set CPU speed to Max 800Mhz & Min 200Mhz
thus results to lesser battery drain ( only if your not processing or downloading anything )I don't advice to set CPU to Max 400Mhz and Min 200Mhz when screen is turned off, because when you turn it on because of some notification, it might lagg or hang a bit
6. Click Next after Setting CPU speed
Just play with the settings a bit, curiosity comes in handy :smileygrin:

bonesnatch, Its okey man.
and thanks for helping ajharassett with settings in SetCPU.
I don't get that much battery in mine. I use Mobile Data when I'm not at home and Mobile Data is battery eater. Wifi uses less battery, I use setCPU profie too, like yours. I use battery turned off profile, Battery <40= profile and charging profile. What do you use?
If you can, test a Asphalt game. Or real racing maybe.

I use 3 profiles
Use this kind of profile at your own risk!Although I'm not sure if there are any risks :smileygrin:
Not sure if setting CPU Mhz Up and Down is a good thing but it might cause any drawbacks,for example: it might damage the hardware or whateverBut I use it anyway :smileygrin:
Set to priority 99 so it overrides priority 98 when I get really low battery and incase when I'm too far away from any power source
:smileyinfo: I'm mostly in the mountains with my dirtbike and DSLR :smileygrin: so this comes-in handy
Yeah i might re-download that app, it did not cause too much problems on me when my xGO was on GB, hopefully it removes the tiny lagg now that I have it Rooted and manipulated the CPU
Thanks for reminding me :smileygrin: ( well I ony bought it because it was on sale haha )
