Pocket Hack Master Smarthone and Pocket PC Magazine Best Software Awards 2007 WinnerPocket PC Magazine Best Software Awards Winner! Managed CPU scaling approach based on CPU load!


Pocket Hack Master will make your device feel more responsive when you truly need more performance by measuring the load of the processor and applying a faster speed setting instantly when needed or by lowering the CPU clock when the device is idle.


By using Pocket Hack Master you can: 

  • Optimize your device for peak performance when needed and automatically increase the battery life when idling with our True-Scale feature.
  • Gain more accurate and efficient scaling than the built-in one by the OEM of your device.
  • Use application specific speed settings to automatically run any selected application at a specific speed.
  • Overclock your processor to speed up your device above its stock speed.

WARNING: Overclocking (increasing your processor speeds) can make some devices unstable and can lead to loss of data on the device. Always backup your data before using an untested speed. Some devices overclock better than others and therefore support different highest speeds.

  • Change the default processor speed
  • Frequency scaling - automatically change CPU speed depending on the CPU load
  • Voltage scaling - set processor voltage (Samsung ® S3C24xxTM only) for improved stability
  • Application speeds - change CPU speed when a specific application is running
  • Automatically benchmark and filter stable speed settings only
  • Easy to setup scaling engine, no complex calculations involved
  • Disable built-in OEM scaling feature for even wider compatibility
  • Powerful process/running application viewer
  • Processor instant/average load viewer
  • Predefined/recommended speed settings for most devices
  • Built-in specific device database with personalization
  • Sophisticated CPU load measurement code
  • Kernel mode support
  • Change CPU speeds from your today screen
  • Unique and configurable user interface

Increased CPU speed and with scaler raised battery life

"The latest beta version of PHM works great with my PPC6700. The full release of version 4 is coming very soon and I would recommend getting it as soon as it is released. If you have an older version of PHM the upgrade is FREE!! Version 4 disables the built in scaling on my PPC6700 and then lets me select which speeds I want to scale and when the different speeds take effect. It has allowed me to increase my CPU speed and at the same time increase my battery life!! This is a must have program!!"

A reviewer from Peru

If you don’t have this one….

"What can I say. Ever since this one came out, it's in the auto start up group on my PPC. If you don't have this one on yours, you are seriously missing out on the true speed your device can give you. I've tried the copy cat programs out there for the speed hacks, but I would have to say, I'll keep coming back to Anton's program. He is definitely an EXPERT programmer and I trust the data on my device to his work!"

A reviewer from Tampa, FL

Two thumbs up!

"It works really well, best $20 i ever spent, thanks!"

And I even thought of trading my Axim x5 for a newer one…...

"I upgraded to an Axim x5 (advanced), thinking it would be good enough for what I needed it for, but it just didn't quite cut it. The "power save" mode wasn't power saving enough, and the "maximum performance" mode wasn't enough. I tried other programs, but they all froze every time I tried to set the speed ubove 400MHz. I then found this. I could set my CPU to 100MHz, and it would last days, or set the CPU to 600MHz, for that processing power I needed. I achieved 100MHz CPU, 50MHz RAM, 50MHz bus, and 600MHz CPU, 100MHz RAM, and 200MHz bus!!! This program has a cool customizeable aotoscale feature, and is capable of (although I havn't) boosting your pda to 600MHz, 150MHz RAM, and 300MHz bus. Oh, yeah. It can boost MIPS, ARM, and XScale. THIS PROGRAM DROPPED MY MOUTH TO THE FLOOR!"

A reviewer from Utah

This program is awesome!

"After 5 minutes of the trial I registered it immediately. As the previous reviewers have stated, it simply works! I tested this with a very processor intensive program, PocketTV to view mpgegs on my Toshiba e740. Before using this program, the video tended to skip frames and I would always get glitches, even with the Pro version of PocketTV (which is another awesome program!). But once I installed Hack Master, the video playback is absolutely smooth. No glitches, no dropped frames. Great program at a great price!"

Tamim A. using Toshiba e740

The best Scaling app avalibale for Pocket PC

"I own an Acer N50 Premium i bought this app asap when it came out as im always wont to reduce the power consumption so i get longer internet times or music or video length and i know by using this software i can underclock and reduce the power by up to 23% or if i want overclock it to play 3D games e.g Quake 3 for Pocket PC this appliaction is great it test the speeds first and matches to see if teh device is compatiable and the uses it own determining decays to change the device power neccersary to the useage and compution needs all in all it worth every penny u pay no bugs or crashes and always garenteed to work the best Scaling app avalibale for Pocket PC."

Aaron Marshall using Acer n30

Great work!

"It welds inside my iPaq which I don't know what it is doing and I don't want to know either. Just using predefined 3970 profile, my device performance increase significantly. Occasionaly screen refreshing occurs during processor speed change but it is acceptable to me. My device battery now last much longer than before. I LOVE IT."

Eddie Luen using iPAQ H3970

Great app, a must-have

"Pocket Hack Master is just excellent! Microsoft should have integrated such application in their PPC2002 OS. It is a must-have app!"

A reviewer from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Excellent product!

"Anton has released an incredible product with Pocket Hack Master (PHM). He stays active in the forums on his website & listens to what his customers say! This is a GREAT all-in-one program, coded by a very knowledgeable programmer. His customer service skills are incredible."

A reviewer from Pullman, Wa


"I am a frustrated e740 owner that had to live through the constant Activesync dropping issue. Very annoying. This utility is worth every penny just for not having to deal with the Activesync issue. But instead you get a whole lot more with this baby. Highly recommend it, I haven't explored all of it's capabilities yet but so far 1 week and not one connection drop yet. Very satisfied."

A reviewer from New Jersey

This program totally rocks!

"Great interface, all the right options, and finally software support for scaling on an XScale! Well worth the price overall, I'd have paid twice as much."

Jordan deWitt using Dell Axim X5

This is one of the most useful products I have bought

"This is an indispensable tool for the PPC in my opinion! Great program, and the last version is even better. I definatly recomend it to anyone with an xScale PPC!"

A reviewer from Toronto, Canada

CPU frequency and voltage scaling is essential for embedded systems since it greatly improves battery life of the portable devices.


The idea of frequency scaling is simple - when the embedded system is idle the CPU clock should be reduced. Additionally when more processing power is required the CPU speed should be accordingly increased. This approach delivers performance when the embedded device performs CPU intensive tasks and enhances the battery life when the device is not actively used.


The energy that a typical processor consumes is a square function of its clock rate. This means that a CPU running at 100MHz consumes eight times less energy than a processor running at 400MHz.
