    Uses up way too much cpu processes itself. Lowest I seen it run was at 16% constantly. Highest was 56% constantly and I was just scrolling up and down. Bring down how much processes it uses and it will be a great program. Ive only downloaded 2 progs so far, this and sports tap so I know this is the one lagging the phone. – cliq xt

      Hello David,

      Thanks for your post. here a few answers:
      The task tab dont show android internal process. thoses can be responsible for some cpu load.
      From measurment i made, the CPU load due to Android System Info is about 8% on HTC Tattoo and 4% on a nexus one.

      When you scroll, the raise in cpu load is due to android event system, you can see detail in the bug filed here:

    Hello, I used “Android System Info” on Samsung GalaxyA(based on TI OMAP 34xx Processor). when i look at the CPU section of the application, it says “600Mhz” but Samsung officially said “The application mis-read the cpu info, it should be 720Mhz”. I wonder if who is telling the truth, application? or Samsung? I hope i can have your advice.

    Hello
    I just tried this on my evo. Sweet! So far, it’s well thought and should replace several overlaping apps that only cover a small % of your apps.

    QUESTION – IF I’m not doing active tweeking for battery life or performance, am I better off disabling this apps? How do you use it?

    Thanks!

  17. Chip Says:

    Where can I download the app.

    I am using an Archos device which is android based but does not have access to the android market. It uses AppLib.

    A zip file with a note that says if you are not going through Market it might not work would be good.

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      if you look for it, you may find some package to install the android market on archos device

    • pete bertram (the butcher) Says:

      I have an Archos 80 G9 turbo ICS (android 4.0) if your using a gen. 9 android base you do have access to the Market. Don’t go thru the applib. I don’t know if this app is available thru google play but you can try there. Hope this helps.

  18. Wydi Says:

    That’s a nice app!

    But I got one question:
    Why exactly does it gather my GPS coordinates on Startup and why does it need to take photos? I would love to use and even donate for it, but since I’m pretty careful regarding my personal information, I don’t like that.
    Please remove or at least explain those requirements and your app shall be one of the most useful apps on the market!

    Thanks!

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      Hello,
      You are right to be careful.
      So, to explain it, the LOCATION permission is used by admob (the ad banner)
      the CAMERA permission is required to gather all information about camera (in the system tab)
      the INTERNET perm is also for admob
      the READ_LOG perm is used to display logs
      WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE perm is for saving logs in sdcard and also to save bug report
      TELEPHONY_STATE perm is used to gather all telephony info (system tab)

      • stone Says:

        Hi. Love this app. Original moto droid here. In what event log should i look for strange or unusual? Any pointers on what i should consider unusual and possibly spyware? Is there more info that can help me to understand and decipher the event logs? Thank you.

  22. Alicea Walbridge Says:

    Under the system info there’s the environment section. I opened that and at top I saw Root directory:/system. I am trying to find out if that means my moto droid is rooted or not? Can you help please?

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      Hello Alicea,
      root directory is a folder containing system files. It is not linked to the “rooted” state.
      If your device is rooted, you should have possibility to become “superuser” aka “administrator” aka “root”.
      An easy way to check is to dowload a terminal application on your device and try the command “su”.

      Hope it will help

    Great app! SDCard usage percentage is wrong on my Nexus One: it shows 96% when Max=3773.5Mo and Free=3657.9Mo. It should probably show 4% …

    ( Using Android System Info 1.10.3 on Nexus One 2.2 )

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      is the glass half-empty or half-full? ;)
      there is no wrong percentage, it shows available ressources. In your case, it indicates that you have 96% available.
      Anyway, if you think it would be better to show used ressources instead of free ressources, let me know :)

    I experienced some strange behaviour with GPS on my HTC Dream (G1) on Android 1.6: Receiving coordinates way off (each second), my location was jumping all over the city.

    I don’t understand why, but after uninstalling the ASI app (downloaded today, forgot the version, sorry) the problem disappeared and my GPS is spot on again.

    Too bad, because apart from this issue I found ASI a very VERY impressive app.

    Hope this is of any use to someone. Keep up the good work, ES!

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      this is pretty strange. Can you try to reinstall ASI to check if there is the problem?
      ASI doesnt use GPS itself, but admob use it. On next release, i’ll remove the FINE_LOCATION permission, so admob wont use GPS anymore

    How do I update stuff in the “System” tab? For instance, when I unplug the phone while in the app, it will read “Charging” and a percentage which will never change (or, at least not as long as I had patience watching).

    Only way to update I found was thru a FC and restart.

    What gives? Perhaps an ‘Update’-option?

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      Currently, there is no refresh. If you want to refresh info, you have to exit using the back button. Beware, if you press the home button, you dont exit the app, you put it in background.

      I think i’ll release an update this week end that should have an update button.

    I have weird stuff that show up like clowned items and remote access granted and Verizon says they don’t know about it. What is going on. I have weird things happening and who is flurry agent, ad mob, check in service etc. Please help.

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      Could you give more informations? what are “clowned items”?
      for “remote access granted”, i think you have one or several apps using remote access. I’ll make an update of “Android System Info” that will display all permissions used by apps. So you could check which apps use remote access.
      flurry agent is a tool embedded sometimes in apps to do some usages stats (ex: bug tracking)
      admob agent is used to display ads

      • Wireball Says:

        I believe he means *cloned* items. I noticed this behavior when I kept playing around with “matrixcat” live wallpaper settings; after a while there were dozens of copies of matrixcat showing. However, they all had different PIDs, so it was probably accurate. Rebooting the phone got rid of the extras. It was a problem with the live wallpaper; not OSmonitor.

  32. droidxuser Says:

    Just wanted to know if it was possible to have the app go into lanscape when tilting the phone. If its available, how can i fix it. If its not ontegrated, its just a suggestion for future versions of the app. Thanks

    Also: another log entry sais something like “dispatcher thinks it is finished but.. “. What/who is a dispatcher in this case & what does the log entry mean?
    Is there a place to go with a list of all the different types of log entries & what exactly they mean?

  40. ANdrew Says:

    Great App, jut downloaded it to my brand new, from ebay, Irobot Apad..

    I have a question (or three :): Under CPU it shows BogoMIPS as 499.71, is this the CPU speed ? as item was sold as 800Mhz.

    All through the tabs it states Telechips but is sold under the title Rockchip, what’s the deal here, I thought they were totally different CPU’s ?

    And Under Memory Tab > Total RAM is 144MB, now this doesn’t sound like the 256MB it was sold as ?

    Have I been ripped here ? Any help appreciated before, already had the first one delivered with a cracked screen, don’t want to go off the deep end with this guy, at least un-armed.

    I want to develop on this thing and i’m feeling that it’s not all it’s been sold to me as…?

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      Bogomips shows calculation power. Frequency is shown a few lines under.
      Also, for the ram, it shows max available. It is less than official spec because part of this ram is reserved for the system.

  47. BDofMSP Says:

    I have been using Android System Info app to track unusual CPU behavior. This happens 2 or 3 times a day – the phone gets unresponsive. When I open this app, it shows me that my CPU is pegged at 100%, but it doesn’t show me any specific app that is using 100% (or anything that adds up to 100%).

    At this point I start killing apps that have fluctuating levels of memory usage (with no corresponding CPU usage) and I can almost always nail it on the 1st or 2nd try now. CPU will drop to normal instantly. The offending app is all over the map, with Internet, andriod.process.media, Mail, com.google.process.gapps, YouTube and sometimes HTC Sense being the most common offenders. Every time these are showing zero CPU usage.

    I’m so glad that I have that app to work around this issue, but I wish it would accurately display the offending app. Any idea why these offending processes / apps would show zero CPU but still be chewing it up like crazy?

    Great work. Love the app

    An excellent collection of data and function. I wish the Tasks list would remember the chosen Sort between invocations, or even make CPU the default; to me this its most important function (“what process are consuming my CPU right now?”)

    What I REALLY wish, to make this the perfect dashboard (IMO ;) is to make the other panels in the dashboard besides Battery clickable, and allow an arbitrary application to be associated with each. Thus I could invoke my favorite file manager, app manager, network monitor, or whatever, all from the same initial display, now become supremely useful!

  51. Ash Says:

    Great app. Is there a way to save sort preferences? Annoying to have to sort it everytime. CPU usage for example

  52. Mark Says:

    Until recently this app was showing about 16% cpu usage when the phone wasnt doing anything special.

    Now it shows about 76% of which the Androis System Info proces takes up 51%

    Is this the overhead of the program itself? It didnt show up before and I even read that internal processes linked to Android System Info shouldnt be shown at all… so whats happening here?

  53. BDofMSP Says:

    So its not just me. This started 3 days ago.

  54. tony Says:

    I have been using this for a while and love it. It always seems to suck up about 10 – 15 % of the CPU when running but I would think that is normal. However, the other day I downloaded my flash update and now when I run Android System Info it shows that it is sucking up about 75% of the CPU? Is the new flash update interfering with it? Using an EVO 4G.

  78. Lis Riba Says:

    I tried to send an email to the address in the about box, but it bounced.

    Just wanted to suggest a feature I’d like to see:

    When the user chooses “Save log”, offer an option for the user to add a note. I don’t care whether you append or prepend that note to the logfile itself, or save it in a separate file such as {same-filename}-note.txt

    Here’s why:
    When my system is acting strangely, I will sometimes save the logfile so I can figure out what’s going on.
    However, I may not have a chance to actually delve into the logfile until much later – at which point I’ve often forgotten why I had saved that logfile in the first place.
    It would be nice to be able to add a quick 1-sentence note to provide some context. “Navigation failed” or “Recording a standard boot” or “Why did it just vibrate?”

    Just a suggestion. Aside from that, it’s a great app.

    Can you pls add a feature to save the info’s in the System-Tab to a file?
    Would be great.

    Hello, i like this app and using it on my 7 inch android tablet.
    One thing i do not understand is that it is telling me how much
    space i have left on my SD card. But i don’t have an SD card plugged in. Thank you

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      In fact, the extra internal memory is declared as sd card storage. The real sd card is declared as “external sd card”.
      But i agree, it is not clear…

    Hey programmer guy! There is a bug with your app on honeycomb: The menu doesn’t show up! It looks fine and scales nice, but there is no menu gadget on the screen, and since there isn’t any hard menu button on the tablet we are screwed, could you fix that? :)

  92. Jens Says:

    Hello from germany,
    great app!!

    Under battery/history:
    – What do the colors of the bars (red/blue) mean?
    – What is the program named ‘0’ under networkusage?
    If I tab on it, the app crashes

    Under log:
    – what do the different textcolors mean?

  93. Jens Says:

    OK, except the last question i found all answers by google:-)

  94. KZ Says:

    Nice app, but would it be possible to allow the app to detect/support
    both portrait rotations, not just one? My tablet has physical keys
    arranged such that the current portrait orientation is a problem. All other apps I use allow this… Thanks.

  95. CSH Says:

    Love the app. Had it since shortly after getting my Droid X last summer and it worked great until recently.
    Since the VZW upgrade to Gingerbread got pushed out, the home screen widget updates erratically so now it is usually wrong about battery state, etc.; Oftentimes it just shows question marks for all three values. I tried removing the widget and reinstalling it, but that was no help. Tried uninstalling ASI completely and reinstalling (V1.17.2), but again, no help. Anything you can do would be appreciated, otherwise I’m back to depending on the battery icon in the status bar. :-(

    Hi, just installed Vers. 1.17.2. I like your app but I dont like banner ad. As I’m not the first who is asking, is there in the meantime a possibility to donate to switch off the banner ad?

  97. Davis Says:

    Can you add a feature that shows the last 3 time since unplugged times for the battery. I would like to have an idea of what the average time the battery is hold a charge is. Android OS gives you the current time since unplugged when you check under the battery, I’d like to have that extended to show the previous 2 as well.
    Thanks,

    Awesome app by the way.

    Questions regarding CPU Frequency Stats time:
    Is time measured in milliseconds? I mean values in parenthesis.
    Is it real processing time, or time processor is set to that specific frequency?

    I really like this app, but really hate the advertisements. Any chance of getting same app without advertisments, I don’t see one in Market. Such a great app to have part of it covered up by advertisment. I’m sure if the ad free version price is reasonable, people will pay for it. I will.

    When I click on download on the Android Systems Info page, I am beeing tranferred to another website, where I am supposed to download a program ‘iLividSetupV1.exe’. Is this a scam or a virus ? I simply want to download the app and transfer it to my tablet, which does not have android market access.

    Very useful application, but I was wondering if it’s possible to remove ads by getting a paid app or making a donation. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 with fixed (monthly flat) rate for data mobile, but even though I use it mostly via wi-fi, I find annoying and risk-taking (expensive mobile data costs) this overload of avertising banners and ads. Do you plan to release soon an ASI pro paid app without ads? Thanks

    thanks a lot!

  111. pete bertram (the butcher) Says:

    Hello, first of all I want to say I think you have a fantastic app with more information than I could ever want (or understand at this point in my computer literacy).
    My first question, for now, concerns the system menu option
    “Gtalk Service Monitor” – I get that this reports info on connection state (ie wi-fi), time, frequency.etc but, what does
    “Heartbeat interval” mean?
    also what’s the implication of the option
    “send Heartbeat to server”?
    Finally, does the running countdown timer after “alarm will trigger” mean that the cell phone will attempt to automatically reconnect to wi-fi?
    That would add up because, unless I’m crazy (possible), since I’ve installed your app my cell re-connects to wi-fi unless I turn on airplane mode.
    I know your very busy between tweaking this app and addressing everyone’s questions but, I’d surely appreciate an answer. I tried searching the web but I’ve had no luck.
    Thanks in advance,
    Pete (the butcher)

  118. Alessandro Says:

    Hi,
    I have a question, when restart from zero the app’s running time count ?
    Thanks for your attention.

  119. Ross Says:

    On my Sprint Epic 4G, the Telephony display includes values for Base Station Latitude and Base Station Longitude, which I believe are supposed to be the coordinates the cell tower is squawking. But the values displayed by Android System Info are nonsensical as geographic coordinates. For example, right now it shows Base Station Latitude as 435992, and Base Station Longitude as -1407299. (Base Station ID is 6707, which I know to be correct.)

    Should the app be doing some math transformation on the lat/lon values, or what.?

    • Ross Says:

      Further research indicates that you do need to transpose the raw values returned by the API before reporting them. See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5409696/why-getbasestationlatitude-keeps-returning-the-integer-max-value-unknown

      In other words, the API returns an integer value that is .25 minutes, so there are 4 per second. * 60 seconds per minute * 60 minutes per degree == 14400.

      So doing the math from that explanation, you just have to take those raw signed integer values that you report now for both Base Station Latitude and Base Station Longitude, convert to float and divide by 14400. The resulting value is precisely what it should be, expressed in decimal degrees. I have confirmed that empirically with the tower site.

      • Ross Says:

        EDIT: My last post should read:

        In other words, the API returns an integer value that is .25 seconds, so there are 4 per second. * 60 seconds per minute * 60 minutes per degree = 14400.

      • 3lectricsheep Says:

        thanks for the help. As i’m not in the US, I cant test 4G behavior. I’ll make the fix asap.
        Thanks again!

  120. Ross Says:

    Upon reflection, it may be a legitimate design choice to leave your app as it is. You are reporting accurately the raw Android system data. Or it might be more meaningful to end-users to convert to degrees for lat and lon.

  121. Laurence Says:

    Great source of information – thanks! BUT like many others, I dislike the admob banner. Would be prepared to pay/donate a suitable sum for an ad-free version. Thanks!

    • 3lectricsheep Says:

      Hello Laurence,

      Thanks for using my app. A lot of users are asking for it, i think i’ll make a pay version in a few weeks (with some more features). What price would you pay for it?

      • Nick Says:

        I would also gladly pay a small sum. Somewhere up to $2 or 1,50€.
        Thanks for the good work.

    I am using Cherry Mobile w900 where it supposedly should have the following specs:

    Internal storage: 1GB

    CPU: 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon S2 ARMv7

    Using android system info. It shows:
    Internal memory:

    RAM
    Max: 370 MB Free: 134 MB

    CPU
    Processor ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7I)

    Can anyone please explain the discrepancies? Thank you.

    Thank you

  126. Shane Says:

    In the app tab i see you have the option off deleting system apps eg, Google play, the camera app etc and my galxy note 10.1 is not rooted. So if i was to tap on the delet tab on 1 of these system apps would it delet or would it tell me i need root permissions etc.

  127. arne Says:

    Hi. Someone recommened this app, because it should show the stacktrace of aborted apps in jelly bean, with no other app can without root rights. unfortunately the stacktrace is not shown on my galaxy nexus. does anybody know why ?
