I have tried this on a Samsung Tablet, Toshiba Tablet, and a Acer one. None of them did what you said, what make or model did you do this one?

Many of the comments here are inaccurate. The companion core is binary compatible with the main cores. The Tegra3 contains a monitoring agent (running in hardware) which migrates CPU state between the main cores and the companion core -- migration is performed in hardware and is transparent to the OS and apps. Android does not need to be rewritten or modified to use the companion core.

You can read the details in Nvidia's whitepaper - http://www.nvidia.com/content/PDF/te...mance-v1.1.pdf
