Something tells me you're biased when deciding whether or not something concerning kernels is huge. 😉 Some of us just want awesome kernels. Google just made them more awesome and you +Francisco Franco​ will make them more magical.

Naptime 2.2 is out

This is a pretty important fix if you want to disable motion sensor detection. Let me know in the comments how this update works for you.

1 - Added a fairly major workaround to prevent a common issue cause by disabling the device's sensors in which display rotation or brightness slider stopped working. This should've been fixed on this release. Please contact me if this issue isn't resolved
2 - Removed WRITE_SETTINGS permission since it's no longer needed (YAY for reducing permissions count)
3 - Fixed 3 rare force closes

FKUpdater 2.0 Beta

I pushed a new beta version of your favourite app. It has some new powerful things and I need you to test them.

1 - Introduced a new powerful way to empower your Per-App Profiles. Now you can choose whether for Wi-Fi to be on/off, if you desire you toggle Android Battery Saver, and speficy what type of Location Mode you want to use for that specific app. The possibilities are endless and opens a lot of doors
2 - Improved the Performance Profiles widget
3 - New donation page layout
4 - Added support for upcoming (soon) OPX, OP2 and OP3 Kernels
5 - Fixed bugas reported by users

Enroll in the beta: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.franco.kernel
Play Store download: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.franco.kernel

Should be up in the Play Store very soon.
Can't wait for some feedback!

PokeBatterySaver 1.2

New release of my #PokemonGO  battery saver app. Changes are based on user feedback, so keep them coming!

1.2
1 - New option to keep the display on while playing Pokemon GO, bypassing the system setting
2 - Battery saver and Super battery saver underclock the CPUs a further 25% (total of 50% for the battery saver, and 75% on the Super option, calculated against the stock frequencies)
3 - Super battery saver changes Location mode to GPS only instead of Network & Wi-Fi since it seems to be more accurate while saving battery
4 - Automagically decreases display brightness for more battery savings
PokeBatterySave is an application for ROOT users to lower power consumption...

Meanwhile in CatLandia, testing of the new Naptime release is underway. She's about to disable her sensors for full Doze effect.

PokeBatterySaver app has been unsuspended and reinstated

Roughly 48 hours ago my root app to help ya'll achieve better battery like while playing #PokemonGO  was suspended. I believe this was a simple automated mechanism that scans for some sort of apps trying to impersonate Pokémon GO or something. I appealed and it was granted. Although I'll probably have to adjust the app title a little bit to make sure this doesn't happen again. I contacted Google suggesting this types of suspensions are more detailed in the first contact and actually let us make changes before suspending the apps. In my case I lost 48 hours of sales (yeah we gotta eat like everyone else, we ain't machines), which is sad and could be easily prevented if their system was "ask first", "suspend later".
I hope this system keeps improving.

If you're a rooted user and want to achieve greater screen on time while playing Pokémon GO, this app is for you since it touches parts of the system that you can't touch unless you're rooted.

PokeBatterySaver helps a lot with #PokemonGO, but if you have FKUpdater you can go even... further... beyond! Check the PerApp Profile made by Alexander, below.

More customization options for FKUpdater coming soon!

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.franco.kernel
 
to all fellow Pokemon Go players: With the FKU we can improve our battery life! The following are for the 5X, but it should be adoptable to other phones with modified values:

I made a per-app profile, in which I set:
- the thermal throttle to 15° (big cluster is off with that, it is not needed for Pokemon Go)
- Little Cluster max freq: 960MHz, althoug lower values should also be just enough
- little Cluster boost: 864MHz
- GPU Max Freq to 367MHz (have not tried 300MHz yet)

And applied the profile to the Pokemon Go app. It loads a bit slower but still fast enough.


My battery life is significantly better, and now my small powerbank is able to charge the phone while playing, with default settings, the battery was getting down although it was connected.
