Automatic hibernation is finally come to non-root devices - Call for beta testers!

In version 2.0, Greenify brought automated manual hibernation to non-root devices. With a single touch to the shortcut, all greenified apps got hibernated immediately. But compared to the root users, we still had to remember that "extra touch", UNTIL NOW.

In the 2.4 beta version, a brand new fully automatic hibernation finally helps non-root users to get the fairly equivalent experience with their root friends.

Once activated in experimental features (no donation package required), minutes after your device goes standby, if any greenified apps need to hibernate, the screen will light up, the automatic hibernation is then performed, followed by immediate turning the screen off. All by itself through several seconds.

This is the the best approach Greenify could achieve in non-root device at present, although the screen lightening does consume a little more power than the root approach. But compared to the time you spent playing with your device, it is actually trivial to the battery consumption, especially considering the saved battery juice by Greenify.

Note: this feature is only available on Android 4.1+, without secure keyguard set. (since Android doesn't allow Greenify to unlock the keyguard by itself if its secured)

WARNING: If you greenified some frequent-woken apps, the above procedure might be triggered much more frequently than average, thus causes notable battery waste than you may expect.

-----

An alternative feature you may prefer - Hibernate and Lock Screen

This is an extra bonus for you non-root users. If you prefer to hibernate apps immediate after the screen goes off, which sounds more natural and convenient to some users, you can use the new shortcut "Hibernate and Lock Screen" instead of direct turning off the screen with the power key.

Even the better if your device has no dedicated hardware keys (like Nexus 4/5), you can easily trigger this shortcut with a swipe up gesture from the "Home" soft key on the navigation bar, provided that you don't need to launch Google Now with that gesture.

-----

Excited about the special treat for the non-root world? Please help us testing and improving these early features before the stable release by joining the beta channel of Greenify, in the following steps:

1. Join the Greenify community on G+:
https://plus.google.com/communities/103850238949791125024
2. Open this page in browser, and opt-in the beta channel:
https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.oasisfeng.greenify
3. Wait the beta version to be delivered by Google Play Store updates. (or you can reboot your device to immediately check it out on Google Play Store)
4. Test it out and give your feedback or issue report in the G+ community. (Please post in the beta channel with the issue details, such as device model, Android version, ROM variants, Greenify beta version)

+Greenify thank you for the answer. That's how I have seen it. Some people report they have better results without xposed (with art.) and claim it drains so much battery that it is better to run Greenify donate alone (which also can hibernate some system apps.).

I just wanted to hear your opinion/experience about it. Thanks again.

Optimize beyond the greenified - Wake-up Timer Coalescing

Greenify maintains a list of apps you don't want to run in background or stealthily, but what about those apps with background features really useful?

Typically, I have to leave them out of Greenify, and hope the developers behind really pay attention to the battery consumption of their apps.

In reality, not only commercial interests pull back developers' willing to save battery, but also a large number of the app developers do not even take advantage of the built-in mechanism of Android for battery saving.

One of the most important improvement on power optimization in Android KitKat is the ability to "batch timers", in order to reduce wake-ups of CPU in standby state, thus extend the standby duration. (Ref: http://developer.android.com/about/versions/android-4.4.html#Behaviors)

Again, in reality, very few apps actually takes advantage of this mechanism. So even if you have a phone with latest Android 4.4, you probably still benefit little from this feature.

In Greenify 2.3, a new experimental feature "Wakeup Timer Coalescing" is introduced (for Android 4.4+ only). It's currently only available in donation package, as an early preview, and may eventually graduate to free version (like Boost Mode, Wake-up Tracker, and etc).

This feature forces all apps with periodic background CPU wake-ups to be always managed by the "batching" mechanism in Android KitKat, even if developers are not using this mechanism in their code.

Just activate it and Greenify will let you know about its effort in timer coalescing with silent (low-priority) notification, which only shows up once for each app. (except if a timer with shorter interval is used)

For advanced users, the effect of this feature can be easily perceived in "Settings - Battery" of your device. Just compare the wake-up statistics in diagram with and without this feature.

+Kale Muscarella It's only shown once for each app coalesced. Just swipe it away, you won't see it again.

The recent translations update is delayed due to migration, they will be shipped in the next beta version if everything goes well.
 
The community translation platform of Greenify is migrated from privately-hosted GlotPress to OneSky, for a much better translation experience.

As you may already know, Greenify 2.0 (since beta versions) works on non-rooted devices, with the trade off for auto-hibernation. The "Hibernate All" shortcut (widget) is your friend in current state.

Today, I'm excited to announce that auto-hibernation is also coming to non-root working mode in the near future!

Stay tuned! :)

Anyone experiencing auto-hibernation hiccup in recent betas (or even 1.99), please help me further diagnose this issue by capturing logcat (if you know how) in the following exact steps:

(Please be sure to use version 2.0 beta 9)

1. Open Greenify to make sure there're apps still in "Pending" section.
2. Open system "Settings - Apps - Running Services" to confirm Cleaner service of Greenify is currently running.
3. Start logcat capture.
4. Turn your screen off with power button.
5. Wait 5-10 minutes.
6. Stop logcat capture.
7. Open Greenify again to confirm apps still in "Pending".

Please send me the complete logcat captured between step 3 and  6, and be sure to have timestamps in it.

Q: Which apps should I greenify?

A: In short, don't hibernate all (or most of) your apps. App Analyzer of Greenify only shows apps which have POTENTIAL impact on battery consumption or device performance (click the icon "i" of each section for more details), it doesn't mean they actually have. You are suggested to only hibernate those you seldom use, plus the apps you are sure have negative impacts, most probably identified by the "Settings - Battery" of your device, or 3rd-party diagnose apps, such as Wakelock Detector and BetterBatteryStats (for power users).

[Background Knowledge]

"Running in background" does not mean it has definite impact on battery consumption or device performance. Experienced developers can also reduce the memory footprint of background service as low as several megabytes, which is negligible in most middle-to-high end devices with 1~2G RAM.

"May slow down the device" also does not mean it has definite impact on device smoothness. Android caches the process of apps regularly run, thus significantly reduced the cost of launching it in background.

Rovo89 has shed some light on the ART runtime support of the epic Xposed framework! It's only a matter of time for us to enjoy the full power of hacking with the next major version of Android, without the fear of losing your favorite Xposed modules at all.

For now, it's better stay with the mature Dalvik runtime, or for geeks, the optimized version of Dalvik from Qualcomm.

This is why Dalvik is faster than ART runtime in devices with Qualcomm CPU. If you are using device with Qualcomm optimized Dalvik, like Moto X, you should stick to Dalvik for PERFORMANCE.
