FAQ

  • Q: will it work on kernel X? A: It is made to work on stock kernel. It might work on kernels which are close to stock. I will however try to find a way to make it as compatible as possible. I'm going to assume that you can safely try this mod on your kernel (but don't enable set-on-boot) worst case scenario is a reboot
  • Q: does this consume battery? Short answer - Maybe. Long answer - this might bring some drain, some users report quite a big battery drain some not, I will address this issue in some time. Check yourself how much an issue it is for you.
  • Q: will it break my touchscreen? Short answer - No Long answer - digitizer is turning off so its not working all the time. The same mod works for more then year on my Galaxy Nexus and it never lost a bit of it's responsiveness
  • Q: why do I have to pay? Why did you pay for your phone? You did save a few bucks on the phone which was cheap. Now is your chance to make those savings worthy
  • Q: if I want to marry you where can I find you? Oh... this question meant to go somewhere else ;P And I'm taken.
