SCREENSHOTS




RECOMMENDED VALUES FOR SCREEN CALIBRATION ( with White Balance options)

For models that mount the Sharp panel (RENASAS), which is the most common and measured by this servant, recommended settings are:
- Saturation: 10.6
- Hue: 206

- How to know which panel model I have?
Install a terminal from the Play Store and type this into the window:

Code:
- su
- dmesg|grep -i panel
