Lumos, holding true to its legacy, combines the best from all available auto-backlight solutions in a simple to use package and adds many extras for your tweaking needs.

- simple yet powerful configuration GUI with easy step-by-step calibration process
- many options that let you change every aspect of how your backlight works
- program exceptions to set different backlight for any application
- relative excaptions allow you to amplify/attenuate the automatic backlight for specific applications
- custom backlight profiles
- extensive in-app context help
- great customer support with an issue/request tracking system
- button and keyboard backlight support, including smooth backlight if rooted and supported by HW


Requirements:
- android 2.2 or newer

Changelog:

v1.31:
- added smooth button mode support for some HTC One series kernels
- added ability to force buttons on/off as exception

v1.3:
- fixed buttons sometimes staying on when sleeping in root mode
- fixed crash when canceling exception
- added Czech translation
- marked as compatible with Android 2.2
- sample queue is wiped on wakeup for quicker re-adjustment to new light level
- increased reliability of root commands
- experimental more reliable button off on sleep (root modes)


v1.2:
MAJOR CORE CHANGES, CLEAN REINSTALL RECOMMENDED
- reworked sample queue and calculations to allow for intermediate values, resulting in more smoothness in precise mode
- decoupled sample queue and update queue length (update is now performed after every sample if needed)
- above results in lower average latency and allows for longer sample intervals (less CPU usage, more smoothness)
- above also makes larger sample queues viable as means to smoothen out sensor fluctuations
- added ability to apply user min/max as dynamic range for all calculations (compresses CalBrightness into user range instead of capping)
- Lumos will try to use root access to bulletproof itself if you disable ongoing notification icon
- fixed crash after increasing sample queue size
- tweaked the graphs of built-in profiles to better accommodate dynamic range compression
- added backlight fix for HTC One series phones to prevent button flickering (you need to switch the mode manually)
- allowed broader range for sensor sampling rate and sample queue
- showing average latency instead of worst case in settings to get more realistic numbers
- fixed bugs in relative exceptions
- installed app list is now sorted by name
- other minor bugfixes
! your sampling rates, queue size and animation length settings will be reset after update
! new option Compress Dynamic Range will default to ON

Just purchased this nik3r to say thanks for your work on the Elite kernel for the One X+.

I tend to use 50%, 65% or 85% brightness depending on the lighting, so this'll allow me to finetune the screen backlight levels to my liking & hopefully save a bit of battery in the process.


One small issue on AOKP 4.1.2 for the One X+ though is that the button backlight doesn't ramp up & down along with the screen brightness.

I was under the impression that it is mean to?

Or is this feature only supported under Sense roms on the One X+?

For One X+ you need to use root mode to get reliable on/off and stock-based ROMs don't support smooth levels, unfortunatelly.
Maybe AOSP ROMs will add the support, because I doubt it is a hardware limitation but rather driver issue.

some feedback from me:

this app is awesome! it does exactly what it should and the calibration process makes it very simple to set it up to the values i prefer for autobrightness. there's no need anymore to create/flash mods to reduce autobrightness settings.

i also have some suggestions for future versions:
some more explanations on settings (at least for the core section), profiles and app exceptions since not everything there is self explanatory.

but as this does not affect basic functionality of this app, i'd give 5 stars for this one. i recommend it to everyone who wants to improve battery life by easily setting his own values for brightness levels!
Click the "Thanks"-Button if someone helped you!

Apply your EliteKernel settings on startup with userinit.sh!

Lightbulb New version

New version of Lumos v1.2
is released and will appear on the Play Store shortly.

In the meantime I added a changelog to the second post and it is pretty extensive

Hope you enjoy the update as much as I enjoyed making it!
