Default [App]14.03.2011 SuperPower v0.80 Battery save:Data, Wi-Fi, BT, GPS, 2G/3G/4G, CPU mhz

THIS IS AN UNSUPPORTED EXPERIMENTAL BETA APPLICATION, BUGGY, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE USING.

About

SuperPower attempts to save battery power by controlling various power hungry components and features of the device. Its features include managment of the cellular data connection, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, CPU speed and 2G/3G band. It does all this automagically based on the options you configure.

There are more battery saver apps out there, but none that work the way I want them to. It is however meant to work relatively simply. If you want uber-fine-grained control use one or a combination of the other applications available.

SuperPower also serves as somewhat of an Android port of WMLongLife.

BETA, Development & Testing

This application is in beta stage and far from finished. There will be bugs, and the list of things that still need to added, changed, refactored, streamlineed, etc is long.

Primary testing and development is done on a Galaxy S (unbranded, EU, I9000) device, but I also run tests on a G1 and a Hero. Other users have reported it (mostly) works on the Droid, Milestone, Nexus, Desire, Pulse, EVO.

Android version

SuperPower requires Android 1.6 or newer. Some features require newer versions, and some features have a different code path on different Android versions.

For example, Bluetooth features require Android 2.0, while the download speed tracker (to not disable data while downloading) requires Android 2.2. Features are automatically disabled if they are not available for your Android version.

Main features

Control over
- Cellular data
- Wi-Fi
- WiMAX * Android 2.2+ *
- Bluetooth * Android 2.0+ *
- CPU speed * ROOT *
- Bands (2G/3G) * ROOT *
- GPS * ROOT, PATCH, Android 2.2+ *
- Auto-Sync
- Background data * ROOT, PATCH, Android 2.2+ *

Automatic management of the above based on
- Screen state
- Wi-Fi network connection state
- WiMAX network connection state
- Lock screen visibility state
- Download speed
- Foreground application
- Tethering state
- Sleep mode
- Low battery state
- Charging state

Other

- Schedule data connection to be available at certain times

- Schedule night mode

- Informative toasts in response to user actions

- Status bar notifications about the current state, which you can tap to change

- Provides handy shortcuts you can add to the home screen for easy access of a number of functions

Additional features

- Enable/disable data is non-persistent. APNs are not modified! This is no longer true on Gingerbread (2.3) and newer due to changes in Android security. Here either data is disabled entirely (Settings -> Wireless and network -> Mobile networks -> Use packet data, or APNs are modified (Access Point Names in the same menu).

- 2G/3G switching is supported in two different ways: RIL injection (highly experimental, any ROM, possible side effects) and Sidekick (AOSP ROMs signed with platform test keys, or using patching)

- Completely event based, no polling, ever.

Future features

I have a LOT of them already in my to-do list. However, if you have any ideas feel free to post them. To name a few that are already on my list: configuration wizard, widget, GPS control, mapper, signal-strength based 2G/3G. Of course improvement to current features, fixing bugs, etc are also on my (perpetual?) to-do list.

General: Will this prolong battery life ?
Quite probably, yes, significantly! BUT, there is never a guarantee. It all depends on how you use your device, the current conditions, and how you configure SuperPower. Some options in general save a lot of battery, but may be too inconvenient for you to use (specifically 2G/3G switching), and if you still want to use them, some playing with the various options may be needed to get it to work with the least amount of inconvenience to your usage pattern.

If you are a very heavy user, no amount of software is going to help you (much). You need a bigger battery (or a spare). If all you use your device for is streaming YouTube, chances are battery life improvements you will see are little to none.

CPU scaling may have less effect than expected. The amount of battery it saves has differed wildly between tests on different devices.

Using Wi-Fi may use significantly less power than using 2G/3G. Or, 2G/3G may use significantly less power than using Wi-Fi. It depends on the situation, the signal strength of both cellular and Wi-Fi, the transfer speed, etc.

Using 2G instead of 3G will generally speaking use less battery for most users, but this is not a given. It depends on the situation.

All in all however, the default SuperPower configuration will provide you with a setup that will save a lot of battery for the average user, with little to no inconvenience to the user.


General: I want feature X, but it isn't included
Feel free to request the feature in this thread, even if this feature is already listed in these posts that it will be implemented sooner or later. If feature X is posted about 10 times, and feature Y only 3 times, that may have an effect on the priority of implementation.


General: I expected X to happen, but Y happened
Please go through the entire configuration to make sure you haven't configured anything that causes this behaviour Y before posting here. Also read through this FAQ and the known issues. It is of course possible you have found an undocumented bug, if so please report it here (see "I found a bug")


General: I found a bug
If you post it here, perhaps we can do something about it. But first, please check your configuration first to make sure it is unexpected behaviour. When posting about a bug, always include the relevant SuperPower configuration options, exactly which device you are using, which ROM, etc. More information is usually better !


Data connections: The connection state changed, but didn't change back when I expected it to
In the default configuration, SuperPower will "upgrade" connection states as soon as possible, but general only "downgrade" them when you aren't looking.

For example, turning on data will be done as soon as you need it; while turning off data will generally be done only a while after the screen goes off. The same goes for for example 2G/3G. Switching to 3G will happen as soon as possible, switching to 2G will not be done immediately.

This does all depend on your SuperPower configuration, though!


System popups: The PIN screen pops up sometimes
On some devices certain actions can cause the PIN screen to popup when for example bandswitching or coming out of airplane mode.

If you enter your PIN code in the SuperPower configuration and you have such a device, SuperPower will attempt to automatically enter the PIN code for you - IF it understands it was one of SuperPower's actions that caused the PIN popup. An overlay screen will be presented to you while the PIN is entered and the SIM unlocked.

This is however an experimental feature, may not work 100% of the time, and can cause some inconvenience. If you find this highly annoying, but you do want to use the features SuperPower provides that may cause this behaviour, you can disable the PIN screen altogether in the device's settings application.


System popups: The lock screen pops up sometimes
Like the PIN screen, on some devices certain actions can cause the lock screen to popup. SuperPower actively counters this behaviour while it is performing actions. Should it still happen, please report it (and the exact situation that caused it), specific code that prevents this behaviour may need to be added to code in additional places.


2G/3G: A band switch is being performed even though I'm already in the mode it is switching to
It is not always possible to detect the current 2G/3G state. In that case, SuperPower will treat the current mode as undefined, and any trigger that will cause either 2G or 3G mode will result in a band switch being performed, regardless of what the current actual state may be. This is also a reason to not use the device's settings app (or any other app) to switch between 2G/3G when SuperPower is also using 2G/3G functionality. Always use SuperPower (and only SuperPower) to perform the band switch!


2G/3G: What is the difference between the RIL injection and the Sidekick method ?
RIL injection is as hackery as hacks come, and is currently only available for GSM devices. It completely circumvents most of Android and tries to force commands to be sent to the radio.

Sidekick on the other hand will use the same method as the device's settings screen to trigger a band switch, and is therefor both safer and faster to use. It does unfortunately require a compatible ROM. Carrier / manufaturer ROMs are usually not compatible, and not all custom ROMs are compatible either. Sidekick is available both on GSM as well as CDMA devices.

If your ROM is Sidekick compatible, Sidekick will always be used instead of RIL injection.

Both methods have not been extensively tested on a wide range of devices yet. So neither method may be compatible with your device. Please post here if neither method works on your device.


2G/3G: Even though I have root, the 2G/3G switching options are disabled (CDMA)
RIL injection is currently only supported on GSM devices. Only the Sidekick method supports CDMA at the moment.


2G/3G: Band switching takes too long, is this a bug ? Can it be improved ?
Band switching will take time, and inconvenience you. There is no way around this. The phone has to drop the network connection and completely reconnect to the tower.

However, in some cases it does take longer than in other cases. The Sidekick method provides the fastest band switching available, but is not compatible with many ROMs. If your ROM is compatible, though, Sidekick will be installed and used automatically instead of RIL injection.

When the RIL injection method is used (which will probably be for most users), band switching speed depends heavily on the device. Some devices are fairly quick with RIL injections, others are slow. If you have a device that requires your PIN code for operations such as band switching and coming out of airplane mode, band switching will also take significantly longer.

Depending on all these factors, band switching can take anywhere between 10 seconds and a minute. Band switching will usually save a lot of power, but you have to consider wether the extra battery life is worth the inconvenience.


2G/3G: I'm in 2G mode but my device switched back to 3G
Some devices are known to do this. If it happens to you, please post about it. An attempt a viable workaround is on the to-do list.


CPU: The device never wakes from sleep
Not all devices work perfectly with CPU scaling. If this happens, reboot your phone, go into SuperPower configuration, and switch the "ondemand" setting under "Root features". If that doesn't work, you'll just have to disable CPU scaling.


CPU: Using tool X shows me that CPU speed is never changed
The CPU speed cannot be easily changed on all devices. Some devices/firmwares are "perflocked". Disabling perflock is beyond the scope of SuperPower, and thus SuperPower will make no attempt to disable it. There are tools out there that can disable perflock on many devices that have it, for example, check out SetCPU.

Default Known issues

- IMPORTANT BUG - WARNING In various Android 2.1 (Eclair) builds there is a bug with push email. In case there is no data connection available, the background email service will go absolutely insane. It will use quite some CPU power constantly, and it will not let the device go to sleep - ever! I do not know if this bug existed before 2.1, and I have not seen the issue on 2.2 ROMs. If you are suffering from this, or suspect you are suffering from this, disable all the options in SuperPower to disable the cellular data connection.

- SuperUser: SuperPower does use a lot of root commands if you have root. You might want to configure SuperUser to not show toast notifications for every single request.

- State: Current state detection is not perfect yet and needs some improvements. I would advise trying to limit changing options in the application to times when Wi-Fi is off and you are in 3G mode as much as possible, just to be sure.

- Wi-Fi: Occasionally Wi-Fi and cellular data states will conflict, causing cellular data to be set to active when Wi-Fi is on. Happens sporadically.

- CPU Scaling: On the I9000 and family, you should (in my experience) enable the "ondemand" option if you are using CPU scaling. If you don't, and the device is in "suspend" mode, an incoming phonecall may crash the device.

- CPU Scaling: SuperPower makes no attempt to detect or disable perflock. If you have a perflocked device, you need to use SetCPU (or some other tool) to disable perflock on boot.

- CPU Scaling: SuperPower attempts to detect the possible CPU speed settings, and will choose the nearest value below half the maximum CPU speed as "low speed" frequency. The actual number chosen is stated in the description of the relevant option.

- CPU Scaling: I know some overclocked ROMs require the device to always be at this overclocked speed to prevent the device crashing during sleep. If you are using an overclocked ROM and encounter the "sleep of death", disable CPU Scaling.

- Roaming: SuperPower has not been tested while roaming at all. I suspect - but am by no means sure - there may be issues regarding the cellular data connection while roaming and you have set the device to disallow data entirely (while roaming). Let me know if you encounter any that seem directly related to roaming.

- Application specific: Applicatoin specific settings do not go into effect if the app is reached through the back-button, only if started through the launcher (or by some other app)

- Lock screen: Even if the "dont do ... while lockscreen visible" options are enabled, these actions may still happen if triggered by an application specific options

- 2G/3G: On some devices the device itself will automatically switch back to 3G, it will not stay in 2G for very long

Thank you. Will also test your application.
Interesting for me is the function, turning of data connection when wifi is active because this month, I've only gprs speed.
My Galaxy S downloaded Asphalt through the Data Connection although wifi was available...and I did this 2 times -_-

One "error", maybe missconfigured: If the screen is off, and I turn it back on I've no network.
Even the network from my provider was not active. So there is no phone connection nor receiving sms possible.
When I turn the screen back on, it rapidly connects to my provider.

Maybe you can give me a hint what I missconfigured

great app, it is working very well for me. Turns off data connection when screen is off and turns on every 15 minutes for 2 minutes to allow autosync. Exactly what I need for power saving since with 2g only and no active auto-sync I am saving a LOT of power.

When you mean the network is not "active", do you have a "white circle with a line through it" icon ?

Do you have 2G/3G switching enabled ? The above is exactly what would happen if:

- You have enabled switch to 2G when screen goes off, and you turn on the device while the device is switching to 2G

- You have enabled switch to 3G when screen goes on

In both cases it is a temporary situation that takes about 10 seconds to resolve. Unfortunately switching between 2G and 3G takes time.
