High performance & power saving tweaks for all devices (THAT ACTUALLY WORK)
LKT is a cumilation of different strategies that target certain kernel settings. What makes this special and stand out from the crowd is being universal and device specific at the same time. And it's also BS free. Using simple functions LKT detects the hardware of your device then it applies the corresponding changes. It does support all mainstream platforms including Snapdragon, Kirin, MediaTek etc. covering hundreds of devices.
These tweaks have been tested and can stand up to 12-14H of SOT with no-compromise on performance all smooth as a baby's bottom.
However, it should be noted that this does not apply to gaming, facebook, snapchat, instagram and heavy camera usage ...etc
Nothing can be done for anything that is an automatic battery killer and forces maximum resources usage at all the time.
How does it work?
LKT aims to achieve a balance between power consumption and performance. Compared to tuning the parameters manually, LKT adopts Project WIPE open source interactive parameters for all mainstream SOCs that are generated via machine learning AI and can adapt to multiple styles of workload sequences. This idea is similar to EAS, which takes into account both performance and power consumption costs through power consumption models and workload sequence. But obviously, EAS has a much lower response time and replaces tuning with decision logic. In addition, it also includes other parameter tuning, such as HMP scheduler parameters, virtual Memory, GPU, IO blocks tuning, and doze rules to unify the rest of the kernel parameters for a more consistent experience.
LKT also supports schedutil and other EAS governors in devices like the Pixel 2. Unlike interactive, schedutil does not provide a wide range of tuning parameters but there are some workarounds. In Snapdragon 835 for example depending on what profile is selected, LKT limits the maximum frequency of big cores accordingly because big clusters power efficiency of SD835 dramatically decreases above 2 GHz, as a trade of losing 15% performance, improving power consumption by 40% or more is a much better deal.
- Improved smoothness & battery life
- Advanced interactive governor tuning (Project WIPE)
- EAS devices Support
- RAM management enhancements
- IO blocks enhancements
- Enabled & configured wakelock blocking
- Disabled a excessive logging at kernel level (Improves battery life as well as performance)
- Other miscellaneous adjustments to enhance power efficiency
Battery - Can acheive ~2 hours or more longer on-screen battery life, may lag in some scenarios where the load fluctuates dramatically.
Balanced - Can acheive ~1.5 hours or more longer on-screen battery life with little performance compromise .(Recommended)
Performance - Can acheive ~1 hour longer on-screen battery life , same as balanced profile with more responsiveness. .
Turbo - Ideal for intense high demanding tasks, where the load drastically fluctuate (not necessarily in games) . Will ensure reducing lags by ~90% for no more than ~20% increase power in consumption.
- Flash in TWRP or Magisk manager
- Follow the given instructions
