________________ SCREENSHOTS



________________ FAQ
  1. will it work on kernel X
    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.

  2. 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. Also this change from device to device so there is no short answer (look up)

  3. will it break my touchscreen
    Short answer - No
    Long answer - Digitizer is not mechanical so it shouldn't break. The same mod works for more then 2 years on my Galaxy Nexus and it never lost a bit of it's responsiveness

  4. 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

  5. if I want to marry you where can I find you?
    Oh... this question meant to go somewhere else ;P And I'm taken.

REALTIME MODULE REQUESTS STATS PER KERNEL ____________
Quick info about stats - it shows how much requests I'm getting for each kernel. So even if there is no module for that kernel it will be accounted as request. Also only one request per user per day is accounted. These stats are from last 7 days.

Per-Device stats


Nexus 4


Long story:
When you press download at the module loader prompt I am actually getting info about your kernel. This is added to the stats if haven't requested during last 24 hours.
