Yeah, I saw it, a little to late. I'm having same issues with Beta app as yergeny. Problem is, the touch screen still seems to be improved. I'm not on multirom. Running Pure Nexus MM, did a full wipe and installed yesterday, and ElementalX. No xposed.

Yeah, the new touch screen calibration seems to also be stored inside the touchscreen controller as well as the kernel, which is why it's still better.

I confirm my system is working well now. I installed over my previous one and it worked.
Good job, man.

Hi ! Can this Mod be used on KitKat and SuperSU 2.46? Or I need the latest version of SuperSU ?

Yes, you don't need a specific version anymore

Working well
I still run into situations where my device starts to freeze up horribly (this happens regardless of kernel or ROM.) I was hoping parrotmod might solve this but it seems to be device specific, pretty confident its a hardware issue.

Otherwise working well in app form, general responsiveness seems better with this mod. I would love an option for disabling the script in the app for testing purposes, but its definetly not needed when I can just freeze it with titanium and restart. Also touchscreen fix is awesmazing. Seriously, good work on that.

One issue is that during low memory situations the app (and maybe script?) appears to be killed but then it restarts itself reinitializing the script. This is fine, as its better than the script just dying. I would love to see the speaker buzzing fix come to the app as well.

Edit: Seems to restart around the 300mb free mark. I can also trigger this by closing the parrotmod app from my recent apps list.

Oh, yeah, there is a long-standing bug (since 4.4.1!) In Android where an apps services all restart when you close it from recent apps. I tried to work around it but not totally sure if it fixed it. In order to fix it I might need to add a persistent notification but you could just uncheck show notifications in app info.

The freezing thing is definitely a hardware issue, sorry.

I'll add the disable option, it's super easy. The speaker buzzing fix is a bit harder to add because it involves setting a ro.audio.* property, which normally can only be in build.prop. There is a program called setpropex which gets around that, but it needs to be recompiled for lollipop because it's not a PIE executable. My NDK installation isn't behaving very well. Also, if I kill mediaserver (needed to reload that property even after setpropex), it goes back to the boot animation, and then the app reloads, which kills mediaserver again, and then... uh-oh. Also I would like to fix the issue with the touch sounds being cut off, it really irritates me.


P.S. thanks for coining the word "awesmazing". It's an awesmazing portmanteau.

Yknow I had a feeling it was android, I remember a bunch of apps having to add persistent notifications to get around such a thing. I thought it would have been fixed by now with marshmallow lol. A persistent would be good in the future.

Off topic about my hardware issue, unrelated to parrotmod:
Yeah, what it does is it gets REALLY slow, like as if I were to underclock the CPU to 386mhz, and the GPU to like 100mhz and cut down useable ram to like 100mb free (everything starts crashing). All sorts of screen tearing touches respond like 10 seconds later and a buttload of lag. It's pretty crazy. Then after awhile it craps itself and freezes up completely... I've check my clocks, io activity to make sure nothing weirds going on but nope. I think either my CPU or RAM is damaged. I once had a PSP that behaved similarly, also it wouldn't load games off of the memory stick without flexing the mobo LOL


Yeah, I see why that would be problematic, sounds like a PITA. I might try editing your fix into my build.prop in the meantime. Is it just the one line?: "ro.audio.flinger_standbytime_ms=50".
