Notes

Sweep2wake:
disable = 0
sweep right = 1
sweep left = 2
sweep up = 4
sweep down = 8

Add them together. For example, to enable sweep2wake in every direction:
echo 15 > /sys/android_touch/sweep2wake


Sweep2sleep:
disable = 0
sweep right = 1
sweep left = 2
sweep left or right = 3

eg: enable sweep2sleep left
echo 2 > /sys/android_touch/sweep2sleep


Doubletap2wake:
enable = 1
disable = 0

eg: enable doubletap2wake:
echo 1 > /sys/android_touch/doubletap2wake

I will remove forceencrypt on the next version.

It's up to each user to choose, but I actually think encrypting personal data is a nice feature.
It is a nice feature but it causes problems with people who are decrypted because if they plan on decrypting again theyll have to wipe their internal storage which can be troublesome for users.

My favorite kernel from the n5 is here! Thank you! Can't wait to see more features like fast charge!
Definitely not going to get a faster charge than what is already built in. I'm pretty sure the nexus 5 had the same feature but it was not available on stock ROM or kernel

Fast charge means USB fast charge.
For instance most car charges are only detected as USB charge and will only draw 500mv even though the charger is rated higher. Fast charge allows you to override the default USB 500mv limit and allow a higher current to be pulled.

Solution: charge it at home :p

Edit: is it just me or what, I'm not getting deep sleep. Went back to stock and deep sleep. Nothing else changed. Anyone else? I know its alpha. Just asking.

Bug Report : I flashed this on a AOSP rom and home and recents buttons disappeared, a reboot and davlik cache wipe didn't fix.

Mine deeps sleeps just fine. This is basically the stock kernel. The main difference is I built it with the linaro toolchain.

Absolutely not kernel related in any way shape or form.

    Update!!!

    -Add camera launch gesture, activated by swiping down when the screen is off. For this to work, you must have "Press power button twice for camera" enabled in settings. All the same caveats as other wake gestures apply to this feature.

    -Fix reboot if wake gesture is enabled and screen times out right after boot

    -Prevent BCL driver from hotplugging (I think this will fix the third and fourth cores coming back online with performance gov)

    -Fix elementalx.conf, it wasn't saving properly for use with express version (express version wasn't keeping settings)



    Download:
    ElementalX-N6-3.08



    Changes:
    -add camera launch gesture
    -improve stability
    -stop BCL hotplug

    Update!!!


    I have removed the enforcing option from the installer. Selinux is enforcing by default, just as it was before. Removing this option will allow you to use setenforce again. There is no reason to run in permissive mode, but if you must, then use the permissive.zip found here: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23991606952602503




    Download:
    ElementalX-N6-3.10



    Changes:
    -remove enforcing option (use permissive.zip if necessary)
    -increase default input boost time
