EX Kernel Manager 3.74 is rolling out on the Play Store now...

It adds full spport for the Pixel 3 XL, including vibration control, HBM setting and ability to download and directly flash ElementalX or any other kernel that uses the AnyKernel2 format.

There are two new settings for the wake gestures:
Vibrate on wake: This will vibrate when you use a gesture to wake the device (e.g. sweep2wake or double tap)
Vibrate on sweep2sleep: This will vibrate when you use sweep2sleep to turn off the screen


High brightness mode works a bit differently on this device. Instead of going to max, it just increases the backlight at the current brightness setting. I will add support to my HBM app soon. I may also change this behavior in the kernel, as I prefer it to just go to max on demand.

Just installed on Pixel 3.
On sweep to wake or double tab to wake, phone keeps vibrating.
Only way to stop this is a reboot.
I have to wait for EX Kernel Manager update I guess.


[EDIT]

Udated Kernel Manager.
All working now.

Thank you very much for bringing this kernel to the Pixel 3

Thank you for all of this, seems like vibration and HBM works on other kernels too :) I see that the old method of HBM works well with HBM app, but I kinda like the new method too, I could basically just enable it and leave it always on if it doesn't interfere with auto brightness (as long as HBM app can restore the state after screen off, which it currently doesn't).

I'm seriously contemplating on thoughts of RMA now that EXKM added vibration control. I think mine might be a bit faulty, because vibration motor makes louder than normal sound when tapping. But now I can tune it make the haptics feel perfect and silent. I'm beyond thankful!

EDIT: edited the quote a bit

The kernel works fine with substratum.

I've flashed, rebooted, and tested a few themes, all without issue.

What version of Magisk are you using? Canary, beta or stable?
It seems the reboots stops when I unplugged the phone. Running just on battery, it's fine.
My other issue, substratum isn't working and I remember reading something in the Pixel 2 threads about this kernel not working well with it.

    I have the app. If what you want is for us to pay you, fine. I've already paid for the kernel manager app AND the HBM app. I don't care about the money. I just want a HBM that doesn't suck, and the app sucks compared to the new "google HBM" (not to mention it's an app, another thing we have to download and set up and give permissions to).

    I don't agree with the excuse that "it's not supposed to remain on". The whole point of the kernel app is to let us tweak and overclock and automate things that we "aren't supposed to". At least give us the option to let it remain on. It's method for handling high brightness across the slider range is better than how the HBM app does it.

    Why don't you just code it up yourself then
