Alternatively, identify and address root cause vs masking symptoms. Not sure how one scores +2h SOT improvement tweaking alarms/wakelocks when the device is already awake.
Sounds like you have a bad actor in you app suite as there is no other obvious commonality across the various platforms and ROMs in your device portfolio. Amplify is simply muzzling the bad actor(s). If it is working for you, then great. I'd rather solve the real problem.Nope, the device isn't awake. Accidentally turned off Xposed some day ago and just after 3% of discharging I've noticed that something has been very bad to battery. 18-20 minut SOT discharges normally within 3% with Amplify and Xposed activated and with accidentally deactivated, not even 10 minutes. Exactly the same usage. Used this module on LG G3, LG G2 Kitkat/Lollipop stock and RR 7.1.2 and it always worked as expected. Less improvement on LG phones when flashed RR roms over stock KK/LL. So far 7h30min SOT within 48h since last charge on 3300mAh (~2800 measured in AccuBattery) battery is quite decent result. Thank you Amplify.
Sure, the way your devices are configured you (apparently) need to whack wakelocks to achieve the same "SOT" that is obtainable on a clean build of a stable rom/kernel with a well behaved app portfolio. I get it...works for you.
Firstly, you forget that every phones are different. I use redmi note 4 snapdragon and I can easily get around 10 hours SOT with 40 hours on time per charge cycle. All I use is custom kernel (franco kernel) without needing to tweak anything else, let alone block any wakelock.
Lol - 8,000 variables rolled into a simple (albeit inaccurate) summarization.
Well, in my opinion to call it "snake oil" is a bit harsh. To be fair, this app actually worked for older versions of android. Unfortunately, it just became obsolete now, especially since doze was implemented. So rather than call it "snake oil", I'd prefer to call it "expired medication" insteadLol - 8,000 variables rolled into a simple (albeit inaccurate) summarization.
SOT a horrible metric that is rarely reproducible on one device not to mention the vast portfolio of gizmos and configs representing the Android marketplace. If snake oil is your preference keep drinking the coolaid.
Agreed. The developer was well-intentioned and produced an innovative app to catalog and limit (vs completely block) alarms, wakelocks and select system services. However, numerous issues with this approach quickly became evident as documented in this thread and elsewhere. Erratic device behavior, spontaneous reboots, missed notifications, wakelock storms, high CPU utilization, phones that wouldn't ring, increased battery drain just to call out a few. Still, it was best-of-breed at the time and one of the leading tools used to reign in bad behavior of both Android (pre-Marshmallow) and nasty apps that abused background permissions. All that began to change with the introduction of Doze and Google's tightening policies regarding 'bad' behaviors.Well, in my opinion to call it "snake oil" is a bit harsh.

All Hail AmplifyThanks to you man for this wonderful app.... Rightly said nowadays I'm not using it, but for all the time i didn't with it i was happy... Appreciate your efforts...
I still have an old android which i plan to keep using with android 8 i think... So if you ever do continue it i defibrillator will be using it.
