About this app

This is just a donation package which activates some experimental features in the Greenify app. These features can be enabled in settings of Greenify.

=== Disclaimer ===

Some of these experimental features are still in early stage. They may not work on all devices & ROMs. They are included only for advanced users with sufficient knowledge about what they really mean and how to correctly use them. These features may cause malfunction or crash in apps. In rarely extreme case, you might need to factory reset your device to recover. I will try my best to avoid those situations, but take no responsibility for the possible consequences.

It is safe to purchase and install, since nothing is affected until any of the experimental features is enabled explicitly.

=== Experimental Features ===

◆ Allow (most) system apps to be greenified in Greenify

Beware, most system apps are critical to the basic functionality of your device, once greenified, you may lose some part of usability. If something bad happens, degreenify the system apps you recently greenified and reboot, or deactivate this experimental features of Greenify and reboot.

◆ Boost mode (requires Xposed)

Android framework is patched to allow Greenify to perform hibernation and other operations without the slow root routine. Besides, Boost mode also improves compatibility of many features in Greenify.

◆ Allow GCM push message to wake hibernated apps (requires Xposed)

Google service framework is patched to allow the GCM (Google Cloud Message, a.k.a. C2DM) broadcast to wake the hibernated apps, thus you can greenify some apps without losing the ability to receive push message.

Attention: Not all apps use GCM as push mechanism, some apps create their own connection for push in background service, thus can't benefit from this patch and their push messages can never survive hibernation. Please DO NOT ask for that, it's just a "mission impossible" in practice. Instead, ask their developer to adopt the more RAM-and-battery-friendly GCM push.

◆ Reveal hidden sync tasks (requires Xposed)

Some apps may contain hidden sync tasks which runs periodically, but cannot be disabled by user in system Settings - Account - Sync. This feature reveals those hidden sync tasks and let you to disable them.


=== Xposed Installation ===

1. Download and install Xposed installer: http://goo.gl/CKTWXZ
2. Install the “Framework" in the "Xposed Installer" and activate "Greenify" in "Modules".
3. Reboot

=== Why do I need to install another framework for some features to work? ===

Since these experimental features all need OS level patches, traditionally they can only be applied with ROM modding, which is highly device-specific and ROM-exclusive. Xposed framework is a new hope to do finer grained tiny patches in a ROM-independent way. Thanks to Xposed framework, you can enjoy these experimental features of Greenify without replacing your ROM.

I love Greenify. Works fine for me on my rooted Android 12 Pixel 3 XL. I removed it for a bit but my battery wouldn't survive the night. With Greenify, things work great. Given that the app hasn't been updated in years, it may or may not work on your phone ... but on LineageOS, it seems to do just fine (just don't use aggressive doze). Shame there isn't a more modern version as everyone says Android has it built-in now but I haven't found that to be true.

6 stars! Worth it. Been using it for years. Good concept and great execution. Always one of the first apps I install on any new device (rooted or not). I don't have a lot of money but I would have donated for this even if the free version already had premium features. Thanks guys. Messing with island also. HTC 10 still gets freakishly hot (design flaw - all HTC's). Any additional ideas to cut down on needless cpu usage? Does it with screen off. Sorry such a long review.

I got this just because the baseline application does a great job and I wanted to support it, I don't use the experimental features because depending on phone installing the xposed framework may cause your phone to soft lock or boot loop which can essentially brick your phone if you don't know how to fix it from that state. but I do use the features that required debugging permissions and it seems like it makes a great app even better and more useful, so be careful.
