About this app

EX Kernel Manager (EXKM) is the ultimate root tool for backup and flashing kernels, tweaking color, sound, gestures and other kernel settings. EXKM gives you total control over your hardware with premium features and a simple and modern user interface.

** Your device must be ROOTED to fully use this app

** This app works with ALL devices and kernels. ElementalX is not required.

** Some advanced features such as wake gestures, color and sound control require a compatible custom kernel

Dashboard: your homepage within the app, Dashboard summarizes your current settings and shows real-time CPU and GPU frequencies, temperatures, memory usage, uptime, deep sleep, battery level and temperature, governors, and i/o settings.

Battery Monitor: the most accurate way to measure battery life. EXKM's Battery Monitor is designed to show battery statistics that you can use to optimize battery life scientifically. EXKM Battery Monitor measures % battery use per hour and gives separate statistics for screen off (idle drain) and screen on (active drain). It automatically measures only when the battery is discharging so you never have to remember to reset the stats or create markers.

Script Manager: easily create, share , edit, execute and test shell scripts (requires SuperSU or Magisk)

Flash and Backup: save and restore kernel and recovery backups, flash any boot.img, recovery zip, Magisk module or AnyKernel zip. Import custom kernel JSON configs

CPU Settings: easily create, share and load CPU governor profiles for maximum battery life. Adjust max frequency, min frequency, CPU governor, CPU boost, hotplugging, thermals and voltage (if supported by kernel/hardware)

Graphics Settings: Max frequency, min frequency, GPU governor and more.

Advanced Color Control: RGB controls, saturation, value, contrast, hue and K-Lapse. Save, load and share custom profiles. (requires kernel support)

Wake Gestures: sweep2wake, doubletap2wake, sweep2sleep, haptic feedback, camera gesture, wake timeout and more (requires kernel support).

Custom User Settings: This feature allows you to add any kernel setting you want. Kernel settings are located in the /proc and /sys directories. Navigate to the desired path and quickly and easily add the setting to the app where it can be changed on the fly or applied at boot. Plus you can easily import/export your custom settings and share with other users.

Memory Settings: adjust zRAM, KSM, lowmemorykiller, and virtual memory settings

Sound Control: adjust speaker, headphone and mic gain. Supports elementalx, fauxsound, franco sound control, and others (requires kernel support).

CPU Times: Show CPU frequency usage and deep sleep, and optionally sort by most used frequencies.

Update or Install ElementalX: Get notified and quickly download and install the ElementalX Kernel on supported devices.

Many other settings: i/o scheduler, readahead kb, fsync, zRAM, KSM, USB fastcharge, TCP congestion algorithm, last kernel log, magnetic cover control, memory settings, entropy settings, Vox Populi and much more!

One of my favorite apps! Set you goveners for your CPU, have them apply on boot, there is a performance mode and a power saving mode, and the power saving mode can automatically turn on at 15% battery life! The power save mode can also turn off my mid and large cores , leaving only my small cores active, or underclock the CPU to half max! Saves loads of power and the system works fine. Couple with switching all goveners to Conservative and you have perfect power save mode. Amazing, recommended!

I love this app for settings. The UI is really friendly and organised to get things done quickly, and the speed the overall CPU stats refreshes at is the fastest I've ever seen, which is great for making more precise observations. One thing that gets me though - using the Powersave and Performance modes I find doesn't change the clock speeds from their desired settings. If I use performance, those clocks will stay the same if I disable it, or go to Powersave. Then if I try Powersave, the clock speeds will still be the same as when I enabled performance. This is the one caveat that really gets to me, otherwise I'd give this app a straight 10/10. I really hope you can have a look into this :)
