Works great on my Google Pixel XL running flar2's ElementalX kernel version 1.0 and using his EX Kernel Manager. Now my Pixel can get just as bright as my Note 3/4/5 and Moto X Pure phones did.
Must have app Max brightness in 1 click, Gets even better with 7.0+ Can set it in QS tiles
Glad I came looking for this. Just one thing though, I can't get auto HBM to work. I'm sure it's something dumb I'm doing but double tapping does nothing for me. How high of a Lux reading does it need to activate? Running Pixel XL with Franco Kernel, rooted of course. Edit: I already tried before asking about it here, used my Nexus 5 flashlight and a 100w lightbulb. I haven't actually needed it since its been cloudy everyday but if I have issues in the Sun I'll let you know.
Working with Pixel XL Didn't realize this had an AUTO mode that works PERFECT!

Some bugs with the app I think I pinpointed this app to be causing problems like wifi turning off when turned on, and setting my screen timeout to ().
