GPD XD - Kernel Adiutor - Elite Turbo Button


Summary:


This is a continuation of the Tutorial : GPD XD - Novice Guide to Legacy Rom 1.8GHz

    Having an app to change your CPU speed can be intimidating if you do not know much about it. This tutorial will show you how to add shortcuts to your home screen to make toggling speeds easy. The Elite Turbo Button is also very theme-able and is just a nice way to make it flashy.

I want to make more tutorials in the future using these apps. They are very powerful apps that can add a bunch of features to your android device. They are intimidating and it may take a while for me to figure it out, but once I do I will try and break the process down to make it easier for you. 

** You do not have to come from the tutorial: Novice Guide to Legacy Rom 1.8GHz  . But if you want to take advantage of this tutorial you must have the following :

  • Android device
  • Kernel Adiutor must be installed
  • Profiles properly setup for Kernel Adiutor

Before you get started:


  • You need to have completed the tutorial : Novice Guide to Legacy Rom 1.8GHz  If you did not complete tutorial you must:
    • ​Install Kernel Adiutor
    • Setup profiles for Kernel Adiutor
  • To install Turbo Button - Simple - ( the first button on tutorial )  You only need Kernel Adiutor installed.
  • To install Turbo Button - Popup - ( the second button on tutorial )  you need the following apps:
  • ​To install Turbo Button - Elite - ( the third button on tutorial )  you need the following apps:

​​** These are powerful apps. I would suggest investing in them ( Pro versions ). I will post more tutorials using them in future to make it worth your investment.


Turbo Button - Simple


    Kernel Adiutor creates a widget by default when you setup your profiles. It may seem complicated but I show you how to do it in this tutorial. Once you have set that up it's just a matter of going into your widgets and placing a shortcut on your home screen.

** This method is not gamepad friendly. This means you can not press the arrow keys to toggle each speed. You have to touch each speed with finger. **

Easy / Pro Tutorial

( I am using Square Home 2 Launcher as my Main launcher )

  • [Shown on video- time: 0:25 ]: Pinch the screen and tap on the Unlock icon at the center bottom. Icon will change from green to yellow.
  • [Shown on video- time: 0:27 ]: Tap on the [ + ]  icon.
  • [Shown on video- time: 0:29 ]: Tap on Widget.
  • [Shown on video- time: 0:33 ]: Tap on Android Widget.
  • [Shown on video- time: 0:37 ]: In your widget list look for and tap Kernel Adiutor.
  • That should be it. But if you want to adjust size:
    • [Shown on video- time: 0:39 ]: Long-press the widget you just created.
    • [Shown on video- time: 0:40 ]: Tap on the resize icon at the bottom right hand side of your widget.
    • [Shown on video- time: 0:44 ]: Adjust size to ( width: 2 ) ( Height: 3 ).
    • [Shown on video- time: 0:48 ]: Tap OK.

Test your buttons out. They should work fine. You will have to double tap each setting for it to take effect.


Turbo Button - Popup


    This brings up the Kernel Adiutor widget on its own screen - as a popup. This makes it look a bit nicer with a dimmed background.

** This method IS gamepad friendly. This means you CAN press the arrow keys to toggle each speed. **

Turbo Button - Elite


    This method is the most theme-able and nicer looking ways of adding toggle buttons to your GPD XD. You can integrate this button menu into your current GPD XD's theme. Make it super blingy or just simple. It is all up to you.

** This method is not gamepad friendly. This means you can not press the arrow keys to toggle each speed. You have to touch each speed with finger. **

  • To adjust the Popup Effects, just tap on Popup Widget icon and then tap on the config icon ( 3 vertical dots ). ( You wont be able to config them by just tapping on them anymore ,because they toggle speeds now. You must go into Popup Widget to config now. )
  • To adjust the Zooper Widgets just type on the app shortcut, then tap on Configure Widgets.

** I will try to add more info if I can think of it.
