### App features ###
# Power
--> Charger Control: Adjust AC / USB-PD / Wireless / USB 3.0 / USB 2.0 / max Input Current in 100 mA Steps, Range: 200 - 3000/3500 mA (S8/S8+)
--> Fast (Wireless) Charging even with Screen ON (make sure to use an active cooling pad for Wireless)
--> Shows the actual,
accepted Charging (input) Current
input Voltage
Battery Temp in °C / °F
--> Battery care support (e.g. stop charging at 95 % to reduce battery capacity loss)
--> Battery idle feature (power supply your S8 over cable or wireless without to use the battery - useful for DeX or Gaming)
--> Ability to disable water detection if needed

# Audio
--> Volume + / - over the App - useful if the Hardware Buttons are broken

# Screen
--> Turn the Screen OFF over the App

--> OC Control:
--> BIG CPU: 741 - 2808 MHz
--> LITTLE CPU: 455 - 2002 MHz
--> Set max_freq for Screen OFF for both CPUs
--> BIG CPU Cool Freq (DVFS) - Ability to set higher Max Freq limit when the device is hot and should cool down, i.e. stock is 1469 MHz but you can set it to 1807 MHz or higher in order to avoid too big performance drops from thermal throttling
--> Check if BIG CPU Max Freq is actually throttled from thermal driver
--> CPUSET Control for both CPUs - allows you to disable unstable cores in order to get higher stable OC rate !

--> Freq Control:
--> Ability to reduce max_freq - Range 260 - 572 MHz
--> Ability to fully disable DVFS, i.e. no GPU performance drops at all while the device is getting hot (fail-safe)

# Hardcoded Performance Profiles
--> Powersave (UC)
--> Balanced (UC)
--> Performance (Kernel default)
--> Performance Plus / Gaming (OC)

--> Memory Management Control:
--> LMK - very easy and fail-safe method to adjust the amount of Free RAM - improving Multitasking. Range: 16 - 256 MB | Default: 64 MB
--> zRam - LZ4 compressed swap block-device in RAM (Multitasking) (25 %, 50 % or 75 % of the RAM Size)
--> Ability to drop all caches and buffers (to free some RAM)

# Network
--> Enable Kernel Support for Network File Systems: CIFS and NFS
--> TCP Congestion Algorithm (cubic, new reno, bic, westwood+)

# Misc
--> Flashlight Brightness Control - up to 3 times brighter than with Stock Kernel ! Range: 1 - 15 | Default: 5
--> Adjust LED-RGB blink delays (for missed notifications / low battery)
--> LED-RGB: Optimize RED GREEN and BLUE LED separately (higher brightness in the darkness)
--> Accelerometer Calibration

# Debug (in-App-menu)
--> Disable restoring of te settings on reboot - if you are not sure whether the settings are stable
