Change Your Kernel Without Flashing A New One Thanks to IncrediControl

The joy of flashing a new kernel has its pros and cons. For starters, the pros are that your device will likely be getting new fixes for hardware support like camera support, wifi, etc, as well as improved device handling capabilities such as overclocking, undervolting, increasing volume levels, adding openVPN support, and so much more. On the other hand, the cons of constantly flashing your devices with new kernels is that it becomes tedious and time consuming. Plus, sometimes newer kernels can sometimes break things that were already working well. If your only reason for installing a kernel is so that you can have new voltage handling scripts as well as a few other tweaks, and if you have an Incredible, then you should really drop by to check out the app created by XDA member chad0989. Incredicontrol was designed to control all the available tweaking parameters of Incredikernel with ease and from a rather friendly user interface. Keep in mind that this is in very alpha stages, so if you are not comfortable with dealing with bugs, you may want to wait until this becomes beta.

Feedback is very important, so if you can try it out, please leave your thoughts on it and better yet, your more technical feedback.

Here’s a preview (i.e. alpha) build of the new IncrediControl apk I’ve been working on. Using it, you can easily control both incredikernel modifications (audio boost toggle, USB fast charging) and HAVS voltages. I’m considering it only a preview build because there are a few things left I haven’t gotten to implement yet:
