SKU Kernel Remote: Open Source Configuration App for Any Kernel

Having a wide selection of different kernels to choose from on your phone or tablet can be a great thing. Having such choice allows the user to apply various different tweaks and optimizations, depending of course on whether that particular kernel supports them. However, these different options are usually enabled via some kind of kernel-specific configuration app. Therefore, switching kernel may also require switching apps to make certain changes. SKU Kernel Remote, the work of XDA Recognized Developer twistedumbrella, is an attempt to alleviate this inconvenience by allowing you to configure whichever kernel you flash from just one application.

Originally intended for Nexus devices, this project has since been expanded to cover other devices as well, and should (in theory) work right across the board. That is of course not to say that this will be flawless from the word go. Early feedback in the thread indicates that there may well be challenges posed by specific kernels that will need to be overcome as they arise. Due to the open source nature of the application, this project isn’t reliant on one single developer having to face all these issues alone. In the loosely paraphrased words of the late John Lennon;

“Imagine all the kernels, configured from just one app.”

The application supports all the common tweaks you would expect to find, such as CPU frequencies/governors/voltages, color/gamma, and vibration intensity, right through to manufacturer-specific options such as a diagnostic mode specifically for HTC devices and the optimization of HTC Sense. It is also capable of backing up and restoring your settings. If you’d like to try this for yourself, head on over to the forum thread for more info.
