BLOX2: KCAL – Sovoca’s Color Calibration

This is my OnePlus One with my KPPD control app.

Another update to the BLOX2 (BLU Life One X2) kernel, I just added Sovoca’s KCAL color calibration for the screen! You can check out the commit on GitLab, but unfortunately, while it builds without error, it doesn’t function quite right. I am looking into the commits further and considering KPPD as well. It’s all part of my video series for modifying 64 bit kernels, which you can check out on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnGqG_jyyXmTzdamBpKfeHA

Updated KPPD Control app for Android Oreo!

Now that Oreo is out, I needed to go through my apps and make adjustments and updates for the new platform. One of the biggest problems I found was that of the KPPD Control app.

For some reason, assets in the asset folder are not transferring with the apk. I fiddled with this for a while, but became so frustrated that I eventually gave up. Instead, I moved the kppd file to the /res/raw folder. The difference is, the asset folder is copied to the drive, while the raw files are hidden in the app, I think. Either way, it worked great!

And I have updated the Play Store, as well as posting the new apk on GitHub.
