________________ FAQ
  1. will it work on kernel X
    It is made to work on stock kernel. It might work on kernels which are close to stock. I will however try to find a way to make it as compatible as possible. I'm going to assume that you can safely try this mod on your kernel (but don't enable set-on-boot) worst case scenario is a reboot.

  2. does this consume battery
    Short answer - Maybe.
    Long answer - this might bring some drain, some users report quite a big battery drain some not, I will address this issue in some time. Check yourself how much an issue it is for you. Also this change from device to device so there is no short answer (look up)

  3. will it break my touchscreen
    Short answer - No
    Long answer - Digitizer is not mechanical so it shouldn't break. The same mod works for more then 2 years on my Galaxy Nexus and it never lost a bit of it's responsiveness

  4. why do I have to pay
    Why did you pay for your phone? You did save a few bucks on the phone which was cheap. Now is your chance to make those savings worthy ;)

  5. if I want to marry you where can I find you?
    Oh... this question meant to go somewhere else ;P And I'm taken.

After several hours' testing, i found that PGM for nexus4 is nearly perfect, except one bug. When my nexus4 was waken up by incoming phones or just waken by me, the screen would keep awaken unless i lock it manually. Im 100% sure that i did NOT turn the "stay awake" in dev option on. Have you ever found this bug?

Hmm no :/ I'll take a look at this. Which kernel are you using?

Im using the original 4.2.1. This issue did not appear after i reboot the phone. But, there is another issue about energy cost. I turned airplane mode on and kill all the background process except system process while i was going to sleep last night. 8 hours later, the battery decreased from 45% to 36%, i think this is a big issue

Are you sure PGM is the cause?

sort of.... maybe it needs more test. How about your phone using PGM? does the battery decrease ~2% in airplane mode during the whole night?

if you don't touch the device it shouldn't bring any additional drain. It only uses slightly more battery when you touch the screen.
