Update for SFOS 2.0.1 and newer

Seeing as how the last update was over a year before Sailfish X was released, a valid question would be if this package works on the Xperia X. Also, after 3 years the question about what enabling powersave mode actually does has still not been answered.

I see the icon in settings in "system" section instead of "info" section like your screenshots.

It's not a big deal to be reported. And i'm so lazy to update screenshots, because it doesnt matter .

I did not have icons on the left of the menu "Powersave" in Settings.

After some investiggations I have found that the icons of Powersave were in Folder "/opt/alien/usr/share/themes/jolla-ambient/meegotouch/icons/" but all others icons are in Folder "/opt/alien/usr/share/themes/sailfish-default/meegotouch/z1.0/icons/".

This command (as root) solved the problem:

# mv /opt/alien/usr/share/themes/jolla-ambient/meegotouch/icons/*.png /opt/alien/usr/share/themes/sailfish-default/meegotouch/z1.0/icons/

Or you can do this with File Browser and FBRoot, if not so confident with command line.
edit: no root needed.

And the two icons disappeared again from the options page after the latest update. Doesn't matter, great tweak!

Andrey, can you update it for Tablet, please.

coderus's picture

sorry i have reflashed my tablet to android, but i can try to remove dependency on psmdbus, i hope system dbus module contains fixies for my problem.

Schturman's picture

Yes, please, try to create without dependencies. Thanks.

No, doesn't work if i force installation. The settings just doesn't open. :(

coderus's picture

what no? i didn't asked to force install package, because it wont work this way :)

codeandcreate's picture

Hm, ok i thought it doesn't matter if i install with --nodeps or if i alter the package... could you maybe remove dependency? ^^

For me the patch is working on SFOS but for a battery threshold >25% it's always on powersaving mode.

Will this work on Sailfish 2.0.10 ?

Do you know what settings the jolla powersave mode should change? I have installed this and set it to be very conservative however I could not find any change at all. For example when I checked the CPU governor it still was ramped up to max. I had to change it manually in order to powersave. :/

It just enabling system "powersave" option, which is not yet bind to any UI elements. And how it works internally i don't know.

kanakodavis's picture

Thank you very much for clarification. I try to dig into it and find out what it does.

Yeah, I mean, how does it save power? Limiting processing power, cutting data connections or reducing wake up ticks?

coderus's picture

You need to ask Jolla about it, not me :)

forgrimm's picture

:-D Thanks anyway to provide a gui for it to us! You're so fast with such useful small plugins or patches :)

forgrimm's picture

What does powersave mode change?

coderus's picture

It changing powersave state of device. When enabled it starting working after battery level <= threshold value, when forced it's always working.
