Q: Xposed Framework features do not work in Pro version.
A: mnt/asec folder is not mounted yet at time xposed framework starts loading modules. That's why your paid app doesn't work. Xposed simply can't load it, because path doesn't exist.
As temporary workaround please try one of following tips:
- Go to mnt/asec/cooltool folder and copy apk file to external storage. Then install it as an usual app.
- Use Titanium Backup to make a backup and then uninstall the app (using Titanium backup). Then use Titanium backup to re-install the app.
- Install this module http://www.modaco.com/topic/361776-xmod-disable-play-store-encryption-mntasec/ (then reinstall cool tool from the store)
Q: Application doesn't work, crashes, failed to pop up floating panel, showing wrong values, located at wrong position, has wrong size, color etc. How to fix this?
A: Go to App settings -> Advanced -> Reset settings to defaults (note: this will reset only current settings preset). Default settings are suitable for most devices and users.
Q: I'm unable to find the "show panel" to toggle the panel
A: My mail box full of similar emails, so i decided to create detailed manual. See below :D
For modern and classic UI
Q: The panel pops up for a second then goes away.
A: Disable "Hide in fullscreen apps" preference. The panel hides because your device doesn't have status bar.
Q: Why CPU temp feature not implemented?
A: This feature implemented partially via custom labels. Try to play with predefined paths. If doesn't help, try to search any info about your device cpu temp file on XDA forum.
Q: Why I can't setup floating panel over status bar/navigation bar
A: Install Xposed Framework and you will get additional overlay modes (and don't forget to root your device)
Q: Notification of "Cool tool is running" has appeared in persistent notifications part of notification bar. I really hate this! What is this???
The only way to disable notification is disabling "Keep in Memory" preference. But i do not recommend it.
Q: Cannot move it to the Right, only up and down...
A: Make sure your panel width is less than screen width ;) (tip: open sliders tab and reduce "panel width" slider value)
Q: I hate floating windows. I want a widget!
A: Sorry, floating window is main concept of this app. No plans to implement widget at this moment.
Q: I hate floating windows. Is it possible to inject panel directly in the status bar?
A: Well, yes! Just install Xposed Framework and enable this feature in the xposed tab (root is required)
Q: Is it possible to implement FPS meter?
A: At this moment no :(
Q: Cellular signal meter doesn't work on my Galaxy Note
A: Its ok. Some Samsung devices has a firmware bug (or feature?) so just accept it as is.

Q: I would like to buy the PRO version but it's not on the Play Store
A: Sorry, not my fault. This is due to Google regional restrictions. No way to upload payed apps from my country.

A: Ok. I hate it too. But all permissions are required for providing such rich functionality:

SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW "Stay On Top" feature
INTERNET & ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - Ad banner
ACCESS_WIFI_STATE - WiFi Signal determine
VIBRATE - haptic feedback
KILL_BACKGROUND_PROCESSES & RESTART_PACKAGES - Task Killer
CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE - GSM Signal feature
ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION - Num Of GPS Sats feature
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - Backup settings to sdcard
MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS & RECORD_AUDIO - equalizer & VU
READ_PHONE_STATE - some phone models required this permission for cell signal reading.
Q: How can I backup my settings?
A: It's done automatically. All your preset slots stored in cooltool_presets folder on sd-card. It is simple xml preference file. If something going wrong you can rename any of presets to "cpuoverlay.xml" and put it to /data/data/ds.cpuoverlay/shared_prefs folder.
There is also Backup to Cloud feature in the advanced tab.
