    It work with simple installing and NO ROOT. But the smart manager app detected it ass a virus or something and keeps poping up all the time, my advice is to install it and enable the options ( if u like them) then uninstall it and it’s all good the changes don’t go away. If u need to reverse the settings just install again the app and then delete it again 😉
    Thanks for this app
