THIS APP IS FOR ROOTED DEVICES ONLY !!!.
This app allows you to disable/kill KSM (Kernel SamePage Merging) feature and ksmd daemon on your ROOTED device. As a benefit you get better battery life and more CPU cycles for your apps.
It's mainly intended for users of Nexus S, where the latest official 4.1.2 update enables this feature by default, but it leads in increasing of battery consumption. Benefit of using KSM on Nexus S is IMHO too marginally in exchange for increased battery and CPU consumption.
You can read about KSM here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel_SamePage_Merging_(KSM).
