    Love this app, but some of the functionality is broken on Lollipop. For example, I can no longer disable the pattern lock when at home. Running a Nexus 4 with stock Lollipop + SuperSU. Latest updates did not fix it, still failing to disable pattern lock.

    I got this to 'toggle' mobile data using tasker after my Nexus 5 updated to lollipop. Tasker alone was good enough prior to update. But it turns out that this app also has the same problem and cannot toggle mobile data.

    This is a great tool. My only problem is that the System+ module is unable to gain root access, even though I've set SuperSU to allow it. Running a CM-based 4.4.4 ROM (InspireOS by jlmancuso) on a Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (SPH-L900).

    Great app, you need root. I bought it specifically so it can lock and unlock my phone when I'm near a trusted WiFi and disable background data. This is one of the only apps that can actually do this. I also has other features that I have yet to discover. The PIN lock somewhat works but the functionality is broken in Android 5 at the moment, I'm patiently waiting on the fix.

    Even with supersu correctly granting permissions (confirmed in log and toast) does not correctly detect and enable the system+ module...
