Greenify: Save Battery And Hibernate Apps Without Root

Android operating system, allows us to terminate processes or tasks through your task manager.This application will be fully closed. But what use the concept of  hibernation ? In this way we can optimize the use of our batteries and RAM , avoiding unnecessary background processes running.


This, as we mentioned , appeared an application called Greenify . The app allows us said hibernation (fails to close applications, but avoid running background processes) to automatically .

Greenify allowed us to choose the applications you want to automatically hibernate, listed by their background processes.

Moreover, it is  free , although there is a version that carries a donation, which also allows us to hibernate system applications, not just the user-installed.

This led to the application to be an essential app  on many lists and many expert reviews users in the Android ecosystem. In Google Play has an average of 4.7 out of 5: a fact that confirms these views.

But this presented a  problem :  it was necessary to be root to use it. And not everyone feels how rooteando your device.

The question is: why talk again about this app? Why have spoken in the past? The answer is simple: The application has been updated and is no longer necessary to rooteado our device !But we must mention that there will be exactly the same if we are root or if you are not:  automatic sleep service is only available in the case of rooteado the device (due to lack of permissions), leaving manual hibernation when we are not root.

This can check the  changelog of Google Play:


v2.0 (Release)

Greenify now works on devices not rooteados! Try the operation mode rooteado not (no automatic sleep due to privilege restrictions).

The shortcut ‘Hibernate all’ can now also be created from the main menu Greenify.

Considerably improved stability auto hibernation service, especially in Android 4.4 +.


If you have not you had was encouraged to try this application, you may not have a rooteado device, now is the time to download and test. Which ye have tested, you notice? improvement in battery consumption?
