franco.Kernel features:

* I have 1 version for ICS(4.0.3/4.0.4) and one version for JB(4.1/4.1.1/4.1.2). If you ask if it works on older roms I will kick your ass
* Overclockable by tons of frequencies
* Custom Voltage Control from Ezekeel
* Sound Control from Ezekeel/Greg White
* OMAP Gamma interface
* Trinity's Contrast control
* Wifi_PM toggle
* Fsync toggle
* Thermal Throttle toggle
* Debug **** removed
* BFQ v5 IO scheduler by default
* Ramdisk tweaks
* Performance/battery carefully picked tweaks
* Lots more **** - flash and see for yourself

Changelog:
Milestone 6:
* Merged all patches related to 4.1.2
* Fixed the famous data drops by tricking Smartreflex to not overly calibrate certain hardware parts
* Added custom changes to lowmemorykiller driver to force the device to have a certain amount of free RAM to sustain smoothness over the time
* Made the launcher unkillable by the lowmemorykiller driver to prevent redraws or widget crapping itselfs
* Added a new governor called dyninteractive - this is similar to interactive in 99% but instead this new governor dynamically adapts its own tunables and settings depending on the system load.
* Increased Interactive governor kernel priority thread for the frequency change task - more smoothness
* Added a new tuneable for Interactive governor called input_boost_freq. Path is here: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/interactive/input_boost_freq
* Added all TCP Congestion algorithms presents in the kernel. To check all algorithms run this command on the Terminal/ADB Shell: sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_available_congestion_control
To change the algorithm: sysctl -w net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control=NAME_OF_THE_ALGORI THM
* BFQ IO scheduler updated from v4 to v5
* Added other smaller but still relevant changes available on my github repository

F.A.Q:
1. My device rebooted or crashed, how can I help?
A: Get me /proc/last_kmsg or logcat.
2. Battery sucks, my device is not entering deep sleep. FIX PLOX!
A: Fix it yourself, it's an app waking your device up not the kernel's problem
3. Signal is dropping since I flashed the kernel, amg u sucks!
A: The kernel has nothing to do with gsm/cmda signal. Make sure you have the latest radios
4. Do I need to wipe anything when flashing this kernel?
A: No.
5. Does this kernel has X or Y mod?
A: Learn to read, everything you need to know is in the features list, changelog or public repo.
6. GTA3, FIFA2012 or any game of the type isn't opening?
A: Flash this on CWM http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ostcount=20011

I'll give it a whirl and report back with my findings. I have been reading some reviews on your kernels for the other phones and they have been all positive, looking forward to some great battery life.

Use the default. No, don't use profiles, they do more harm than good.

I got 2% drain for 10 hours last night! Pretty darn good if you ask me. I'm also running juice defender ultimate on aggressive setting to help out more. So far so good with this kernel thanks!

Can I flash using CWM? I didn't see that anywhere. Must I wipe data or cache as well? I would love to test it out. Im looking for any battery life improvement I can get.

And did I read this only works with a 4.0.3 ROM?

I opened and closed the camera app and used CPU spy and the majority of the time it spent was deep sleep. Then I rebooted this morning and didn't open and close the camera app. And I got the same results, doesn't look like that bug is present on my phone at least. So far I am getting good battery life using this kernel and juice defender.

I'd like to see some evidence to back up this claim. Granted that now the newer governors give you a decent enough screen-off profile built in that THAT profile may not be so much worthwhile, but for things like overheating profiles are damn sure worth the "good".
