Thumbs up [FIXED] Nexus 4 Battery drain and heating

My nexus 4 heats up very much when using 3G data or while charging. It also drains battery very quickly while using 3g data or even when the phone is idle. Here's how I fixed it. [ YOU MUST BE ROOTED IN ORDER TO DO THIS]

WORKS ONLY WITH ANDROID 4.4.2

1.You need to flash franco.kernel for nexus 4.


2. Calibrate your battery. There are tons of apps to do this which are available on google play store.

3. Enjoy your Nexus 4.

Thank me if it helped or Thank me even if this not helped. Thank me if you read it xD

1. Why? There are many great kernels avaible for the Nexus 4 , why does it have to be franco?

2.You should read some more about how batteries in modern smartphones work , its just a placebo effect , "calibrating" doesent help at all , and actually running your battery low on purpose can hurt it.

3.The nexus 4 has a fairly small battery and it gets hot because of its design, but i can get 4-5 hrs OST and it isnt that hot anyways .

I see a thread closure in your future.

Ha don't be so hard on him there was also an time that we were in that beginner phase, let him learn -±- and it might help other people, who would ask the same. But it doesnt need to be specifically franco but he can mention to look for an custom kernel and that he prefers franco kernel, i prefer now hot weather and beach but also turn off location in 4.4.2 cause location is annoying (thats how the NSA is tracking every terrorist) but i am giving one thanks to him for amusement😳 so if you are feeling now like😨 well LG Life's Good you know?
I need to get back to some asian keyboard again i gues more smilts oleschool.

Simply cuz ur tutorial is misleading... For sure franco's kernel may be better than stock so u may get better battery and less heat "issues", but that can be achieved with any custom kernel when correctly tuned.
