Can't remember if liquidsmooth is based on cm or aosp. Either way the kernel your trying to flash will be a caf kernel on a aosp rom or the other way round.
For cm based roms flash a caf kernel.
For aosp based roms flash a stock or aosp kernel.

Just checked for you and with liquidsmooth you need to flash a none caf kernel.
So if the kernel has the word caf on the opening page , don't flash it.
Franco kernel has both caf and none caf , search for the latter.

Slight correction.. I'm using liquidsmooth.. It requires cm caf kernel. I'm using ak kernel from original dev section and the battery is awesome. Check it out.
