I've heard a lot of good things about both, I'm just wondering which one is the more "popular" one to say. I've been using ElementalX for a month now, and it works pretty good overclocked to 1.8Ghz.

I don't really use touchwake that much, so it's not a deal breaker. Since I hear a lot about Franco, what's so good about it?

I suggest Franco or faux123 kernel, I use faux123 at the moment and it works perfectly

They are both great kernels made by respected devs. I use ElementalX but I suggest to give them each a try and see for yourself.

I tried Franco and thought it was slower than ElementalX. Have it over clocked slightly more at 1.8Ghz, but I don't think it makes the difference. ElementalX has made me happy, so I'll keep it.

At the moment ElementalX is the best kernel and I can recommend using it because of it's great stability, performance and variety of customisations.

Does anyone know if there are known issues that are causing bootloops? I have a 2013 N7 running on CM 10.2 and I flashed both Glitch and ElementalX kernels and both gave me bootloops

You want to make sure you are using the proper kernel. The most recent ones are for 4.4.2 but you're running 4.3 JB. Other than that, make sure your ROM is AOSP based and it should work. This is not withstanding some CM 11 builds.

Thanks for the answer. I also tried Franco kernel and I was able to get the lock screen but all the colors seemed to be negative. Perhaps is a GPU issue. I get a totally cyan screen when the CM Boot animation appears. Also with Franco kernel it said: com.phone.android has stopped, I wasn't able to get out of the lock screen. Ill try with another ROM like AOKP, Carbon, Omni or PA

Are both of these kernels compactor with CM11.

I used to use Franco kernel exclusively on my N4, but the CM team changed something (related to colour?) that made it incompatible.

Also, do they both support usb-otg so I can mount my USB stick?
