Hello. I'd like to install Faux123 kernel in my moto G but I don't have clear how I should install it . I have found the app on the play store Faux123 Kernel Enhancement Pro. Should I have to install it to get work it properly?

You dont need the app to use the kernel, but you need to have an unlocked bootloader, a custom recovery (maybe also a rooted phone).

Before installing faux kernel do a nandroid backup in recovery. If you're unsatisfied with faux kernel then restore your backup.

do you loose data when installing a custom kernel? what are the advantages of this kernel? I am enjoying the stock rom and want to stick with it, but don't know what I'm missing if I switch the kernel to Faux123. Already UL and rooted

No, you will not loose your data when flashing a new kernel.

Long story short, the advantages are a much more effecient and optimised kernel that will allow for better performance, battery life or a balance between the two depending on what your after and how you setup the kernel... Read, read and when you think you've read enough, read somemore!

Thank you for your reply,
I did read up on this kernel but the info I found wasn't for this device and I didn't know there was anything specific to the Moto G.
