I don't know what your guys have been doing to the kernel but my performance increased and my battery life too in the last 7/8 updates.
I used to have this ROM, first with Trinity and then with Matrix, and my screen on was around 2 hours sometimes less but now it's always between 3 to 4 hours and that's with heavy use including data connection...
One thing that this kernel doesn't let me do is under-voltage. As soon as i set it one level down it will reboot instantly and i known that my phone can go down even more by testing with other Kernels.
Anyway, and changing a little bit the subject, i really down care what name they give to the project or the ROM as long as we don't lose the great development that this guy is doing with the ROM. He's great and he knows what we like to see in a ROM and Xylon is a great example of it.
Since i both my N4 i've tried allot of ROM but i kept coming back to Xylon because of it's performance and great features... (only missing halo know
OP keep in mind that allot of people (like me) don't write here in this thread but we are all following your work...
