Quanta Tweaks

All your tweaks are now regrouped into the app I've developped. No more hassle in tweaking 10 files/5 different apps togheter. It also has a franco.Kernel shortcut so your tweaking experience won't be stopped when trying to reach it.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...n.quantatweaks

It includes various tools and a beautiful user interface to enhance your experience even further!

Request for new features

Listen, I want to keep this kernel as minimalistic as possible. For this reason, I won't add any GPU OC, CPU OC, S2W,S2S, etc... DON'T EVEN BOTHER TO ASK!!

Good to see this new thread. I hope you have merged updates from the new test 212 which fixes idle battery drain for many.

Tested on latest BETA3 of ParanoidAndroid and is working good.
Is there a possiblity to see mods concerning brightness? Minimum stock brightness is too high for me, but I love Franco kernel and I don't want to change to (for example) AK Kernel that support lower brightness levels.

I ported the experimental brightness driver from stratosk which supports even lower minimum brightness. You can use the stratosk app to enable/disable it.
