Hi all.

It should work on any rom by following this logic:
Builds (starting with r1) are Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow only.
Builds (starting with r17) are Android 7.0 Nougat only.
Builds (starting with r28 up to r37) are Android 7.1.1 Nougat only.
Builds from r38 up to r44 are for Android 7.1.2 Nougat
Builds from r45 up to r48 are for Android 8.0.0 Oreo.
Builds from r49 are for Android 8.1.0 Oreo.


Flash the zip in your recovery
Auto-flash from Franco Kernel Updater app

1 - Legendary battery life
2 - Flash & forget
3 - Typical interfaces like display adjustments, sound control, vibration control, and all that boring stuff
4 - Bypasses the verified boot flag for Android Pay compatibility (root still breaks Android Pay but that's your own problem)
5 - Idle power consumption reduced to the absolute minimum (if you have wakelocks from 3rd party apps you're obviously on your own)
6 - Support for FKUpdater's Performance Profiles
7 - Magical support, I'm here every day, checking posts almost hourly, ready to help anytime (well, unless you fail to read the OP, which contains most info you need)
8 - Seemless integration with my app FKUpdater
9 - No crap placebo patches, or "magical" optimizations
10 - Probably more, check my github for all the details - the code speaks for itself

Scroll down, choose your device & select the latest release to see the changelog.

Disclaimer to moderators:
Slight OT is fine, but when users decide to act stupid they should be dealt with with the appropriate means - its really annoying for me when OT turns crazy. Please put the warning/ban hammer anytime any of you think there's lack of respect and/or too much unwanted OT crap - but if it doesn't meet this criteria let the OT posts alone. Thank you.

Current r1 is not yet complete, I think it only lacks sound control, but it's pretty much done.
Took me a little while to find the right balance, this little bastard lags easily, but this Kernel is pretty much a "clone" of FK for the 6P so I'm sure you'll have some fun with improved battery life.

FKUpdater will be updated tomorrow to support this Kernel and the final r1 release will also be out.
Any feedback about UI responsiveness and anything else that comes to mind, now's your chance to talk.

Two things to note though, EIS video stabilisation is enabled automatically with FK, just check your Camera app and you'll see it, and FK ships with a slightly cooler display colour temperature, and a very slight saturation boost.

I wasn't supposed to work on this device because I didn't want to shell out 450 euros for a device I wouldn't use outside Kernel/app development, but in the end I did it for you.

Enjoy it & you're ducking welcome.
