Probably fixed in the next FKUpdater's release, today.

Thank you very much!!!

I don't know where you checked that, but cores on this arch are synced to each other, either they're all boosted, or they aren't. On stock Kernel the 4 little cores go to 1248MHz for 1,5s, and the big cores to 864MHz for sometime around 0,5 to 1s. Here in FK I do things a little bit differently. Each frequency step wastes X power when used. The Big cluster uses around ~4x more power than the little cluster while comparing the same freq on both. So what I did was, if the big cluster has 0 tasks running, we don't boost it, so we save a LOT of power that way (there's no point in boosting the big cluster every time you touch the display if there's nothing to boost). Because of those savings we can boost the little cluster to its max frequency and still be way below the power usage of the big cluster input_boost_freq (764MHz I think). Even more, I boost it for 750ms while stock boosts for 1500ms.

This was thought out, I didn't pull this out of my arse

Back on topic, looking forward to try your newest kernel!

It's not over yet

Probably a bug on the app, should be fixed on 14.0.2 going out today.

her biggest issue is mostly performance related. In my time figuring out her beefs I"ve noticed the two big cores going offline frequently due to CPU temp. I've adjusted her thermal settings which help some but struggling to get her to enjoy the phone.

& OMG if she uses snapchat, it's all over with. CPU temp jumps like 10deg F & offlines big cores quickly. I really don't know if it's bad hardware & we need to RMA or if snapchat really just sucks that bad (both perhaps)

she makes comments all the time about "i can't believe google decided to release this phone"

offered to get her a 6p but she loves the size of the 5x lol

kept tellin her, "wait to see if Franco ends up with the 5x & can work his magic"

thanks again

Well, I've done a lot to make sure cpus are not doing more work than they need to, hopefully that'll help her case. Let me know what happens afterwards, I'm very curious.

I'll steal her phone tonight & get it setup, will report feedback.

Are u on the latest version of snapchat? Early on, snapchat was basically unusable for me bc for whatever reason it wasn't optimized for Marshmallow but lately the recent app updates have mostly fixed snapchat for me. And yes thermal throttling seems to be an issue with this phone but I think it can be fixed or at least improved (maybe?)

And he did it again! I cannot express my thanks for not forgetting the N5X community like many other devs do with the N6P in the picture. I have already donated by buying your app and I will probably do again when I have the money to! I've always trusted your work and I will do it once again.

Big kudos to you.

EDIT: Just to clarify: FK is not compatible with the stable, system-installed SuperSU versions? Only the 2.60+ (system-less) versions?

Nice implementation. I did not know that each core is in sync so that is a little surprise to me and that's why I asked. So far your implementation is the best I have found.

Thank you for your work

yeah, always latest. I agree it was unusable at the beginning, she was on the beta program but i opted her out of that to see if any improvements from "stable" release.. i'd say it helped a bit but still does crazy things to CPU temp & ends up throttling/offlining cores. I know they update that app all the time but never really say what's changed or fixed (it's a terrible app imo)

stupid part is she never used snapchat ONCE until she got this phone & now she can't live without it.. i keep threatening to remove snapchat from her phone but in reality that shouldn't be the "fix" lol

Haha well there is a chance it could be hardware related, maybe u just got a bad 5x. So if you can have Google send a replacement, maybe you could get better luck. So far my 5x has performed well. Not blazing fast or anything but fast enough for me.

Has anyone tried installing this with CM13 yet? I'm getting stuck at the boot animation. I wonder if it's because I was previously on Elemental X kernel? My process was to flash the image via fastboot, boot to recovery, install SuperSU 2.65, wipe cache/dalvik, reboot.
