Concept

Flash and be happy out of the box!
The kernel provides 4 Spectrum profiles and 3 Franco Kernel Manager profiles for most usecases. Balanced / Battery / Performance (default) / Gaming. For choosing another profile as Balanced please install Spectrum from the Google PlayStore.
If you want to modify the profiles just run a kernelmanager like EX Kernelmanager and change what you want.

The Android 10 version comes with autoinstalling Magisk module and autoinstalling config app made by Senior member xXx and Senior member tanisch2k09!
To preconfigure the kernel uses a config file made by well known Senior member @xXx
Many thx to both for this oustanding contribution to this project!!!
The Android 10 version supports Magisk 20.3 or higher only!

These are the tunables you could modify:

Defaults in [ ]
Profiles battery, balanced, [performance], gaming
SELinux [permissive] / enforced
CPU minimum frequency little 300, 403, 518, 614, [691], 787, 883, 1075
CPU minimum frequency big [710], 825, 940, 1056, 1171
CPU minimum frequency prime [844], 960, 1075, 1190
GPU minimum frequency 200, [305], 400
GPU Input boost off 305, [400], 441
GPU maximum frequency up to 900 MHz (comes with 600 MHz frequency set!)
etc.
!!! WARNING !!! 700, 800and 900 MHz are GPU OC frequencies and NOT stable on all devices!

The SmurfKernel configuration file is placed in /sdcard/SmurfKernel: If you want to use the kernel with it's default configuration just flash it!!! For custom changes please edit the SmurfKernelConfigurationEditor by @tanish2k09. The settings are applied saving the config. Your actual configuration is written to smurf.kernel.bootlog.

It's recommended to use my kernel paired with

Sad... Not using TWRP at this stage. Prefer falsh by magisk and use local update of the OOS.
A kernel is not a Magisk module. Well coming from stock Magisk preserve can fail, because of that's an uncompressed image. That could happen with any other kernel too. After kernel flash Magisk is gone. You can flash it with exkm or fkm, and flash Magisk afterwards again with the installer. Afterwards the kernel again. That should do the job too. Updates don't need this procedure for sure.

My mistake. Flashing with franco kernel manager or EXKM., not magisk. But you have the anykernel script inside your file so why it's not possible to flash with these tools? And why install magisk again afterwards and the kernel for a second time?

All other kernels flashed once with franco and running without issues also without flashing magisk again afterwards?

Well i've seen Magisk preserve fail many times coming from stock and especially after installing OTA. I recommend to do it this way to avoid further support actions. If you're an advanced user you can deal with it i guess. And now just flash it.
That's a modified script, just view it. It needs to install the Magisk module for the kernel etc.

So flash your kernel with franco... Reboot... Install magisk to both slots.... Reboot... Install your kernel again with franco... Reboot and be happy?

new phone. flashed kernel, magisk, kernel via TWRP as always with OP phones. about 10 minutes after boot, phone is burning hands. Tried reboot, phone won't boot now. Any amount of button pushing does nothing, phone is ded. Guess its true, flash at own risk. hopefully can get another new phone.

Absolutely impossible man, phone works cold and nice here and did the same on many test phones over a bunch of weeks. Mandatory is for sure Magisk works, because of needed brain service shutdown! But well even that not working would let it run hot, but for sure not kill your device.

Hold all three buttons and select recovery from fastboot menu. Flash Magisk and kernel again from TWRP.

Testing the kernel for weeks now, never had that issue, everything is running super fluid and cool.

How do I find the FKM (Franco) profiles, and how to enable them?

Flashed directly through FKM coming from another kernel. no issues except not seeing any profiles.
