Hi all.

Compatibility:
Builds starting with r1 up to r7 are compatible with stock Android Oreo 8.0.0.
Builds starting with r2 are compatible with Android Oreo 8.1.0 custom roms.
Builds starting with r8 are compatible with stock Android Oreo 8.1.0.

Download:
https://francokernel.app

Installation:
Not rooted or using another custom Kernel
1 - Dirty flash your rom
2 - Go through the whole recovery installation procedure
3 - Flash Magisk
4 - Flash the zip in your recovery
Rooted and upgrading FK
1 - Flash the zip in your recovery
or
Auto-flash from Kernel Manager for Franco Kernel -> it's magical

Features:
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

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.

Cheers!

Stock rom:
This Kernel doesn't touch WiFi in any shape or form, it uses the built-in WiFi module that's present on stock rom. If you're using a custom Kernel that messes with the WiFi stack (eg. injecting a custom WiFi module) you must dirty flash your rom first to ensure WiFi will work properly. You've been warned.

1. Dirty flashed fastboot ROM.
2. Boot to TWRP | Install TWRP zip.
3. Install Magisk.
4. Install Kernel

Works great! Does the Mac Address really change when one switches Kernels? I noticed it here and the last Kernel I flashed.

It shouldn't, mac adress is hw specific, but I don't really know if there's an address randomization - not really my area of expertise, I might be 100% wrong.

That's odd. I think you may be correct. It reverted back to my original mac address from before I flashed the previous kernel I was using. I saw it from an old entry in my router's config page. :)

By the way. Did you do something to make the device boot faster or am I just experiencing a placebo effect of sorts?
