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?

If I'm not mistaken, I believe you are correct looking at this commit. I'm assuming it works similarly to Windows 10 fast startup. :)

I don't recall having done anything for faster boot.

Makes sense. I wonder how one can force a hard restart?

Placebo effect it is. Well, I did a complete uninstall and reinstall of Magisk as well so that may have helped. Thanks for the Kernel!

Sir @franciscofranco I had a bootloop upon flashing your kernel. Here are my steps:

1. Dirty flash fastboot rom using V9.5.9.0.ODHMIFA (Android O) from http://en.miui.com/download-333.html via MiFlash (save user data).
2. Boot to bootloader, fastboot oem unlock
3. Boot latest twrp recovery, fastboot boot recovery-3.2.1-2-oreo.img
4. Switch to system_b, then boot again to recovery by all means.
5. Flash franco Kernel.
6. Flash latest Magisk beta, 16.3.

Am I doing it wrong? Thanks sir.

You don't need to switch to system_b... also flash Magisk before flashing FK.

Goodnight @franciscofranco.

I have not seen in the first and second post that the kernel contains to wake up the screen with double tap.

It contains it?
If not, will it be implemented?

Thank you very much for the work you do.

so if dirty flash with twrp can not?

As long as the dirty flash involves flashing boot, system and modem, it should be okay.

Great work! How to flash this kernel if on any other custom kernel??

I would flash it like so:

1. Dirty flash current fastboot ROM through MiFlash, fastboot or TWRP.
2. Boot to TWRP > Install TWRP Zip > Reboot to recovery.
3. Flash Magisk > Flash Franco Kernel > Reboot

1. Why use a custom kernel if you won't root it to set tweaks/changes to the kernel itself? What's the point?
2. Why use a custom ROM if you won't root it? Stick to Stock ROM if you don't want root..
First of all thank you The Great Franco for supporting MIA1.

Bro for stock kernel it dpes support double tap to wake . You can find the commit and source of implementation here it will be great if you can spare some time for this implementation

Link below of stock kernel having double tap to wake implement and working well..

That's not the Stock Mi A1 kernel. That's a custom kernel called MetaPhoenix.

(If) Most probably a noob question ! :) ( Sorry initially :) )
.
I was wondering : We could flash twrp without root , likewise , if kernel could be flashed without root ( supposing we wont root our phone but still have your kernel in our stock rom ! )
.
Or is it that after kernel is flashed , the phone is rooted itself !!:confused: ( Its because , I am on stock rom ,and haven't faced such annoying bugs as other people mention , however not much satisfied with the battery backup though , Also , I was thinking of not rooting the phone until android P :) )

    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.

    New update for stock Android 8.1!

    1. Completely rebased on top of the new 8.1 Kernel sources
    2. For stock rom
    3. Upstreamed to 3.18.119
    4. Magisk is maintained when this is flashed
    5. Magical as always

    While I've been "away" due to getting married, honeymoon, settling in, waiting for the updated sources to be available, my app has been hugely updated with new features!

    You can easily auto-flash this new update with my app http://get.franciscofranco.xyz or grabbing the zip from the OP.

    I'll be evaluating what needs to be done for custom roms and release an update in the next couple days.

    Thanks ya'll, have a great weekend!

    1. In case a custom rom/script tries to apply a non-existent governor make sure it doesn't stay with Performance governor
    2. Update to 3.18.106
