Hi Franco, I did the 8.1 (June 5) ota update. Things were working ok, although lag was noticeably worse from 8.0.

I flashed the r7 kernel via the app. Things seemed ok then I noticed WiFi was off, and could not be turned on. The mac address was 2:0:0:...

Another use posted an almost identical issue, citing the same mac address observation. I reinstalled from stock image and I'm at 8.0 for now, the fresh image is not receiving notice for the June 5 update.
I'd suggest caution with flashing r7 kernel on the 8.1 update. If anyone has upgraded with no issues, or can confirm the same issue, please share.

I confirm FK doesn't work on stock 8.1 (stable), though it works with stock 8.1 beta (jun security patch). Void works on stock 8.1 (stable), but it's not that effective. So are Mint, Moun and Meta (all of them are based on Void). So, for now, it's best to stick to stock kernel until @flex1911 & @franciscofranco optimize their kernels for 8.1 (stock).

Was updater app updated recently? Now I'm getting a message that my phone is supported but there is no kernel for my andorid version. I'm on 8.0 stock, everything seems to work fine only that message pops up. :)

    Hi all.

    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.


    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
    Auto-flash from Kernel Manager for Franco Kernel -> it's magical

    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.

    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.
    New release!
    Pushed r12 with the latest CAF code drop and! Auto-flash with my app here http://get.franciscofranco.xyz or get the zip from the OP.
    For r13 I'll add support for treble since things are a bit more mature now.

    Thanks ya'll, have a great weekend!
    Pushed r6 - auto-flash with my app http://get.franciscofranco.xyz
    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
