Hi all.

Compatibility:
It should work on any rom by following this logic:
Builds (starting with r65) are Android 5.0 Lollipop only.
Builds (starting with r72) are Android 5.1 Lollipop only.
Builds (starting with r76) are Android 6.0 Marshmallow only.
Builds (starting with r97) are also compatible with Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 7.1 Nougat .
Builds (starting with r114) are also compatible with Android 8.1.0 Oreo.

This does not work with "CAF" roms.

Download:
https://francokernel.app

Installation:
Flash the zip in your recovery
or
Auto-flash from Franco Kernel Updater app

Features:
1 - Legendary battery life
2 - Flash & forget
3 - Typical interfaces like display adjustments, sound control, vibration control, and all that boring stuff
4 - Idle power consumption reduced to the absolute minimum (if you have wakelocks from 3rd party apps you're obviously on your own)
5 - Support for FKUpdater's Performance Profiles
6 - 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)
7 - Seemless integration with my app FKUpdater
8 - No crap placebo patches, or "magical" optimizations
9 - Probably more, check my github for all the details - the code speaks for itself

Changelog:

Kernel Manager for Franco Kernel demo

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!

Can you confirm it says "franco.Kernel" in the About Phone?
Yes, it does. Tried to make a screenshot but somehow it didn't work.

Oh that's issue #1 then.. Just did 5 screenshots no problem on stock. booted test kernel and it just shows me the power menu.

Ahhh Franco, the king, the mighty one, the sexy little gnome.......
Glad you'll be working on the n5, mine arrives Monday. Will the app work with the n5 out of curiosity also will you be able to post the old version of the app with all the features? Or was that made redundant? I kinda went outta touch when there was 2 versions of the kernel on n4 and couldn't get either running :(

Should be fine if you flash it instead of booting it. Weird things happened on Mako as well if one booted the boot.img instead of flashing. Can you confirm this for me?

What do you mean old version of the app with all features? Those 2 Kernel versions were because stupid Google decided to derp AOSP and roms decided to go derp mode as well and either built stock JWR, or then hybrid, others went JSS... a mess.

App will go fully functional with the N5 as soon as I get the device on my hands and I get some quality time with it.
