Made a few additions and improvements to the script:
- Set "interactive" as the scaling governor for all cores
- Improved responsiveness
- Added more scheduler and virtual memory tweaks from FK
- A file named fkt.log will be created in the internal storage if the script was executed successfully.

Follow the details and steps provided in the previous post.
Any feedback is highly appreciated.

Edit: There was a flaw in the script. Fixed it and re-uploaded. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I would like to try this mod but i don't have service.d folder in /data/adb! do i have to create it? (rom: pixel experience pie)

FKT Script Update:
- Changed some interactive governor parameters to prevent device from heating up frequently
- Disabled some kernel debugging
- Aggressive multi-core power save

I get a better SOT with the latest script (see screenshot, mileage may vary). Give it a shot.

PS: If your ROM supports init.d, you can use this as an init.d script without Magisk or Root. Instructions are provided in the attached zip.
PPS: This is not a flashable zip!

    Hi all.

    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.


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

    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

    Scroll down, choose your device & select the latest release to see the changelog.

    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.

    [KERNEL] [GPL] [N5] franco.Kernel - r14

    r33 is pushed! Thanks for all the tests during this last 5-6 weeks. Before you ask yes this build is newer than the last r33-test. Most of you that followed the changes know basically what changed, so this is a generic changelog:

    * FK does not work with CM or derivates anymore so don't flash if you're in one of those roms. Also make sure you're not undervolting too much, this new build might be a little extra nervous regarding low voltages
    * This is a huge release with more than 1 month of consecutive testing. It contains probably more than 250 new commits which include a lot of patches from Codeaurora with fixes, performance improvements and battery improvements. Subsystems like cpufreq, audio, video, display, thermal, power management etc have been improved. For a complete list of changes please visit my github repository
    * My hotplug driver has been improved as in having a complete new set of tunables for advanced users. Visit my repository for the documentation of each tunable

    I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, lots of food, kisses, hugs, and quality time.

    From my part thanks a lot for the great 2 months since the N5 was released, that, for me, is a great gift, thank you all.

    Sent from my Nexus 5 using XDA Premium 4 mobile app
    Pushed r37 with exciting features:

    * Misc patches with small fixes
    * Remove duplicated GPU frequencies
    * Add minimum backlight tunable /sys/module/parameters/lm3630_bl/min_brightness
    * Add RGB display calibration /sys/devices/platform/kcal_ctrl.0/kcal
    * Merged some memory routine optimizations from Motorola

    Cool stuff :)
