Those profiles were made by the community, I simply uploaded them to the app to be prebuilt. I accept profiles from any of you if you want.
Gotcha, I just didn't see the option to tweak color profiles with fku on the N5X. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.

I don't game much at all so I can't give a good timeframe myself. I don't see any major performance issues other than an occasional stutter where I feel like there shouldn't be. My wife, on the other hand, occasionally sees performance issues due to throttling after playing her "tapping" games or snapchatting, as others have mentioned. The Anandtech 5x review gives a fairly detailed assessment of the thermal behavior and states the big cores throttle to 633Mhz after 2 min and then shut off completely after 12. I'd say that probably lines up with some of the behavior my wife is seeing.

It's interesting to me that you don't see this aggressive throttling on other 808 based devices like the G4 or moto x pure. This gives me hope that it can be fixed on the 5X.

To be honest this smells like typical LG bull****. I'll see what I can do.

Well, the "fix" is easy. cpu4 and cpu5 go offline when the battery temp reaches ~31ºC. If we disable core_control on the thermal driver, they won't go offline, ever, but they'll stay throttled to their lowest cpu frequency. Then the little cluster won't start throttling until the sensor reports 70ºC on the cpus (not battery), and they basically stay at 960MHz indefinitely if the CPU temp stays hovering around ~65ºC. The device is a bit warm to touch, but not that much. I can almost safely assume we can disable core_control without any damage prevent major performance hit.

I'm so impressed with how smooth the scrolling is. On tapatalk i can't get it to microstutter as hard as i try. Awesome release for the 1ST OFFICIAL franco.Kernel. The app seems to be running great for the 15 minutes I've had 14.0.2 installed but again I'm new to this app & kernel but looks like it's a winner. Thanks again for purchasing the N5X and bringing your talents to all of us.

r1 officially out. I didn't have time to add sound control, but will do it for r2 - I'd rather get this out instead of delaying since I'm pretty happy with it. Flash this final r1 if you were using the WIP version.
Flashing supersu systemless 2.66 after the official r1 leads to an error. Flashed on top of the wip build. Downloaded it twice, same thing happened.

Edit: tried flashing the boot.img instead of the zip. Then supersu 2.66. Successfully flashed but stuck forever at Google logo. :confused:

Going back to wip for now

I think I know the problem. SuperSU creates a backup before patching the kernel. I think you need to delete the backup first and then flash Franco, then SuperSU again.

The backup is located at /data/stock_boot<long string>.img.gz

Works for me.

P. S. Does that mean that we have to do this every time new Franco kernel comes out?

I see you've disabled ZRAM.

What more is done to minimise lag? Will disabling ZRAM make te device perform more consistently over a period of time? That's my main gripe with this device, performance after a while.

I'll look forward to seeing how the kernel performs in a week. Things are smooth as of now. Didn't like the colour tweaks though, set those back to default.
