I have a question that is bothering me from some months if not years (same issue on nougat {i skipped oreo}) . Why when you activate automatic high brightness mode in the app it's working perfectly, but then, after some minutes it stop working? If you reopen fk app it starts to work again.
I tried to systemize the fk app in the priv folder , and it's also in the battery optimization exclusions but the result is the same

It is automatic outdoor mode switching it off. Used to be able to set it to always outdoor mode in AICP, but that setting has not come to pie yet. Check with your ROM developer for that.

It seems to work with the app automatic high brightness mode by flar2 . This app has a notification that it's always showed , and I think this is the reason the function still works even after many hours .

Hello all,
Just a silly que..
So N6 should be rooted for installation on Francokernel.
Now after I flash the kernel, & battery life is extended...
Can I unroot my phone? Or Do I need to keep the root?


Noob question.:eek: but want to try , so just confirming ?

Actually, I believe you can run the kernel workout root. Even flash it from twrp without root. But you'll be unable to change any kernel setting. And then what's the point? It's the settings that make FrancoKernel fun.

Better to root with Magisk and then use Magisk hide to hide root from those apps that care. Generally, Magisk makes _more_ apps run than unrooted with anything custom flashed.

Via twrp file manager, delete the app. Or if it doesn't come pre-rooted, dirty flash Pixeldust and uninstall FKM. Reflash root and kernel, reinstall FKM.

Hi all!
I have a question, quoting from the first post of the thread.
"Builds (starting with r65 up to r75) are Android 7.1.1 Nougat March 2017 security patchset, or newer, only.
Builds starting with r76 up to r77 are for Android Oreo and Pie custom roms."
Now, I'm on 7.1.1 with october 2017 security patch. Why the francokernel app makes me flash r76 kernel? shouldn't it give me no other kernel than the r75?

Would be great if upgraded for an Android 10 kernel. Currently using the CrDroid 6.6(10.0) ROM, and everything is fine except the battery. This kernel is best for battery saving.

#76 works for 7.1.1 I noticed this was the latest for 7.1.1 despite the OP stating #75 was the last for 7.1.1
I flashed and all is perfect. I think a typo or mistake not sure but 76 is fine for 7.1.1 stock build I flashed it today and so far am very pleased. Thank you Franco!

    Hi all.

    Compatibility:
    It should work on any rom by following this logic:
    Builds (up to r19) are Android 5.0 Lollipop only.
    Builds (starting with r20) are Android 5.1 Lollipop only.
    Builds (starting with r32) are Android 6.0 Marshmallow only.
    Builds (starting with r53) are Android 7.0 Nougat only.
    Builds (starting with r60 up to r64) are Android 7.1.1 Nougat only.
    Builds (starting with r65 up to r75) are Android 7.1.1 Nougat March 2017 security patchset, or newer, only.
    Builds starting with r76 up to r77 are for Android Oreo and Pie custom roms.
    Builds starting with r78 are only for Android Pie.

    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 - 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 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.

    Change-log for r1 below.

    I haven't included UV interface for now. It's more a commodity than a necessity and, as usual, as soon as I push UV users start messing with it and **** their phones (I've done this countless times, I know how it goes). I'll push UV sometime later. Also I'm gonna see if we can get some Gamma adjustments (no promise, I haven't even looked). Let's see how this develops over time. I've put some real thought into this r1 release, no bull**** as always.

    r6 is up for grabs!

    The big difference here is that we're now using Conservative governor instead of Interactive and I would like to explain you why. With this 3.10 branch guys over Linux foundation unified the cpufreq driver a little bit, so Ondemand and Conservative share the same core code. They behave differently, but the main code path is the same. There is also a new and improvement scaling calculation which I enjoy. Then I remembered that back in the old 2.6.35 branches we had a little tweak on Conservative that made it aware of micro idle accounting, which means that it sampled the load every 10ms, making it very aware of any change on the system that required fast response (this is what Ondemand does), but still maintaining it's "conservative" style. It changes very fast so there's a perception that all possible lag is absolutely gone without relying on extreme touchboost technics or overusage of extra CPU cores (like mpdecision does). But at the same time it scales down as fast as it goes up, so you'll be seeing an even usage of all steps as well. Interactive as we all know it's a very customizable governor, lots of options, but its a bit weird when deciding what freqs to use (I still like it very much).

    I think you'll enjoy this experience immensely. Zephik's been using this for the past days, and he got some amazing results. I've been impressed myself.

    Hope you like the change.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way and has noticed this. Very well put.

    On a side note Ive purchased fku app awhile back to support the dev. But no longer use it because of the problems I've seen with it and I personally get better results with a diff app. No biggie. But I'm not about to point out those issues because I know how hard dev works on this and I appreciate every second of it

    Alright so what problems are you having with my app? I can't figure them out if I'm not having issues, so please let me know and I'll do my best, as usual, to improve the experience.

    Well said, and in addition: chastising those who support you and made you who you are is not good form. I think the term is "biting the hand that feeds you".

    I remember when you just got started. You were humble and kind. Don't let your ego get the best of you. You wouldn't be here right now if it wasn't for us.

    I mean this in all due respect. Sometimes people need a wake up call. I flashed lean kernel not because I was upset with your kernel, I did it because I was getting sick of the way you talk to people. I'm sure I'm not alone.

    Peace.

    Ah comon cut the crap. I've always been like this, I write what I think, I don't hold back. I'm not biting any hands for ****s sake. Isn't the Kernel work that I do 100% for free? Don't you flash it for free? Don't I give you support for free? Sure we can talk about the app. Haven't I issued more than 200 updates since December 2012 (app release) 100% for free? Have I asked for anything more in return? Don't I give hourly support to all my users? I just frickin' rebuilt the app from scratch for 5 months. I slept through Christmas because I spent the week before having 1h sleep per-day to finish the app on time for Christmas so that users could enjoy it? Comon dude! Just because I'm direct and say what goes to my mind I'm already "biting on users hands" ?
    What I just wrote is a perfect example of writing what goes through my mind. From dealing with me this phrase says it all: "What you see is what you get".
    I'm sure LeanKernel will be awesome as well, Imoseyon's a great guy and knows his ****. Good luck!

    Pushed r17 which fixes the cpu0 bug **** and fixes a performance regression on sequential read speed.
