Love Franco Kernel. So clean, smooth, and "basic".
Not meant as an insult, meant as a compliment.
Thanks.
Love the material design of the app.

Thanks for the quick response. Where can I find information on how to go from system to systemless root, can't seem to find it on XDA (or i'm completely missing something).

This is the best development (pun intended) of the day! Thanks Franco!

You're also ****ing welcome :good:

Franco's here! Been wondering when your kernel would show up. Downloading now :)

Gonna try it out now! When FKU gets support for the 6P, will that include PAM? :fingers-crossed:

I need to fix Per-App Modes, thanks to 5.1.1 which killed the standard functionality. And yes, I'll also add Performance Profiles, I wanted to gather some community feedback before I built them.

Thanks again! :) Btw been using both your naptime and servicely app and love them both. About to flash this kernel and be set.

Servicely needs a fix because Android 5.1.1 killed half of it's functionality (but yeah you can still disable services). :)

Looking good so far. Did notice that the big cores weren't utilized for apk install though, and that the big cores are getting offlined while browsing under light load -- I don't think stock offlined them except for temperature, but who knows, maybe I'm hitting that just a little.

Also hoping for sioplus eventually.

Been a franco fan since Galaxy Nexus, then to N4 and OPO, good to see you here man.

I also noticed that the big cores are offline a lot.

Color control available ??/

Yes it is available :)

The whole online/offline is handled by Perfd, it's stock behaviour. What I did change was reducing the load average to the absolute minimum, so cores don't have outstanding tasks to complete, so they can sleep, thus reducing power usage. Maybe the scheduler heuristics are determining there's no work to be migrated to the big cores, so they stay off. I don't know about apk installs, that's all handled by the framework and the cores will go online if there's demand and tasks to migrate to them. I also merged a couple patches from CAF which had newer code base for the scheduler with fixes etc, so that might be playing along with it. I'm still learning about this architecture (big.Little) so I don't have much to add besides the basic.

The high perf cluster uses ~4x more power than the low power cluster (comparing equal frequencies), so leaving them offline as much as possible is exactly what we want. Geekbench has exactly the same score as stock, so they are working as intended for high demanding tasks.

sioplus is irrelevant and not upstreamed. Unless there's empirical evidence of it's benefits against CFQ (which has been updated from upstream to behave properly for SSD-like storage) that's not going to change.

Franco-been a user of yours for years... Literally. Good to see you here. Thanks.

Any chance of swipe2wake? It's great while in the car dock...

Heya! I'm sorry to disappoint, but I don't merge those features by principle. I've outlasted many Nexuses, I've seen a lot. Patches like that (not questioning the dev's ability to produce quality code) scream way more issues than they solve, and I cannot have that chance. I hope you understand and I won't be sad if you need to use another Kernel with support for those features :)

Because for 2.52 to work it needs a different sepolicy bin, and I can't use the old 6.0 binary from CF's initial Nexuses pre-rooted boot.img. And because system-less SuperSu is the future and it will let you flash OTAs on your device without wiping or extra cleaning.



Yes.
What if the Rom is prerooted with 2.52 like chroma?

    Hi all.

    Compatibility:
    It should work on any rom by following this logic:
    Builds from r1 to r23 are Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow only (up until June's security patches)
    Builds from r24 are for Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow only from July's security patch up to the r28.
    Builds from r29 are for Android 7.0 Nougat.
    Builds from r40 up to r49 are for Android 7.1.1 Nougat only.
    Builds from r50 up to r55 are for Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
    Builds from r56 up to r64 are for Android 8.0.0 Oreo.
    Builds from r65 are for Android 8.1.0 Oreo.

    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 crap placebo patches, or "magical" optimizations
    10 - Probably more, check my github for all the details - the code speaks for itself

    Kernel Manager for Franco Kernel

    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!

    Now that Oreo is out I'll be starting FK from scratch (as I always do).

    Expect at least 24-48 hours for a new build.

    FKUpdater users from previous phones: support for this device will be added as soon as realistically possible.

    My main focus on r1 release was to improve battery life as much as possible. I'm very happy with it.

    If you want a detailed change-log check my git.

    I'm sure you're going to love it.

    A little weekend treat: http://kernels.franco-lnx.net/Nexus6P/6.0/anyKernel/fk-r8-anykernel2.zip
    You can flash that on top of any rom and it'll work :) I strongly suggest that, if you're using a custom rom, you "dirty flash" your rom package so that you get back the default boot.img and then flash this zip on top of it. If you're on stock I wouldn't worry, but if you want a pristine installation flash stock boot.img from the nexus images and then flash this zip.

    Anyway, FKUpdater will be out sometime Monday/Tuesday supporting auto-flash of this new flashing method, so I'll hold off an official release of r8 until then, but you can go ahead and play with it, has lots of small changes (I won't bother you with the details). Enjoy and let me know how it works for you.
