What if the Rom is prerooted with 2.52 like chroma?

I already answered this in the ROM thread, to simply transition over you need to do the following (not sure if this is applicable to other custom ROMs or stock factory rom, so I'm only speaking on behalf of my ROM).

- Flash Franco Kernel r1 in recovery
- Flash unSU.zip
(It doesn't matter if you flash unSU or Franco Kernel first, as long as you flash these two before flashing SuperSU 2.61)
- Flash SuperSU 2.61

... and then you'll be on SuperSU 2.61, you'll have to give root access to your applications again and it may take several minutes before SuperSU prompts you to grant or deny root access but it'll eventually show up.

    Hi all.

    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.


    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 - 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

    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.

    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.
