Since that update my Wi-Fi stopped working twice. I know the kernel shouldn't be responsible for that, but it was the only change on the system for weeks...

I'm in the exact same situation with multiple wifi disconnects today and yesterday.

I didn't change anything else recently than the kernel, so I can't think of another reason..but I always read in this thread that the kernel doesn't change any wifi settings.

Edit: I'll reflash 43 and check if that changes anything. Atm I can't even connect to WiFi without restarting my phone.
Been there, the problem in my case was that the FKU app flashed the CAF version and I have a OOS based Rom. Switching to the correct version brought back my wifi.

Just my five cents

That must be what happened for us as well (I'm on stock OOS). Flashing kernel 43 fixed my issues, so I've now manually downloaded and flashed kernel 44 from the source mentioned in the OP.

I'll edit this later today to report if I've really got the right version now :p Strange that the FKU app downloaded the wrong version.

Edit: Got the problem again, so probably I'm still on the wrong kernel 44. What is the right link for it then? I went for the 8.0 OOS kernel versions.

That's really weird, if you are running official OOS the right link should be the one in the OP that puts "OOS Android 8.0", IDK if it matters but are you running an OB or CB version of OOS? In my case I'm on ExperienceOS and after flashing the correct r44 everything is fine.

How did you find out? Where can I check the correct version of r44?

How I found out? Had the same issue in the past with other devices and Roms. Now the correct version for you depends on what Rom you are using. If you're on a custom LOS based Rom use the CAF version. If you have a OOS based Rom (custom or stock) you should use the Android 8.0 OOS version of the kernel.

It is all in the OP

I'm on actual stock OOS from OnePlus, so normal 5.0.6. I'm also very sure I got it from the right link and flashed that zip instead of the backup r44 version that was already in the kernel backups folder. (since this version has anykernel in the name when you download it yourself) I thought maybe the OOS 8.0.0 r44 is switched with another version, but if you're using another version of OOS and you don't have any issues with r44 that shouldn't be it.

It's very strange, @franciscofranco do you have any idea what might be the problem?

I'm fine with staying on r43 for now (which has stayed connected to my Wi-Fi the whole day so far again), but it would be a shame if I can't use any upcoming version after it

I'm on stock OOS and the update came through the FK app.
I have to restart the phone once a day to get Wi-Fi back.

If you updated from the app it is much like that it installed the CAF version or at least that happened in my case. Try to flash in twrp the OOS version and see if it solves the problem.

What do you mean by "CAF"?

I rolled back to r43 and will test for 2 days if the kernel is the problem. I downloaded the r44 from the first post and will install that one on saturday if r43 behaves as it should.

The CAF version is s the one designed for Lineage OS and other custom Roms. If your Rom is OOS a CAF kernel can cause problems such as wifi not working.

Download and flash in twrp the latest r44 in the option "OOS android 8.0" in the OP

That's really strange. With r43 everything is OK, but no matter which r44 I take (update manually or by FK app) the WiFi is missing at least once a day.

Gesendet von meinem ONEPLUS A3003 mit Tapatalk

Same here, although I'm going to try it again today. So far updating through the app got the Wi-Fi missing again in a few hours.

Edit: went for the web download as well, it seemed fine yesterday but today it couldn't find any Wi-Fi spots again until a restart. Back to r43 it is.
I've also encountered a strange phone freeze with r44, where the phone is still on (notification light keeps blazing) but won't respond to any buttons and the screen stays dark. Had to force shutdown to restart.

This actually already happened on my first r44 installation too, after being on the charger during the night. I didn't mention it before because it seemed a bit too random, but it has happened 3 times in the last few days now and always when on r44. (No clear pattern, although I think it just doesn't wake-up properly after deep sleep).
Haven't had this happen before on my phone.

    New franco.Kernel version for the OnePlus 3

    r11
    1. Merged a patch from One Plus that fixes an issue with voltages
    2. Merged some security patches
    3. Packed a lot of long-time (some are persistent) background running daemons to run solely on a specific cpuset called system-background, which limits them to run only on cpu0 and cpu1, to save power

    zip: https://kernels.franco-lnx.net/OnePlus3/7.0/anyKernel/fk-r11-anykernel2.zip

    Franco Kernel Manager & Updater is the best companion for this Kernel (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.franco.kernel)

    If you don't (yet) have my full featured app you can always just download its free counter part which lets you seamlessly and automagically update Franco Kernel on your device. It's free and my cat approves! (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.franco.kernel.free)

    I also strongly suggest you install Naptime (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.franco.doze), for free, to achieve the best battery life through out the day. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

    Hey Franco, do you build for the beta's? I'm relatively new to this device. I have tried just about every kernel on here and never get results and performance like I do when I run your awesome kernel. Thanks for the hard work. Also, what are you using as your dd now? Are you this active in all your device forums? If so, when the hell do you find time for a life? Your cat and girlfriend must hate it!

    If OP releases Kernel sources, then yes. But they usually don't. I use an iPhone 7, suits me better when out of the house since I don't wanna be thinking about Android or apps all the time (I end up doing that, but at least I'm not using the platform so I can rest my head). I'm mostly active on my device forums. Not active anymore on Tuna, barely on Mako, not on Grouper, slacking on the One Plus One, and Nexus 7 2013 I should be a bit more. Rest of them I am very very active.
    Tricky question about finding time for life. I try to sleep less, which leaves me more time to work in between. My long-date GF still struggles to understand that even if she's on a off-work day that I can't stop and I have **** to do as if I was in a normal job, which pisses me off tremendously, so I end up working ~15 hours per day when she's off to work, and about half of that when she's not working. It's hard. It's not something anyone here realises since I don't really complain, but it's hard. I gotta run Kernels, apps, marketing, user support on XDA, Twitter, Google+, e-mail, and I have to keep thinking of new ideas, better ways to implement features, how to fix hard to fix bugs. prioritize what I should waste my time on/what I shouldn't, and I still have to find time to read, and keep learning. And then, as mostly everyone else (if not, I'm sorry) I still have a family and **** storms from family bull**** like any other person etc. I barely ever feel tired, and I only had one (very) small mental breakdown last year where I was really reaching my limit, but I fixed it in about a day. Other than that I'm a very happy person, very positive, and always looking for the good things during the darkest times.

    TLDR: it's hard. But I give it all to make it happen.

    r6 is up! It should cure all WiFi ****ery on module loading. Had help from @osm0sis . Took me a while to figure this one out and had the help from my early work on the OP3T since some of their users were having the same problem so after scratching my head for a while and osm0sis helping we figured it out.

    Also lower power consumption from the big cluster, lowered hispeed_freq and min_sample_time. This should net you some major savings through the day.

    Sorry couldn't get the CM14.1 version out this weekend, I tried, but was overwhelmed with 23497329473 different things. I'll try my best through the week.

    OK, this initial response is super unexpected. I had a VERY rough day today because of a close family member passing away and it really warms my heart to see SO MANY positive posts, means the world to me.

    With that out of the way, couple things:
    1 - Please read the changelogs & OPs. This is not meant to be flashed in the community build because we have no Kernel sources for that. The changelog specifically says Oxygen OS. Please read before asking;
    2 - It's obvious this won't work on the 3T (duh!);
    3 - Don't bother asking for 3T Kernel. I already asked OP to send me a device. It's up to them not me because I'm not buying it myself just for development.

    I just got a massive erection because of this...

    :highfive:

    Flashed!! booted!! Op3lite ROM!! 3.2.7!! Thank you!!

    You're ****ing welcome.

    Now till time installed the Great XANA and battery was amazing but now trying The Franco,Kernel hope that I shall be compatible with Open Beta 7

    Read the notice at the top of this post.

    IS THIS FOR REAL. YOU made my lg optimus one A BEAST!!!!

    Ahah LG Optimus One, what a frickin' legend.

    Yes, seems to work fine.
    There seem to be some issues with FKU, however (changing zip download path closes the app, so does launching system monitor).

    Weird. I'll check my crash logs

    Can you please add usb fast charge.

    What for? Even connected to the computer this thing charges pretty fast.

    Buying an OP3 was a good choice I guess !
    Will try once I change ROM ^^

    It's a great device!

    So, maybe I am not to familiar with Franco, but what sets this apart from say, ElementalX?

    Difficult to say because I really can't say bad things about ElementalX or flar2. Great guy and been doing some amazing works.

    What I'm pretty good at is finding a great setup for flash & forget situation. I spend a lot of time measuring & reading to feedback and ajust the Kernel to be ready to use as I see fit with a nearly perfect balance between great battery life without compromising performance (trust me, it's hard). Also I go to great lenghts to be active (you can see by my post count & thanks number how active I am) and make it feel like every user is important to me and part of the whole thing. I really spend a long time squeezing that extra minute of battery life and my custom Kernels are known for that.

    Other than that I'm usually pretty explicit on my github patches so it's easy to read it up and check what I've been doing.

    Do I need anything else to apply the mods served with this kernel? FKUpdater for example?

    FKUpdater is my app. You don't need to buy it, it's just a convenience (and supports me of course). Read my reply above.

    Anyone else having problems with notifications being pushed through?

    No. The Kernel has absolutely nothing to do with notifications going through or not.


    No... that's a pretty dumb question seeing this is the One Plus 3 forum.

    Wow! Remember your kernel för the nexus 4! Damn this is awesome!

    Yeah!!!

    ROYALTY is among us my dear friends? we welcome you sir, wow Franco is on the seen lol made my day!

    Eheh, don't exagerate. I'm happy to be here and provide a good experience.

    Great to see you here Franco!

    I know it's r1 and all, but in case you've missed it: fku shows max cpu speed as 1.6 GHz and it sets that for max speed for all cpus. This causes any per-app profile to allow for only 1.6 GHz max frequency for all cores. Reapplying Default performance profile fixes these.

    Sent from my Nexus 5

    Ugh, where exactly? I don't remember having any restriction on freqs. Have you updated to FKUpdater 2.1.4?

    Really fly for a r1.

    Feature request: Disable touch keys when screen is pressed. Aaaaand display profiles!

    I'll see if that's possible. Display profiles well, I can add some built-in ones if the community builds them for me.
