    Also, picking a governor and i/o scheduler that suits your usage is very important

    Yes bro very disappointing to see such a fall in benchmarks, is it really a fall in performance or is there benchmark tweeks within the cm kernal. Because funnily enough all my best scores are always with the stock CM kernal no matter which ROM I install.

    Same here. But I run stock kernel, but if an update ever happens to tank battery life, I will switch to Franco then.

    Any idea which version goes with CM11s 25R ? I came back to 25R just to give it a try and want to install the AK Kernel. Already tried AK-072 for CM11s and it gave me a bootloop.

    @netr0pa Tagging you as you are the face of 25R ;) can you help me here?

    To be honest, I have never understood the need of custom kernel on 25R....


    You don't even need to cheat with custom kernel when you are running 25R to be honest...


    But to each his own. If you like to experiment with your phone, then go ahead but I stay strong with the stock kernel which gave me 12 hours SOT so for me, no need for AK 47 kalashnikov -kernel or Franco kernel or what ever other kernels there are out there.

    "If it doesn't break, no need for change", that's my motto.

    It depends on what you value the most. If you want to have ultimate battery time, then 25R is probably the right choice, even though I have never been running it. If you prefer best performance and smoothness, then don't lose time and flash away CM12. Flashing kernel is optional, right now I'm running AK 097 and I can't be happier. Not a single lag and loading times are just awesome, and when im talking about no lags, i really mean 0.

    Tried AK kernel and Franco. From my experience, AK is for those hardcore tweakers (with AK and the Synapse app you can tweak anything) so I ended up using the Franco Kernel. I have great battery life (I am also using Greenify) and I just let the kernel do everything by itself.

    I prefer Franco. The battery life is better than with AK Kernel and Franco has more screen color options.

    I don't want to tweak much with kernels too. BTW which Android version are you running? I am running euphoria rom on my OPO. it is stable but drains MORE battery in standby mode. like 35% in one night....

    If it drains 35% something is not right. You have apps running on the background or even a rogue app. Use Wakelock detector to see what it is.

    I'm using the last CM12 nightly. Normally overnight it drains between 3 and 6% which is pretty normal.

    It's nothing related to play services. It only takes 2% battery. There's a problem in the ROM itself I guess...

    Android OS takes the most % oft battery? Then its caused by the play services!

    Franco is pretty much the best right now I'm my opinion. Boeffla sucks on Oneplus one, and is no where near as good as it was on my S3. AK, to me is worse than stock.

    Android OS takes 1% LOL. it's a bug actually in 5.0 ROMS, that it keeps on running google+ and some apps in the background. It would be fixed in the next 5.1 by google. Lollipop is Gonna ROCK.
