    Thinking about flashing a custom kernel, Im hearing good things about the battery life on Franco, can someone briefly point me to a link or let me know the benefits to each ?

    Thanks guys.

    try them both and decide for yourself, for me I always flash Francos kernels into my devices,
    I trust his work and I like the results.

    AK Kernel did way better than Franco Kernel (freaking Franco interactive governor makes the cpu frequencey jump like hell....!!), but the stock CM11 nightly Kernel does just fine too and you get the latest updates immediately too..

    I loved franco for my N5 but somehow with my OPO it broke so many things (namely vibrator intensity, audio, and init.d), so I've moved to AK and I love it.

    Tried franco, didn't notice anything substantial. At least it didn't hurt the system haha.

    Hey guys that's using AK do you have to flash all the stock kernel and others or is it now that you just have to flash the kernel.

    if you are using the kernel for the first time and you have never flashed another kernel then you just flash the latest stable version for CM11s,you can also start flashing the nightlies as well if you want but i prefer to use the stable
    the only reason that you have to flash the stock first is if you have been using different kernels as there may be some conflicts so it is advised to flash stock first then AK to clear up any issues

    Feel free to post here again with a comparison later on :). I'm running Franco #19 at the moment. But I've been curious about AK kernel. On Franco the UI tends to stutter alot at times but the batterylife is amazing!
