    Ran Francos 25 build vs AK latest stable release on Slimsaber ROM. I use LTE only.

    Franco wins for battery life. Has slight scroll lag and not as quick and snappy. Overall awesome.

    AK wins for smoothness and overall performance. The battery is still pretty good - 8 hours screen time.

    I used these kernels pretty much identically from my house so these results are about as fair as humanily possible. Overall I have to go with AK even though Franco has its perks.

    Franco - 9 hours SOT
    AK - 8 hours SOT PicsArt_1413267324262.jpg Ak2PicsArt_1413267456153.jpg f1PicsArt_1413272159306.jpg fPicsArt_1413272116995.jpg

    I prefer AK but on last kernel my touchscreen would randomly go insane, so I went back to franco and it works fine

    I really want to try AK because I feel the phone slow with franco kernel

    Im on 33R, which kernel version should I flash?

    Also, Im using franco right now, should I flash stock kernel(or entire rom) before flashing AK?

    Does AK needs any tweak before flashing?

    I usually flash the stock kernel before moving between franco/AK.

    With that said the first thing you should be flashing is 38R

    I love AK Kernel - currently using 66 gold on liquidsmooth nightlies. great performance, good battery, and i really like how it allows you to overclock. my OnePlus is a beast now - just scored a 45,845 on AnTuTu benchmark 5.1. I don't usually put much stock in benchmarking applications, but I'd never seen it score so high before.

    Would highly recommend the LiquidSmooth ROM paired with the AK Kernel

    By the way if you update to franco 26 or above and try to flash another kernel it will screw up your wifi. It won't turn on anymore once you reboot.

    How do you fix this if it happens?

    Flashing the stock kernel and wiping cache and dalvik

    Not true. You have to dirty flash the entire stock ROM. That is the only thing that will fix it.

    There is an alternative, flash this after flashing the original kernel ;)

    I use Al kernel with encrypted data AND F2FS partitions, works ok, but if you use encrypted data you loose the compass (it's a known bug)

    I've always used Franco kernel, today I've tried to flash AK kernel but the WiFi doesn't work. So I flashed back franco and everything is OK.
    I've tried with the stock kernel and I've obtained the same result: the WiFi doesn't work.
    It seems that it lacks something when I flash a kernel different from Franco kernel.
    In both case I've also tried to wipe cache and davlik

    The only reason i'm using franco kernel is because touch issues in stock kernel.
    i'm on franco r30 and it has no touch issues and the battery im gettin now is 5hrs SOT :/
    with heavy usage of course.
