Franco Kernel is one of the more popular kernels used by Android users. A kernel tells the hardware in your Android device how to behave, kind of like your mommy tells you how to behave. You can modify how fast your processor runs by over or under clocking, how your screen behaves or optimize your system for battery life. Think of the kernel as the head elf in Satan’s workshop. When elves aren’t building enough toys, the head elf gives them a strong talking to. Santa is abusive to some of the elves and will beat them if they misbehave. The head elf doesn’t like this at all but what is he going to do? Santa is his boss!
Now that you have a good understanding of what a kernel does, let’s go over some of the features of Franco Kernel and see what it can do.
Auto flash updates
Sometimes the best thing about a kernel or ROM is OTA updates. Franco Kernel is extremely convenient with its updates and ability to flash with just a press of the button.
You can save different configurations called “Governors” that will customize your CPU and GPU clock speeds. Try underclocking your stuff on devices like the Nexus 6 to get more battery life. You can even set specific governors for different apps. So if you’re going to launch an app that requires a little more horsepower, Franco Kernel will autoload the governor that you’ve set for that app.
Backup & Restore Kernels
When messing with kernels, you can sometimes turn your phone into a ticking timebomb. Unless you want to blow your house to smithereens, you’ll want a backup of a working kernel that you can restore from if you mess up.
There is a bonus “System Monitor” that will keep a close eye on all of the stuff going on with your phone. Check your battery temperature, CPU frequency, GPU frequency, and how much gas is left in your car. There will even be a little icon in your notification bar that shows your CPU temperature.
