    I've been reading some really great things about Franco's kernel, and I'm thinking about flashing it. However, I've also read that theres an issue where you need to open and close the camera app after every boot or your battery will basically drop off the face of the earth. Thats not a terribly hard thing to do, but I'm worried I'd forget to do it then be stuck without a phone. Is this actually the case? Is the drain THAT bad, or is it just standard battery life?

    Also, does anyone know of a good ROM to use with Franco's kernel? I don't know if one would be better than another for any particular reason. I'm on axiom 2.2 now, and its just OK. I'd like to try something other than axiom now.

    Well I decided to flash AOKP milestone 2 based on a lot of positive reports and it being compatible with Franco's kernel (from what I've read). I also downloaded Franco's 13.1 nightly, but I won't be flashing it until I get some more info on it.

    Oh, well hello, Franco! DancingNexus

    So, what is going on with the camera app and battery drain that I read about? Is that still an issue? Is there an explanation (link?) for what's going on that causes this problem?

    I'm eager to flash this kernel. I'm loving AOKP so far, but it needs a speed boost.

    I believe Franco is referring to a 4.0.2 and 4.0.3 problem rather than a kernel issue. He thinks the reason android OS runs so high is partially due to the camera sensor opening up on each reboot. He is asking people to test it running his kernel to make sure idle drain isn't a kernel problem. When I ran his kernel on AOKP, it ran fine for me.

    Oh, I must have gotten confused. So there are no weird issues like that then? If not, then I guess I'll flash it tonight.

    Getting ready to try Franco's Kernel, could anyone be so kind as to give me your MD5 check sum for his #13.1 build.
    Thanks.

    Ah, ok, I see where the confusion came from lol

    Well, I'm liking the kernel so far, but its not seeming like the battery life's quite as good as AOKP's stock kernel (whatever that is). I am overclocked too though and (i believe) NOT undervolted on Franco's. Whereas, the AOKP kernel wasn't overclocked, but probably was undervolted.

    the app has option for hot plug which turns of the CPU when phone is sleep mode which saves battery I'm not sure how to enable it with a script or something

    You run a script in terminal emulator. Hot plug DEFINITELY saves battery but its very unstable. You will experience lock ups at some point.

    Try conservative governor. The phone really responds well to it and helps battery life a lot. I don't run aokp so I am not sure if they have built in performance settings, if they do not than you can use setcpu, CPU tuner, or rom toolbox to adjust the settings if you weren't already aware, or support the dev and buy his app.
