App History & Updates

What's Changed
Dear Updates Diary,
Hi again! This update is a bit more exciting than the last one. Not only it features translations for German and Hindi (more to come, make sure you visit the translations link in the Help & Support section), but I fixed a darn bug which wouldn't show up the "Underclock cpu" tip as applied unless the clock was at least 25% lower than the default. Now it'll say "applied" if the clock is any value lower than max.
My cat's asking if you would give us a review in the Play Store!
Price update  Price changed from $4.52 to $4.19.
Version update Franco Kernel Manager Updater was updated to version 2.2.10
Name changed  Name changed! franco.Kernel updater now is known as Franco Kernel Manager Updater.
Version update Franco Kernel Manager Updater was updated to version 14.2

by C####:

Best Custom Kernel Management Software For The Best Custom Kernel

by R####:

Nice move to support the Dev.

by R####:

I installed Franco Kernel Updater, I think it was, and the last update I saw indicated a reduced screen brightness to save battery.. Occasionally the screen now goes blank on a Nexus 5, and I don't know how to deal with it. Sometimes holding the power button will reboot the phone, but now it doesn't. Your help is requested, please.

by Q####:

I initially thought the interface layout was kinda weird, but I've gotten accustomed to this interface, and the frequent updates add new features and fix bugs pretty quickly. Would love for an option to show small cpu and gpu graphs on the welcome screen, right now you have to go to a different segment to see a graph.

by R####:

Already purchased still Why I can't see Performance Profile,battery Labs etc.... Do I need to donate again? THANKS FOR REPLY! Yes I am using FK r14 version on my OP3T. Still unable to view performance setting and kernal setting.

by R####:

Would it be possible to use the app profile, when the app still is running in the background? For example set GPS High Accuracy when navi app start but stay at that profile when i switch a moment to another app?

by L####:

Problem solved by clearing app data and restarting the application.

by W####:

Best companion app for Franco kernel. One the most beautiful and material design standards app on playstore available. Everything is easy to use and we'll sorted.

by R####:

Edit: After contacting the developer of this app I can no longer recommend it anymore. Unfortunately after the ~4 days the developer made it very clear he is not concerned with the outcome of his app, only that you donate to him if you are impressed with the first impressions. I can nearly guarantee you will NOT be impressed after a few days with this kernel as you will not be able to make any adjustments or changes without wiping and reflashing the entire system, you will have almost zero compatibility with newly installed apps, and almost zero compatibility with any restores over this kernel. Only a full wipe and flash will recover your build.

by R####:

Best kernel management app by far. Been using Franco Kernels on both my 6P and 3T and it's been great

by M####:

Any idea on when we will get an update for Exodus 5.1.1

by H####:

10/10 must have if rooted

by R####:

Amazing developer. Just missing display profiles, I only see 'stock' what happened to others?

by Y####:

It's all kernel!

by R####:

The best kernel and the great app to manage it. Period.

by A####:

Need to be rooted. Awesome app

by R####:

Great kernel control and flasher

by R####:

Franco just does a killer job at everything. His kernel is practically the gold standard on all the devices he supports, which is a selling point on its own, but his app (this one! The one you're looking at!) is fantastic, too. No other app is as clean, or immediately useful. Tweak like a crack-flashing power user or let Franco's "battery life labs" do all the work for you; this app is truly for anyone with a supported (and already rooted!) device.

by T####:

This tool is amazing, a must have! The interface is simple and functional. Congrats!

by R####:

Nicely done & quite useful too. Worth every bit of my money. Keep up the good work, dev!

by R####:

Grade A stuff for custom kernels.

by M####:

Awesome kernel manager from a dev who writes awesome custom kernels. Thanks for making my phone work like it's supposed to!

by R####:

I really wanted to flash the Franco kernel on my OnePlus One running LineageOS (7.1.1), but despite being functionally identical to CyanogenMod both the app and my recovery refuse to cooperate with fk-64. I hope the developer will consider supporting LineageOS on my device.

by O####:

Was best but the new battery life labs is not working as expected... Underclocking automatically even on full battery or while charging.

by R####:

A wide array of tools for controlling a terrific kernel for my device.

by U####:

please teach me how to set big cores to 'conservative' governor. using a oneplus 3

by O####:

frequency setting in per-app-mode is not working. Always stick with lowest 300Mhz. Device is Nougat oneplus 3t. Please fix. Thanks

by R####:

This app has every option you could possibly need won't let you down

by P####:

Purchased again, no issues

by R####:

Super useful and easy to set up

by L####:

Worth every penny!!

by R####:

Great app also.

by R####:

Back in the days of the Galaxy Nexus francokernel was the bomb but sadly this app has been abandoned and left to rot. Using the OnePlusOne this app says the latest kernel revision is r0 and won't let me auto download it. Guess the server he used to use for the app is gone, no big deal. Manually downloaded the kernel from xda and this app detects the kernel and lets you configure the profiles no worries. Sadly the kernel shows its age by lacking support for more modern features like HID support which allows password managers on your phone to type over USB emulating a keyboard. There is also no build for Nougat with the last supported OS being Marshmallow (which is okay because that's what I'm using still but shows lack of active dev) You are then faced with another issue caused by the developer abandoning it which is that the app is using an outdated root access library. When you open the app SuperSU prompts you to grant access as normal but after granting "allow always" every reboot this app will be denied which means any custom profiles and settings you have configured won't actually apply until you manually launch the app. Was good back in 2013 but it's clear the developer has moved on since.

by R####:

Franco is the man. My OP3T is amazing with his Kernel and the app is just the icing on the cake.

by R####:


by R####:

Great kernel managerial application. Well done Sir.

by R####:

Fixed everything broken on the Nexus 5x. Vibration, screen, speaker volume, battery life, etc. Why can't Google do this? Epic kernel/app.

by R####:

Great! I like the latest addition of the battery helper. I was having good experiences with the stock settings (of your kernel) and naptime. I've applied a few settings that were suggested and will see how they go. I'll probably try a few per app profiles too

by S####:

I love the new battery labs! Great work.

by R####:

It makes my OnePlus 3t much better
