Franco Kernel

A well-known Android programmer and kernel hacker, Francisco Franco has updated his Material Designed Franco Kernel to support the Nexus 6.

Before using the app, you must root your device. Franco notes that he does not accept refunds if you fail to do this, which probably means the device will brick if it is not rooted.

The only devices that are currently supported are the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 4, the Nexus 5, the Nexus 6, the Nexus 7 2012, the Nexus 7 2013, the Nexus 10, and the One Plus One. The Franco Kernel will work as long as these devices are running at least JellyBean 4.1.

The kernel hack includes such functions as auto flashing kernels, an interface to change CPU clocks, governor parameters, and other interfaces, color and sound control, and a System Monitor designed by developer Christian Göllner.

The Franco Kernel is easy to use in that the user can “Backup & Restore Kernels on the fly without any “geek” knowledge.” If you have one of the supported devices rooted, then it should be worth checking out, especially since it’s 30% off in the Play Store.
