FrancoKernel is a customizable kernel for Android devices. From the less knowledgeable to the most expert user, it combines a series of powerful features to manage and control your device and largely improve your battery life.

    When the download finishes, the Kernel Manager will start the flashing process in the background. The device will reboot automatically with the new kernel when it is complete.

NOTE: If your device isn't supported by Franco Kernel, you can always use the "Manual Flasher" to flash any kernel without having to go to the recovery (if you are rooted, of course).
