    Here is a recovery flashable zip for r5. Wipe caches before flashing.

    Before you download this, please visit Franco's thread and read about his work.

    I take no credit for this kernel.

    anyone else have an issue with franco's kernel updater not recognizing the other 3 cores?
    I get Core 1 active and cores 2-4 offline.

    just seems weird to me.

    That's showing if the cores are online at the present time. Meaning it's spun down the other 3 because it doesn't need them right then.

    fire up a game, then switch back to the franco app really quick and you'll see them come online, then go back offline once the game loads in the background.

    If it couldn't find the cores or they were disabled it would say that, like it does on the gnex which is dual core.

    Are there drawbacks and consequences if I alter the settings of Fsync() and Logger under settings by disabling them? Would I loose data or need those boot logs down the road? Are there other tweaks that you as a power user would recommend?

    On the N7 I don't see much to gain from stressing either of these settings. I disable logger but leave the fsync as its set, again, no real difference to be had, IMO.

    I turn off logger and fsync on both on gnex and N7.
    so disabling fsync means you fun the risk of having issues with data integrity. Well the way i see it, most of what i care about syncs up with DB or Google+ in the way of photos. Everything else is either synced with Google or backuped with TiBu.
    I only notice marginal speed gains though and that could just be placebo.

    This. Although I'm terrible at determining minute differences.

    I haven't ventured into the kernel world yet. I have been reading up and researching. I am on a nexus 7 and GN both running CM10. Will Francos kernel work for both? Anybody have a better suggestion?

    Yes. Different kernel builds but he supports both devices.

    Thanks guys. I am going to try Franco's for now. As I said, I have been reading a lot and there is SOOO much out there to read it gets a bit daunting. Sometimes it's hard to find what you are looking for. So, if you would, humor me

    For GN running CM10 I should use: franco.Kernel-r249-384GPU.zip or franco.Kernel-r249-512GPU.zip
    For Nexus 7 running CM10 I should use: boot-r5.img

    THe nexus 7 needs to be done in Fastboot.


    slowly but surely understanding all of this stuff. Thanks for the help.

    All correct. Franco has made his app "franco.kernel Updater" compatible with grouper now, so you can also grab the app and it will auto-flash the kernel for you. It includes a number of options for customizing, too. It's worth the investment of a few bucks to support a great developer, though I believe he has a free version available in the Play Store now as well.

    I changed CPUQuiet Governor to runnable per Franco's advice after I started getting reboots with a commit he made on r5. Besides that, Turn Logger off and Wi-Fi PM_FAST.

    I am on R21 with the ability to scale GPU frequency. Where can I tweak the GPU frequency? Within the updater app or is there another app way to do that?

    Got it on the 484Mhz clock by editing the gpu_oc file

    The default clocks are: 416 416 416 380 332 285 234.
    To change to other clocks just do this: echo X X X 380 332 285 234 > sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/gpu_oc
    Substitute the X with 484, 520, 550, 600 or 700 if you'd like. Be careful that on higher clocks the device might get extremely hot and unstable. You're on your own.
