    hows the battery usage on it? Heard that the franco.Kernel fixes the issues of the android system, os, and media server.

    Battery usage is significantly better than the stock kernel. As to the rest of it, you will have to try it to see if it corrects any issues you are experiencing with your setup.

    I have just installed Franco kernel yesterday hoping it would improve my battery. So far very impressed by it, but will update my experience after few more days of use.

    I use stock rom, Franco kernel r71

    I'm currently running r90 without issues. I haven't really been monitoring the battery life as the main driver for me to flash a custom kernel is for the slide to wake gesture from Touch Control works with 4.2.2 OTA. This app now works flawlessly again.

    I'm using it on stock with no problems. Gamma correction made a noticeable difference in screen quality.

    Hello,

    I have a question regarding using kernels on this phone. I was planning to run the "Franco's Kernel" on the nexus 4 to see if it improved battery life; but not sure if it requires rooting the phone first?
    I see that I can download Franco's kernel updater from the google apps store, so do I just run it from there and it should be fine?

    Thanks in advance.
    P.S. If anyone has experience doing this or know a forum post that explains some steps, please link here. Really appreciated as I am new to smartphones.

    Yes your phone needs to be rooted in order to use a custom kernel. Once rooted just download the franco app from the playstore, use it to backup your stock kernel then download francos using the app. it's dead easy.
