as some of use have noticed, the latest franko kernal app update really borks the color control settings.

before the update, i was set at his recommendation, 180,192,200.
i updated the app, and rebooted the phone.
reboot was completely normal, the ROM poped up right away completely normal.
then about 10 seconds later, i had a VERY dark RED screen. thankfully i could navigate the phone completely fine. after freaking out, rebooting a couple times, flashing a new kernal ect, i finally checked the franko Color multipliers....they were ALL in the 400+ range causing this weird coloration.

just though i would let anyone know that was having the same issue. i know i am not the only one as there were multiple people in the official franko kernel thread over at XDA that had similar issues.

also, a clean install of the app fixes the problem if you have a completely black screen like some did.

It scared me when the phone went dark. I was able to see enough to uninstall and reinstall the app. Still didn't fix the darkness. Adjusted the color manually and now all is well.

That explains my problem. I had a completely black screen. I did a rom reinstall yesterday because I thought it was the rom. good to know what caused the problem.

Had the same issue yesterday. Easy fix really just a minor annoyance. Franco already pushed an update to hopefully fix the issue.

Had this happen when I updated it a night or so ago when I was ... "disposed." Was like I was in a Terry Gilliam novel or something.

glad everyone found this useful. i was freaking out...until i found the color multipliers.
and as others have said, Franko has updated his app 3 times since this fluke update. he's a good dev...and super quick.
