Are there any alternative kernels that work for CM11 that might provide any benefits (ie improved battery life, fast USB charging).  Was looking into franco, then found out the hard way (luckily made a nandroid first) that it apparently doesn't work with CM.

Take this with a grain of salt. But according to this article:

http://4x.reddit.com..._thing_to_ever/

Tiny Kernel "supposedly" works. I myself have been afraid to attempt any different kernels; I'm still fairly new at this so I don't know too much. I definitely wouldn't try it but othes on here with more experience than I may say different.

Here's the xda link. I hate reedit.

Thanks.  I had actually read that reddit thread myself (also not a fan), downloaded that, but then before installing it had gotten the impression it was only for the gsm gnex. After rereading things, looks like it's supposed to work. I'll do a nandroid and give it a try today.

I had good luck with mpokang's 1080 kernel while running CM11 M3.    Battery life was a bit better than it was on the stock CM kernel.    You'll have to look around for a copy though - XDA pulled all the links because the dev wouldn't post all of his changes showing how he was getting so much ram back...  You might find it over on Rootz.   If not, LMK and I can post a link.

Been using tiny kernel for over a month now and like it a lot. Better battery life and works with Touch Control app that lets me tap screen while off to turn on (like LG). Gives some additional frequencies/governors/etc, but haven't messed with that much, just like the extra battery life I get

I have been using Franco Kernel r395 for about 3 weeks. It lets you overclock up to 1.8 GHz and use fast USB charge which comes in handy if you use car chargers and your phone runs at a loss when doing anything short of making calls. The kernel has been working flawlessly for me. Give it a try. Just make sure you install r395 and not r394. r394 caused a boot loop for me.

I tried the r394 kernel and also had a boot loop :(.

How did you install r395? Does the FK Updater app work safely, or is it better to install through adb?

I downloaded r395 from the link above and flashed it. The FK updater app also works but I would rather do it myself. However, I do use the FK app to control the various kernel features as it is much easier than typing commands in terminal.
