I'm running Xenon and loving it. Kernels are kind of debatable for the N7 right now

I'm running dirty AOKP with the Trinity kernel and it's IMO the best I've ran. Very customizable and easy to install with aroma installer.

How so? Currently running Xenon with Franco r41 stable with good balance of batt and perf. What kernels have you tried that make you go meh?

I've tried the stock kernel, motley, and Lean. Haven't tried Franco but haven't been terribly impressed by any. If anything, they've all made my battery life worse

Fair enough, course it depends on what you use device for and what tweaks you make to kernel settings. Takes a while experimenting with settings via Trickster (Play store) as well, Franco thread has some good pointers to various settings.

Yeah for sure. I use mine N7 for the same thing most people use it for. Facebook, WikiPedia, a couple games here and there. Nothing extremely resource-hogging. But I'm lucky if I can get 4+ hours screen on time. I have a rooted Galaxy Nexus as well so I'm not stranger to roms and kernels, but just haven't hit that sweet spot with this, but I still love it
