Did anyone see improved battery life w/ CyanogenMod V7.0.0-RC1 ?
I rooted my phone using unrevoked and installed juice defender (ultimate) and I did see some improvement with the battery since without it most of its constant 3G on which drains battery. I'm tempted to install CyanogenMod but if I won't see any improvement as far as battery goes I don't see any other reason why should I?
Did anyone had stock ROM (like me) and now installed V7.0.0-RC1, did you see any improvements?

I have seen a substantial increase over stock during my use of most of the CM 7 nightles even, and the RC1 build seems to be similar to the last several nightlies prior to release.
By the way, you generally do not need any tools to manage power consumption with CM 7 - I used juice defender on stock ROM and with CM 6.x builds, but dont even have it, or anything else that kills tasks or manipulates radios or services on the phone, installed anymore.
Seems changes in resource management for Gingerbread made dramatic improvements to power consumption. Most testing has shown that utilities that used to be so beneficial are now detrimental because they hamper the ability of the OS to take care of those tasks.

I have seen a dramatic DECREASE in battery life after installing rc-1. I have been running Nightly #3 for a few weeks with phenomenal battery life (running SetCpu). For example, Superbowl weekend, I had a full charge Friday night at 7:00. Monday morning I woke up for work at 6Am and still had 12%. That is with all syncing, gps, bluetooth, and wifi turned off. Also fairly light usage. On a typical day, I take it off the charger at 6:00am and by 10pm I am at 50% minimum.
That's how it should be with stock ROM.
Do you remember which version did you had all that joy?
What would I need to bring it back to prior unrevoked root a.k.a stock ROM?
I have crack on a screen and I'm not sure if I want to keep or exchange it, mostl likley I will exchange it because I pay for insurance anyway.
All what I remeber backing up is nand ?

Last night I installed cm7 before that it was stock ROM with unrevoked. Today I'll test cm7 and see how long before I need to put it on a charger. With stock I would take it off charge and at 7:30am and around 3pm I would get low battery warning.
Anyone found solution how to install Sprint visual mail app?

My battery life is unchanged... most likely due to my changing kernels and overclocking. I want better battery life, but not at the cost of my new found speed boost! LOLThose who nobly do their best have no reason to bow their head in shame
