    Uncommon Sense ROM + KingxKlick #4 = me moving on from Virtuous. The lockscreen music controls even support Pandora. This ROM is awesome.

    Performance-wise, is it more responsive than stock Sense 2.2? I'm researching about the different ROMs, but since I really like Sense I would only upgrade to a custom ROM if I will noticed more responsiveness out of the phone.

    When I first flashed it, I noticed that it was pretty impressively quick, probably even more so than stock. I am noticing some choppiness at the moment, though it probably has more to do with me messing with the kernel settings.

    I would say definitely give it a shot. Create a nandroid backup using ROM manager first though, so you can always go back if you have a problem.

    EDIT: Yep. Just uninstalled SetCUP and im not having any issue anymore. I would say go for it.

    Look for Hydra and KingxKlick kernels. Most people have good luck from either of them, I prefer the KingxKlick BFS kernels myself.

    So setCPU caused the choppiness you were experiencing? I installed it the other day (Stock Sense 2.2) and just with the "Off Screen" profile was able to get 16 hours out of the battery (1hr phone call, short calls, 100 txt msgs, couple of downloads, 1.5hr music play, etc).

    Yeah I mean I know a lot of people have really good luck with SetCPU profiles, but I've always found that it compromises the performance on my device. That's just me though- my only use for it is for overclocking kernels that default at 998Mhz, though I like to steer clear of it as much as possible.

    Another thing that could be causing you some issues is the 9.01 radio. My phone was stalling out, locking up, and rebooting randomly. First I thought it was the ROM but it didn't fix it. I flashed back to 7.28 radio and everything is golden again.

    As far as the SetCpu stuff if you set the screen off profile any lower than 245mhz you will have all kinds of issues from what I've seen. Each phones acts differently with different mixes of stuff if it doesn't work it doesn't work.

    Good suggestion, Q. I'm actually loving the 9.01 radio though. Works lightning fast on my phone, and everything is actually quite stable.

    I think SetCPU is always going to be one of those applications that I install, mess with for a bit, uninstall, then repeat.

    And in other news, deficitism is reporting that v0.7 should be coming soon with a lot of fixes/additions.

    Yeah I was one of those people who didn't see any difference in the 9.01 radio. Signals were the same etc. But phone stability and battery life suffered on my device. As with anything some things don't work as expected on every phone.

    As far as SetCpu if I'm using an OC'able kernel I always use it.(Unless the ROM supports scaling etc. like Ruby!) Never had an issue with it even on Cyanogen, but I know some people are saying that it was causing lockups on their phones under that particular ROM. But this is the beauty of Android, install, reinstall, try it, like it keep it, don't remove it!!! (I love experimenting with my phone it's highly addictive!)

    downloaded .8, but am unsure on how to install it. Tried dropping zip file into SD and using ROM manager, but no luck. Any help?

    As near as I can tell, v0.7 was the same thing as v0.8, except that people were having issues with Sense FCing. v0.8 is slated to fix that. Downloading now- will report back.

    Theguy- if you downloaded from your DInc's internet browser like I did, go into ROM Manager, select "Install ROM from SD Card", and locate your download folder. It should be in there.

    not sure why it wasnt being detected. but installed now

    looks very nice, runs real smooth... but, battery is dropping faster then ever! I'm literally just swipping through screens, playing with settings and the phone has dropped about 12%

    Often time after a flash, it takes my device a little while to works things out. Immediately after a flash, battery life is at its worst. Then it typically improves over the next day.

    Yeah, I have noticed that actually. Typically I found that it took maybe a day or so for email pushing to be activated after flashing a new ROM. But I've been using Uncommon Sense for almost a week now, and I still have to manually check my email.

    v0.9 beta is out as of last night, with reports of the first release candidate being released today. Highly recommend this ROM, as almost all of the issues have now been ironed out.

    So I just rooted a couple of days ago and got the Hydra kernal running on my Inc.

    I decided to go with this custom ROM so I did the following.

    First I did a backup
    Then I wiped data/wipe cache
    Then installed the zip

    Rebooted and everything runs.

    My question is, is there a way to get all my data back without over writing the custom ROM or do I need to reinstall everything that I had and set everything up again?

    If I did a restore to the backup I just made before installing this ROM, I'll get all my data back but it will also load back to default 2.2 Froyo before I installed the ROM correct?

    Sorry this is my first ROM.

    I use app brain, and i sync every time i put a new app on. That takes care of getting all my apps back handily. I also use Titanium backup, so all the data for those apps are also easily recovered. All my contacts come from the cloud via my gmail account and all my music and photos are on my sd card. That pretty much puts me where I was with a custom rom in 20 to 30 minutes....

    Has anyone played with kernels yet and found one that plays nice with uncommon sense? I am really in love with this ROM and better battery life would be icing on the cake...
