    Don't know if it's the best but it's very good: cm7 with the latest incredikernel (see cm7 nightlies thread in the op for links)

    Everybody will tell you differently for the most part. The only way to say what combo works best for you is to try a few, if not all, of the different options out there, and see yourself! Have fun flashing.

    I have tried quite a few... IMO i would have to say that CM7 stable or nightlies w/ incredikernels (any of them from .3 and up). It is a basic 2.3.3 gingerbread ROM with ADW launcher and some extras thrown in for his/her pleasure for some reason, of all the ROMs and MOD's I try. I keep coming back to it.

    BUT... I completely agree with crondable. Also, you need to see PVilleComps sticky thread on ROMs and MOD's for all of your possible Dinc choices... He is pretty good about keeping it updated with the most current info.

    ROM
    Clockwork+Cyanogen 7.0.3

    Default

    For my Dinc1, my battery life with Cyanogen is better and much more predictable. I can easily go well into a second say with heavy use worth my Seidio 3500 battery.

    I've noticed that my handset does not heat up the way it used to with the same kind out usage on the stock Rom.

    ROM
    CM7.2 / Incredikernel

    Default

    CM7 with the latest incredikernel was my go to setup for a while, until I tried MIUI 1.4.22 with incredikernel. So far I am getting slightly better battery life with MIUI and love it. I don't think I will be switching roms for a while now.

    So, after being a part of CM7 for along time and loving it... I finally found a ROM that combines alittle bit of sense and CM7 together... its called SKYRAIDER 4.0... and the battery life is AMAZING. i am using the stock kernel that comes baked into it and am set up the same as I was on CM7 (like syncing and stuff like that)... I can go a whole day on 1 charge now... I didn't think I could be pulled away from CM, but alas, I have been.....

    Final analysis: SkyRaider is the best I have found for function and battery life... here is a link to the AC post. http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...lable-now.html

    I'm not the biggest CM7 fan (except for my nook color with Phiremod ) but this build of SkyRaider is outstanding. (I didn't use Skyraider previously as Virtuous was for me) The battery life is Phenomenal so far. I too am using the stock Kernel. WIll have to update my signature soon. I am looking for a Kernel to go with 4.0, but haven't gotten any recommendations yet. Stock is working just fine so far, but we are always looking for bigger and better , but battery life so far is great. I need a full week of work in my crappy reception building to truly put it too the test, but so far the last 2 days have been very good compared to any other Rom I have used.

    And I can personally vouch for ssethv. He raved about Skyraider on his Inc for a LONG time, up until he got his TBolt. Although I love CM7, I'm looking at trying Skyraider.

    I will vouch for that. I am running the newest Skyraider 4.2 stock with stock battery and I have no issues with it lasting me all day with several things going on (web browsing, streaming music, games, txt, email etc....) I love this ROM.
