Pinnacle 1.3 vs Dlev 5.0
Hello all, I've finally rooted my Captivate with CM7 but the battery life on the thing is horrible. (See attachment.)
I was initially introduced to Pinnacle 1.3 as a rooted ROM to try out but I decided I'd try CM7 because of all the hype about it. Now that I've experienced it, I'm tired of CM7. I miss the music player and the video player from the stock KH3 ROM I had, those were really good and on the CM7 ROM I can find nothing to adequately replace them.
So now I'm wondering which is better, Pinnacle or Dlev? And why? I've looked at both xda links for them and seen the features list, but there're always some complaints and problems in the many pages of each post. I was hoping others in this forum could help me out.

You know my opinion . Pinnacle has better battery life than even most other KH3 ROMs. None of the newer than KH3 builds seem to be 'perfected' yet. I did put the Samurai KJ3 kernel on my Pinnacle and converted to EXT4 with the Voodoo Control app. It IS a little faster, and my BT audio skipping issue is gone.
As to the music player on CM... PowerAmp is one of the better ones you can get for Android, and it works on any ROM. Not sure on a video player. But the battery life does suck on CM, not through any fault of theirs, but the drivers they have to use to get it to work at all on our phones will not 'sleep' properly. CM requires an extra battery, which is a fairly easy solution . Not that I have a spare.
