CM7, GingerBread, BAMF Remix, Radios and Kernels
With all the new stuff that has leaked i am curious as to what people have tried and stuck with or went back to.
I am still on Das BAMF 1.6.3 with Stock Radio ( I think ... base 1.16.00.0223r and 1.13.605.7) with Imoseyon's leankernel 2.5.
I have not even flashed the radio file that vzw released and was later unsigned by jcase.
So i want to know what are you currently running. GB leak? CM7.1.0 RC 0.1? Das BAMF? and with which radios/kernels.
I haven't been able to keep up with all the posts both here and on XDA because im getting ready to start school again next week. So i need some input. Is Das BAMF going to be updated soon? that way i will just wait for that to come out.

I am also curious about this question. I flashed Das Bamf 1.63 remix to my thunderbolt last night in hopes of getting some better battery life and also for the cool features. Are there settings that I should do to make my battery better with Das Bamf? Do most use the kernel that comes with this Rom or do you use a different kernel that you have had good luck with the battery? Thanks in advance for your replies and help.
With the latest being released. What kernels and radios are you running. The latest Gapps is 20110307 right?
Yea there are different kernels that can be used and using set cpu can also allow you to set up profiles like setting the cpu to run lower when screen is off. I don't really know enough to tell you how to do this stuff.

Ever since I rooted I've been using the latest Bamf remix. But the other day I flashed Virus Rom & holy hell, I found my new daily driver for sure! Virus is super snappy & responsive, debloated, battery life is great so far & feels similar to Bamf so it's not hard to get used to (aside from restoring settings & apps). Definitely recommend to anyone on the fence about switching Roms

Thank you both. I am definitely still a noob but am catching on quick. I came from blackberry and still have it for work but this is my first android phone and I am loving it so much. The only complaint I could even come up with would be the battery life but guess over time and playing around I'll figure out what works best and how to do it. And of course it wouldn't be possible without the help of people here, I have spent several hours reading up on the thunderbolt posts.

I'm still on my latest dasBAMF, which I love, but after installing CM7 yesterday to get netflix working (and it did work!) I'm debating on making the switch. Not only for Netflix, but CM7 felt very clean and seemed to have a lot of options, two things I am a fan of.

Me too, felt pretty good yesterday for the shot time I was on it. I just made a nandroid backup, tried CM&/Netflix, made a nandroid backup of that, and restored where I was when I started. Today I may go a little deeper. Install my backups on CM7 and such then make a nandroid backup and go back to dasBAMF... I LOVE THIS *$&@!

If you want great battery life, go into the Das BAMF toolkit.
Select CPU Settings.
Set Max to 1.024Ghz
Set Min to 245Mhz
Governor to onDemand
Check apply on boot.

Here it is, there's 2 versions, sense or senseless. I've been using the sense version & it's awesome, pretty similar to Bamf, but it seems a lot more responsive & snappy, enjoy!

I see that it is still in pre-alpha. I guess ill just wait till the real deal comes out.
Im getting sick on the normal stock ROM, cant wait till gingerbread or CM7 comes out.
Any thoughts on whether to go for gingerbread or CM7? Im not sure which would be the better choice
