    imnuts (world famous creator of the PBJT kernels) has released his build of the EP1W base. I flashed this last night and everything is running fast, snappy and smoothly. I have yet to do a battery calibration, but I have faith that I will not be disappointed in the battery life on this setup. Enjoy!

    Here's his personal website: imnuts EP1W

    [9-25-11][ROM][KERNEL]Infinity ROM - BETA : http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?...inity-ROM-BETA

    If you boot into CWM for any reason after flashing this ROM/Kernel and then reboot your phone, it will wipe all your data. Just FYI.

    EP1W is the new radio for GB, and if you read the first sentence on the link, it says:

    "This is a Gingerbread ROM for the DROID Charge (SCH-i510) based on the latest available leak, the EP1W build."

    @Halo- I'm running GC 2.0 right now. To run this ROM do I just proceed as normal in CWM? Have you tried the new modems? How well do they work?

    If you're on GC 2.0, go into CWM and wipe data/cache. Then just install the .zip. And yes, I've been on the EP1W modem for a while now and have noticed an improvement over the EE4 and EP1Q.

    I second what Halo said about the modems. I have been running them since they got ripped out of the leak and they are much better than the ones before.

    I'm new to rooting (just rooted for the first time to GC 2.0 last week). Can you explain more specifically what the advantages are to the new radio?

    Though I didnt have the issues before, the improvements I have heard are better data connectivity, faster data transfer, better call clarity and reception, and a stronger signal.

    Personally, I have a much stronger signal. I have solid 4G in areas where it would drop to 3G.

    Cool, I think I'll probably try it out. Is there anywhere that would have step by step instructions on how to get it running? I feel like I could probably blindly work my way through it, but if it's available I'd rather have set instructions.

    So I used Odin and attempted to flash the new modem. I'm not sure if it worked or not. How can I check?

    If Odin indicated "passed" after you flashed the EP1W modem, it worked and it is installed.

    FYI, new update is coming out (I just flashed it) And it is fantastic. TSM parts is great. Battery life is good and I can only assume it will get better. 15 hours of moderate/heavy use and I was at 30% battery.

    Any ETA on the release?

    I flashed this about a week and a half ago, and its pretty nice Looking forward to the new lockscreens and TSM parts.

    Im currently using this ROM. After a battery calibration I got 18 hours of normal use (heavy texter and I use the 4g occasionally). 4g was left on all day and auto-brightness. I like it so far but I keep getting hot resets and idk why. Its super fast, especially when you apply some tweeks. Really a solid fast rom.

    If you read the OP from the linked thread at RootzWiki you would see that the superuser app is not included and you have to download it from the market. Download the superuser app from the market and you will be fine. Also there is an update to the su binary so after you download the superuser app, open it and you should be prompted to update the su binary.
