    Task killers can and will actually hurt your battery life. You have to understand the Android system, which keeps things in the background without using battery. It then recalls those things when needed. If you use a task killer to kill those things, then they have to re-initialize each time, instead of being called from the background already initialized. This wastes your battery in the process.

    That's shocking. I'm attached to Superbox. It'll feel odd not using the task killer.

    I ran multiple tests when I had stock rom, and when I first had aosp, 5 out of 5 days with froyo, task killer saved me around 10% of my battery every day. With aosp and I'm sure its the same with iho or any gb rom, I would lose about 15% of my battery every day. Even with juice defender, I have worse battery life then I do without it. With gb roms I have yet to find an app that actually saves me battery except for watchdog app manager. All it does is make sure none of your apps go crazy and eat your recourses more than they should

    You can buy a 2800mah battery. I leave 3g on and still manage over 10 + hrs

    My 3g is always on, I always make it through the day and then some unless I am on the phone or tethering.

    If you can't make it through the day, with minimal use, you have an app eating your battery or you are on the stock rom, in which case apps and the rom are eating your battery. Under minimal use, there is no reason to not make 8-12 hours with a rom.

    I installed the hotmail app and its push technology was sucking up battery life. I changed the setting to check once in 15 minutes and it is significantly better now. You may have a similar app that is using a lot of battery life. Check the battery usage stats to see what is using up battery. You can also check to see how much time you do not have a cell connection. I have heard that uses significant battery life as well.

    i increased bat life by turning off all notifications. Except for email, it pushes 1 time a hour. There are many threads around here about battery life. Including the iho battery life thread here, shows users life span and most tell how they got it and will help you too. Also there a couple apps the will tell you what apps are keeping your phone from sleeping properly also.

    hi, i'm new here. i have an optimus v that i rooted and put bumblebee on months ago. i just came to check out this IHO rom and was wondering about the phone button thing and if that's the only issue. The image on the first page show a picture of a puppet face where the phone, apps, and globe thing for the internet was supposed to be. I'm rather used to the trio of touch buttons at the bottom so I'm wondering if that puppet face image is customizable?

    JerryScript- Many thanks for all the work you put into this amazing ROM! I'd just like to ask a question that has come up before here but didn't seem to have a good resolution. Is there any way to bump down the minimum in-call volume for the speakerphone? It looks like the slider will only go down so far and the volume at that point is wacky loud (the stock rom is pretty loud anyway, but this seems louder). I've tried all manner of 3rd party volume apps and adjusting things like the system volume don't seem to make a bit of difference.

    My apologies if this question has been answered and I've just missed it-

    That is just my setup for the dock. It is fully customizable with the included ADW Launcher. You can set it to 0-5 icons, change which apps are there, and change the icons themselves. In that screenshot, I have it set to one app, with the background turned off on the dock, and the icon set to one of my fav avatars.

    I'll just add that I realize the stock ROM has a minimum in call volume that you don't seem to be able to get below, so maybe it's a hardware thing- just wondering if there is a way to modify it...

    It seems to be a bug in the drivers, which we have never fully figured out. There are comments in the repository about it, which can be found on the wiki.

    New build is ready, Happy Holidays Everyone!

    BACKside-IHO-VM670-12212011.zip
    md5sum 88fb569ccd2b6062b375fd479470e59a

    GreenMachineTheme-12212011.zip

    Changes:
    --Fixed the date view in the status bar, now the notification icons will animate away when the date is visible, and animate back when as it fades away.
    --Added option to customize the overscroll color (cherry-picked from here), not sure how it will affect themes, needs testing
    --Synced with CM, new option to skip bootanimation may make boot times faster, fix to notification drop down swipe to dismiss feature makes it smoother

    Thanks to Danesh for the overscroll code, and as always thanks to Blarf, BobZhome, mrg666, Whyzor, bigsupersquid, LeslieAnn, kermikalelite, the CM and AOSP teams, and many many more.

    I hope everyone has Very Happy Holidays!

    Remove or replace the file /system/media/android_audio.mp3 (using a root capable file manager).

    Here's a screenshot of mine with the latest build (1221), showing the status bar dropdown with the date and weekday visible:

    umm sorry for double posting, but...

    do you see anything wrong with this picture?

    If you didn't see it, i'm talking about the search widget, it shows a magnifying glass instead of the "G" Google symbol.

    Not a big problem, but just bringing it to your attention. ^^

    EDIT: Also, for some reason, when I flashed this update I lost my google account that was on the phone. Idk what to do now xD.

    EDIT2: never mind, doing a full wipe solved those problems. Thanks again for the new update ^^
