    I ran it all day yesterday, charged twice through the day, then charged overnight. Within the first 2 hrs it was down to about 80 which granted is not that bad. However 2.2 on my phone wont go below 80 for at least an hour more.
    I gave it a shot figuring i was playing a lot yesterday, but by 11 am est i switched back to 2.2 and my batt is now holding strong
    Trust me i definitely want the newest best gingersnap there is and imo 2.2 is where its at right now

    To each his own though

    I have been running 2.3 for about 2 days now. I used Link2SD, though you could use other program, to freeze (as opposed to deleting at this time) the following apps:
    Browser.apk (I use UCbrowser)
    DeskClock.apk
    Email.apk
    FavoriteContactsWidget.apk
    Protips.apk
    LatinImeTutorial.apk
    HIME.apk (I use ICS keyboard with no issues)
    GenieWidget.apk
    PhotoFrameWidget.apk
    RichNote.apk
    RichnoteWidget.apk
    SNS.apk
    Superuser.apk (I use SuperSU)
    Talk.apk
    UserDictionaryProvider.apk (I use ICS keyboard user dictionary)
    Wi-FiCast.apk

    Items listed are ones I have frozen (disabled). I understand some users may want these, however, they do not affect my use. I have been running today with moderate use.

    Ok. This one is NOT based on GingerDX. I found that the one on the blog is based on Gin DX, and the one on thread is CM7. The rom is now 98MB, without new kernel included&being ported yet(Lets find out what the actual one is), and I got permission from EarthnFire to use his kernel in the rom. Hopefully this has better battery life. I'm going to leave SNS in this one, see how it going, but if it drains battery, delete it. I play on adding things still as well.

    How are you porting the ROM are you using Android-Kitchen to do so, or some other program?

    New Rom is uploading. Rom is 95MB's, and I made a SNS( Social Networking Service? ) zip, along with a new updated Gapps by me. It will also have a modded build prop for Beats, and Sony's Xlound, and so on.

    Okay.

    Just for kicks I unpacked the boot.img and noticed that the lowmemorykill files are not written, this could also be part of the problem with battery usage. The OM kernel has lowmemonykill treaks built in, but the file needs to be written in order for the kernel to know when to kill running programs.

    You can also try removing some of the languages within the apk's this well help with the size of the ROM, though you will have to resign the apk's the in the ROM with the right key.

    You just made that sound soooooo easy!!!!!! I never understand how to unpack a booot.img. I don't understand what they talk about and what to use to do it.

    I added the kernel by using the update script to flash the kernel when flashing the rom. Does that make the Lowmemorykill files written?

    It's part of the boot.img, I can go through it two and add what needs to be add for you.

    edit: Okay so the lowmemorykiller is there, it is just set to low for our phones.

    Code:
    # Define the memory thresholds at which the above process classes will
    # be killed.  These numbers are in pages (4k).
        setprop ro.FOREGROUND_APP_MEM 2048

    # Write value must be consistent with the above properties.
    # Note that the driver only supports 6 slots, so we have combined some of

    Remove the 01mvdalvik script from the /system/etc/init.d folder. The script moves the data/dalvik-cache to the cache partition which is a small partition and fills up quickly.

    Do you have a Partition? If so, that could be somewhat of the problem...

    I'd do Earthnfire's advice first.


    Did you do a full wipe?



    I have to work on a root fix now. I want to get the root working at boot. It says " Su binary not found ".
    From past experience, I know that when I add superuser and the Bin file manually, it results in a fail root. :/

    No partition. No full wipe. I just cleared cache and dalvik cache. Can I just root again with Ginger break?
