    Bumblebee, Harminia, and Reborn have great battery life. It is most likely an app you installed that drained your battery. Poor signal reception will do that too. You should get two days with moderate use at a minimum.

    ive been having great luck with rodimus (sorry if i butchered the name). the quadrant tests comes to 735 with a over clock (cant remember exact number around the 700m). 1 full charge lasts me around 12 hours. i txt, and game alot on my phone and yet it holds on till the end of the day WITH the over clock.

    I keep getting this when I click on the recoveries and roms. "MediaWiki requires PHP 5.0.0 or higher. You are running PHP 4.4.9. "

    Anyone know what i should do to get it working?

    After reading a bunch of threads here (some with contradicting & confusing info), it seems that xionia_cwma_12518.4_virgin is the recommended recovery for both Harmonia & IHO CM7 ROMs (what I'm interested in).

    I just have a question, since it's not mentioned in the first post here. Should we NOT be using the later version of xionia_cwma_ v1.2518.6 since that seems like it's for the Optimus S, or will it work the same, just the buttons are swapped?

    UPDATE: I went with clockworkmod recovery since it likely does a more thorough wipe of OV's partitions compared to Xionia which was based on Sprint Optimus S's partitions. I believe Harmonia ROM requires Xionia recovery's scripting feature though.

    So here's basically what I would suggest for converting a stock OV ROM to latest Gingerbread CM7, given the more recent tools available now:

    1. Use GingerBreak to root, install & run the .apk. Phone will reboot if successful. Check with terminal emulator 'su' cmd to make sure you're rooted after reboot.
    2. In app market, download & install ROM Manager.
    3. In ROM Manager, install Clockworkmod Recovery (suggested for CM7 since it likely does more thorough wiping of OV's partitions)
    4. Boot into clockworkmod recovery mode, backup original ROM. then wipe data & cache, then in advanced menu, format everything except /sdcard.
    5. Flash new IHO/Backside ROM zip (most recent & updated CM7 ROM for OV as of today).
    6. Flash google apps.zip
    6. Reboot into normal mode.

    You have to flash xionia cwma or another recovery that supports amend scripting.

    I'm liking this little phone, but so far, the modding hasn't been quite as smooth as I would like.

    Had a little trouble, but got it rooted, now I have Xionia CWMA recovery on it and I've tried flashing a couple ROMs (rodimus and bumblebee and bumblebee kernel) and everything seems fine in recovery, but when I go to boot the system, I only end up with a blank screen. It seems the phone works, I get the haptic feedback when I slide the unlocker and when I press the right areas from there. I can even turn the phone off and back on again, but all I have is a blank screen.

    Does anyone have any idea where I should start trying to fix this?

    You need a ROM dated after September 1

    Yeah, you have one of the newer OV's, they have slight hardware and software changes that have been fixed with ROMs dated after Sept 1st, but any ROM before then won't work. Rodimus, Bumblebee, etc. haven't been updated in ages, but if you're looking for a new Froyo ROM, I would suggest Harmonia, it's been updated recently. You can also try Gingerbread 2.3.x if u want, the I.H.O. Thread will point you in the right direction...
