    Just FYI, Chingy installed a cool feature on the ROM, hold down the power button and them hit the home key while the power button is pushed, and you will take a screen shot.
    Ya... I had heard about this, but it was explained to me to push both at the same time, which kept sending me back to the home screen... but the way you explained it works a LOT better... Thx!!! Now I can remove ShootMe.

    This ROM is awesome. For the wifi popping up issue...just go into wifi settings->Menu->Advanced and check "Never auto turn on Wi-Fi"

    Been running a few days with this and only one problem I've had. Can't play some of my podcast videos (all mp4). Strange that some play and some say it's not supported, they all work fine in stock. Anyone got any recommendations for a third party player I should install to get around this issue?

    Flashed this Rom, so far so good. I have noticed the wifi issue when going into the market. So far its the only issue i have noticed.
    There should be a option on pop up that says to never turn wifi on... or something like that and once you click it all is good..

    I will, but I'm still running my Wifi battery test.

    Again this wifi battery test was with Wifi ON the entire time.... using BETA VI and Chingy's (1.46.00.0704w) radio. One short call, a couple different app downloads from the Market, what I'd call a normal day except I did not play any games... and my device was on all night, but in Silent mode, and alarm set and it woke me up this morning with a few emails and SMS messages.

    64% Battery life after 24 hours... I'll buy that for a dollar!!!
    I guess the LTE test will have to wait since I don't see any reason to plug it back in and charge it yet.

    From states you just have phone on but you are not using it because only the standard stock apps are showing in list... Are these shots of a phone you are using regularly..

    thanks all

    here's hoping this thing is as great with battery life as everyone is claiming it to be.

    was originally having problems with the Wifi issue that everyone else was encountering. one thing i overlooked (stupid me) was to turn wifi OFF in addition to the "menu>settings>wireless/networks>wifi setup>advanced>never turn auto on" option.
    i never turned OFF wifi and kept having the problem.
    hope this helps

    If you had read my postings you would know exactly how I was using my Thunderbolt... regular use... emails, SMS messages, at least one phone call, downloading apps from the Market, facebook, Google+, Gas Buddy, etc, etc, etc... I just have not played any games... currently I've been up 1day, 7hrs, 40mins, and have 52% battery life... I'm just giving you the screen shot of my battery... sorry if you don't trust what you see... I'll be giving another screen shot later today... maybe the battery screen only shows the top 6 things that take up battery time.

    Surprised that none of the other apps hasn't showed in the battery usage list, usually if I use any app for even for a minute it would show.... No prob just trying to see the pattern you are following to get those numbers,.

    Another thing I don't see is if you are using stock battery or extended?

    Apps usually show up on the list if it's a significant part of the battery use... but spread that over a full day... and how much would that actually be??? Not much!!!

    I've done a lot of testing of different ROMs... including Liquid Thunderbread, but I did forget to add that it is the stock battery... and that is what has surprised me most that I'm getting this kind of battery life from this combination.

    Ok... this is the last post of my battery life test for the day, or more like a full day and a half...
    Stock battery... Gingeritis 3D Beta VI... Chingy's (1.46.00.0704w) radio.

    1day, 12hrs.... 44% battery life still left... I'm fairly sure I could go all the way til tomorrow morning, but I want it fully charged in the morning.



    What I'd call standard use for the day... in this case a day and half, which really started at 6:40am local yesterday through 6:40pm today. Using the Market to download a few apps and updates... phone calls (mostly short ones)... emails and SMS messages... a few apps like Gas Buddy, limited use of Facebook and Google+... Beautiful Widget's Weather updated every time I wake my device.

    I flashed this ROM last night and I'm loving it so far. Not getting as good of batter life as fatboy, but the battery is definitely better than BAMF 1.8. I'm 13 hours in and still at 50% with moderate use. Sent about 30 texts, a few short phone calls, checking twitter and facebook, and a few games of words with friends.

    Only complaint I have is that sometimes when the phone rings, the screen doesn't light up to show me who is calling.

    Oh, So I went from full charge to 10% in 8h 10m and display was on for 2h 27min, I had about 50m of voice calls. All on 3g. Oh I used the music player for about 30 min. Does this seem normal for you guys?

    EDIT: I started using darker color backgrounds and only apps I have running are Google Apps. Only have 2 non Google Apps that rarely get used.

    I'm going on 16hrs since I took mine off the charger. 2hrs of screen time. I use 3G while I'm at work, since I don't get great service there and then WiFi while I'm at home. I'm trying to get my battery down to 0 since I'm doing the battery calibration tonight.

    My use today has been about 25-30 mins of talk time (20 mins of that was using 4G), some Words with Friends, checking Facebook and Twitter, and sent about 30-35 texts. Right now, I'm sitting at 17% after 16hrs, I'll take that.

    Right and he's got about 20 more hours with the same amount of use. I've got 2hrs of display on time is 16hrs. He had less than that for 36hrs.
