    What is the fastest and most minimal rom out for the tbolt right now?
    My main concern is battery life. I want the rom that gives me the MOST out of my battery hog of a phone. Thanks for the info in advance.

    Newly rooted and ready to get out of this stock htc garbage.

    I personally prefer the aosp roms... Cm7.2, liquid smooth 3.2 or thundershed 1.5. I have the extended battery and I get about a day or so out of mine with moderate use. I also use juice defender and easy battery saver. Set you phone not to auto sync Nd to disable data when your phone is not in use. I also set my display to auto brightness. I also remove programs that I don't use or want so they aren't starting up and running, using precious battery life. But that's me. Hope it helps.

    I have read it sometimes reboots or shuts off phone for no reason. Please let us know if that happens.

    First choice: Thundershed 1.6, IMO kernel, and webkit acceleration.

    Liquid is cool too, but I prefer thundershed.

    ***UPDATED 5-22-12***GingerBreadRock V3.2 & V3.3B (2.11.605.19 Leak) - Rooted & Debloated - Thunderbolt Development - RootzWiki

    My preference, stock HTC kernel. I was pretty impressed with battery life, got a full day's use (medium to heavy usage).

    I'm running Thundershed v1. 6, with Imo lean minimalistic184 6.2.1(extreme #2 with speedtweak) 184mhz-1408mhz interactivex, and 605.9 radios, with rezound batt and I get almost 10hrs (30% batt remaining) with heavy use, 15hrs (48% batt remaining) with moderate use. Lots of liquid, and skyraider folks switching to Tshed with it's stock kernel or imo 6.1 / 6.2... I've done my homework, asked a ton of questions, read a gigazillion threads, this setup is equal to or superior to the best available, for performance with great batt life.

    I am running i-Kream and love it. I have Juice Defender and with moderate use, I can get a work day out of it. If I am at an amusement park and only check it occassionally, I can get 12+ hours....again, that is only checking FB or email or texting on occassion.

    I have ran many ROMS (Eternity, all the BAMF's, Gingeritis, Liquid, CM7, Thundershed, Zeus, THunderstick, etc)....and they all are worthy ROMS for sure.....that is the beauty of ROOTING....you can try on a few ROMS (like a pair of shoes)....find what works for you.

    If you want a plain Vanilla ROM....then CM7 or Thuindershed is the way to go. If you like a SENSE'd ROM....then all the above ones you can't go wrong with!

    I am running thunderstick bare bones,... nice clean sense based ROM so your verizon stuff works, but it has the resource heavy rosie stripped out and uses go launcher which I really started to like with a ICS theme from using Thundershed(another awesome ROM), thou Shed is CM7 based...both ROMs can be found on rootzwiki, and thunderstick is on rom manager...

    I'm digging this ROM, but do you know if there's a way to add home screens? Right now I only have 3, and would love to have 5. Thanks.

    You should get 5 right out of the box. If not, look for a setting in your Apps menu and then you might be able to add from there. I think i-Kream cdan do that. I am currently running Zeus...but am thinking of going back to i-Kream.


    If you want more, then you would have to go to a launcher like GO Launcher (which I have installed). You can load up as many launchers as you want and then also download "Home Switcher" and then you can switch between whatever ones you have installed. I have SENSE (of course), Go Launcher, Launcher Pro, SPB Shell.

    That's odd that I only had 3. I'll have to flash it again and try your suggestion. And thanks for the home switcher suggestion; definitely gonna check that out.

    By the way, what's your favorite Sense 3.0 ROM? I've tried Bamf Forever (had issues with the market), Liquid Smooth Gingersense (no Google navigation), and I tend to use ThunderStick Full Blown now because the only bugs I've encountered are minor and easily overcome. Thanks.

    In order of my preference based on battery life and overall performance....
    1. Thundershed 1.6
    2. Skyraider Zeus 1.3
    3. Gingeritis (not 3D)

    I have an extended battery and use 2x battery app. I easily get over a day with moderate to heavy use. (plus in my opinion it really doesnt matter if we get over a day because we pretty much all plug in when we go to bed at night

    I have tried them all and even though we cant get a legit ICS rom yet, I LOVE this phone and plan on keeping it for a while.

    I finally had some free time to switch back to this ROM, and you were right. I was able to add home screens, and I now have 7. Thanks.

    Mine would have to be:

    1. I-Kream_RLS (seems to be the most stable). The only thing I don't like about it, is that it is based off the ".19" ROM which takes away the LINKING feature in emails....thanks APPLE for sueing HTC for that

    2. Eternity (Latest Build) - I like this one, but it got a little wonky on me so I reflashed to something else. I might go back when I get bored.

    3. Anything from BAMF

    I am bored at work, so during lunch I am going outside of the box and trying some ROMS I have never tried (BULLY, SHIFT and LiquidSMooth).

    One of my favs and DD as well... Currently giving sfKCM7 a spin. So far this AOSP ROM is smooth and everything works.

    Bully desensed is a great and smooth from. I've tried just about all of em out there and have loved the set up on this rom. I used the 1.6 version with go launcher and liked it but then someone put out an add on to it stripping the go launcher and a few more bloat apps, some of which I put back on, but used hololauncher which is a lot lighter and smoother.
