Just an update for anyone interested. I have been running this ROM now for almost 1 week & still LOVE IT. I have tried a few different settings with the included "no frills cpu" & think I have found a nice balance to get good performance & batt life. All apps update fine & I am finding Link2sd to be great. I have installed plenty of stuff from market etc & still have around 80mb mem free. Phone is as stable as stock with much better performance.
