Question Just in need of some clarification

So I'm currently running the ZVD speed mod and just had a few questions.
Thank you in advance

-Is any Esteem able to run any of the ZVD ZVC or ZVB rom or am I tied down by the stock version of my phone? (ZVD)
-Any reccomendations for a Rom that has Excellent battery life, I typically get about 8 hours.

And I think thats it! Thanks for reading!

Yes I'm pretty sure any Esteem is able to run ZVB/C/D. And I believe the best ROM for battery life (based on ZVD) is #2. Version 2.5.4 I've heard has been the best, but that's for you to decide...

The rom/kernel you flash HAS to be compatible with the firmware version. You will have many issues flashing things made for other versions.
+1 on ROM #2 for ZVD

Thanks a lot you guys!
Currently I am downloading #2 and the bluetooth fix
Lets see how it goes. Oh and just one more quick question, should I buy Rom toolbox Pro? It seems to have some awesome features, but I'm worried some won't work on my phone and I wouldn't want to buy an incomplete app, or an app that destroys my phone.

I just use the lite free version to remove ads. If you do go pro just be careful and make a backup prior to trying anything

I'll be sure to do that : D. And so far #2 has been great, although the battery life is basically unchanged but i'll keep it for a week as a sort of test. Thanks again!

Stock ROM with Stock Kernel, every other ROM I try slows down my esteem after like a week or two and battery is not-so great, but it might just be my Esteem. But judging by the look of it I think #2 has a good battery life.
