    Im actually fairly new to rooting... but have already tried multiple ROMs and kernels, and i have become a fan of netarchy's work. I'm currently using his latest 4.1.9.1 kernel with HAVs
    But i havent tried this ROM, im currently running BakedSnacks and im trying to stick to one ROM and not flash another one if there's no real promise in it.
    So back to the original question, has anyone tried this ROM, and if so could u post some comments on it's battery life, performance, UI?

    Three days of battery rocks, but 1250 is a very middle of the pack Quadrant score running Froyo.

    Talk is cheap unless u post some screenies. 3+ days? you definitely are leaving your phone on top of ur kitchen counter. Use your phone. That what it was meant for.

    Like I said, iirc. Could be more could be less, I don't remember. I don't see the value of benchmarking and/or overclocking a phone.

    I said, my phone is a paper weight. Why would I post a screen shot of 50% Cell Standby and 50% Phone idle?

    I have seen you post this before about "using" your phone for what it was meant for. WTF do you care how I use my phone? I am using my phone for what I want to use it for, whether you agree with it or not, is irrelevant.

    Your post are irrelevant,who cares if ur phone can last 3+ days, that dont mean s*** for someone who's trying to find some real life usage input on a ROM.

    I've long concluded that quadrant benchmark scores are completely useless. I've tried the "quadrant slayer" builds with CM6 and Snap kernels which consistently gave me over 2300 on quadrant. Which is great and all, except my phone didn't appear to run any faster.

    You would think that if quadrant shows 2400, and normally it's 1200, I'd be running 2x faster. It's just a number, and apparently, one that is easily manipulated. So my hope is that that number is only used in STOCK configurations for comparisons. And even then, I'm not convinced it has much bearing on daily-usage performance.

    I agree with novox, I am running fresh 3.2, underclocked with netarchy kernel, and with decent use, i get roughly 24 hrs to charge and i use my phone, and when i sleep my dog likes to use it, so it gets used

    edit***
    and my benchmark varies between 1200-1300 depending on my juice settings and I think my phone is very quick and snappy and when im on wifi, its fast, so i really dont care about high benchmark when its normal day-to-day use that matters

    I'm right with you on that.

    To the OP...
    I am on Vaelpak right now, but was running burnt for a week before that. I had a very good experience. Battery/performance were equal or better than what I have tried elsewhere. UI for me was launcher pro. I do miss sense widgets...some. I just don't know which of these two I will end up with.

    I'm running Baked right now as well and Gameloft games runs smooth on it. Ofcourse I'm always looking for bigger and better. My Qadrant scores are about 1100 since I'm not really OC'd but phone is still smooth so I don't really rely on that score.

    I'm using netarchy's Burnt Droid 1.2 ROM and I love it. Tethering preinstalled, mostly stock sense UI, and UI feels blindingly fast (felt like a significant improvement over the stock ROM I was rocking previously).

    I'm using the setcpu app from the marketplace to overclock my Evo to 1.15GHz (which is enabled by the modified kernel included with this ROM). My quadrant score (not that it matters) is 1495. I have been using my phone more since I loaded this ROM, loading apps back on and just enjoying the extra responsive UI, so it can be difficult to tell if I'm seeing any battery life improvement. Not sure if I'm getting more battery life but I seem to be getting at least as good battery life, even with the device overclocked.

    Hope that helps.
