    I'm new to the rooting scene, and my goal was to try and achieve great battery life. In terms of the Droid Incredible that means 24+ hours with medium (read-Normal) usage with an HTC HD2 1500mah battery...here are some results...

    I am running the Stock Sense ROM with the Virtuous Rom Custom Kernel V2. I found this to be extremely stable with the benefit of being able to use setcpu profiles. Hydra Kernel undervolt was great as well but I wanted to be able to use setcpu profiles, which Hydra did not recommend. I also tried the Kings Kernel BFS 5 which was caused my system to be extremely slow, choppy, and lag at every screen.

    My setcpu profiles are pretty basic,
    Normal usage...998 max and 245 min, on demand
    Screen off...384 man and 245 min, on demand
    Charging/full...499 max and 245 min, conservative

    So I achieved my goals, 25 hours of time with 8% battery life left according to battery life app. 7 hours of use time which I think is pretty good...lots of txting, heavy email: gmail and exchange, real time email updates, facebook, twitter, nytimes news app, lots of web browsing and random googling, and of course 20 or so minutes of angry birds haha.

    I'm happy with the configuration I have but if anyone has any suggestions or tips I will greatly appreciate it.

    You seem to have done good. It is not about caring. We just don't have anything to say. Are you happy with what you have achieved?

    So when you say the stock Sense ROM, do you mean the Froyo 2.2 update and it is not a custom ROM. Actually what I'm asking is can you just add the Virtuous Rom Custom Kernel V2 without a custom ROM.

    Did you install it using ROM manager?

    Thanks

    im running skyraider sense 3.3.2 with king kernel #5
    my set cpu profiles are also similar to yours as is my usage (lots of texting, internet, gmail, some maps, and music)
    my up time is about 16 hours a day (7am -11pm)
    im seeing about 65% +/- battery left at the end of a day.

    SkyRaider 3.2.2
    Latest HTC Kernal
    .07 Radio
    Screen-off 245/245
    Juicedefender-BETA with default settings, 1/15 when screen off
    Seidio 3500
    Heavyyyy usage

    GPS off, unless im using it
    Screen brightness at 50%

    wifi at home and at work, unless i rome around the city

    almost 29hrs unplugged, 19hrs AWAKE

    and about 25%/10hrs remaining ....

    I use the hell outta my phone ... for an average user i can easily see this battery going a few days under the right conditions.

    I know these results are more about the battery and its slightly offtopic ... just thought id share, for anyone looking for better battery life.
