    Im still on the HTC 17 kernel that came with it. Battery life seems to be good but can be a bit schitzophrenic as I can watch videos and get really long battery life but the phone can sit idle and use battery more quickly than desired. Ive tried to track down any app causing this but no luck just yet.

    I tried Ziggy's and the phone wouldnt boot, just get hung at the HTC screen. Might try that netarchy 4.2.1 this weekend.

    A lot of people are happy with the HTC 17 kernel. Just know that if you want to use setcpu, you're a bit limited.

    I've used the following so far:

    1) Ziggy's for myn's warm - it was unstable for me. It caused a few random reboots. I didn't keep it much after that, so I can't speak to battery life.

    2) Ziggy's 11/24 - Pretty smooth, but had random choppiness here and there. I also had some inexplicable battery drain like others have said. It actually dropped 8% during the night once, which is a lot for me.

    3) Kings BFS 12 - Nice and smooth, but random apps on the sdcard stopped working. I didn't give it more than 10 minutes.

    4) Netarchy 4.2.1 BFS More HAVS - BFS kernels have always made my battery drain a little faster, but usually were smoother than CFS. For whatever reason, the battery still drained faster, but it was kind of choppy

    Current) Netarchy 4.2.1 CFS More HAVS - great battery while sleeping. Drops only 1 - 3% in an 8 hour night. It can be choppy at times, so I have it overclocked to ~1.2 GHz to overcome that. Surprisingly, battery life isn't as bad as you'd think with an overclock like that. It's also very stable for me with absolutely no reboots. I might be lucky there, though. Not only do some people have issues with aggressive HAVS, but overclocking higher than ~1.15 GHz doesn't work for a lot of people. I have been getting about 24 hours with moderate usage, including a 7-8 hour night. I can get an entire weekend out of it if it sleeps most of the time.

    EDIT: Oh, and I'm only using setcpu to overclock. I have no profiles set; you shouldn't need them with the smartass governor and HAVS - it has been known to actually cause even worse battery when used with profiles.

    the question your asking cant be answered!!!

    each evo phone acts differently!!!

    sure a large group of phones may run better on netarchy

    but a smaller group might run insane on ziggy or htc

    it all depends on the phone! try each 1 out for a few days..install 1 and let it settle for 3 days and see and then try another 1!

    on my phone for rls4 ziggy and netarchy are head to head awesome for my ph!

    For what it's worth, I've found battery life and performance to be the best with Netarchy 4.2.1-bfs-more-havs. Although I have used King's #11 and it was very very good, too.

    Just testing a bunch of kernels to see which is the best match for my EVO running myn's 2.2 rls4.....I've tried kingz #10, 11, 12, ziggy's 1124, baked snacks #6, and am currently running kingz bfs #9....with trying all these, I've had mixed results, some being choppy and unstable, some being smooth as silk but no battery life. I've never tried the htc #17 kernel yet and have heard a lot of good things....I'm looking for a combination of stability, speed, smoothness, and most importantly longer battery life. It seems I haven't found it yet lol. Ima keep looking though. I'm open to suggestions on which kernel's to try. Thanks in advance all!
