    People please quit using taskkiller apps on your phone it drains the battery even worse than the phone on its own. I'm using a custom ROM from this forum and using a app called autokiller which uses the built in android system to free up memory but it has presets to can choose to make the the built in management work faster I'm getting like 24 to 30 hours on a single charge WITHOUT A TASKKILLER APP!

    I don't have atk setup to kill tasks automatically in the background. I know its not good for the phone. I only use it to close certain apps manually as needed. Some apps don't allow my phone to sleep correctly. It doesn't even load at startup on my phone. You should be careful with autokiller as it can be just as bad as a task killer if set too aggressive.

    Give me a proven result please. I'm currently on my 2nd day with no charge. I'll most likely be able to make it through the day without charging it.

    Same ^^ I only manually kill apps when needed but it auto starts. I have auto kill on my wifes phone but that's b/c she doesn't understand that everything keeps running after you exit out and her phone bogs down and I have to hear her cry. Auto kill = save face.

    You might want to check out an app called Autostarts. It allows you to disable apps from automatically starting up when the phone boots. Its similar to msconfig.

    There is an option for it to auto start. Doesn't bug me b/c I use it often enough and usually have about 100mb of ram free.

    How are you liking Panda Home? I noticed it's more of a resource hog & slower than ADW.

    trav2001 Well-Known Member

    It is, but I run 1.5 on my phone and ADW i don't believe is available for it. But it's FAR, FAR better than the BH2's stock home screen(s).

    because I can't get my BH2 flashed to anything else. I run windows 7 and I can't get the drivers installed to be able to flash my phone. I've tried all the tricks that everyone on this forum has given me to try and still not able to do so. Sooo, I'm done with messing it. There is nothing wrong with 1.5 and my phone does everything I need. So I just leave it alone.

    Tell T-Mobile if you have insurance that something is wrong with your phone and they will send you a replacement with 1.6 on the new phone and just send your old one back to them. P.S. make sure you take out your old SD Card before sending back your old phone..

    because that would be me telling a lie. and I don't do that. plus i could care less about having anything newer. my phone works perfectly fine for me.

    T-mobile sends out the refurbs with 1.5 now due to the 1.6 pull.

    I don't know what your talking about I did just what I said and T-Mobile sent me a new phone with the stock 1.6 on the phone, trust me I've done this like 3 times already.

    yea i flash my bh2 with win7 too. has no problem but that was probably because i got the 32 bit instead of the 64 when i upgraded
