    I've had it for about a week now, and hoped it would get better, but it's just been atrocious. Much much worse than my stock rom ever was. I'm out of ideas. Does anybody know the latest radio version that CM will work with? They say "install the latest radios" but I have no clue where/what radios those are. Hopefully that will be something to help me.

    I was also getting bad life and then switched to fresh. I think it had to do with me having the Nova screen instead of the Epson. There were some compatibility issues that I read about. I can't find the thread right now, but that might be the case for you.

    When I was on stock I didn't have to worry about the battery life, but on CM6 RC1 it's awful, I do everything I can to save the battery and it still almost dies before I get home from work.

    I'm on CM6 RC1 with Snap v4.1 Kernel (v4 was really unstable for me)

    I run Fresh 3.1 and disabled all syncs except weather and get insane battery life. I leave wifi connected when I'm at home. Usually around 40 hours per charge with light-moderate usage. Might wanna try a different rom and see what you think.

    Nah, read what he said, he uses Wifi at home, I do the same thing and I'm on fresh .02 still and I get about 40 hours battery when using wifi, really saves the battery life.

    Also on fresh, split between WiFi and 3G depending on where I am (I use Y5). Never have a battery issue. GPS, BT always on.
