    ***** ROM Reviews *****

    Review by YankeeDudeL
    Initial Setup:
    LFY remains one of the fastest booting ROMs, taking only about a minute to bootup. Was happy to see my fav animation back, but that's just a matter of preference. Market synced up pretty fast at just over 15 mins and restoring 97 apps out of around 110. This would be the second most a Froyo ROM has ever restored.

    Appearance:
    It's pretty much a stock ROM until you flash one of the included themes. You've seen the screenshots, not much else to report there. I do like that Beautiful Widgets has available skins and LauncherPro has a couple dock images. Would like to see a Weather Widget Donate skin available, as most of us have one or the other.

    Performance and Goodies:
    There's not a lot in terms of extras, which probably doesn't matter too much with most of you. So when comparing to ROMs that do, it's got to compensate with tremendous speed, which this ROM has done in all builds. This ROM, however does have some hiccups.

    I scored pretty high on Quadrant, netting a high of 1626 at 1.1GHz, and consistently in the high 1500s. Generally, the ROM seems pretty fluid and scrolls beautifully, but then there's times where it seems to lag. Apps don't always open and close beautifully, and screen transitions can seem stiff occasionally. Sure, I've got some GPU intensive widgets and such, but even with very little installed the same problem persists. Reading through the comments, I'm apparently not alone.

    It feels like there's something causing it more than just being a "slow" ROM. Sometimes when you're scrolling through your apps, or a webpage, it's just butter. But other times, it seems like it's just sticking. Like when you first wake it up, it kinda takes a few seconds to get rolling. And when surfing the net, it seems to take a few seconds longer than it should. And it really doesn't like performing two tasks at once. Getting a text while surfing the net cause horrible lag and the same thing happened while multitasking in call.

    That's another thing, calls take a second before they let you respond. You won't be able to wake your Droid or answer for more than a few seconds. This is receiving or making calls. As a matter of fact, while trying to call in a radio station for one of their daily contests, the process took so long that I knew by the time I actually completed the call that it was already too late.

    App and System Function:
    Most things seem to be in order, haven't noticed any apps that didn't work, but there were a couple issues that did occur. I did have a FC while viewing the Market, and Swype seems to lag a lot, and consistently with this ROM. Even the stock keyboard seemed a lil sluggish.

    Battery and the GPU seemed to stay pretty cool for the most part. Even while really putting this ROM through the ringer, the GPU never went past 104F and the battery never above 98F.

    Overall battery life, though, is rather unimpressive. With heavy use, I drained the battery completely in 4 hours after flashing (I don't start testing until completely charged). After normal use, I was down to about 40% after 8 hours, but after less than an hour later of heavier use it dropped to 15%.

    Overview:
    I'm kinda disappointed in this version. While it's not a bad ROM, I was hoping for increased performance that just wasn't there. It sounded like they really had this optimized, and the benches I've gotten confirm that. But real world application tells a diff tale. It might be one of the most fluid ROMs I've ever tried when it's not lagging. Problem is, it lags quite often.

    For me, it seems that every build that ends in an odd number (1.1, 1.3, 1.5) seem to not do well, while the even numbered ones perform near outstanding. So while this ROM left me disheartened, I very much look forward to seeing if this trend continues with the next build. And understanding that this was the first ROM that Liquid collaborated with slayher, perhaps they'll have everything worked out for the next go round.

    I'm simultaneously excited and somewhat saddened. I spent all weekend playing with tweaks to get LFY1.41 exactly where I wanted it and now 1.5 is out...I feel like a smack addict.

    I just gotta keep comin' back!

    Now I have to find time to flash all this delicious LFY goodness!

    You install off SD like you would the rom but no wiping. I prefer to use recovery tho...seems cleaner to me.

    so what's the difference with the custom slayher kernels compared to the original ones?
  19. GirLuvsDroid

    GirLuvsDroid Well-Known Member

    You need Terminal Emulator (free in the market). Once you have it, you type:

    su
    scriptname

    where "scriptname" is the name of the script you want to run (from the OP), like blockads, godmode, soundoff, etc.
  20. GirLuvsDroid

    These slayher kernels are a result of a collaboration between Liquid and slayher. They fix Goggles AND (drum roll) have compcache enabled by default.

    Just so you know, the framework has changed a bit, so the 1.4 themes won't work with 1.5.
  22. gotwillk

    gotwillk Well-Known Member

    ahh cool! what's compcache though? :)
  23. Sparky977

    Sparky977 Well-Known Member

    Understandable. So far its working ok, sans the BnB theme of course. Have I needlessly left a bunch of pieces of the BnB them that can't be used cluttering up the works? Would I be smart to do a fresh install? Or count my blessings that its working fine?

    1.4 is great and finally got my phone just where I wanted it. Time to take the plunge really going to miss WMd if the 1.4 themes won't work, just have to wait for Stew. Liquid, Slayher and Stew you all ROCK.
