    Yea, but the improved battery drain is a big minus for this :(

    So far so good. I see improvement in the speed of my wifi connection (65Mbs @ 2.4Ghz) no significant battery drain issues.

    24 hours battery life - moderate usage sms, emails, phone calls, media player on the train: 3G, Wifi, Live wallpaper and 3 widgets on homescreen enabled.

    Highly recommended mod!!

    cheers :)
