    I'm considering reverting back to my carrier's Rom which was originally on it when I first got the phone, due to the excessive battery drain with the Villain 5.3.

    Do I need to load the generic 1.5 Rom before I do that? And will reverting unroot the phone?

    Another consideration though. Could it be using the apps2sd facility which is causing the extra battery drain?

    I think I'be just figured out the problem. WiFi was on, but I didn't realise without the widget that was on the stock Rom.

    I couldn't get away with a widget that wasn't "visual" either.

    Do a search in Market for "curvefish" ... they do free widgets that are cool little icons that have coloured switches to instantly show whats on and whats not.

    OMG :eek: That is awesome Jaffa, never knew that existed! I have only had Villain5.2 a few days, and there is so much new in 2.1. Nice one!

    Goodbye curvefish widgets, hello stock power widget :D

    Aren't the WiFi widgets the same on 1.5 and 2.1?

    They weren't for me. I used to have icons (widgets?) that were grey/black in colour and visually switched. I couldn't find them in Villain5.2, but I thought that was a 2.1 improvement ... the new icons were colourful, but they took you to the "settings", not turned stuff on/off.

    The Android Power widget is exactly what I wanted in the first place. If it existed in 1.5, I never knew it was there :rolleyes::D
