    Hello,

    When I heard the official 2.1 ROM was being but put, I finally went for it and rooted and upgraded to VillianROMS 5.4. Its good but as with other 2.1 ROMS the battery life isn't great, even with Juice Defender/Ultimate Juice installed.

    I've no idea how the ROMS are coded and optimized and put together so i don't know if battery life in the future will be improved? Can someone throw some light on it please? I'm considering downgrading to a 1.5 ROM in the meantime.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, they should get better when they have the official 2.1 kernel to use, the current one is meant to be a bit crap. Or someone creates a new one.

    Well, Stickman's SenseHERO was recently updated from v2.1 to 2.2 (no, not Android 2.2, this is the SenseHERO's release number!). Looks like a big jump in speed and battery consumption so there's hope... ;).

    I posted about this in another thread, but tweaking one of the system settings from 'WCDMA preferred' to GSM seems to have improved my battery life a bit on 5.3.

    Think I'm gonna have to try sensehero 2.2 now though.
