    I am running virtuous 2.7 with kings kernel 3 everything works great but when I turn three phone on ever splash screen is up for just over a minute and than the boot animation takes about 90 plus seconds. I have tried current kernels, to no avail, any thoughts our just live with it?

    did you do a wipe before you loaded the rom? even if you did, try loading it up again and wiping the dalvik cache also (the first boot will take a long time). I'm running virtuous 2.6 and haven't had any boot issues. IMO it boots really fast, haven't tried 2.7 yet.

    The reason is Kings Kernel #3 which defaults to powersaver mode and therefore runs your phone at 245mhz while it boots. I installed the power-saving kernel version of 2.7 and so far I have been very happy with it.

    I wipe the delvic cache each time I load a new kernel, I have tried kings 3 and 4 and hydra 3 all load at roughly the same speed, but if I recall correctly the stock conservitive kernel loaded fine. A thought that just came across is, will it started to load quicker as more info is stored in the delvic cache? Meaning restart my phone a couple times?

    They are all going to load slow on first boot but King #3 loads slower than others all the time. This is going to be true even if you clear the dalvic cache. This is a known behavior due to the default speed of this particular kernel that is well known. If someone does not boot their phone often, I suppose this would not be a big deal. For me it was a problem. But we have options. Thank God for options.

    LOL. What options did you think I meant? I meant we have options ON ANDROID. Though I do suppose that other phone is an option of sorts as well.:rolleyes:

    Sheesh guys... I've had my Inc since pre-launch day 1 (April 28) and I think I've had to boot it maybe 9 or 10 times, and most of those had to do with when I rooted, or updated to Froyo. I have no idea how long it takes to boot, or if 2 minutes is good or bad.

    Nope... I'm apparently one of the few that has no problems with battery life. I guess I'm a "light user"... I charge overnight, every other night. BatteryLeft says about a 51 hour battery life between charges. Stock 1300 mAh battery, data always on, WiFi off (I think I've used WiFi about 3 times since I got my Inc), BUT... and this is the big one... datawise, I'm syncing nothing other than 4 email accounts once per hour and Google Contacts once per day. No need to sync more often for me.
