    I'm running it now. Substantial increase in battery life. Whatever bloat was draining the crap out of my battery is now gone. And its just smoother. I'm sitting in jury duty now and I've been playing angry birds and word feud for an hour and lost 4 percent battery. Stable too.

    I'm running it now, love the ROM, no issues whatsoever, however, battery life is about the same for me, but I was not bad before, I believe I have configured my device fairly well to prolong batttery life.

    Since this thread said "tried" the perfect storm.
    I want to know if there are any problems going back to .6
    Since this rom is based off of the newer unreleased .9
    In other words have you tried the perfect storm and went back to stock, debloated rom virus rom or unrooted with any problems.

    yeah this is the best rom right now. Cm7 doesn't look that great to me. What's so great about it? The perfect storm looked like stock so I flashed back. I hate stock anything, including my truck :D

    Dude the ROM hasn't even been out for a week, why does the dev need to update it? I ran all of Chiny's ROMs on the Inc and I assure you he pumps out updates and all are better than the previous version. He has released a good amount of Mods already, btw.

    Virus is a Release Candidate, not a beta and not an official release that's why it's already been updated and will continue to be. Perfect Storm is an official release and doesn't need constant tweaks and revisions.

    I respect people's opinions, but your comment is ignorant. If you gave an actual reason why Virus is better than Perfect Storm then great, but to say one is better than the other because it's been updated is foolish.

    For what it's worth, I'm currently running Virus as well.

    Becuase going through the post he was talking about adding all these things. When he "wakes up". And other things. He always said he would make a .zip for people and hasnt yet so I got tired of it

    EDIT:I just like the look of virus rom to. I dont like the stock look. Anyways I saw the post here he made the zips.

    for the hardware. why root your phone in the first place if you dont want to chagne it? ive rooted 3 htc phones now,and 1 original droid. htc phones are IMO less of a pain to mod.

    also the TB is the only 4.3" screen,4g phone on verizons network right now.

    so if i want a verizon phone im comfortable modding,i want 4g and a 4.3" screen,and i dont want sense what do you suggest,i buy good sir?? :thinking: :rolleyes:

    i like the look of the virus rom,too.however, i am also a fan of chingys roms,and i bet perfect storm is good. incredibly re-engineered was a sense rom,but it dint look stock... it had a good look and an awsome feel. its in fact,the only sense rom i ever really liked and went back to now and then.

    i like virus,but i dont root my phone to only change the rom once! ill still give this one a shot in a day or 2. or mebbe tomorow :p
