    This was originally a mod for the OG DInc but someone made a flashable zip for us! I don't yet know how well it works, but I figured I ought to share it here since I hadn't seen any chatter about it.

    As always, don't forget to thank the ones responsible for this!

    So you've had 12 hours to test it. What do you think? ;)

    My battery has only gone down 3% with heavy usage. Skype video call for 15 minutes, several emails written and read, picture taking, voice calls, and one big lie.

    :evil:

    Today isn't a fair one to test. I was at work all day and depending on where in the hospital I spend my time and how much I'm using it, the battery can last all day or only a few hours.

    Maybe after a few days I'll have an idea, but my battery life is generally pretty stellar already. I can't imagine it really getting much better.

    If it ends up being similar to knocking on wood or throwing salt over your shoulder, I'll tell you all about how well it works and how to grow your hair back thicker than ever just by eating foods you already have around your house.

    I've made every effort to use my phone in an average way and amount today. I have done quite a bit of streaming Pandora, phone calls, web browsing, texting, playing with and installing apps on 3g and wifi about half each and after 15 hours on the nose I have an even 40% battery remaining.
    Not bad.
    Ten fold improvement? No. But I do believe I see some improvement.
    I work all weekend and work is not a fair place to test, but I'll try to report again next week.
