    Also it's better to wipe the battery stats when your phone is either completely dead or when it's fully charged. I did it when it was completely dead. Going on 36 hours since last un-plugged and it's still at 48%.

    I know a lot of people really like their choice to run Froyo, but, I take the other side of the fence on this one. I flashed Kaos v29 for a short while. Maneuvering through menus and apps was slower for me. I remained OC'd at 710mhz to give it fair comparison to my 2.1 ROM.

    As for the "features"...I am ok with not having the update all button for the market. I know that's a pretty sweet convenience to have with 2.2, but, not a huge necessity for me.

    Native A2SD is a nice feature though. After digging into things, it actually seems as though 2.2 creates a new partition on the SD card for each ROM installed. The one thing I didn't get to really test out was how much better/worse widgets were in 2.2 than my 2.1 w/ A2SD enabled.

    I am going to wait for the Samsung Fascinate to hit the shelves and just go with that. I am quite pleased with the way I have WW4.6 setup on my Eris, but, eventually this little ARM6 processor is just not going to cut it. Not even OC'd.

    Plugged it into the usb and powered it up into Recovery to wipe the stats. The usb (computer) charges it slowly compared to the wall charger, I forgot where I read it, but a slow drip can give longer use out of the battery.

    I looked briefly at Tazz's post, but couldn't catch why he went V8 -> 1.0 ; do you know why he changed the release numbering that way?

    I assume 1.0 is v10. Maybe he changed it because 1.0 sounds more like a complete ROM than v10 would.

    yeah i kinda scratched my head at that too. but the rom itself is great and has great speed right out of the box.

    i do miss the blue dialer from nonsensikal though.

    Cyanogen Tazz 1.0 is super fast. Battery life is sweet as well.

    Just FYI, Cyanogen Tazz is overclocked to 710 by default.

    I'm thinking of trying a Froyo ROM on my Eris (right now on xtr sense), however I have seen a few times where it says that you cannot get 2.2 on an Eris IF the SD card has been partitioned.

    Stupid Q ... how do I know if it's partitioned or not? I know I didn't do it on purpose, so if it is then it's that way because @ some point the phone did, or maybe when I got root I did .. I just don't know.

    If I DL a Froyo ROM onto my sdcard - will it tell me it can't work as soon as I go to Flash it?

    When I rooted my phone I did the easy w/o a pc method (not the one step).

    Thanks

    You would have done it on purpose. If you did not partition the SD card, it is not partitioned.

    You need a partitioned SD card to install applications on the SD card (apps2sd) for the 2.1 ROMs (like xtrSENSE.) If you did not set up apps2sd, you did not partition the card. You should be all set.

    I dont know how people complain about battery life when Im getting almost 2 days with a single charge using my phone like a phone regularly. Froyo is the sh**. Never going back to horrid 2.1

    Did a little experiment today with Kaos of the same named rom....Do we REALLY need to OC the 2.2 roms? I posed to Kaos that perhaps the cpu isn't the problem..but the memory. With autokiller now being ran wouldn't this solve the memory issue? He as well as I are now running on our eris kaosfroyo v31 using setcpu to UNDERclock back down to 528/245 with no noticeable performance decreases. Why OC if you don't have to? Now I do realize that every eris is different but give it a shot and post your results...I'm curious as to others results...other than the typical response of 'check me out I can oc to 803803083mhz' ;).

    I've 'underclocked' my KaosFroyo v30 rom to 608 with no noticeable difference in speed. Currently my phone has been off the charger for 11 hours and I've used 50% of the battery with quite a bit of phone usage. Looks like it will easily go another 6 hours until I plug it back in. To me that is completely acceptable battery life.
    That said, tomorrow I plan on slowing down to the stock 528 to see how the ROM reacts.
    BTW, I've got autokill set to 'strict'.

    I've tried running at 608 and 528 and it is noticeably slower for me. Well, I try it again and we'll see.
