    Im very confused. I flashed Fresh onto my Evo and the first day or 2 the battery life was great! I was wrong. so wrong.
    Any recommendations to longer battery life? things to flash?
    I dont really use my phone much except to txt a couple of people and i only play games on it at night when i cant sleep. I do play music sometimes, but its usually plugged in while i do so. I calibrated the battery like some forums said? That the battery's ion weren't completely charged? idk. WHAT SHOULD I DO!

    Which version did you flash? Have you checked partial wake usage in Spare parts to see if something is staying awake?

    Have you installed any apps in the last couple of days that might be keeping your phone awake?

    How bad is bad? Do you turn off data when not using data?

    Diff kernel?

    what exactly is "great" battery life?

    there are several things you can easily adjust to help battery life...

    screen timeout length
    background brightness
    live wallpapers
    ...etc, to just name a few

    I flashed the newest version. the 3.5 i believe. And i havent changed the kernel at all. Should i do that? My screen timeout is 15 seconds, lowest light, i do have my phone connected to wifi though. Great battery life as in it lasted me most of the day while i txted 2 or 3 people about half the time. my wallpaper is black, AND i have installed advanced task killer, startup mangaer, and a game or 2

    Make sure your wifi is not set to never sleep. Did this start after installing any of the above apps? Task killers are not usually necessary on these phones as androidOS does a pretty good job of app control.

    yeah try uninstalling the task killer and see if that improves the battery life at all.

    If he is on Fresh 3.5 which he said, the kernel change won't hurt that. He would just need to make sure to use a Sense kernel.

    Latest is like 4.0.0.5 or something

    If that's the case a kernel will white screen your cam and video..

    you have to flash the gapps file. here is the file Downloading GApps.... just flash it like you would with any rom. there is no need to wipe everything however.
