    Ok guys, on my Inspire, I love everything about it. I have one question though, I am really ignorant when it comes to Android Os and what all it can do. Was at work with a buddy and he had a cyanogen mod on his G2, looked like gingerbread. Anyone know if i can get this on the Inspire? and if so how? I would love to know. If someone can post directions it would be greatly appreciated. Also, I would wanna know what I would be losing/gaining with root.

    In here is a link to my thread that also has a link to XDA that will guide you through the root/ROM process. It does take some time and patiences though.

    Absolutely. The one thing that blew me away today was my battery life. Typically I unplug at 6:30am. By the time I leave work at 5pm after about 20 minutes in phone calls, 100-150 texts and about an hour of web browsing, I am at 40-45%.

    Today was my first day with the ROM and I had the same usage and I'm typing this now at 6pm at 67% absolutely awesome.

    I swear, ill never understand why Developers and manufacturers wont take advantage of the guys out here doing what they do. I mean if they can raise battery life and give a better user interface, why cant the big guys

    I kind of like the underground developers idea. It keeps big companies on their toes and slowly push forward.

    Not a bother at all. I'm happy to have more people taking the step.

    I actually don't have the link to the cyanogenmod rom because im using a different one.

    I'm running Android Revolution HD here, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=985363

    Thanks to mattbe213 for showing me this!
