Alright guys, after the OTA update last week my battery went to crap. It wasn't great before but would usually get me through the day (18-20 hours) with decent use and after that I would usually have 20-30% left. After the update I would need to plug it in after 12 hours or so. At any rate, that started me on the quest to get more battery life. I did the pull the battery, hold the power button trick as well as install juice defender today. After 16 hours I had over 50% left which is a huge improvement. This got me interested in what more could be done if rooted. Long story short, rooted tonight using the steps listed in the "WIP" thread. Worked like a charm. Now I'm looking at custom ROM's. Seems that the SyndicateROM Frozen is a popular choice and plenty stable. Watching the video I'm sure I can install it but have one question that I can't find the answer for. Will flashing the ROM reset my phone? As in will I lose my apps and such? Or will that all be there when I'm done. And secondly, is there a better ROM for me? I'm connected to wifi all day at work. I mainly use the phone for basics, calls, lots of texts/emails, facebook, few small apps, etc. etc. When not at work I depend on my Jawbone for all calls and such. I use the GPS with google maps and navigation pretty often. I've been content with the speed of the phone but more and smoother is always better. My main goal is a stable phone that won't give me issues or quirks with as strong of battery life as I can get. If I can get 20ish hours of battery with moderate to heavy use I'd be thrilled. Thanks in advance guys. Lots of good info on here.
