    I have noticed that GB offers awesome battery life.

    Desmadre.Sr, welcome to the forums! I would suggest creating a new thread dealing with the issues you're having with your phone; you may get a better response that way. However, how long ago did you install it? What upgrade path did you use? Have you tried wiping the battery stats in clockwork recovery?

    Is zombie-stomped compatible with .596. I know it was for .595 but didn't know he updated it yet.

    Just did some research. Its not ready for .596. Only Hateraid and Lexlite are. That might be one of your problems there. You are mixing a .596 system with .595 framework.

    I see. I only flashed it because on another forum, of course pure speculation, someone mentioned that it should not affect it. After the flash though it does say "System version 4.5.595.MB810.Verizon.en.US". Thank you for your insight.

    I love google music!

    Takes some time to upload your music depending on your upload speed of your internet...

    Please let us know what your settings are and what your usage is. I didn't use my phone for the better part of 8 hours, and it only dipped a few % points as expected, but generally speaking on a normal day, it feels like a leech is sucking my battery dry! I have the extended battery and it's draining like a snaked toilet! :eek: I have NEVER been able to go more than 12-16 hours treading very lightly, and I can guarantee I don't use it as much as people on here.
