    Ok, I finally flashed the more freedom kernel over my og 3D beta setup. It's only been 4 hours, but it seems my piece is smoother, it wakes up easier.
    Like I said maybe it's the placebo, maybe not. Bottom line, I like it so far. Why did I wait so long to flash it?

    It's the placebo. I've always wanted to say that, was going to say it regardless of your post.

    But, I guess I'll have to try this kernel next time on a sense rom.

    Basically means its all in his head. Like when a mom thinks her kid is sick and tells the kid he is sick he actually ends up getting sick, then the doctor prescribes sugar pills or water to cure the illness.

    Fair enough but you would be surprised how many people do not know what that means.

    I could have typed plucenta. (spelled wrong) If you know what that is you more than likely have kids!

    Back on topic.
    I don't think its a placebo, its holding up better today with battery. 8 hours with 78% remaining, plus set CPU overclocked a little. Over an hour awake time. Not bad.

    I tried chopSUEY today and I lost 30% of my battery life in less than 2 hours. I'm gonna try goldenmonkey before flashing back one of the freedom kernels

    so how would you rate 11:40 hours up time, with 3:10 hours awake time and 52% battery?

    extended battery i got from here, 3500MAH Evo Battery (Extended Life Battery) - GorillaGadgets.com

    and the Synergy Eternity build, I read about here

    with a later version of Chop suey, and setcpu clocked to just under 1gig with screen off profile of 128/245

    Edit: i am on the Interactive Governor. Time in state in setcpu info was 85% for 245.

    Well I can say one thing I started turning off my mobile data when Im not using my phone and my battery life went up dramatically. Granted when i do use it you notice the battery ticking away, but I can have my phone with juice for the whole day. I do have It over clocked and DO NOT have a screen off profile on setcpu, Im running smartass governor, which to my understanding does sit for you. BTw I too am running this kernal... :D

    so how does that work? Besides well, I mean. :)

    Do you not get any emails until you turn mobile data back on, or what?

    Calls and texts still make it through as usual, correct?

    I have yet to try the infamous chop suey, got to one of these days.

    I like this kernel so far. Easily last one day with moderate to heavy useage. Over an hour on the phone, about an hour and 45 with awake time. Lots of gmail, texts, web access corporate email. I'm happy. :D

    Yes, it sounds great! all of that activity and still making it through the day going strong.

    I don't really feel like I used it that much today, but just noticed that screen was set to never turn off. Brightness wasn't that high though.

    On a good day(one where I don't have classes in the basement and get no recption for a few hours) I was able to get 24 hours (roughly equivalent to yours) with moderate usage on the stock battery running mikg2.5 and more freedom.

    I have an extended battery, but ever since i rooted it only gets used when I'm almost dead and then a random trip somewhere pops up where I know I wont be able to get a charge.

    Oh yes, should have mentioned, i am using juice defender, as well. Signal in my bldg bites too. It is deadly w/o juice defender.

    I have a nandroid set up with mik 2.53 and morefreedom and I think it is great, as well, plus, it has the latest voice search patch, so that function actually works.

    i like mik3db1 with golden monkey1.1 as well, same on voice patch. I actually went back to the stock battery with it, but larger battery fits in my hand better, so I don't mind using it.

    Another thing, stock cover comes off a lot easier if you have to pull the battery. :p It is more flexible.

    I don't know what he would do to 'finish' 3dB1, it seems fine now, but I wish he would put out the final version, just so I could see what it looks like!

    There are a lot of new devices comming out right now, so you will see a lot of new ports and experiments. Great time to own an og evo. Once the new phones have been out for a hot minute, the roms will get finished, more refined.
    Aamikam will get this stuff done eventually, school comes first. Let him get settled into the new semester schedule, get some strange, and he'll be back on track. :D
