    Ahh, gotcha. Well, luckily I have yet to see either. How is your battery life? I'm at about 10 hours up and have ~30% left. I have been using it a lot, but I expected more out of the battery to be honest

    Devs have stated there's more battery life to be gained yet.

    I've let it sit all night and still was in the 90's.

    Get Cpu Spy from Market and make sure you're getting deep sleep when you're not using it.

    You know, after I posted about battery I realized this was an Alpha build and I should just be happy with it. I'm sure that it'll get better as the releases continue to come out.

    Good idea about the CPU Spy. I will give it a try if I'm still seeing poor numbers after a full calibration.

    Have you OC your TP? Can it be done with dual boot installed or would I have to start over?

    Sorry for asking as these questions in here, but I figured it's better than starting a thread and you seem like the go to guy to ask around here

    With SetCPU you can OC it. I tried free apps on my wife's TP, but none of them seemed to survive a reboot and had to be enabled again.

    I'm at 192/1512. Could do faster (and have), but it seems plenty fast and seems a nice compromise between speed and battery life.

    Never even thought of setCPU. Glad I saved the apk on my Thunderbolt.

    What governor are you using? It looks like ondemandcl is the default. Have you experimented with any others?

    I'm still using the default. :D

    Be careful of "performance" tho. It sets your min speed to the same as max so it'll get warm real fast and could destroy your cpu if left on overnight.

    I've never had the SOD on mine, and I've figured out how to manage the wifi problems. Battery life has been acceptable, though I wouldn't complain if they manage to improve it.

    I'm really looking forward to ICS.

    ICS will be cool when it finally happens. Till then I've loaded an ICS launcher from the market on my TP. Looks sort of like ICS and, best of all, was free!

    Ondemand - Both CPU cores freely move up and down as needed.
    Ondemandtcl - prefers the use of CPU0 unless CPU1 is absolutely necessary for use, then it will kick in. otherwise it will remain idle
