    I just got my Epic a few days ago and noticed the horrible battery life. I was warned by the Sprint representatives, but I didn't think it would be this bad.

    Anyways, after searching and looking around, I found out that the best solution is to root it and get rid of the all the bloatware that came pre-installed.

    Now my question is, what ROM should I pick? I like the look of the device and most of the features. I just want most of these stupid pre-installed apps removed.

    I still want the GPS and the TouchWiz drop down thing is pretty nice.

    All I'm really looking for is longer battery life with the least amount of features removed. I need it to be stable as well of course.

    So, any suggestions on what ROM would be good for me?

    I see. So which ones should I remove? As in which ones are the most useless and biggest battery hogs?

    Also, is there a way to tether without using a ROM?

    Yes, you can tether with just root access. Use Juice Defender for better battery life. Set display brightness to auto.

    I have not noticed better battery life by just flashing a rom.
