    Hey guys I'm usually over in the Moto Droid forum but my friend has a Vibrant. She says the battery life stinks, after about 200 texts she says about half the battery is gone.
    I noticed after I rooted and was using a rom it increased my battery life greatly whilst increasing speed. (ChevyNo1's Simply Stunning 4.9)

    What do you guys recommend for something that increases battery life and increases or does not hinder performance?

    Thanks! :)

    For battery life, Eugene's Ginger Clone w/super IO is the way to go. It may not be the newest, fastest, etc. but it will hold on to a charge like nothing else for vibrant.

    Trigger has always been nice, but trigger is a 2.2 ROM, and once you break them in, I have found the JS7 2.2.1 ROMs are MUCH faster, with comparable battery life. I highly suggest Atriarc. That ROM is smokin fast, and with the overstock kernel 1.5(undervolted) it sips battery ever so nicely.

    What kind of new are you looking for? There are so many ROMs for Vibrant it could take weeks to try them all out, so what is it you really want out of your phone?

    Hmmm, good question. I think the one thing I would look for is support in case I have a problem , which I often do. Always something simple though.

    Ummm , I use my phone more for music, movies and games than I do for a phone. What would you recommend for something like that. Not too worried about battery life . have extra battery and charger at work, home and car.

    Thanks .

    I would use a 2.2.1 ROM with MIUI music on it. You will really enjoy the media experience on that. Cruise around on XDA for a night and read through all the features. 2.2.1 is the way to go in that respect.
