This new release (1/12/2010) is significant because it brings about a few significant changes: 1) Default over/underclock of 600MHz when under load, and only 125MHz when idle. The lower idle frequency should make up for the higher battery usage at load. 2) Wifi tethering is now enabled by default, as the new overclock kernel has the files needed for it. 3) The new kernel also allocates an additional 65MB of space for a swap file, making the overall speed greatly improved. For these advantages, there are a couple of things 'broken': 1) Only auto brightness works (you cannot set your own brightness level) 2) No WEP encryption for the wireless tether (this is inherent in the wifi tether program, not the ROM) I've been using this for a couple of hours now, and so far, so good. Everything is still optimized a la birdman, and the additional swap memory allows for speedier transitions between memory hogging applications (i.e. from gallery to browser to home screen, etc). I won't be able to gauge the battery life, obviously, until I've had some more time with it. Still, overall, it seems speedier than both the original Sholes.info 1.0 RC, and birdman's V4, which before this, IMO, was the best ROM available. Anyways, the ROM can be found both at alldroid and at sholes.info. I won't be providing any links. Other adventurous flashers can use this thread to discuss this ROM. This may be the last great 2.0.1/2.1 ROM, as now that 2.1 is open sourced, I expect developers to flock towards that.
