    i know answers and suggestions are in many threads i just dont have the head to look around for it right now

    well ive been bouncing back and forth between roms because since the new beast came out i had bad battery life on it it was super quick though and i really want to use it since its been the rom ive always used

    any ideas on what i can do to help with battery life

    i like using setcpu so i have control over it and i can see whats happening and i need profiles because of the way i use my phone

    Try one of the P3 kernels. I haven't yet but I'm thinking about it and you can let me know how it goes. :p

    Seriously though I've heard that those kernels run cool and stable, I just haven't gotten around to trying them out. There is a link somewhere in this forum to get your hands on them. Just remember that Pete's auto CPU scaling won't work with a different kernel, as well as a couple of other things, but I can't remember of the top of my head.

    Post impressions if you try it out!

    Get juice defender. It shuts 3g off when your phone is suspended. Saves a lot of battery life.

    try not changing the stock settings. leave setcpu at 600 max and 250 min (runs fast enough and cool enough for me). I got about 40 hours out of it. check the picture below to see.
