    So what are the features of this version?
    Hopefully it will help with the battery drain, I'm losing 1% every two minutes :/
    I hope that's just the battery giving up.

    Definitely excited to test this out. Is there any way to automatically set the network type to GSM/CDMA automatically instead of having to set that after each restart?

    If not no big deal but just figured I'd ask.

    Thanks

    In the testing menu (*#*#4636#*#*) then go into phone info...it's one of the fixes for the 50% bug that's been posted a few places here.

    50% bug is 100% reporting issue and has 0% effect on real world conditions.

    As for Terminal Velocity its just a mod, stripped down, reskinned. You could do this to your own Velocity 1.1 install using the scripts and toolkit, this will just already have things removed.

    No offense, but I don't get it. What I mean is: One could just remove those 'apps removed' with Titanium Backup, add the Elegant Gingerbread theme in terminal emulator and just have the exact same thing. Am I right or wrong?

    If you read the description its a lite/themed version of velocity. Nobody is playing it up to sound like a brand new rom.

    You know what you not alone. I feel like my batt does drain quite fast in 1.1. But it might just seem faster because we see the increments in 1%.
