    I tried 2.0 beta 6 for a few hours tonight but didn't find it as snappy as 1.8 with my ROM. There was a definite lag for me. :(

    I've been very happy with beta2 so far. Just as quick as 1.8 and with a couple of fun tweaks.

    I've not bothered with these v2 betas since beta 1 that erased my boot animation and reinstalled cwm 5 so I'll be sitting these out until an official v2 release rolls out.

    I might even go back to nimph for the time being now that I'm on dlevrom

    v2.0 proper is now available.
    Testing now...

    On revolution on Siyah 1.8, overnight drain would be 1% - 2%
    On DlevROM it would be 4% - 5%

    I'll see what the drain is on DlevROM with Siyah 2.0 tonight.....

    DlevROM drained faster than MoDaCo GR1 using 1.8rc2. Back to MCR_GR1 with v2.0rc2 last night and after 19h+ still have 65% capacity. Will install the v2.0 release later once I've slept (currently "overseeing" the Galaxy Nexus release event discussion, for my sins)

    My battery drained 7% last night with Siyah 2.0. And this is with minimal wakelocks, so not sure exactly how its going down as much as this.
    I'll be giving the new CheckROM/Revolution KI8 ROM a go when this comes out over the next day or so, and I'm tempted to either stick to nimph or Siyah 1.8

    I'll see how 2.0 performs over the next day or so before making my mind up.

    v2.0 comes with CWM recovery v5.0.2.6
    This worries me slightly as this was considered unstable a week or so ago. Does anyone know if its problems have been fixed?
    The one great plus point of this CWM version is its ability to install a .zip from external sd card.

    They must have been, as it's backed up and restored successfully for me several times now. As previous stables used v.4.0.x.x I take it that the inclusion of v5.0.x.x means it's considered 'release ready'.

    That's a function of the recovery and not the app, and my #1 reason for wanting v5.0.x.x on the handset. :)

    My overnight battery stats :)

    0% drain over 7h 37mins, I didn't even think this was possible? I thought Ninphetamine was good :D

    you must have left your charger plugged in butty! :D

    but seriously, i dont put my phone in flight mode overnight, and keep wifi on (but set to sleep)
    But this is how I always leave it overnight, but mine was poor in comparison to v1.8 :(
