    Two questions.

    Is there a guide on upgrading the recovery file. I'm running RA-evo-v1.7.0.2 right now?

    Also, I've flashed to cm6 and the new snap kernel. Everytime my evo reboots I have to clear the caches and reflash the kernel to get it working. Is there a solution for this?

    You could download Rom Manager from the market...and upgrade that way. Also the app is amazing.

    From XDA, this is the method I used:

    Code (Text):
    1. Copy recovery-RA-evo-v1.8.0.img to the root of your sdcard
    2. start the terminal app or launch adb
    3. su(press enter)
    4. flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-evo-v1.8.0.img(press enter)
    5. reboot recovery(press enter)

    I actually used the terminal emulator app to do this... On the first try it gave me a space error and deleted my old recovery. Second try, same method, worked like a charm.

    Thanks guys, I'll update you on my status.

    Edit: you guys are awesome! I updated my recovery using the terminal app. I'm also going to use the new snap 8.2 kernel

    I really like CM6, but up to now (for me), CM6 with or without Snap has been a battery vampire. How's your battery life with that combo and setup?

    The battery is quite good so far. Today's the first day I've put it to the test. Unplugged since 9:30 am and it is now 2:30 so 5 hours so far with moderate use and its at 80%. Save to say its been holding up well.

    As much as I love CM6 and the snaps I wasn't getting good battery life with the latest CM6 ROM and 8.2nhavs800. Yes my phone loves being UV. So I went with Fresh 3.2 and netarchys-toast Kernel 4.1.9 so far 15hrs unplugged with almost 4hrs of use with some tether and heavy web browsing and I'm @ 20%.

    I must agree that cm6 cripples the battery. The consensus is that snap 7.4 was the most stable kernel.
