    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

    That happens when the floor voltage on the Kernel is to low for ur phone to handle. Which 8.2 did u flashed.

    Hey I'm running 875 stable and loving it. 1350mV@1.19Ghz, I also have setcpu set to max 1190 MHz min 245 with other profiles to conserve energy.

    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.
