    Pretty simple, right? Also, what are you looking to get out of a kernel, OCing, better battery life? Batter bettery life?

    Im using whatever is packed in Business Sense from NilsP

    My main focus is battery life, OC doesnt really impress me. My phone is fast enough.

    Currently running Chad's 2.6.32.26 (11/28/2010 release). I like it so far, but I haven't tested it with a fully/bump charged battery yet. Seems to be on par or slightly better than the latest stock HTC. Charges really fast and no issues with lag yet.

    Primary reason I swapped it out is for the alternate governors it provides and HAVS & Under Volting to help save some battery when its sleeping. I need all the battery life I can get without giving up the phone's snapiness.

    Should I take it that the DInc still needs to be bump charged, regardless of ROM or kernel?

    I am wanting to try Chad's kernal, but am afraid, it seems there are bugs with all of them.

    My own custom built one. Because I can have exactly what I want for voltage/clock options, available governors, compiled modules, etc. and nothing that I don't want.

    Ran king's kernels for a while, but his refusal to fix major bugs (even when pointed to the exact problem lines in the source code) pushed me away.
