    Hello everyone,

    I am knew to the android I like it thus far and just finished rooting it.

    What is my next step?

    My brother talked about ROMs and Kernels, what should I be doing now?

    I want to get rid of all the junk that comes pre-loaded onto the phone (NASCAR, KINDLE, etc), increase my battery life, and add tethering, can someone direct me on what I should do next and elaborate on the terms for me?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I can remain with the stock ROM or Kernel or get a custom one...maybe?


    Any help would be great.

    I'm honestly getting lower quadrant scores with this ROM...? It feels fast but benchmark scores seem to disagree.

    And now I want to go back to stock however my recovery isn't working for some reason... I think it got corrupt somehow.

    I load up recovery, select a previously created recovery, flash it, and then I get stuck on the HTC boot screen and it cycles...???

    Do I need a copy of the stock ROM?

    Your getting lower Quadrant scores because that ROM is using the stock Kernel. If you flash a custom kernel like Bcnices [​IMG] [Kernel] [GPL] Sense 2.6.32.21 OC/UV 1.51GHZ (CFS-Smartass-TUN) or [​IMG] [KERNEL] 2011-03-21 - x99kernel OC/UV 1.2/1.8GHz SmartAss - for Sense ROMs you should see a big difference in speed. I believe both run at 1.2 GHZ but can be overclocked and are really speedy.

    I already flashed bcnice's 1.5ghz kernel and it's slower than the stock ROM...? maybe I'm doing something wrong...?

    I'm getting scores around 1730... where as I was getting scores of over 2000 with the stock ROM.

    Update:
    After talking with the developer it was brought to my attention that the benchmark scores are to be taken with a grain of salt and don't exactly test the phone in areas involved with everyday use.

    Conclusion:
    MikShift is QUICK!
