This thread made me go away and install FroydVillain 1.5.0 with FlyKernel 10a and OC FastBoot 653. I'm using LauncherPro (tried ADW but prefer LP). I was previously running Modaco 2.1 r4b3 with Sense as I've always stuck to Modaco roms before.

This is really fast! Even with Modaco roms I have had lag on my Hero, but no more! True, it's now overclocked to 653MHz but it's just constant smoothness. I haven't run in to any hint of lag yet. The boot times with OC FastBoot are noticeably quicker and nothing has wanted to FC on me yet. Everything I use seems to be working fine (GPS, Camera, Wifi, 3G... haven't tried BT yet).

I've only had it on for a day but I don't think I will be going back to Sense :-) Give it a try. I'm really impressed with how quick it is.

I'm 2 days on elelinux-1.8 and have to say that ROM is quick and smooth, but it drains my battery in 10-12 hours.
Thinking to try FroydVillain.

You could always set Screen off to 245/245 or 352/245

There seems to be an issue coming down from CM6 which causes some phones to have a horrible battery drain issue, both Elelinux1.8 and Froyd 1.5 have this issue on my phone, so be prepared to have an equal amount of drain on Froyd (BTW my pref is Froyd as it feels a little snappier on my phone).

Looking for people who have had the drain issue and then lost it ... to find the fix

I do not have a battery drain issue and that may be because I haven't come down from CM6 but straight from Stock T-Mobile G2 with Android 1.5.
I am currently down to 70% after 14 hrs up time with occasional use, checking e-mails, web browsing, txting and calls.

FROYO_2.2_elelinux_v1.8
Currently using to help with battery life:
Juice Defender (paid version)
Set CPU 691/176 Screen on, 352/176 screen off

Yeah not everyone is affected, it could be a hardware issue - another bad day at the htc factory or something else, but while the screen is on and being used the battery will drain at up-to 1%/minute - There are a few of us who are getting desperate to get it fixed, but no-one has an answer yet!

While the screen is off JuicePlotter reports a straight line so there's potential

Just throwing this in to the arena
Not tried it myself yet, not even too sure if it works, but hey what you got to lose.
(Although it states for Desire I think the same would apply to all phone batteries)

Well, after some days of using elelinux 1.8 battery life had increased. :lol:
I had recalibrated battery and it lives for ~36 hours.
Using flykernel-10a non-BFS, 372/652 scaling minmax, and not using screen-off profile at all.

I too have recently converted to the above Kernel and settings especially the not using screen-off profile at all.

Check out elelinux latest update FROYO_2.2_elelinux_v1.9
Maybe the issues mentioned might be resolved. I'm just about to Nandroid Back Up , Titanium Backup, APN Back UP and SD card backup and give it a try :lol:

Yep, I had checked that. Also, I had discovered Floyo0.8 ROM from erasmux, flykernel's developer. Will do some tests.
