I think the battery life is bad. mine mow lastes 3 days. Before (2.1European Open) it were 5days. Significant is the drain goes very rapid from 100% to 25%. Then its holds this value for a long time (1.5 days) in my case.
I swiped my battery stats when it was @ 100%, rebootet and my battery was at 95%. strange. But anyway it could be worse.
So the Bugs I encountered were:
-Proflies are still in russian Language-> I translated them or deleted them and created new ones
-in the Dev Tools the Glaxy & Gras tests dont work and the app crashes
-the buttons for WiFi, Bluetoth, GPS and 2G/3G vanish when you change the theme->reboot the phone
Another Bug I have since 1.6 is when I dont have reception or foreign providers (normal is Vodafone.de, when I'm at home its sometimes O2.cz) the phone freezes over night and I have to pull out the battery for a short time + reboot. But that is not related to 2.3.4 . I will build a Log-App to see when and why this occurs.
Turning off the USB Debugging when it's not needed will have a noticeable impact on battery life, I get an extra 2 days with it turned off. (Never thought it used that much juice... lol)
Profiles are in Russian due to the build.prop file in system folder being set to Russian; variables for English default are shown below.
"ro.product.locale.region=AU" <-- Change this to your country code if you wish.
The theme "issue" is just a bit of a glitch with having the themes set via APK instead of embedding themselves directly into the system (it is done via APK to prevent the need of root access).
As for the tools, they just weren't made for the GT540 and really should have been removed from this ported version.
If you uninstall the Android default keyboard you will find a sizable amount of extra free RAM, it's too "bulky" for a low memory device.
I am currently in the process of creating a more usable port of this ROM (which I am basing off this one, since the bulk has already been done here.). I have already created an update.zip file containing the LG IME keyboard for this device (since I find it far more usable than any other... especially the default Android one, and the GO one is just too laggy) -- I'll get around to uploading it soon ;-)
If anyone is interested in giving it a test in a few days, pop me a message on here and I'll send you the link when I feel it's ready for more wide testing. (I'm currently giving it bit of a bash test to check stability).
Few additional features will include:
Default language set to English, so all prompts and profiles will be displayed in English. (instead of having a bit of a mix n' match as we have now)
Re-integration of boot sound. (droid boot sound included, with the option of using a personal mp3 placed as "/data/local/PowerOn.mp3")
Default to EXT4 support for SD-ext partition (as the new clockwork mod partitions into ext4, therefore having a ext3 default mount is redundant).
Removal of the Tool packs as they are not intended for the GT540, and as such I don't believe it's entirely safe to leave them in place.
(And I'd prefer that "my" ROM be safe for all user levels -- by "my" I mean the one I've modified lol)
Replacement of the Android Keyboard with the LG IME one.
And a few other minor tweaks to improve stability and performance.
