------- HOW TO: IMPROVE BATTERY LIFE -------
All of this is based on the way I use the phone.
1º Always use 2G networks because for using Whatsapp, mail, etc it's enough.
- Settings - Networks - Mobile Networks - (Actiivate) Use only 2G Networks.
2º I always update manually the Market, Mail or Contacts.
- Account Settings - (Deactivate) Data reference.
3º Desactivate GPS on the notification bar.
4º Desactivate screen animations and use automatic brightness.
5º I use the processor at normal speed and minimum of 245Mhz.
6º Use Battery Calibrator from Market (following the instructions) and battery at 100%.
----- Installation tutorial. -----Go to ClockWorkMod, do Wipe data/factory reset, Wipe cache, then advanced -> Wipe Dalvik Cache and if battery is at 100% do Wipe Battery Status, if we don't have ext3 partition let's do it: Advanced, partition SD Card, select 512MB or 1GB and Swap of 128MB or 256MB (Remember to copy after this the ROM on your SD card: reboot recovery, connect the usb to your PC, go to mounts and storage->usb storage, copy the rom and then unmount), after doing that, select the rom .zip to install and wait till it's finished. Then do reboot system now and wait until the phone boots.
Important: after finishing the installation, open NoFrills CPU, select your desired maximum speed (I use it at 883Mhz) and put as Governor: Smartass2 and IO: sio. (You will get great performance with long battery life).
When mobile is ready and in launcherpro homescreen, press menu->preferences->restore backup->yes. (This is an Optimization for the Launcher).
