ive always liked liberty. all this trouble i went through was in order to get the newest kernel/radio because i was still having some data drop issues every once in a while. not nearly as bad as it used to be with stock (not sure if rom is even supposed to matter for this, but it sure seems a lot like it.)
battery is pretty amazing (after using battery calibration app)
and then there are lots of other things that are pretty great, but after like six months, ive decided to try eclipse. installing now.
