    Unreal. Phone is now just about perfect. Had some battery issues at first, rooted, rom'ed, installed 4.0.3 kernel (the 1.35 one). Left the house at noon with 100% power, it's now 8:41 pm and I have 84% left. lol.

    Installed the kernel from here

    [KERNEL][GSM/LTE][IML74K] "Apex" Kernel V2 Test (12/19/11) - RootzWiki

    and the rom from here

    [ROM][LTE][UPDATED GAPPS 12/20] RootzBoat 4.0.3 V4 - RootzWiki

    Not sure if it's ok to post links here, if not just edit please.

    I can't recommend installing these enough. A really noticeable difference. NO stuttering, no lag, great signal and great battery life. Everything works. I'm so happy I bought this phone.

    I'm...not sure. I'm not really all that knowledgeable when it comes to the details of what they put in their stuff (developers). I just go with what everyone says about the roms and kernels lol.

    This combo is just sick.

    Do you think this phone is for the user who don't root or modify the phone?
