    I'm looking for a great ROM with the best battery life. That's the main thing for me. Based on your experiences, which is the ROM with the best battery life for D3?

    Thanks.

    Monster rom has done a great job for me and so has the SD3. Right now I'm running 13thangel and the battery is not to great but is a fast and stable rom. Hope this helped.

    I personally think SteelDroid has the best battery life and performance. I like Liberty as well, however, though performance is great on it and it's themed very nicely the battery life is horrendous.

    I'm on Liberty as well, and I can confirm that after my initial flash, my battery life was horrible. But after a day or two of letting the ROM settle, I've seen fantastic battery life (19+ hours with moderate usage). I'll hold off on CM7 until Hash get the audio fully functional, but from what I hear, he may already have an alpha CM9 build ready to go, so I may skip CM7 entirely. :)

    CyanogenMod7 once the stable version comes out. It'll be the first AOSP ROM for the Droid 3.

    CyanogenMod7 I am running it right now its fantastic almost everything works except the camera app witch is no big deal because you can use any from the market. Really fast and snappy, the best so far, thanks to Hashcode!! p.s if you get it use the ICS Cyanogenmod theme the from the market also a ADW Ics theme It almost looks like ICS 4.0 :p

    Using Maverick ROM now, because of the new build, but I don't like the GUI. Also used the leaked 5.7.894 (debloated manually), but I like the power controls in the pull down menu.
    Edit: and the battery icon.

    Currently still letting 13th Angel settle, but so far it's been great. I've used Liberty, Maverick, and SD3, and so far, SD3 has had the best battery life for me. I'm loving 13th Angel, however, and I think I'll stick with it.

    I had a terrible time with battery *and* GUI *and* many other things in Liberty, however. I (personally) would recommend avoiding it until it gets an update.

    I'm working on Steel Droid 4.0, which should smooth out some things, and hopefully improve battery a bit more. I have a very demanding life right now, so I work on it when I can, which is limited almost exclusively to the bathroom. Lol. (It won't be this bad forever. Lol)

    Maverick ROM is worth checking out :p *shameless plug* I am running the latest build on that with v6 supercharger tweaks done and it runs about 18 hours with normal to heavy usage...

    buy $20 extended battery from eBay....then should be able to make it through full day heavy use no matter what the from. Best $20 I spent since had any Droid.Droid 1 battery life seemed best with custom roms for sure.

    @ChevyCam94: I think Steel Droid 5.1 is quite good. But still has some problems, all of them also are important functions.

    For example:

    1. Call function: after used headphone, call function got problem, incoming and outgoing call get lost voice/audio.

    2. 3G (data) function: sometime loses connection.

    3. Font: Fonts used for SMS function were not enough like Stock rom.

    Hope you will fix ALL as soon as possible

    Well I can answer this for you, Steel Droid 10 is based off AOKP and the problems 1 and 2 is a ISC issue throughout all the the ISC builds with locked bootloaders. the 3rd issue is a personal taste issue this is a custom rom and meant to be custom so it looks the way it should according to the builders taste. Its a simple task to go and get rom toolbox or absolute system to change your fonts to whatever your taste call for. So if your waiting for Chevy to fix issue 1 and 2 I suggest following AOKP to see what the changelogs are. All in all this is a great rom with insane battery life compared to all the other ISC builds, whatever tweaks he's done works very well considering the locked bootloader with a stock kernal.

    New D3 update coming. Android Central Community Search | Android Central've been hoping beyond hope that we'd get ICS from moto, but I think its about time to give up that hope, and am now looking for roms. I assume I should wait a bit to let devs go through the update thats rolling out? Which ROM do ya'll think is most likely to use this most recent update first?

    Most likely MavROM. They are very good at keeping up to date with the builds. I don't think Chevy is working on gingerbread anymore.

    Edited because I was irritable and prematurely posted something stupid.

    I think liberty has been giving me better battery life than mavrom, which are the two I use heavily until they get camera working for ics, but it all depends on what you use your phone for. I use mine all day for internet research, and I can normally get about 8 or 9 hours before I die...but I have a car charger so I keep it plugged In anyways in the car and listen to music while driving which slows recharge time.
