    I am not an expert by any means. but you really just have to try out different kernels and ROMs to see what works best for you.

    i believe smartass governors save battery the best, but i could be wrong.

    and i hate to say this, because it shouldn't be necessary to do this to enjoy a phone for a full day, but OEM or even extended (slim) batteries are $10 on amazon. keep one handy, and dont worry about saving battery....thats my motto.

    ^^^Yes the Sense UI provided by HTC is a known battery hog. Removing it should help save some battery.

    Yeah but can you have the HTC Ring lockscreen on the AOSP ROMs? I have loaded Liquids and CM but miss 'Da Ring' (my prrrrecious...lol)

    I was going to attempt to get it applied on CM7 when I have some time..but as of yet hadn't tried...

    @mbk I like the ring too! But at the same time I want to have some battery too. I thought having my phone rooted would do something but i still have a plain Jane phone and I'm not too happy about it

    A gurly theme would make any ROM gurly... just gotta see if there is one out there for any of the ROMs you like...I'm not sure since I've only had my Bolt for a week or so...

    But I haven't yet gotten a full day's battery life with any ROM, still searching for one that provides better..

    Themes must be for the specific ROMs, they cannot be interchanged with one another...so whichever theme you found needs to go with the ROM it was intended for

    I did just try out a new app called Agile Lock, and it is basically the Sense Ring lockscreen....just doesn't come with the weather animation backgrounds, but you can set the lockscreen wallpaper to any custom one...or if you have something like Beautiful Widgets then you can set their animated weather live wallpaper with that Agile lock...just FYI since many HTC users have been trying to get the Ring Lockscreen onto CM7 and the like...;)
