    When I was stock, my barter would last all day. Still have 20% when I went to bed. Now I upgraded to 2.9 and my phone is dead before I get home from work. I really like 2.9, but seems useless if I don't get to play with it when I get off work. How can I extend my battery like. Display is already as low as it will go and my weather service only updates every 4 hours.

    New ec10 kernel is working wonders. Has low voltage for battery saving also soft key notifications.

    I went from 2.9 to 2.9. 2 and the battery life is way better. I'm going to do the battery wipe thing next. I'll let you know how that turns out.

    I think I got the kernel installed, how can I tell? What do roms and kernels do? What do I need to know so I don't brick my phone?

    I too would also like to know how to install the EC10 kernel. Is there a link for a "how to"? My battery fizzed out quick tonight. I only used it to text while at work. Was at 24% when I got to my car. Strange.
