    Has anyone had the opportunity to try ICX? I haven't seen much discussion about it at all. Would it be worth doing an SBF to .602 so I could take the .605 OTA just to flash it? Or can it be flashed over the .602 kernel?

    I am running it right now, and have been for a few days.

    I think it is pretty slick. Not really any serious bugs. It has this Agile lock screen which is pretty awesome. It has a default blue theme, but there are many others already out. I was also looking for thread or support forum. All other forums are spotty at best.

    I can say that battery life is stellar. I'm at 30% after 1 day, 17 hours, 6 mins. Equal to or better than the battery life on Liberty.

    I am also looking for a working FM radio app for this ROM, I can't get the other ones I have to install.

    Give it a try, you won't be disappointed, I also needed a reason to SBF just so I could get current (.605).

    It's weird, you would think there would be more publicity for something like that but I have been able to find almost NOTHING about it. And 30% after over a day? How is that possible? I get around 16 hours from mine right now running CM4DX GB and I thought that was incredible. I'll definitely have to give this a try

    Yeah I was going to try and run the battery all the way down, reset the bat stats, and see what it is really capable of, but it is taking forever to drain!!

    Here are some screens of the battery usage.

    Its down to 15% now, due to my recent moderately heavy usage. And apparently I was at 1 day, 11 hours, not 17. Still impressive nonetheless.

    According to the DMX tutorial the unique ICX launcher doesnt work completely on this build.

    But the battery life woudl definitely be worth it. also is that 30% with a reg or extended battery?

    So I tried it, was very nice but I'm back to CM7 now. The battery life was incredible and it was very fast but the launcher didn't work right all the time and I'm just not a huge blur fan. Still I'm looking forward to more ICS ROMs when it gets officially released

    I had something like 4 hours for 'screen on' time during that battery run. Not killer usage, but still impressive battery life. I was actually running the stock .605 for a few days before flashing this, and I could barely make it 18-20 hours with the same usage.

    Battery usage is stellar. I ran my phone with heavy usage about 36hours. It is very very difficult to drain this battery down. I literally started playing games just to see how long it would take to drain from 20% and it took forever. To me the rom is more so of a different theme rather than an entirely custom rom, yet battery life is immaculate on this rom.

    Right now I'm running Liquid 3.0 which has tons of customizations, yet battery life is nowhere as good. Underclockin I am able to get about 17-20 hours out of my battery tho. Usually left with about 30% left, off the charger from about 9:50am-12:00am.

    I just flashed this ROM and was expecting the battery to last longer but it actually seemed to discharge faster.

    Maybe I need to wipe the stats in Recovery?

    Yes. it was stated in the OP of ICX by sensei that you should charge, drain, charge and then wipe battery stats
