    Hello everyone! I've had my Bionic for a couple months now and it's a wonderful phone. Though, I'm a bit dissatisfied with the battery life. I currently have ICS on it, unrooted. (It was rooted before though on GB and it updated to ICS, which I think un-rooted it.) Anyways, I'm looking for just a normal ROM that optimizes data connectivity and battery life.

    Any suggestions?

    Additionally, how hard is it to install a ROM? Never done it before. Can I just learn as I go, or is it pretty complicated?

    Thank you.

    The GPS quick settings error was a deal breaker with Icarus for me. But I do a lot of traveling and my phone is my navigation system.

    Personally I like Eclipse. It's got a themer working on custom themes and Nitro built the new Eclipse on .246 as opposed to most of the roms built around .247.

    Yeah the droidrazr.com seems to be the most active site for Bionic ROMs. I am running the JB CNA ROM its pretty damn nice. Its great that these people are still developing for the phone, makes waiting for the new phones so much easier.
