    READ THIS..--> I'm so sorry guys, ok so after i made the nandroid backup i changed the name.. it will still work you just need to rename the file so there are no spaces in the folder name..

    ex

    Succulent Desire v-1.5 CHANGE TO SD1.5

    you can change the name to whatever you want, but if you add to many letters then you will get another error code and need to change the name again..

    First boot will take a little longer because system is Deodexed... after the boot animation spells at droid at the end your screen will be black for some time, this is ok, its because the bootanimation isn't set to repeat, so your screen will just stay black while your phone sets up the system.. every other boot will only take as long as it took the bootanimation to play.. so it boots up pretty quick..​

    I liked "The Goods v1.5" as a 2.0.1 ROM, it showed promise. I'm going to test this one out tonight since its an ESE53 base ROM and your first of this type :D.

    As of now i can't give you that good of an answer, i've spent most of the day building this ROM and tweaking it around and have rebooted and restored and backed up many many times, along with plently of internet use, so most of the day while not in class or on the phone or something its been plugged in.. my battery did drop from 70% - 50% for the 2 hours i ran with it today, but i had music playing, and used GPS to track speed a little..

    [Im pretty sure you've all heard by now, but just in case you didn't VZW is releasing android 2.1 ESE53 build on March 18th, just a heads up for anyone that didn't know)

    im telling you because this ROM is ESE53 based, and the update from VZW is also ESE53 based, so my guess would be that normal everyday battery use should be fairly good..

    o wow, im sorry, ok so after i made the nandroid backup i changed the name.. it will still work you just need to rename the file so there are no spaces in the folder name..

    ex

    Succulent Desire v-1.5 CHANGE TO SD1.5

    you can change the name to whatever you want, but if you add to many letters then you will get another error code and need to change the name again..

    So today I decided to give everything a break and used my droid normally, no reboots or anything, about 20 min of web browseing, and 1 hour of GPS/music while running.. and my battery is at 40% and its been out of the charger since 6 am.. so about 10.5 hours and I used GPS for an hour, I think that's pretty good, but u can be the judge.. ;)
