    It was a little dicey there for a second or two (which was my fault) but she's good to go.

    Awesome news Jackie.

    Now that you're rooted, what apps do you plan on running?

    Yep, no recovery.
    AdAway or AdFree, Titanium backup.
    (That's all I have on my device atm, aside from ES File Explorer but I don't think you need root for that one anymore)

    I've got Titanium and freezed apps last night. I wish that freezing apps freed up RAM. now I feel like the phone is draining battery faster than before.

    Don't forget to freeze SDM 1.0 so Verizon doesn't sneak through any OTA updates and break your root.

    I found some information a couple weeks ago that has helped my battery life. (Even though it wasn't bad to begin with)
    If you open up your WiFi's advanced settings, there's an option there called "always allow scanning".
    [​IMG] I noticed this box was checked, which puts a considerable amount of drain on your battery without your knowledge.
    It allows Google's location services and other apps to continuously scan for a WiFi connection, even when your WiFi is turned off.
    But even if you use WiFi frequently, you should already have your main locations saved so there's really no reason this box should be checked.
    If you live in a big city and are always looking to connect to WiFi at new locations, it may come in handy, otherwise uncheck the box and and you should notice an improvement.

    It's not WiFi. I changed that the day I got the phone. The OS is using 64% of the battery and I never had that before.
