    So I've decided that new GB is killing my battery life and it sounds like Liberty should improve that significantly (I used to get 40 hrs on stock Froyo with a screen-off underclock)

    So my question is, should I go back to Froyo and use Liberty 2.1, or stay on GB and go to Liberty GB .7? I don't mind paying the $5 to get the newest version and whatnot, I just want to make sure I choose something stable.

    I'm currently running the rooted OTA Verizon GB thanks to TBH!

    I am also thinking the same.. however if you do the latter of the two i believe you have to sbf back to froyo then do the rooted .596 ota (tbh). I maybe wrong though.. i hope so, cause i would lve to go back to liberty!

    Gingerbread is superior in battery life, performance, and functionality. I dont get why people like froyo so much. Yes you should get 0.7. Stability is not an issue. Runs great.

    Nope, I use Wi-Fi off and on so I never really thought about it much. Biggest thing was the underclocking.

    Performance to some extent is better, though some things like WidgetLocker don't run as smoothly anymore.

    Functionality, I don't really see much difference. Wifi tether doesn't work anymore and Widgetsoid Notification toggles are bugged now.

    Battery Life: Going from 35-40 hrs per charge to less than 20? For shame!

    Less than 20?

    Don't you sleep? Throw your phone on the charger at night...like the other %99 of the world does.

    Of course I do! But like everyone else, I forget now and then, plus, every cycle lowers the total life of the battery. I'd rather use the full battery 3 times a week instead of 6 times a week.
