    Noticed that SC is real popular around here. Just about ready to go for 2.9 via odin... wondering if I could get a little feeback on what you love or hate about SC. Right now im on bloated eb01 with all verizon stuff removed, love my setup and froyo in general but am curious how much better my phone could get by trying SC 2.9

    Pros: 2.9 is a very stable and solid ROM. The best that's out there right now.

    Cons: Battery life.

    With 2.9 some are experiencing random boots due to the music player in the lock screen. Just flash 2.9.1 patch. Also in the patch is a GPS mod that is really incredible. You're locked in in under 20seconds always it seems. No longer waiting minutes to get a lock.

    No, the patch is 2.9.1.

    Boot to red recovery
    Clear cache and dalvik cache
    Install sc2.9 zip
    Reboot
    Back to recovery
    Install sc2.9.1 zip

    If I wa to disable the lockscreen with the hidden menu (which i prefer to always do), will that eliminate this music player issue? Thing is, i hate using cwr (had a bad experience once), rather just odin to 2.9 and skip the patch

    It could work.

    Some people had problems and some people didn't have anything go wrong.

    I had the random boots which is why I did the patch.

    I'd go for the GPS mod though if you use yours. What Adrynalyne did is amazing. GPS locks very quickly now.

    Does the 2.9.1 patch improve the battery life. Battery life was good on 2.5. Now it is not so good, but tolerable.

    Ok, but what else? Performance wise, I dont use gps at all, so what else would I really notice about the rom? I understand just the principle itself of stripping away all the crap and how thats what android SHOULD be.

    It's faster smoother and there's more themes. Always getting updated to be better. If you don't like it all you have to do is flash back. Only takes a few minutes. Try it to see if you like it.
