    I am experiencing incredible battery life with 3.1.1 - I've gone over the 40 hour mark (original, stock battery) and I'm still at 60%.

    Granted, this hasn't been the most active two days on my OG Droid, but I have made calls and texts, recieved and checked emails, listened to music and browsed the internet a little bit. I would say my usage was light to moderate.

    I'm running the stock kernal: 800-250, on demand, no profiles. No theme installed. Messaging and home are not locked into memory. Recently applied Pete Alfonso's recommended AutoKiller Memory Optimizer settings at the following levels: 6, 10, 20, 24, 28, 28.

    A big thanks to the Black Droid and the rest of the Ultimate Droid team.

    I have definitely seen a whole lot better battery life with 3.1.1. I am at 70% after 10 hours and my checks two email accounts every 15 mins. I also run a few widgets like weatherbug, weather.com, Profile Settings. With older versions of UD like 3.0 I was getting really bad battery life I would be at 30% after 8 hours. UD rocks!

    Lucky!

    I turned my droid off at 80% last night. Turned it on this morning only to have 20%.

    OP looks believable to me. It looks like you didn't use your phone very much at all. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Uhh....duh! Lol. I'd say its been safe for quite some time now. I was a HUGE fan of 2.5 myself, too, but now that I'm not 3.1.1 with this kind of battery life and performance, 2.5 is a thing of the past...

    You might as well give it a try anyways...

    Mine looks more like yours, poontab. I use my phone a HECK of a lot, but I'm still getting great battery life, considering.

    No, I know that my sig probably still says that, but there's no way to change it on the DF app, and I rarely sign onto DF on the computer. Thanks for letting me know tho, I'll update that.

    Anyways, to answer your question, I am back to using the stock kernel. I tried chevy lv, raidzero lv, and lfy, but the stock kernel gives me the best battery life and the least overheating (actually, no heat issues with stock kernel). Stock kernel has been best for me.

    Understandable. 3.0.1 had a few bugs for me as well. However, I can say that I don't have one single bug on 3.1.1. GPS, texts, and everything else works fine for me.

    As for your theme, I have been disappointed with the lack of 3.1.1 themes as well. 2.5 had SO many themes it was AWESOME. For 3.1.1, it seems that B-Boy is the only themer taking to the ROM version (and he has done it very quickly and efficiently). Now don't get me wrong, B-Boy makes great themes, I just wish I could see more participation from others as there was in 2.5. Maybe it's because it's difficult to port themes over for Gingerbread...? If that's the case, hats off to B-Boy for making all of his themes readily available shortly after the release of 3.1.1.

    I would say for you to at least give it a try. Make a backup of 2.5 so you can go back to it. Then, you've got nothing to lose. Who knows, you might be one of the lucky ones like me without any bugs, and will love the performance and battery life. It's amazing!

    Yeah I have theme chooser, but haven't delved into it much. Doesn't it only offer Nexus Red atm? And doesn't it only give color variations? If you know something more, please help! Lol.
