    Are there any benefits to update to newest available CFS kernel if you haven't done the Froyo rom? Also, was thinking about downloading the launcherpro app but thought I would check around some users before hand.

    for kaos.froyo no, any other rom probably, as for launcher pro, I love it, I bought lp plus, and though adw is super nice, I don't think you can beat the stability of lp, and with lp plus you get some very nice sence like widgets, lpi app makes customizing lp incredibly easy. try the free ver. and play with it, see if you like it, if not you can allways go back.

    +1 on LP & LPP .... super stable, quick & highly cutomizable with LPI. The only other option (to me) would be ADW, as RR mentioned. Now, RR has a good deal more Android experience than myself, but I have a decent computer geek background + I am a quick learner (read XDA forums like you have no idea what going out & socializing is and you will -LEARN- faaasssst :)) ... Go with LauncherPro ... then LP+ .... once you toyed with it, you'll love it ... especially compared to all the others !

    As for the newest CFS kernel, I am (and have been) running NonSensikal Froyo 15.2. Both run CFSv8. I HIGH-ly recommend either KaosFroyo or NSFroyo. Both are Froyo 2.2.1 - NS is a straight CyanogenMod build and KF is an AOSP/CM build.
    Actually 2 others ROM choices would be TazzFroyo & CELB Froyo (dev by Conap who builds those kernels!) - I cannot speak for either, personally -BUT- they are both VERY reputable dev's and no wtf they're doing !

    Back to the CFSv9, from reading the XDA forums, there are some pro's and some con's. I am thinking it is a little hard on my battery life, but otherwise it's another great piece of work from Conap (& Deca) ... I am going to flash back to v8 to see if my battery life improves, but my battery life has basically alwaaaays sucked regardless of ROM/Kernel. It really depends on the ROM you are running. Please lmk what your experience is !

    THANKS TO XDA (and definitely DF, too !) ... Got my Eris in June (only b/c the INC. was backordered for over a month) .... I went from despising my brand-new stock 2.1 Android Sense Eris (thinking "This is a "smart"-phone ?!?!?) to absolutely LOVING it -> all it took was Eris 1-click root, flashing Kaos Froyo and have never looked back !

    Thanks to Punk.Kaos and his blazing port of Gingerbread to our beloved, but totally left for dead <by VZW> Eris, that Im not upgrading anytime soon !

    After upgrading the kernel and running launcherpro plus for almost a month now, I'm not sure if the upgraded kernel helped any but I am really liking the lpp! The customization is amazing and with the help of Desktop Visualizer, I have been able to make it look the way I want. I have noticed that occasionally lpp gets a little laggy but what app doesn't.

    dancedroidI rooted my Girlfriend's Eris with KaosFroyo v39 about two months ago. I never updated the Kernel because i didn't know how. Is it recommended to update the Kernel for her rooted Eris? If so then could someone please tell me how? Also since the root she has no GPS capabilities for any app that uses her GPS. everything is on correctly but GPS still don't work. Could someone help me with that also? Thank you
