Glad to hear you have it working. I just reloaded 0.8.4 and did not install a task killer, nor did I setup setCPU, and so far battery life is much improved. I think I will run without setCPU for a while to see how it goes. I really didn't use a task killer all that much, but got rid of it just in case there was something running in the background.
thank you thank you thank you everyone! I have gotten it to work. (stock update plus black bar and google apps) I think it was because of the new version of clockwork and the fact that the file that my phone was downloading was corrupted(only 40mb not 60) Im actually really happy i went through with this because based on my first impressions it is really fast and smooth. THANKS!!!
