Ok, I know this was a major argument before but I'm gonna say it anyways without trying to start something..
Turning data off just isn't that practical for everybody. Sure it saves battery. That's a duh. But that's like saying to save gas don't drive, push your car instead.
That's just me...
Here's what I do, and I'm getting pretty decent stats. Will post pic after I wipe stats and do a full run. (Just installed b0 today)
For those who don't believe in pushing your cars:
The custom kernel nonsense is well... nonsense.
I'm using shadow kernel (now v0.6 I believe) and I CAN use 100mhz.* AND I can undervolt it. Something I don't believe stock can do. (I may be wrong) this also allows higher voltages (better performance for you noobs out there)
My voltage control settings:
I\o = cfq (idk what these mean to be honest I just remeber seeing someelse used it)
Cpu gov. = on demand
Min-max = 100 - 1300
*I've read that some people can get it to stick with 100 others can't. So far I can and it seems most can. Even still, 200 uv'd with oc abilities is a better deal than 100 with no uv or oc. In my opinion. i could prob do some stronger undervolting but these are my tried and true stats thus far. will test harder settings soon.
I set my brightness settings to dim 25 50 75 100. (No auto, batt killer) I've been using it at 25 so I don't get the green flash bc voodoo color.
I've got awesome colors (side note) and will share if wanted.
All of the above is my opinion of the best (thus far) for those interested to consider. Not me stating the 1 best thing period and starting a fight.
