lol, you're going into the wayback machine in the project... This thread is the 'contest' for the boot animation, lugiber definitely submitted a lot of great ones - and one of his eventually did win.

His favorite of mine was the drunken droid, but he submitted many!

The reason I say that is because when I booted back to WinMo the other night, the battery indicator in WinMo told me that I had drained substantially farther than XDA just had.

Granted, the battery meter was never great to begin with, but it had been better 'lately'.

So, I'd say this is more of an observation rather than a bug report. I wonder if you (or others) are seeing the same thing and that the battery is being reported as 'more full' than it really is???
The battery meter has always been off. jonpry (very talented developer) wrote a completely different batt algo - that even changed how polling worked, how it was calculated in sleep, and even designed a way to do 'mini-wakes' in order to get accurate battery readings. It worked great - but only for RHOD so it never made it mainline.

ACL was working to reverse-engineer the algo's from WinMo, with the hopes that we could at least get more sensible meters, as the current way we calculate battery life is very broken (as everyone knows).

There's a battery calibration app, which I hear helps in short bursts - but in reality we need to fix the algo.

Latest phone mishap, a call that wouldn't hang up. Will inspect later, just dropping this off for now.

Would you mind installing xdaledregime from your androidapps folder (by moving it to the root folder instead of a sub folder) and turning on the top option, amber if awake, green if asleep)? Then turn off your device and see if the led turns green?

I have been having sleep trouble. I turned in all my logs, but no smoking gun was found. I tweaked things a little since then (minfrees), and after it has been in android for 12-48 hours, it will start sleeping now, but it's very inconsistent. If there are more cases like mine, maybe it will help diagnose the problem.

I've been using this package for a few days with a 3.2.11 kernel on my rhod400 and I am absolutely amazed at how well it is working! I haven't tried android on my tp2 in over a year and I am amazed how far it has come.

I have no complaints about battery life, I have been able to go all day now with moderate use. One weird issue I have been having is with vibration always enabled I never get vibration with new emails and sms. hmm. Other than that way to go!

Might be a dumb question but I finally got myself a larger capacity micro SD for this Touch Pro 2. I restored everything from my previous build on it through Titanium Backup but it seems that it's all going to "Phone" which maxes out really quickly. I understand it all goes to the SD card but there seems to be a large list of programs I can't move to "SD Card" in Android and are taking up phone space. Any idea how to clear this up so it eats away at the capacity for the "SD Card" which is considerably bigger?

You can make your data.img larger which then gives you more space, however keep in mind the more apps you have the more chances you have of creating issues. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=824154

Finally trying out the latest GBX0B, and upon start up, keeps restarting with the flying androids over and over again. Using RHOD400 and htc-msm-linux-20120227_213021-package.tar.bz2.

Is that the bundled kernel? Start with what's bundled.

Are you reusing a data.img? Please start fresh if so. ts-calibration is literally the only thing you can reuse from FRX.

Trying out SetCPU. Have it set fairly default when the screen is on. 245min 691max (oc) w/ screen on. Using conservative govenor (slower scaling). However with the screen off, 128min 320max also using conservative govenor. We'll see how it goes in terms of SoD, waking speeds, overall speed, and battery life <- the main thing I'm looking to improve. I'll watch it over the week.
