I tried the update twice; the first time, I chose "Reboot phone" from the CWM menu after installation, and the second time, I powered down. Same result both time.

Per the instructions, I did NOT wipe data, since I was already on GV 1.3.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks!

You should be fine. The name was not changed in the file. There are many posts about in the gv 2.0 thread.

Oh, that might explain a lot then. Other than the build number, is there any indication that I'm on 2.0 now? The animated startup graphic is the same as it was before.

If you can overclock without flashing the kernel then you're good. 1.3 didn't have the kernel implemented.

I wouldn't know how to overclock my phone if it smacked me in the face...

I was having some trouble with Bluetooth, so I went back to GV 1.3 and checked the build number. When that didn't help and I ended up having to factory reset my phone to get BT working again, I went back to GV 2.0 again, and noticed a different kernel build number. I guess that's one way to tell that I'm on 2.0. I can't tell any difference in how it works otherwise, though.

Question Battery problems

Has anyone else had any problems with the battery dying fast after switching to gingervolt 2.0? Since updating from gingervolt 1.3 to 2.0 my battery has been dying significantly faster (from 100% at 7:30am to 20% at 9:30pm with hardly any use and yes I have the extended battery). I am using rom toolbox and have the cpu set to Max: 1305Mhz and Min: 576Mhz with the governor set on smoothass (this was also set on 1.3 with no issues). My phone also will occasionally freeze and reboot at random times. I also noticed that it seems to lag when opening certain apps. Verizon tried to push an update to my phone which thankfully did not go through but i was able to go into the system files and change the system/lib/libme_main.so and change it to system/lib/libme_main.so.bak. That seemed to stop the update from trying to install. I also went to etc/security/otacerts.zip and added .bak to the end. Doing this accomplished nothing and now it wont allow me to remove the .bak from the end of the file. I love gingervolt 2.0 when it is working properly and hope I can get it to run smoothly. If anyone has any suggestions please share.
