I'm rocking calukins 3.0 gb rom with the gunslinger 1.4.0 kernel. I've been changing up the modem with the new FD releases but for a while i used either EL13 EL29 or FC22 and with those three I was getting amazing battery life. Right now I'm running the same set up but with the FD05 modem and I'm getting a full day with 3 or more hours screen on time and it still has some juice when I plug it in at night. The GPS lock on FD05 can be funny so I'm going to be trying out FD10 and FD16 the next few days to see if the battery life is as good but better GPS lock. Speeds are amazing with the FD modems in my area, these latest modems are feeling very very solid! Good luck and happy flashing buddy

I'd definitely give this a try http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1449023

Was on it for a long time, but I'm now on the ICS ROM from the same developer.
It has a bunch of flashable add-ons/mods, already themed, includes the Lockscreen settings, great battery life and very stable.

UnNamed was my favorite and I didn't want to switch until I gave that ROM a try. Needless to say I loved it and couldn't go to anything else because it had everything I was looking for in a ROM.

Blazer is my favorite with the sherbert theme.

And of course calkulin's !

They're very similar though. I'm sticking with blazer 4.1 until OTA ICS

i was running Caulkin's E4GT 3.0 ever since it came out and I loved it. I just recently flashed tFD19_v0.1.0 Rooted. Odexed to check out the whole ICS realm and I kinda like it. I'm still getting used to the interface and it's still missing the hotspot services, but I've been managing with wifi tether. This rom runs pretty smooth so far and I haven't seen any random restarts or errors. with tFD16 I was getting random pauses and apps closing, but so far this rom is running nicely. I have not encountered the notification problem that other people were talking about and with the FD19 modem, my connections are really stable and fast. The new tweaks on tFD19 actually greatly increase the battery life from tFD16 and it is so much faster than tFD16. Also included in this rom is the ICS launcher to run the ICS theme AND the twlauncher if you find the ICS launcher too new and confusing.

for tFD19

I still recommend a NAND backup before trying this rom out and it flashes through the Rogue CWM nicely

My favorite GB ROM is the Blu Kuban ROM by rujelus22. CM9 is my DD though
