I'm on broken out revo 1.1, and I need to say that zv8 and the work mtmichaelson has put into this phone has not only saved it from disaster, but made it something to be fond of.

I didn't think this kind of battery life was possible, so thank you!

*note that this is on a stock battery and for 6hrs one night the phone was in airplane mode...

If you look closely at his status bar those black areas show huge amounts of time the phone was asleep. Still, impressive. I'm guessing he spends a lot of time on wifi and hasn't bumped up his min proc speed.

Also, +1 for Go SMS.

I actually keep wifi off most of the time, unless i'm at home. The wifi at work drops its signal a lot and forces my phone to constantly switch between wifi and LTE, so I usually just rely on LTE. I'm in Seattle, so my LTE coverage is very solid and consistent; I rarely see my phone dropping to a 3G network.

I thought I had bumped my minimum processor speed up to 245, but i guess i didn't make it stick, so I was running the 122.

And even though there was plenty of sleep time for the phone, it is still close to a 3x improvement over stock zv5 and zv7, as well as GingerVolt. On some of those rom's i'd be lucky if my phone made it 12 hrs on a good day without draining the battery.

what ROM are you on? that seems to have the greatest impact, because before ZV8 battery life was mostly terrible.

I would estimate my phone usage to be close to, if not slightly under, normal. No graphics heavy games, but normal text messages, emails, banking, calls, facebook, calendar, alarm...you get the idea.

if you follow all the directions to a T, you shouldn't run into any problems. and the more you practice, the more comfortable you'll feel about working with your phone.

root and broken out ftw. it will make your phone worth having, because the stock that verizon puts on this is crap and will leave you frustrated.

If you can get all of your important documents/files onto your computer, just reload them...I erase everything from my phone on a fairly regular basis and really only keep what i absolutely need. that, and setting everything back up really isn't that difficult. its all part of the process and fun of having an android

I just rooted and had this happen. Lost everything off my SDcard too. I was sooooo Just wanted to cry. But my documents were on my computer so I was okay with that. Pics/Music too. But was more upset that I lost my app backup. It's a pain to download 92 apps and remember them all...

But it's worth it.

Go to the app store on your computer. All the apps you downloaded will be there and you can then re-download them.
