guys, what is "seeder" app for?? I tried enabling it but I can't notice any difference... and um... this ROM's battery life is not as good as the 2nd one. Anything I can do to improve the battery life?? Man, I prefer this orange theme than the green one and further more the analog clock widget in this ROM is more beautiful than the old one

I agree
Seeder app is, according to the app developer, is going to make your rom fasster. But its pathetic and does not to do anything, because what the seeder does, android system already does. It has been proved to be a placebo by great devs
Ya, agreed on the battery life, its really mediocre. Nothing much you can do about it. If it wasn't for the theme and the analog clock in the new one, I would have switched back to 2. We think alike it seems

le random signature o.o

yes! The battery is really bad. I was shocked. It feels just like when I'm using CM9,10,10.1 ROMs lol. But what is the main reason for this pity for exactly? Because the status bar is white instead of black like The Myth 2?? I have read in somewhere about how black theme and wallpaper comsume less power than other colors and... I don't know if this can explain why the battery life is so bad in this ROM

I have no idea, but i think its caused by the colour scheme. White colour means the display is going to drink more battery juice. Display colours do play a role in battery consumption

Service A myth... on the Myth!

Displayed colour, black or withe, in the ACE's display doesn't bring any difference in power consumption. The ACE' display is LCD, NOT "whateverLED" type, and actually -it may seems strange- the power consuption is slight more with dark images than with full withe images (with the same backlight). The only way for the Ace's screen to consume less power is the dynamic backlight adjustment (it does NOT have this ability) automatically decreasing the backlight intensity when displayed images are dark. Then, the myth dark image (on the ACE)=less power consumption is only... a myth! For sure, in the ACE S5830, with white or black images, the required battery power depends ONLY on the backlight intensity. Regards!

Yeah! That's OK!

I think the battery drain is caused by the highly themed layouts and schemes, STOCK GB themes (as Stocklite) and Bareboned ROM( without a lot of proceses running in the background) are better to save battery and I agree with orsonbear, so reducing the backlight intensity is the best way to save power you can reduce it more with a terminal emulator than Settings allow you

How can I reduce the backlight intensity? I have no idea what that means. Does it mean... decreasing the brightness???
And if I calibrate my battery, will there be any improvement???

Power consumption depends vastly, as Viper said, also by the rom. A bareboned stock or custom rom, cleaned from bloatware and other useless software eating cpu power is the best on the power consumption side. Then, lowering the cpu clock, mantaining as low as possible the display brightness, avoiding not essential app running in the background, turning off the devices not in use as wifi or bluetooth, all this an other things can help to mantain low the battery drain. But each rom requires different strategy and each user has a personal taste in using phone: power consumption saving is a weird science!

Yes, descreasing brightness
and In my opinion to calibrate the battery won't increase its length, but you'll see that your battery is spent homogeneously, and you'll noticed that .
...and about how to... I always install a Terminal Emulator in every Rom I try and I tip it to help to save power:

Power off menu and back buttons
Code:
su
echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/button-backlight/brightness
chmod 444 /sys/class/leds/button-backlight/brightness
Decrease screen brightness
Code:
su
echo 15 > /sys/class/leds/lcd-backlight/brightness
chmod 444 /sys/class/leds/lcd-backlight/brightness
