It sucked before rooting, in excess of 3 mins for boot, sluggish UI at times. After root and freezing a bunch of useless apps everything is much snappier and boot is exactly 1:06.

good to hear ! maybe there's hope for me yet =) Axi, I did notice after rooting everything is much snappier ! And boot is super quick compared to before..

Andro, do you have an tips on battery life? Any apps you're using or specific ones you froze? I froze a couple sync apps and such but I'm' still not noticing great battery life =( today for example, I unplugged at 9am with a full charge, played about an hour of gaming in total mixed with maybe 10 texts..and 10 mins of browsing and I was at 18% at 5:30 ive made sure everything is set to manual in terms of fetching new data.. not sure what i'm missing lol

Thanks for all your help guys!!

The best tip i can give is install juice defender.
I've tested this app on several phones, most succesful.

Used it on my HTC Desire, and went from 12 to 24 hours.
On my play i went from 8 to 24 unrooted - unmodded
(Looking forward to try now, after removing ALL bloatware and apps i won't use)

thanks biteme! I'll do that and see it if help i hope so! i left my phone off the charger the other night just to see how much the battery drained on it's own, untouched...after 3 hours I went from 49% to 19% =S and that was the phone just lying next to my bed while I slept lol

I'm going to try juice defender I hope it helps =D I've seen a slight bit improvement but that's when I turn off 3g..and I've read most people are getting good batt life WITH 3g on hmm..

biteme, if you wouldn't mind posting back when you've rooted with juice defender and let us know ? that'd be awesome! thanks a bunch!!

I've never seemed to have any issues with the battery life.
Rooted, some bloat gone but not too aggressive.
Loads of widgets on stock UI, most set to auto update.
Went to sleep last night at 86%, woke up 8hrs later at 75%.
