A slightly off-topic question (sorry, due to rules I am not allowed to post in the Energy ROM thread): does Energy ROM include the mod to reduce/eliminate soft buttons light bleeding by turning their back-lit off or dimming it significantly? I was under impression that the latest version of Energy addresses this problem but I still can see the significant light bleeding coming from soft buttons?
The kernel is part of the rom, you can flash different kernels on different roms, but most of the time the devs have a built in a pretty good kernel. The Energy rom does still include Sense, so you wouldn't lose that. As far as battery life, that's something you'll have to investigate (as well as which kernel to use) in the Energy thread, someone may have posted luck with a specific kernel or overclock/underclock setting.
Yes, I've been using the Faux kernel from yesterday on my Amaze with NRGZ ROM. Right now, its hard for me to say if there is any improvement or loss of battery life with this kernel as I hardly used the NRGZ rom with stock kernel.
What makes it more complicated is Faux kernel supports UV, which the stock kernel doesn't. However, I don't know if its activated by default on the faux kernel, because OC Daemon doesn't support UV on faux kernel. To make any changes, you would have to use system tuner.
Also there also isn't any straight forward method to measure the idle current drain on the phone as softwares like the current widget don't report the right numbers on Amaze. I'm thinking of purchasing BetterBatteryStats app to monitor it, as its supposedly the best software to do it. I can't base my judgement on my usage as its highly irregular to make any sort of comparison.
