There are way too many variables, including different runs of the hardware manufacturing process. I has been discussed ad nauseum just about everywhere in the Android community. I've personally found that messing with CPU settings just to get higher scores can easily bork an install of a ROM, so I stopped a while back. Again, I go by usability and real-world speed over any benchmark score. And no one was trying to inflate egos or act superior. It's just kinda taken at fact these days

I appreciate your input but I think you are overlooking one important piece of information that I assumed was made clear from the beginning.

I realize that, because each device is different, benchmark scores cannot be compared between devices. But, when you take an average of a series of tests (say, 20 or so), replicating the same testing environment, with the same device, you can get a pretty decent baseline comparison to use against other roms tested on the same device with the same testing environment as it eliminates as many variables as possible.

Scores that are off by a couple hundred are no big deal and can be attributed to hardware issues....I get that. But when scores are off by a couple thousand, one could likely assume that it is no longer a hardware issue and should be looking elsewhere for the source of the problem.

That being said, had I known that my interest in such an anomaly would cause people to get so offended, I probably would have kept my original comments to myself. But I have very little patience for people who, knowing nothing about me, feel it necessary to address me as if I were some random 14 y/o who has very little working knowledge of a system.



There...I've said my peace and you'll hear nothing more from me.

Oh, I hope you didn't think I was talking down to you, and yes, you can draw some comparisons on the same hardware unit from benchmarks. I was just saying that trying to push your device to the limit for the sake of a score can cause many more problems than it's worth. I've been through a lot of different Android devices, and thus a lot of different Android device forums, and I've found people are way to obsessed with comparing scores with other people. I've seen people pick apart scores and really screw up installs in pursuit of some other guy's score.

On a single device for your own comparisons, though, you're good. I get that. I'm sorry if I misunderstood you.

Am I the only one, or is this a "usual ics kindle fire" problem? Any suggestions? By the way, I followed your directions in the first post. Mostly everything else seems fine.

Also, the apps sizes change to 0.00bytes. Their names change to the long com.etc ones.
I can't say that I have ever heard of this problem before. Is it possible that the memory partition may have become corrupted? It is definitely not the usual ICS complaint.

OK. No more benchmark talk. If you have an issue, AS I HAVE STATED MANY TIMES BEFORE PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH YOUR PROBLEM! I'm not yelling at any of you. Please do not take this personally or post off topic again. It gets annoying after a long day when you come home and see a bunch of off topic posts. Please try to keep the off topic posts to a minimum. Thank you for those who emailed me instead of reporting in this thread. If you do report in this thread then please also send me an email so I can answer it faster and not have to look through 100+ posts to help you. Thank you for listening to my rant and that is all

Were you on the 3/19 build? My battery improved a lot when I went from 3/6 to 3/19.

I'm trying to decide whether to flash this one or not. Not sure there's a compelling reason for me.

My battery did the opposite when I went from 3/6 to 3/19. It was horrible... This rom has done much much better in the battery life department.

Edited OP to remind people that power off can only be achieved by 10 sec button hold. This is being worked on and should be fixed in v1.1
