This answered a question I had in the supernova thread about what was different between them. Going to have to take the leap to js5 later on tonight or tomorrow when I have time to.

Question Adam, what ROM has the best future?
When you created SuperNova, I changed to that thinking that would be where you would spend most of your time long term even if you did some updates to Phoenix. Then I saw the Phoenix 5.2 with JS5 and I wasn't sure. Both now have a JS5 version and use the latest Speedmod kernel so other than UI (I use the cosmic76 theme), will there be any significant difference? I know there are some app issues (facebook, new versions of Pandora, etc) but I don't know if they will both have the same issues and which you would fix first, etc. I am about to flash again but I don't want to keep following both threads so I'd rather stick to one type - SuperNova or Phoenix. Any insight on which to choose (ignoring UI)? Will either get more features, etc?

I am going to remove the JS5 for Phoenix. There really is no need for it and I should have thought about that. It is just UI that is changed really and a few apk's. The GPS files are a bit different as well.

Hmmm.... if the GPS from JS5 is improved, any way you could make that happen on JPY Phoenix?

Thanks Adam,
I just flashed my wife's 1007 Captivate with SuperNova 2.3 and used the KP1 modem and her GPS has finally been on a par with mine and in fact tracked better than my Phoenix 4.5 with JK4. I tried Phoenix 5.2 JS5 but fell back due to some app issues. Also, my Good Enterprise app stopped syncing AGAIN so I am going back to stock to see if I can get it working and then will flash SuperNova 2.3, 13C kernel, KP1 modem, and enable the recommended SM tweaks and lagfixes. If I read "between the lines" on your response correctly, SuperNova is "the child you would send to college". Any comment?

On a separate note, I read in a really good battery thread that we should NOT run auto app killers anymore. They were almost required in earlier Android releases and became "dogma" but they can make things worse now because it kills apps which restart automatically and that wastes battery. If you have enough RAM then we are only wasting CPU and the memory to run the killer process. Also, the SM kernel has a "low memory" killer setting which I assume will kick in as necessary and having that part of the kernel would be much more efficient than running a user process - at least that is my "thinking".

Yeah, app killers are a no-no now. I am sure you have noticed that the stock setup on any of my ROMS the mem useage is very low, usually around 200-225 max. Now that will of course raise depending on what you install adn what is running the background, but I designed them to be mem sippers.

Have you looked at the KB1 build at all as another option?

Not that the JPY version of Phoenix wasn't awesome!
And the JS5 version of Phoenix is faster but has some very minor "bugs" (if you even want to call them that) that can be fixed fairly easily.

I was going to look into that base. Seems pretty decent.

I'm having a problem with any apps that use the camera, barcode scanner, google goggles, etc. They FC every time I attempt to start them. I've tried multiple kernels, K12U, K13A, K13B and the same result. Could this be from the Hacked Camera? I really like the power button as the shutter but would be willing to trade that out for working apps that use the camera. Anyone else have the same issue or potential solution? Oh, running Phoenix 4.5 with K13B kernel. Thanks.
