With CarbonRom 1.7 with 2.6 kernel,battery life is excellent. 10 hours used for music and books and 66% remaining. It is smooth.
The major bug you could except is the lack of HW Acceleration, maybe you don't know what it is but we all learned it unfortunately.
Without HW acceleration you can't watch 720p and 1080p videos for example without big lags of the video.
Do you have a link to the sources to build? I'm familiar with building Android apps.
Thanks the rom is very smooth and usb storage works perfectly. Videos with mx player are smooth with armv7 neon codecs, the rom is ultra customizable. No problem encountered so far.
Ha thanks for the super team of developers. Now the room is smoother than ever(until 3.0)thanks to the overclock and stuff. Plus great there is the signal fix with it.
