I have the bad boyz rom zip on my SD card, should I use a different rom?

I usually wipe that stuff when I reflash the bad boyz rom anyway, been needing to do it so often I've gotten used to running lite. But to ask the same question again, should I ditch the bad boyz rom for something else? Just run the basic sprint rom from the RUU?

I also noticed a big jump in older firmware available in this thread, from 4.x to 6.x, is that the natural course of things for the firmware on this phone?

Well got all the firmware updated and that seemed to help it was deep sleeping again, but semi inconsistently (tested over a few days). I decided to run the RUU as per your suggestion (I d/l'd the zip and did the hboot method) but now my device has been unrooted and my recovery has been wiped. So now I need to figure out how to put twrp back on it and root it again.

Found the WinDroid Tool and got TWRP installed and gained root access again.

so here is the info to my device.
Radio. 1.24.23131147A1.09G
