So I don't know if maybe you want to check a little more into this ROM.
I don't need to, I used it myself.
Both of my ROMS are identical except for the base used.
With Omega and the 3.30 base, I was experiencing unexplainable fast battery draw. I experienced the same with a few other 3.30 roms, (including the Deodexed 3.30 OTA). So it is not my ROM, it is the 3.30 kernels and base.
With Azrael, my battery life is back to being just as good if not better than ever before I started using 3.30. Considering they are identical, if there was something running in the background killing battery, Azael would have the same problem. I even used the same method to optimize them.
I also am enjoying better downloads that work first time, and the 3.29 base works perfect for my phone.
Some report Omega works better and their phone has better battery life. If Omega had a "problem", there would be more reports of it.
So please do not try and tell me it is my ROM or tell me I need to check my ROM. You like the 3.30 base better because it is newer and you probably think that is why it is better. I have checked and tested my ROMS.
You know how I know also? I am not the only one who is saying now that I brought back the 3.29 base that their phone is working better again.
The 3.30 OTA is not made for older phones, it is intended for the new hardware 0004 (and some later 0003 hardware) that uses a different camera chip. There is nothing "better" about the 3.30 OTA. It is newer, but not latest and greatest.
3.30 is designed for phones that have this new camera chip. This is why some are reporting problems with third party camera apps with the 3.30 base and 0004 hardware. Now if you are running 0004 hardware, I bet OmegaEVO would be better than Azrael.
The kernel has a lot more to do with battery than a ROM does, I bet your phone simply does not like the HTC #17 kernel that OmegaEvo uses.
