It works good enough.

Battery usage seemed really bad when I was downloading games, listening to music and playing games, but when the downloads where finished and I stopped the music, the last five percent took a pretty long time and could have taken even longer if I didn't accidentally turn the phone off. I think the battery calibration isn't right. However, I haven't used it enough to say something realistic about the battery life. Dehydration hack is turned off, I'll try ECO.
(EDIT: With ECO and Battery Saver turned on, battery usage is acceptable, as long as Wi-Fi is turned off.)

There is only one problem: I don't have the black theme. Probably, I am doing something the wrong way (this is my first unlock / WP ROM). Should I just install an app for this? (I don't need any help if that's the case, I know how to search)
(EDIT: I downloaded the wrong version)

Could one come back

Hi, I could do it if I wanted to go back to official rom and, since my omnia7 firmware is kk2, there would be any problems with full unlock?

Thanks in advance!

Battery life

For all of you, having trouble with low battery life using this ROM (just over one day, or so, of normal usage), I might have a solution. (I am using first ROM with 7.8 system, that poloche cooked, posted HERE, if it makes any difference.)

First things first - When i originally installed this ROM, battery life was very bad. A day of normal usage, and that's it. I tried many different things, in one moment disabling dehydration hack seemed to help, but only after uninstalling a number of apps, problems disappeared. I will get back to that. Here is how my Battery screen in settings looks like now:

View attachment 1518961

Battery saver is turned off (except when it turns itself on), Wi-fi is turned on, downloading emails is set to "as items arrive", so no special measures of saving battery. Battery drain when phone is idling is exactly 1% per hour, never more.To be totally honest, it is four and a half days of relatively light usage - a few calls, several SMS messages per day, some internet, mail, etc. But, then again, before that, my phone was practically idling, and battery lasted one day anyway.

And what is most curious, application responsible for battery drain was - Nokia Drive :confused:. Since I uninstalled it, problems were gone. So, I forgot about the whole thing, and kept using phone for a few weeks.

Then recently, I decided to install some more apps. And then - what a surprise! Battery drain again. After just 2 hours, battery dropped from 100% to 86%, with only a few minutes of phone usage.
And, application responsible was, believe it or not - Nokia Trailers. :confused: I uninstalled it, and problems were once again gone.

So, here is my theory. Branded Nokia apps cause battery drain. How and why, I have no idea. It may be a long shot, but I don't know how I could interpret facts differently. And facts are pretty straightforward - no Nokia apps, battery lasts four days. Install any of them - it drops to just over a day, and nothing else is changed on the phone.

Maybe someone should try it out, however stupid it may sound... :p

Not stupid, but one can also set those Nokia Apps never allowed to run in the background; when they're stopped they really don't eat any more battery life then :)
Same thing with Gmaps too.

Once battery calibrated fine ( 4 days use battery discharger tool at night before charging during the night ) it can last two days with regular usage, phone, sms, some mail (set to 1 hour) and some light web browsing. With intensive use like games etc it might last only one day, or even 12 hours ;)

Best,

This is a wonderful Rom. However after one day I cant open 80% of my apps anymore, just flips back to the previous screen and this is realy one of my favorite roms. What can I do to fix this?

Edit, I left everything as it was, didn't change anything in this rom.

    Thank you for your quickly. May I ask two more questions ?

    Firstly, I am using mi7Rom from this thread, but I don't know how to install xap from my PC to my phone...

    Install WindowsPhone SDK from Microsoft website and try this one!
    http://wpmanagertool.codeplex.com/

    Secondly, How to copy music from PC to phone without Zune ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Good question.. You can mount the phone as drive in Explorer

    dear poloche, this is a great rom...

    have a little request, could you provide the original dll for the status bar (white without percentage) (if i have understood correctly tshres.262.dll) i'd prefer it... i suppose i could change it by myself

    You can instal Color Start Menu.xap and instal yourself the original power bar :) .. if not, i share you the file dll !
