almost 20 hours with heavy usage (well, heavy to me).

Guys! I don't know why everyone is getting so het up about battery usage. Everyone seems to be comparing battery usage against each other (and with other ROM's) and trying to compete for the best battery usage and longest lasting droid.

Battery usage is a personal thing. Let me explain.

Both my wife and I have exactly the same phone, an Incredibe S. Both of us are using exactly the same ROM. same radio, same OC and same kernel. Both of us charge our droids overnight. Both of us get up at exactly the same time and unplug our droids at exactly the same time.

Yet, by bedtime, some 14 or 15 hours later, she still has about 60% battery left whereas I have less than 20% battery left.

Why?

Because I probably use my droid more than she does. I use K9 Mail, she uses stock email. I use Tapatalk, she doesn't. I follow some 80+ people on Twitter, she has around 15. (So I get far more Tweets than she does.) I use Facebook more than she does.

We both also used to use MSN Talk Pro (now Epinephrine) but since we realised this app kept our phones awake all the time (even with screen off) we no longer use it.

The moral of the story?

As I said above, battery life is a personal thing and will vary from user to user. It will vastly depend on what apps you use, what apps you have installed and how you use your droid.

You simply CANNOT compare!

It's the same as Quadrant Scores.
Crap!

There was a problem with Ken's version 7 kernel where the front camera causes the camera app to force close, also a video delay.

So Ken has released v7.1

Ken says....

OK inc s users reverted the camera mod and kept the wifi fix http://www.multiupload.com/081U5CZNPQ

Have come back to this ROM since I had the boot issue(i think it was in 2.37) and I must say that this is super smooth and one of the best battery usage I got.
Legs, do you have the patches that you have mentioned in your signature and does it break anything?

Has anyone tried the new and latest Android Market yet? Version 3.3.11

I find it's faster and better with more new features (available in the menu settings)

Thank you very much, but most of links are no longer good ... I still managed to have the kernelLorDmodNCTeam ...

    Virtuous Unity is the first custom Sense 3.0 ROM, scaled for WVGA screens, to be based on an official shipping release from HTC (1.45.401.2).
    The entire ROM is brand new, taking no application or framework components from any prior Sense 3 releases.

    Unity is the result of a collaborative, team effort by the following developers:

    Features

    • Based on the official Sensation shipping ROM (1.45.401.2).

    • Ported for full functionality on each supported devices. Additional device support is being added regularly.

    • Resized for WVGA (800x480) displays, using a purpose built tool to modify HTC's proprietary m10 binaries, developed by Flemmard and Diamondback.

    • Heavily optimized for fluid performance and usability.

    • Overclocked kernels with numerous additional kernel modules.

    • Built-in screen state frequency scaling (1.2Ghz-245MHz/ondemand screen-on, 806Mhz-245Mz/conservative screen-off), via custom built Virtuous_OC C daemon.

    • Trackpad wake support (DesireZ/G2 and MT4G only).

    • WiFi calling (T-Mobile USA only).

    • Fully functional device hardware, including wifi, bluetooth, camera, camcorder, etc.

    • Market-sourced applications (Gmail, Maps, Voice, etc) automatically installed on first boot into /data/app for easy removal.

    • Bloatware and unnecessary applications removed.

    Supported Devices

    Porting Information and Credits

    There has been an enormous amount of interest surrounding utilizing components or modifications from our ROMs. To this point, our policy was that any such work needed to explicitly be approved by the team. The fact of the matter is that the policy is simply not enforceable and any time consumed working to enforce it detracts from the time we have to work on Android (which is what we really enjoy). As such, we’ve decided to go in a different direction.

    Going forward, ROM developers are welcome to utilize any portions of our ROM which are of interest.

    Our only requirement is that you let us know about what you’re doing by sending an email to (devteam|at|virtuousrom.com), credit the Virtuous Team in your thread(s) and provide a link to our website. No response on our part is required whatsoever, we’re just interested to hear about how our work is helping you.
    Our plan is to continue to innovate and push the envelop of ROM development; with the goal of staying enough ahead of the curve to merit a desire to clone our work.


    Important Notes

    • If you are experiencing random freezes and/or reboots, this is likely due to your device being incapable of handling our overclocking defaults. Download and apply this flashable patch, which will reduce the maximum CPU frequency to 1Ghz and likely eliminate this issue.

    • You must complete a full wipe prior to installing this ROM the first time. We also recommend wiping between upgrades, but you are welcome to try upgrading without a wipe. However, no support will be provided if you file a bug without having wiped prior to submission.

    Bugs and Errors

    To ease the process of reporting bugs to the team, we made a public bugtracker where you can report the bugs you found. Please make sure you read all the existing entries there to avoid doubling the errors.

    The bugtracker is located here.

    Device specific information


    (Official Website of Virtuous ROM)​
    Check out our forums

    Install instructions (thanks to lollylost100):
    1. Make a full wipe (please don't use Full Wipe 1.5 (EXT4) or such tools)
    2. Flash ROM
    3. Reboot

    Please keep in mind:

    You can always try to do a non wipe install, but we can't provide you support in this case.
    If you find any errors in the ROM and you have NOT wiped before, please wipe and see if the errors persists.

    Special features

    This ROM has some unique or not widely known features which I want to explain here.

    Screenshot
    This ROM (in fact most Sense 3 ROMs) has the unique feature to make screenshots without any additional app.
    Just Hold the "Power"-Button and then press "Home" at the same time and the phone will save your screenshot in the Images folder on you SD-Card. :)

    OC Daemon
    This ROM deals with overclocking a little bit different than other ROMs. To get further information read this post.

    Fancy input animations
    Unfortunately HTC removed from all their Sense ROMs the "open" and "close" animations for the keyboard. :(
    Thanks to seo we were able to get them back :)
    There are two different animation versions. The normal one is always activated and there is also no way to deactivate it.
    The second "fancy" version can be enabled via the app "Spare Parts" which is in the Android Market. :)

    Custom user app install during first boot
    The ROM has the ability to automatically install custom user apps during the first boot (after a wipe)
    All you need to do is the following:
    1. Create an folder on your SD card and name it virtuous_unity
    2. Create another folder inside virtuous_unity folder and name it 'app.user'
    3. Copy all the desired apps in this directory in there paketname form, for example: 'com.quoord.tapatalkxda.activity.apk'
    4. Now flash the ROM via your recovery
    5. During the first boot the apps get installed from your SD card, as this will take a while, don't get impatient :)


    Release strategy
    We are planing to release our ROM in the future every week on the same day and around the same time.
    This point in time will be every Monday night (GMT). Which is ca. 24h from NOW.

    If there are no MAJOR bugs we will release what ever we have done at this time.
    Saturday night (GMT) is the so called feature freeze, then the ROM will enter the testing phase. It gets tested until monday and then the team will talk about the results.
    Once everything is approved we'll release the next version.

    As you should know now when the next version arrives I won't answer ANY questions concerning ETAs. :)

    And the percentage circle battery : http://db.tt/q9UIgaS And another post on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=17101593&postcount=2007
    Thanks to quoler!

    Bullethacks download : http://minus.com/lbbMjKFiyoxapS
    Thankyou Legsmaniac :)

    This is optional and of personal choice. I'd suggest you do a Nandroid backup first in case you decide you don't like it.

    BulletHacks changes the Virtuous option in the Settings Menu to Tweaks and allows you to....
    Change the taskbar clock style, colour and format.
    Allow you to add a battery % and set the colours you want to use.
    Enable you to change the Signal options and colours.
    Some Custom Sense options. (Including 5 column app drawer)
    Screen Animations on/off.
    Control the Overscroll settings.

    Just flash BulletHacks.zip in the usual way.
    Doesn't affect the backlights.

    Hope it helps :D :D :D

    SRS and Dolby Patch : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=17159516&postcount=6537
    If you dont know what SRS does well I'd say you should flash it, coz it makes the sound output more... nicer u can say, rather than the distorting sound without the fix.
    Thankyou IncredibleSlover for the link :)
