    Anyone got tips on how to get better battery life out of Cyanogen mod 7? 'Cell standby' and 'Android OS' are chewing through most of my battery and I have half the apps I had when I was on Froyo 2.2 which had twice the battery life. Really enjoying Cyanogen mod otherwise :)

    Android OS bug is a 2.3.3 thing, it kills your battery quickly. How many percent is it taking? I had the issue but i froze the offending apps (software update and SNS) and it's all good. If you can update to 2.3.4 its even better.

    Sorry, should have mentioned I am actually on 2.3.4. I have also moved work offices to a place with near zero reception so that may be playing a part, I will do some more testing. Not sure if I can flash a different modem easily while using Cyanogenmod 7 nightly.

    Same here, minimal browsing, 12-15 calls a day, about 3 days between charge and it usually is at 40% when I charge it. Had the battery drop from 85-25% in 2 hours a few weeks back, just rebooted and charged it up and all good.

    Looking at picking up one of these to replace my aging Nexus One.

    would the Galaxy S be better than the Nexus?, i know the Galaxy has better screen size,

    will be better, but not enough to make the purchase worth it imo. I'd look at the galaxy S II if you can ( http://www.mobicity.com.au/samsung-galaxy-s2.html)

    nexus one with cm 7.1 > sgs IMO (yes sgs has cm 7 but it is nowhere near as stable)

    but when it comes to graphics/flash grunt sgs takes the lead

    they are about equal and a dual core phone will be a better leap

    Looks like i am leaving you guys! Vodafail network wasn't "compatible" with the galaxy s in my area, so they are sending me a SGS2 replacement which is "compatible" with their 850 network. But i will most likely getting out of contract when that fails.

    @baddas6 yup cyanogen mod and darkies and all other roms are all quite easy to install if you follow the guides.

    QUESTION! Do i need to disable lagfix if i do a original firmware nandroid backup? (pretty sure it is disabled anyways).
    2. Any guides from going fromg inger bread to STOCK voda 2.1 or 2.2?

    Hey guys,

    I think I may have a serious issue with my Galaxy S i9000T (Telstra model). Just recently (from yesterday) the phone has found itself on 2100 band (3TELSTRA) whereas previously it was working fine on 850 (Telstra).

    I've only recently flashed the phone to a custom ROM - specifically F1 JVP V9. I was on V5 for a little while until V9 came out. Previous to this, the phone was loaded with 2.1 and in my frustration with the lack of updates and 2.1 (battery drain, lag) I worked up the courage to flash 2.3.4 Gingerbread. I chose F1 cos sanjay suggested F1 in an earlier thread, and the instructions seemed easy and straight-forward enough to follow.

    Anyways, I also have a Blackberry supplied by my work. It also has a Next G SIM so I did a swap of the SIM cards and lo-and-behold my personal Next G SIM comes up with "Telstra" when the Blackberry boots up. Using my work Next G SIM in my Galaxy S fails to find any network. It reports "Telstra Mobile not available" or something to that effect. I'm not sure if the work Next G SIM supports any other band other than 850 though.

    I'm starting to wonder if the 850 radio is dead. Next G was working fine until yesterday.

    Not exactly sure what to do now. I've been looking at JVQ-based custom ROMs but I'm loathed to flash another custom ROM if I can avoid it. I'm going to try flashing back to F1 V5.

    Hopefully someone here who knows a great deal more than me can give me a hand :thumbup:

    Thanks hak,

    I tried flashing JVQ modem but it didn't help any. I found this thread on xda developers and tried using the CWM version but it seems to be old and won't install anymore. Looks like I'll have to go with ODIN (I'd much prefer to install via CWM).

    Hopefully this resolves my issue. It seems strange that I've been on JVP modem for almost a month now and it didn't seem to have any problems until now.
