    Battery Life is Worst :/ any Solutions or recommendation? even i use power saving. Thanks

    • Sasa

      How bad is it? I have standard battery and it lasts whole day, playing games, surfing, few calls, for me the best battery life of all xwls8, 2-3 % lost over night, wifi turned on only when I need it and I use 2g network, better signal and less battery drain.

      • galaxys2user

        -5% in idle no wifi nor 2g/3g network. and playing games just drains it i think its 1 mins is -1% of batt. percentage and using wifi. makes battery runs out faster. i dont know if its a battery problem of my phone or what. but see for yourself 😀

        • Thomas

          Must be your battery as i have no problem with battery at all i was out all day playing games surfing web etc and time i got home 7 hrs later average to heavy use i still had 27% on battery great Rom LOVE IT .

          • Maximos

            I have 0% lagy but the battery get out less thn 7hrs. I checked the battery it was always awake. because of the “Media” it is always on. is their anyway I can stop it ? it used 60% of the battery

    I’m using it for more than a week no fails-freezes I love it.
    Only question is:

    Earlier I tried your “Alliance” rom it has the CRT effect which was awesome!
    Is it possible to share an .apk or any update to this rom with CRT animation?
    Thanks, Daniel…

  • Andre

    From the netherlands
    Try this rom
    It is a good rom
    Everything works fine for me


    Nice ROM, feels very stable.
    Only problem I found is that the customization of the Notification panel doesn’t work for me. But that’s not an issue (for me) since the default settings are fine.



  • Danaxys2

    Yeye, only the Display->Notification panel makes a crash, but it’s not a big deal.

  • Robert Hein

    Before flashing any ROM, do a factory reset, clear the cache and Dalvik cache as well. Then flash your new ROM then again clear the cache and Dalvik cache before rebooting the phone. Also, use Juice Defender to help safe battery power. Stay high on Android…. 🙂
