Oh you minor user you just wouldn't know.

I didn't know that browsing the interweb ever spare second, and playing emulator games was considered minor

Ok, I minimized the amount of widgets and other "OH NO! FEED ME!" apps on the phone now and it's hauling. Not to mention battery life's fantastic.

What roms and kernels have you guys been running? I've been having a bit of trouble w/ gps here and there.

I'm running:

Kernel: BAMF 4.3a by adrynalyne
ROM: Das BAMF 1.4 Remix

No themes or anything special other than launcher pro. Moron test was free on amazon other day! Anyone else get it?

Just updated to Das BAMF's Gingerbread stripped of sense!

Faster, smoother, better. ;-)

Truly the best phone on Verizon IMO.

How is rooting the phone? I've never rooted before but would love to get rid of all the bloat on my TB...
post #26 of 45
I just got this phone yesterday, battery life seems a bit lackluster but I'll be using it today and seeing how long it goes, 100% at 11:48 so. Thinking about rooting it today but we'll see.

Come by my place and I'll do it for you.

It took some time. I did it in ADB and followed the instructions from Android Central. Lots of commands, but if you can follow directions well, you'll do fine. You'll become more confident and comfortable too.

Battery life SUCKS out of the box. Do NOT run 4G unless you NEED it. The retail store will look you in the eye and lie to you about this. It will KILL your battery life. You don't need 20 Mbps down on a phone, lol!

So I run 3G unless I'm doing a major dealio or hotspot. I've had the thing routing 4 devices including a torrent server and serving up the same speeds as my Cox cable service (which I no longer have THANK GOD!) DSL/Fiber > Cable, but that's for another day.

So BAMF's toolbox has an option to switch from 3G to 4G w/ ease. You want that. You want Gingerbread too. But more than anything, just enjoy the device for now. I would say, get used to it. Know it. Then when you improve it, you REALLY appreciate it.

Good luck guys! Feel free to ask me any questions too. I've had it since release and actually just got it Ghost Armored which I would HIGHLY recommend. The Steinhall Crystal Clear protector I had on previously was GARBAGE. All scratched up, rainbow, weird feel. You get what you pay for. I had them install it in the mall for $33 bucks and that got me the "matte" external body shield too! So now it's super grippy, but I don't need a case. This is a big phone IMO and the high gloss case I used before just made it unwieldy.

Peace.

I have owned an incredible since launch, and I'm thinking of upgrading to the tbolt. I absolutely love my incredible, and it gives me absolutely no issues. I just want a bigger screen and LTE. Would you guys recommend I upgrade to the tbolt? or just wait?

I may just take you up on that... kinda apprehensive about doing it myself since it's apparently a kinda tricky root and I've never rooted anything before, dont even know what ADB is

I loved the Incredible...for 3 days. Then I got frustrated with a multitude of issues which I WILL NOT go into here because 99.9% of you guys will never notice and I don't want to create any extra chaos.

The Incredible wasn't good enough for me by far. The Tbolt is good enough for me BY FAR after months. I can't tell you what to do...I'm no phone God, but I can give you my experience and hope it somehow helps!

Definitely read til your blue in the face. It's like anything, you have no idea, then you do.

[Procedure] How to Root the Thunderbolt with ADB (Windows)

Read over @ XDA too, but those guys do not deliver all the information you need in one place. Often times I have to pull files from 3 different threads and information from 3 more. It's not always in the 1st post either. It can take a LONG time to really understand what's going on and that's what causes the sheeple to defect to Apple. I had a good friend that's now losing touch with reality...it's really a sad thing.
