Keep trying random ROMs. Try some 6.1s and some 6.5s. I'm sure you will find something that suits you. The batter life does suck balls, perhaps get a battery from ebay or something as a backup.

youd think that with the amount of money we spent on this contraption,that youd actually be able to use it for a ****ing day or so without inconveniencing yourself or anyone else,or having to buy another battery.
wtf

Re: Rc/starting To Hate My Touch Pro>>

I'm on Juicy 7 and using the Telus Radio (1.04). I can usually get a day and a half with moderate use. I uncheck the auto adjust lighting option and set the lighting to 1 or 2 below the midline, which seems to help with battery life. I hope you get something worked out. I love the TP, its a little bulky, but other than that it treats me well. Good luck.

Re: Rc/starting To Hate My Touch Pro>>

i felt much the same as you do when i first got my TP. im now running mightyrom reborn + the telus radio & im now very happy. i still dont get the battery life of my old mogul, but i now get at least double what i used to. i really recommend mightymike's roms, ive had reborn for about a month now & its very stable & quick. mightymike's are the only custom roms ive ever used for more than 2 days, if that tells you anything!

Re: Rc/starting To Hate My Touch Pro>>

I thought the battery like in these things was totally unacceptable until just recently. I actually have four spare seidio 1500 batteries & always carry a spare with me. That is on top of charging in a car bracket & sticking it in a charge cradle everytime I am near my desk at work.

That has all changed since I flashed to Merdin's latest 6.5 ROM. I don't know what the heck he did to increase the battery life but whatever it is it sure did work. I have not had to swap to a spare battery once since I have been running this ROM & I use to switch all the time.

I've been using MIGHTY ROM 5 and so far I don't have any issues. My battery life is a lot longer compare to a stock ROM. This ROM is fast and reliable. It doesn't freeze. You can try different other ROMs and see which one best suits your needs. I hope this helps.

Yeah I tested out a few ROM's and the only one I have kept for more than 2 days is the Mighty ROM5. It is a little sexier than 4R3born in my opinion, and it is lightning fast for me!

One thing I did notice though, was when I used Lil Rico apps for the Mighty Rom, no matter which MR I was using, my device ran a bit slower, and was a bit laggy, but I dropped the apps and now it is very fast!

My battery life is fine. I have my back lights adjusted to 100%, but I have my emails push every 30minutes to keep it from using too much battery power! Give that a try?
