I've been running this since it came out a few weeks ago. Coupled with the latest Samurai kernel (samurai-gen 2.0.6) I've been incredibly satisfied with performance, battery life, etc.

Let me know if you have any other questions about this rom and I'll answer what I can.

Re: Help me choose a custom ROM!

ACS-ICS 5.5 is now a dead end. Marcus's latest version of his EI22 rom is called Revival. It's really RED!! Check it out at
❑❒❑❒ MarcusantROM Revival v1 ❑❒❑❒ - xda-developers
He seems to have broken his connection with ACS and moved on.

Re: Help me choose a custom ROM!

Yeah...I read about the split with ACS and Marcus...I'm still partial to the ACS ICS 5.5....don't care for his red theme. 5.5 is still pretty darn polished and very robust.

Coz

You'll need to recalibrate your battery since you also loaded a new kernel.

Dumb question.... How does one recalibrate the battery? I thought I read a while back about this but can't seem to find the information.

Re: Help me choose a custom ROM!

This is what I do after installing a new kernel and/or rom...and of course I'm sure it'll spark some debate:

  • Install said kernel and/or rom.
  • let the battery run down to at least 5%...the lower the better.
  • plug your phone in.
  • turn off your phone (while still plugged in).
  • remove your battery and do something constructive for a minute with your life...hug your kid...pet you dog, etc.
  • reinstall your battery and power up your phone (you'll probably notice your batter will read about 20%)
  • leave it plugged in till 100%
At this point (100% mark) I also go will reset the battery stats via clockworkmod.



Use as normal.



late,
Coz

When it booted up, it said 28%
