lofreq:mrgsm021: Just flashed to ZSJV5 2.3.3, stock Asian ROM with SpeedMod K15G-T11-300Hz kernel.
Couple of questions please:
- GB is suppose to improve battery life or better battery management, is JuiceDefender still necessary?
- Can I still flash to the Vodafone BUJP5 modem on GB? Although so far having seen any issues on the JV5 modem, so not in a hurry to change.
Juice defender and things like Task Killers etc were never necessary from froyo - unless you are a really heavy user in a poor signal area. otherwise for the most part the processes it uses in memory turning your radios on and off can be more detrimental than you just toggling it yourself. all in all i believe it is "unnecessary" unless you find you are only getting 10hours use from your phone stock
and yes you can safely flash froyo modems over your GB roms, without drama - also yes, new modems does not automatically mean greater performance - they might not be best suited to the network strength here in nz, or your area, so you will have to test them out and monitor your signal strength using a widget and see how it performs
Thanks lofreq for your response, since I have only just flashed to the new ROM yesterday, I will see how it goes in terms of battery life. Also I have a Voda 2100 cell site about 10 metres from my house, so full reception at home always.
Again with the BUJP5 modem, will let the new ROM settle down and see, but good to know I can just flash it on GB without dramas, I have the CWM zip file in my external SD so I can flash it anytime.
Hoping to get SGS2 at the end of the month so won't be with the SGS for too much longer.
