Or just wait a day or two for your favorite rom to come out based on that source code.

I haven't done much research on custom ROMs after Gingerbread was released. Last I read, all of them still had issues with certain features (some with the camera, some with push notifications, etc). Is there one now that is known to be fully functional? Liberty perhaps?

No idea for droid x. We still havent had an official gingerbread leak on vibrant I'm still running it now that GPS is mostly working. But I only get 6 hours of battery life when power using (but it can idle forever). Its because we dont have the source code and are running I9000 drivers which work but eat battery. And the rom I'm on only works with a 1.42 Ghz overclocked kernel.

4G was officially turned on in my area today, but it's been on pretty solid all week. I'm getting 34mb download, 3.7mb upload speeds in my living room. Can't complain about that. Thank god for unlimited data though.

I've just gone to the Android Market (Droid Incredible 2), and have also found the battery life to be terrible. For essential apps, I'd have to say Advanced Task Killer, and Lookout Security. I've also added Google Voice, Google+, Google Goggles, Arcade by Kongregate, and Barcode Scanner.

Bar code scanner sucks, use scan life.

ATK should not be used on android 2.1 (2.0?) or newer.

I didn't get Scan Life because of the BlackBerry app that was horrid. Didn't think to get it again because of it. So far it has worked well. I may have to try the Scan Life app for Android and see though.

Apart from ATK, what would you recommend? I've looked at other task killers, and this one has worked fine. I'm running 2.3.3 (gingerbread??)

No task killers, the operating system does it properly as it is.

The stock software that phone came with is Froyo (2.2.1), but any task killer is not needed for any Android Froyo or newer.

I've tried running without task killers and all the apps keep self starting and never stop. I believe this is due to the resources each use, which can kill the battery quickly. I've not found a way to keep these apps from starting up, nor can I find a way to remove unwanted apps the carrier installs, which also use system resources. If you have any tips that make this work (or, I may just be doing something wrong) please shoot me a PM. I'm new to Android, and haven't had much time to research anything.

As an example: If I look at my current running apps, I have Mobile IM, Skype Mobile, Arcade by Kongregate, etc.. which I haven't used at all today. (I don't even have a Skype Mobile account). These keep starting on their own. I can go to the Settings>Applications>Running Applications and "Force Stop" each of these individually, but they will start again on their own anyway. Alternatively, I can just leave them running, and in half a day, I will need to recharge my battery, which I cannot do at work. (no plugs, and we are not allowed to attach anything to our computers.)

I have found that the task killer does allow me to stop all these apps at one time, and haven't found a better way to do it. Any help would be appreciated.
