    Will do, going to check that up on xda, I think it's fairly easy to use there.

    What Task Manager would you recommend? I search for "task manager" in the Market but it comes up with lots of task killers.

    Been having problems with battery life without using a task killer, I know people say not to use them, but I use it manually, I didn't set it up automatically. It seems like the only thing that works for me, not sure how else I can conserve battery without it.

    Turn off auto sync on background and social network apps.

    I'm not gonna download any UI mods to my DInc until I find out if its going to get upgraded or not. I read somewhere theres still a chance it could update to stock Gingerbread, which would be awesome. If it doesnt I may take the plunge on a mod

    Hey Peetie, trust me I crippled my phone to the max, auto sync off, brightness as low as I can get and be comfortable with, GPS off, bluetooth off, these ROMs do a little work.

    Edit: Sorry NYranger didn't see DInc as your phone, thought you had the g2x as well. Droid incredible I believe has stock gingerbread? If not, who knows when they'll upgrade. They usually take awhile.

    no it has sense with froyo. At Google I/O this year they said phones that can handle 2.3 will be upgraded within 18 months or something to that effect

    Sweet, Sense is pretty nice. Yeah I'm patiently waiting for gingerbread for g2x, T-mobile promised it to us "by summer" still upset that it's not available yet.

    I have LauncherPro. I like it a lot better than Sense.
