I want to mention battery life. I installed juice defender on my phone a couple days ago and with the combination of that and your rom, I was able to get an entire day without charging my phone. I am a construction manager and my day starts at 5am in the office end ends around 6pm. I am on the phone either talking or checking email all day. Before now I always had to plug my phone in after about 4 hours.
I've been a member on XDA for a while. I wish I had found this rom before flashing to stock JH7 and customizing it. Now I have to spend my night tonight flashing what looks like an incredible Froyo rom.
I've tried both JK3 and JPY - they are both amazing and fast. A word of caution though, if you've installed JPY and back up your apps and system data with Titanium backup, you'll get errors if you try to go back to JK3 and restore your apps. Mostly because "system data" contains all the system apps like Maps, Phone, Contacts, Messaging, SWYPE, etc.
I tried JK3 for a while but kept getting Force Close because of this. I switched back to JPY and all is well again.
Hey Dorian, I noticed that you added BLN support to Version3, which is cool. Have you tried to mess with the amount of time the button backlights stay on? That's my biggest complaint about the phone - when I use it at night, I need more than 3 seconds before the buttons go dark. (I'm starting to get used to where they're located, but I'd rather just see what I'm pressing)
