Ok ever since I uninstalled uberkernel and the other patches from Mau to improve memory etc. My battery has been excellent. I kept govnah installed and changed the other settings like I/O to anticipatory and Tcp congestion to Westwood. So far no problems, when I had that other stuff installed I was getting the TMC error all the time.

Must admit I'm now thinking of totally flattening my Pre2 of all the extra crap I have put on it and go back to totally stock.

I now have a Playbook that does a lot of the stuff I used my Pre for far better so I really only need it now for calls, messaging and a bit of tethering.

With a +7 minute boot time...maybe I'm thinking about this too.

mine booted in 4:36 right after removing UK.
i then reinstalled UK, and my restart time (not counting shutdown sequence for both) was 5:24
i wanted to try stock, so i uninstalled again and rebooted. - 4:50
rebooted again: 5:15 (stock)

i dont have numbers for UK already being installed and set up

I removed SysCtl Optimization, Unthrottle DL Manager and maybe one other (don't think so) and my boot time is 3:51, however, it started booting Luna around 1-2 minutes. (quite possibly a one-time occurrence)

I removed Buttah, GPS Top Bar, and Mojo FPS Booster and got a restart time of 4:22 with Luna starting at 2:26.

From all this, (taking into account the non-scientific ways of this experiment) I think I can conclude webOS's boot time is a tad random. But I wouldn't know for sure.

<1:30!?!? That can't be right!

I may be wrong. I'll time it sometime today.

I just timed it: from completely shutdown, the boot time was 1:21 minutes.

That's pretty impressive, how'd you achieve that?

I have no idea. The only patches I have installed are:
add audio to sms
add clock to exhibition
add scrollbars to browser
Buttah
capture with volume keys
copy url to clipboard
export messages permission patch
mp4 video downloader
optimize clock for exhibition
Ringer switch icon
timestamps clean
Straight talk carrier string
unhide dev mode icon
unthrottle download manager
video downloads

15 patches- and no overclocking at all.

I'm just stunned....

I've got the following patches installed:

Advanced Options in Launcher
Battery Percent as Icon
Buttah
Custom Carrier String
Devicemenu Maxed Out Ultra
Maps Rebooting Patch
PDF Redux
Save Attachments to Downloads Folder
Unthrottle Download Manager

I also have 4 unknown packages installed...could they be slowing down reboot because they are unknown and webOS can't figure out what to do with them?

Clear Weather
CTC
Currency Exchange Lite
OpenTable

I've found things have got really slow and laggy since I installed UK and then uninstalled it. Hence why I need to get around to flattening it back to out of the box.

Seems to me a 50/50 thing for it to make a benefit. It either does or doesn't.

I finally gave up on mine.

It did the job for a long time, but lets face it, the pre2 is old news now. Screen was a too small, resolution was getting to be laughable, apps weren't "snappy" like the newest stuff out there, and some of the new voice-activated capabilities (like google's voice recognition) are really leaving the old pre in the dust. I sucked it up, paid the extra 10$ a month for the "smartphone", and swapped up to a fancy-pants mega-phone.

No regrets.

Good old pre2 was pretty solid though, have to admit it. Beat it up, dropped it, threw it, let my 3 year old play with it. Good piece of hardware (must better than my pre- and it's multiple silly replacements required every single time I so much as glanced at it).

I'm still holding on to my dev day Pre 2. After about a year I found I needed to replace the battery since the stock one would not keep a charge throughout the day. I got one of the Mugen Power 1400s and it has been fine for over a year. I have good days and bad days with battery life, mostly due to the radio hunting for signal in bad coverage areas.

The boot time is nowhere near the 5 minute mark, but I really haven't timed it to see just how long it takes to get up and running.
