Thnks for the tut. Do you know if the phone needs to be rooted to perform the installation of Clockworkmod, or is the above tut for unrooted ACE ok as well.

    Ok i went through all the queries, First of all i am sorry for replying late i have very less access to net even to see the youtube comments. So here it is.

    1. Your needs include” Recording, Radio, Video , Songs, Video Making, Picture Taking.” Believe me i have used all sorts of roms till date, with just data usage like on fb, foursquare, twitter, maps and bit of camera my battery drains in just 1 day. So the battery life depends on your usage habits, more you use the lesser the battery.
    2. Stock Roms are obviously stable but the post is bit old now and the cynogen mod based custom roms are not bad either.
    3. The auto forward feature I do not remember(never used). I use Go SMS, available free in market and its superb.
    4. I am presently using Sanginger Ace(covered in previous posts) Its very light and stable.
