  1. Has anyone faced significant battery drain on their 3gs/3.0/32gb/redsn0w0.8/ultrasn0w0.91-1 ???

    I didnt know what was causing the battery drain coz i had turned off all services like wifi/ssh/3g/edge/bluetooth

    I had also turned off push and notifications but still the drain was constant and i noticed the drain when in sleep/lock mode.

    My brand new 3gs used to last only 2 days after very little usage per day (like a few phone calls 15mins of wifi and 15mins of gameplay)

    Now when i read the below bug fix of 1.1 of battery control, i am wondering if the drain was eventually battery control or not:

    – Fixed some potential battery drain issues.

    Can anyone plz confirm the above?

    Thanx, in advance.

      In version 1.0.x, I was listening for notifications and based on some anecdotal evidence, it seemed to drain the battery a little faster. I removed that code in favor of some more efficient battery reading methods. There was no scientific proof of battery drain, though. That’s why I said “potential” battery drain.

  2. Experiencedheavy battery drain on iPhone 3G, redid JailB but restored phone in iTunes before that AS NEW PHONE, not from backup. JB with redsn0w + FW 3.0, read instructions carefully , battery now good 

  3. Anyone notice you cant turn off battery showing while charging? With the last version, i was able to hide the battery completely and show just the number.

    When i toggle battery on and off or percentage it just toggles the number on and off, it doesnt actually turn off the battery icon.

    Other than that, works great..
