    Default Springtomize 2 question
    Ive been reading & searching trying to find something concrete on why my battery drains so quick.Ive found a few discussions on the problem,some saying Winterboard,others say Springtomize 2.Im wondering if anyone else out there is having dramas with battery drain while its installed?Should i swap it out for seperate tweaks (5 icon dock,iconoclasm,etc)?Would like to know your thoughts on it :-S

    My friend had Springtomize 2 & then uninstalled it due to battery drain and is running his tweaks separately...said his batt life is better. I was under the impression S2 is like having the ability to run a fair amount of tweaks under it by itself.

    I don't run S2 and my 4S lasts a day at the most with WinterBoard. Locations zap the battery I think. Maybe have 15 tweaks on my phone...

    Keep us posted on what you do and the results

    Since my last post,i done a fresh install as new phone.Installed seperate tweaks(5 icon dock,nonewsisgoodnews,iconoclasm,etc),and did not install Springtomize 2.Im now getting 16+ hours with 7+ hours of usage (im a heavy user-lots of ipod,texting,calls,etc).Best i have gotten was 27hrs standby with 9hrs usage.Im now enjoying my battery again,so for me,Springtomize 2 wont be making it back on my phone again

    Cool gd to hear! Thought that was the case. I'm pretty sure u can get around the tweak situation without S2. Less IS more!

    I really don't think your problem was S2. I believe it had more to do with the restore than anything. Why not install it again and turn off the other tweaks and then see what you get. Also making calls does not mean heavy usage. Phone calls actually use very little battery. Try reducing the brightness of your screen, that would have a larger impact.
