    hi Drifter and Newdestinyx,First of all thank you for your consideration what could be my problem with the high battery consumption and the hot display.So I do not play with my phone and I do not look for hours, the animations on my display. On my SB I have the Uniaw6.3 scroll. (PerPage version). But I already had it as my battery has kept a very long time. Sorry, but the problems started when I loaded only on the battery and Ram file from drifters. Unfortunately then my iphone goes sometimes in the exit safe mod. But as other have downloaded these files and not have these problems, I guess I've done something wrong. That's why I also wanted to once again know exactly what I need to do first, second, third, etc. to clean to install the files.So I do not think that it is up to Steph's or Ian's Mod. But I will continue to try everything it finally runs smoothly for me too.

    Hmm. So the high battery consumption issue ONLY started when you loaded Battery/Ram stats iWidgets and their dylib files? Interesting.

    For what it's worth - I run Drifter/Matchtic's iWidgets and no problems here at all. There's definitely something unique to your phone and combination of tweaks, Scooter, that's causing your problems. That was my first feedback to you and I'm staying with my original assessment.

    Okay. I have it now. Just started running it on my LS.. I'll report back later today. I should say that I'm running the LS version from within LockHTML2 and not Winterboard. But that shouldn't make any difference in checking battery drain. It's still resources running.

    Been running Steph's LS now for almost 3 hours. Battery's moved from 91% to 85%. I assure you, Scooter, the problem is not with UniAW or Drifter/Matchstic's iWidgets. I'm running it all and a very complex UniAW SB widget. Nowhere near your battery drain. You'll need to look for an answer elsewhere.

    Ooo.. I should add to this discussion and experimentation - that I DO NOT yet have the RAM stats Dylib installed. ONLY the Battery Stats dylib and iWidget. Maybe that's also affecting my results compared to others.

    Currently running Steph's LS via LockHTML2 , and UniAW6.3scroll2 on my Springboard, with 3 of Drifter's Individual Elements and the Battery stats iWid also running on my SB.. I have no crazy battery drain nor any hotness in the back of my phone. That seems to isolate the problem to only the RAM stats Dylib & iWid - at least on j0k3r and Scooter's phones.

    Agreed, Drifter?

    Thanks for the information and testing everybody

    I did a little testing on my own today as well. I changed all my timings in both the RAM and Battery prefs and the Stats javascript to 1 second each. That means the dylib updates the txt file every second and the JavaScript queries the text file every second. Been running in that state on both my iPad Mini and my iPod Touch 4G since this morning. I don't seem to be getting any device slowdown, no major increase in RAM consumption and no major increase in battery consumption on either device. So I honestly cannot produce the high battery consumption or Heat that scooter and jok3r are experiencing by manipulating the timings to 1 second. If it were the RAM or Battery dylib tweaks or widgets by themselves, then setting it up with those timings should have produced a more noticeable effect on my two devices.

    So without knowing what tweak combinations are installed and the setup state on either of scotters or jok3rs devices, all I can do is now guess and surmise.

    If you suspect the RAM or Battery widgets and/or tweaks, try adjusting all the associated timing to higher numbers and see if that makes a difference. Maybe try running one of the default combined RAM and Battery iWidgets I posted and not run any UniAW at all to see if we can narrow it down some more. If that produces no difference, then uninstall the tweaks in Cydia and see if that helps. If it does help after uninstalling, then it appears to be some sort of conflict between the RAM and/or Battery and and a existing tweak common on both devices experiencing those issue. I just figured that it might be the UniAW mod because that was the only other thing in common.

    There's been 141 downloads of the battery widget and 78 downloads of the RAM widget as of 5 minutes ago and only a few posted issues issues with high battery consumption or Heat issues. If this was a common problem caused by the Battery or RAM dylibs and associated widgets, then I'm sure this thread would have exploded with more comments stating such.

    Again, without knowing the tweaks currently installed or how their devices are setup (Stats timings, push, Bluetooth, location service etc...), I can only guess as to what the issue might be. Makes it real hard to troubleshoot if I cannot reproduce those issues on any of my devices. Sorry you guys are experiencing issues, but I cannot pin it to the Ram or Battery tweaks either after my testing today. Something else must be going on with your devices, and I can only guess as to what it is.

    Alter re reading your post a couple times, I'm wondering how you got the RAM or Battery Stats installed.

    This is the part in confused about:

    Quote Originally Posted by scooterfips View Post

    What program are you using to unzip? For a Deb package, you shouldn't need to unzip anything. If you did manage to unzip the Deb package what did you copy and where? Something is amiss here, and I can't pin down how you managed to install it.

    --------------------------------------------------

    Here are some step by step instructions to perhaps in un-install and correctly reinstall the Stats tweaks correctly.

    1) Go to Cydia, find your installed BatteryStats and RamStats tweaks and remove them. Cydia will then prompt for a restart springboard.

    2) Use iFile on your device or a program called ifunbox (google it, its free) on your computer and browse to the following location:

    Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/ folder

    Make sure there is no BatteryStats.dylib, BatteryStats.plist, RAMStats.dylib, or RAMStats.plist there, if they are still there delete them.

    3) Now browse to the following location:

    var/mobile/Library/Preferences/ folder

    Make sure there is no BatteryStats-prefs.plist or RAMStats-prefs.plist files there, if they are delete them.

    4) now for good measure Reboot your device. The above steps should now clear your device of any previous installs of the Ram or battery tweaks.

    ----------------------------

    Steps to install both tweaks again, I recommend using your computer for the first 2 steps, then copy the files to you iPhone for the next steps to finish the install.

    1) From your computer, Download from the first post Matchstics 2 Deb files. You should have the following 2 files after you download them: "com.matchstic.BatteryStats_current.deb" and a "com.matchstic.RAMStats_1.1_iphoneos-arm.deb" That's the tweak install packages.

    2) Using ifunbox on your computer click on "Raw File System" and copy both files to your iPhone.

    3) Now use iFile on your iPhone and go to the / directory, you should see the 2 files you just copied.

    4) click on the "com.matchstic.BatteryStats_current.deb" file, you will see a Installer option, click on that, iFile will then install the Battery tweak and it's files to their correct locations and finish with a results:0.

    5) click on the "com.matchstic.RAMStats_1.1_iphoneos-arm.deb" file, you will see a Installer option, click on that, iFile will then install the RAM tweak and it's files to their correct locations and finish with a results:0.

    6) now that the tweaks are installed correctly into the right file locations, you will need to Reboot your device. This step will activate the tweaks and allow them to write the first txt files that we use to display your stats info.

    7) after you do your Reboot, you can confirm they are installed correctly by going to Cydia, then your installed packages and you should see the BatteryStats tweak, click on it and it should be version 1.3, now click on the RAMStats tweak, that should be version 1.1

    8) now that you tweaks are installed correctly you can adjust your timings for a more conservative mode.

    Browse to the

    var/mobile/Library/Preferences/

    folder using iFile.

    9) click onto the BatteryStats-prefs.plist, and open it with the Text Viewer option. Change the value between the <real> </real> to 30. (This will tell the Battery tweak to update its txt file every 30 seconds)

    10) click onto the RAMStats-prefs.plist, and open it with the Text Viewer option. Change the value between the <real> </real> to 30. (This will tell the RAM tweak to update its txt file every 30 seconds)

    11) respring your device, this will update the timing setting the tweak will now use.

    So this is how you correctly un-install and install the 2 tweaks and how to adjust their timings to write to the text files.

    ---------------------------------------

    Now download one of my combined iWidget versions, I recommend the mini static version for your next test.

    Copy the iWidget to your var/mobile/Library/iWidgets folder.

    Now open the iWidgets Javascripts/Stats.js using iFiles text viewer.

    You will see this a:

    refreshBatteryTimer line,

    edit it to look like this:

    refreshBatteryTimer = setTimeout(Battery, 30*1000);

    The 30 is your timer for the widget to check your battery.txt file and get the new info for your display. (This is now set to check every 30 seconds)

    Now scroll down a little further and you will see this a

    refreshMemoryTimer line,

    edit it to look like this:

    refreshMemoryTimer = setTimeout(Memory, 30*1000);

    The 30 is your timer for the widget to check your RAM.txt file and get the new info for your display. (This is now set to check every 30 seconds)

    Respring for the iWidgets new settings to update on your iPhone.

    Now you have your tweaks installed correctly and you set them to refresh their text files every 30 seconds and the iWidget will check those text files every 30 seconds.

    Run this setup for awhile to see it this fresh install and new timing settings helps

    But you would have to manually place the files into the correct locations then, right?

    Not the same as using iFiles installer. With Installer, It will unpackaged and place the files in their respective locations, set ownerships and permissions correctly and maintain symbolic links.

    The new Battery Deb file make a symbolic link of the BatteryStats.txt to its new location in the new Stats folder to maintain compatibility with the current crop of widgets, I don't think that would be preserved by unzipping and placing the files manually.

    I just download it and open in iFile. When the menu prompts up to zip viewer etc. There is a installer option. Click on that and let the deb file install.

    After that click done. Reboot your device. Make sure you have iwidgets. After that just enable like any other iwidgets on the springboard.

    I'm using the widget and I'm not having any issues at all. Even change the battery images here and there.

    hallo Drifter,
    thanks for the great instructions. I have not in var/mobile/libary/Preferences the BatteryStats-prefs.plist-only the RamStars-prefs.plist.
