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.

@NewDestiny Yep that's something to be noted I'm sure. Might add to the difference.The theme in my posts is 3 4 All, by Sk37cH.
The numerous versions released, and infinite versatility, beats IconOmatic mods. By quality.

Thanks for the information and testing everybody
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.

This is the part in confused about:
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:
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:
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
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.
You will see this a:
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
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

If you select in ifile, it will unpackage just like a zip file if you go that route.

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 agree with ya bro. I was just pointing out that it is possible. Not very efficient, but possible.
07-04-2013, 10:50 PM #273
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."I have no answers, just useless questions."

thanks for the great instructions. I have not in var/mobile/libary/Preferences the BatteryStats-prefs.plist-only the RamStars-prefs.plist.
otherwise I stuck exactly to your instrctions and will Report back if I still have the Problems. Many thanks again for your help.
Great, it works. No hot iphone and the battery consumption is back to normal. Thank you, Thank you, Thank Drifters.Following your instructions everything worked out really good.I think the mistake was to unpack the.

Installed the battery tweak and now I can't get out of safe mode. A little concerned.
Edited. Had to run a terminal command to force it out of permanent safe mode. Unfortunately I can't run the tweak. So sad.
Edited V2. Ok I tried it again and so far so good. I just hope it's stable.

I had a safe mode loop myself, but thought it was a combo of things I was testing. But removing the batt tweak fixed it.
