3g on 3.0.1 J/B Battery issue
Hello, i have been jaibroken on my 3g running FW 3.0.1 since it has been available. All off a sudden yesterday my phone seemed warm and was losing battery power at an alarming rate. Now it lasts less than half a day in standby. I only send a few texts in my work day and its dead within hours. Please can someone offer some help?

^Strange. Make sure you turn off SSH and things of that nature when you're not using them.
If you think it could be a hardware issue, take it in to Apple and see what they'll do for you; a lot of times they'll swap it out no problem.Respect your elders.

I have everything that sucks power off unless i need it. I have a jailbroken phone on t-mobile that i bought off ebay so its not activated with att and i dont have the original purchase recipt. Will apple still swap it out?

Yep, they will if there's definitely a problem with it, which in your case sounds like it could be.
Have you tried restoring yet?Respect your elders.

actually just did a full restore and am in the middle of reinstalling everything. I had to set it up as a new phone because i know that 3x has issues with battery if you do it from a backup. Am depleting the battery now and going to give it a full charge and see what happens in the morning. Just strange it happened suddenly like that.

Yep... Hopefully it'll work out for you. Good luck.Respect your elders.

Whoo Hoo. Seemed to work well with a complete restore and setting up as new phone. A bit of a pain to have to go through it and still a mystery as to why it even started happening. Now if i can figure out why i have NEVER picked up a gps signal on this thing i will be good ;-)

Does it pick it up after the restore?
