You're already at 1.1.1 and can't go backwards, so you have nothing to lose by trying and everything to gain. And You're welcome.
From what you've described so far, and again I don't know how long you've had this type of poor battery performance, but I don't think it's a new app or update that is causing the drain. I think it's an old app or fix you've installed before that is carrying over.
Good Luck and post back and let us know how it goes after you've done the clean restore & JB.

After reading all the reports of people having success with 1.1-1, I thought I should give it another try... but still no luck.
I was running all day yesterday with almost no battery drain, then last night I Jailbroke and installed ultrasn0w (1.1-1) - and now I'm back to 4% drain per hour

I was wondering if I should go ahead and upgrade this, I'm skeptical at the moment but think I may hold off. I'm on a 3GS with 4.0.1 with T-Mobile and my battery decrease isn't that significant. I'll have to keep an eye on it tonight when it's in standby mode overnight and see how much battery life is lost. Seems fine at the moment but I haven't paid that much attention to it. I do know that it's waayyy better than the battery life I had on my 2G, maybe that's why it's not that noticeable to me

well, i charged it last night before i was gonna jb it but fell asleep, for some odd reason the battery seems to be a lot better. i am assuming cycling the battery did it well because it went so low that the phone turned off, what i find odd is, i always cycle my batteries to 0% before charging them, and this is the 5th time since i updated ultrasn0w, so i guess 5th timeīs a charm? i did no other changes, and i seem to be getting a lot better battery life now, itīs down to 80% from last night and iīve given it heavier than avg day use wifi,browsing,cydia,appstore,etc etc, so hereīs what i can say from the experience
before you complain (like i did) of the new ultrasn0w, let the battery cycle a few times. let it drain to 0% then FULLY charge it, then notice if itīs better after a few times of cycling it, 5 in my case.

Hi I have a 3GS with blacksn0w, 3.1.2 and BB 5.11.07.
I tried to install this new ultrasn0w and to my surprise it did not worked at all.
After installing it, an error appeared saying error, and in the top left corner (on carrier section) said invlaid sim. So I came back to blacksn0w.
I'm confused,because I was thinking to move to 4.0.1 but now I'm scared if I can get stuck with no unlock. Any clue people?

I've recieved my PhoneBook SIM (or it should be), the weird part is that the SIM is all white, no brand, no nothing. Is there a way to know if this SIM will work before hand? I mean to know if this is the SIM's that should help me bypass the Emergency Call Screen.
Anyway, a couple of days ago I asked about a weird error I got. I have a 3GS 3.1.2 BB 5.11.07. It's unlocked with Blacksn0w. I tried to uninstall it and install the new untrlasn0w (1.1-1) however no matter how many times I tried it keeps searching and if I put on and off airplane mode I got "SIM Failure" popup and "Invlaid SIM" on the top left corner. I tried reseting network settings, hard reset (holding home + power) everything.
I'm afraid cause I want to upgrade to 4.0/4.0.1 but if I can't manage to get the unlock to work I will kill myself!!!!!
Any clue folks? RONERAVEN told me to ask the pros, where can I directly ask the pros???
