Thread: iPhone 4 Battery DRAIN!! After Jailbreak.

  1. #221
    I have the iPhone 3GS and just jb it last week. And I noticed my batt life drained very quickly. So what I tried was when I'm not using the phone I cut it off by the top button. And use sbs to cut all the programs off. Except phone and mail. I seem to get great batt life now

    I would hate to say Rock is also contributing to the battery drain, but since I have a license for both MyWi and My3g, I'm stuck using that installation method. Right now I'm beginning to think the battery drain is associated with the latest version of Mobilesubstrate

    =================

    LATEST BATTERY CONSUMPTION STATS

    Iphone specs: i4, 4.0.1, JB'd
    software installed: MyWi, My3G
    Mobilesubstrate version: 3226

    ----

    Although its still to early to tell, I'm already seeing an improvement in standby battery consumption since downgrading my Mobilesubstrate to 3226. I've stayed at 86% for 2 hours now, which is good compared to my previous results at about -3% per hour. I will post again as the day wears on.

    I'm going to guess that from your list afc2add and Backgrounder would be my personal top suspects just from reading about them. You might try killing just those at first to see if that resolves things for you.
    I have uninstalled Backgrounder, since it really didn't do anything for me. Didn't really use it. The programs I really need to have "in the background" are already supported natively.

    But so far, it hasn't helped. Still dropping 1% every 3-6 minutes :-(

    See what i mean ?

    Is anyone here have the battry issue without having cut the sim himself ?
    My SIM is cut but I coated that side with 3 coats of nailpolish to prevent it from touching the tray. Same problem.

    I'm not using ultrasn0w but I'm running mobile substrate. I've got winterboard running various adons and sbsettings, activator, iconoclasm, infinidock, infinifolders, quick reply and shrink all installed. 26 hours from my last charge and 24% battery left.

    Unfortunate. Out of curiosity, can you go into SBSettings and tell me what your MobileSubstrate Addons are? I have at the moment:

    Activator
    IntelliStatusIconsVi...
    MyWi
    PreferenceLoader
    enablettydebug (off)
    libhide
    pdfExploitWarner

    if you have anything not on that list I'd be curious to know what it is.

    my friend just tested his and he got 17min 45sec sitting on the homescreen for the battery to go from 100% to 99%.

    can we agree that mobilesubstrate is the culprit?

    I'm beginning to think it is.

    My stats for going down 1% using the previous 3226 MS are as follows:

    10:32
    86%
    usage 1h 10m
    stby 3h 2m

    1:20
    85%
    usage 1h 21min
    stby 5h 50min

    ---

    Thats roughly 3 hours of standby for -1%, including 10 minutes of usage. I'm much happier with these numbers as compared to 3228's.

    Yeah, my phone burned about 10% or so overnight :/ (8-9 hours)
    If I somehow helped you, press thanks

    On my fresh 4.0.1 install my battery has gone down 6% after 25 minutes usage and 1 hour 29 of standby. The phone has been jailbroken but cydia hasn't even been launched once yet. Nothing has been installed through it.
    I'm not sure what it could be then, does mobile substrate get installed during the JB process?
    Edit: push is off, mail set to fetch hourly, location services off and the 25 minutes was very light usage.
    My phone doesn't have a bad battery as well, pre JB I would consistently get 36 hours standby and many hours usage.

    Sure, I have:

    Activator
    Cyntact
    DisplayStack
    FiveIconDock
    IconSupport
    Infinifolders
    IntelliStatusIconsVi... (rest is cut)
    LockInfo
    LockInfoMail
    LockInfoPhone
    MyWi
    PrefenceLoader
    biteSBarClient
    biteSMSsb
    enablettydebug (off)
    libhide
    libstatusbar
    pdfExploitWarner
    removerecents
    ToneFxInject

    I have also installed the 3226 version of mobile substrate for comparison.

    Any of the above know to be hoarding battery?

    Oh and thanks to everyone chipping in with info, somehow there has got to be a solution to this problem (no JB doesn't count :-)

  12. #232
    I'm pretty sure it's a problem with mobile substrate, as mentioned in my previous post i haven't installed anything with cydia yet my battery is still decreasing rapidly.
    It's dropped another 5% in the last 30 mins!

    Default /usr/bin/sbsettingsd still present after uninstalled SBSettings
    I've been having the same battery drain on iphone 4 with 4.0.1 after jailbreak ... I cannot isolate the problem as well.
    Something interesting .. when I uninstalled SBSettings I can still see the daemon active:

    Im thinking something else may be up, I don't have sbsettings OR the unlock installed, left phone plugged in overnight, check in morning, at 94%, so I unplug, replug, go to bathroom and come back and it's 100%...something is ******* with the battery....now I had a different iphone 4 originally but it was shutting itself off and into recovery if left alone with the screen off for 3-4 hours, sometimes quicker, replaced it and now this.

    Why am I getting command not found when trying to run PS via iSSH? Is there somewhere I have to set the path?

    You need to install ps via Cydia

  16. #236
    I tried surfing the web on my iPhone 4 4.01 using the 3G net.

    Here's how it went:

    23:05 = 43%
    23:10 = 42%
    23:13 = 41%
    23:17 = 40%
    23:21 = 39%

    All while browsing and reading, ie. it wasn't transfering data all the time. That's a 4 percent decrease in 16 minutes equalling to approx. 400 minutes of surfing. In some ways, that's actually not so bad, but if it drains power like crazy with an MSN client in the background, what good is the phone then? And the thing is, if it's much better before jailbreak, there HAS to be something after the jailbreak that sucks that power. Either the actual jailbreak (not so likely) or some specific apps/combination of apps.

    Ah adv-commands, got it, mine looks exactly the same but I don't have the sbsettings daemon still after I uninstalled it.

    I've been dealing with drain since jailbreakme.com. My findings:

    reverting mobile-substrate to .3226 or .3225 definitely impacts battery drain and helps a great deal, but then you have to deal with the Maps app issue...

    My wife and I have the same phone, 3gs, @ 4.01. Hers in not JB'ed. I reverted my JBed phone to mobile-substrate .3226, disabled ssh, 3G Unrestrictor, debugtty but left on BT, WiFi, Location, & push for Gmail. Charged both phones to 100% and left them for three hours. After 3 hours, both showed 100%. @ 5 hrs my phone dropped to 99%, @6, 97%. My wife's phone stayed @ 100% the entire time - no phone calls, no usage, just standby, the phone laying next to each other.

    So if you need mobile-substrate, .3226 is the version you should use as that gets you much better battery life. I've uninstalled mobile-substrate and all extensions and am using the BT tethering for now until these things get worked out.

    Even without mobile-substrate installed, battery life is close but not on par with no JB. For some reason, it holds it's own for awhile, but if you start using the phone in this state, battery starts dropping @ %1 an hour roughly.

    Using .3225 vs .3226 I could not discern any drain improvements, so stick with .3226. sbsettings seems buggy with .3226 so keep that in mind as well.

    In regards to having sbsettingsd still loaded, uninstall all sbsettings packages and then do a hard-reset and it'll go away. This will also take care of multiple instances of mDNSresponder.

  19. #239
    I removed /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.bigboss.sbsettingsd.plist and rebooted from command line.
    After reboot daemon did not come up and file /usr/bin/sbsettingsd dissapeared.

    Will see if battery usage will become closer to normal now.

  20. #240
    Before they came out with Mobilesubstrate 3228 I had reverted to 3209
    That did not have the maps issue
    I wonder how that would affect power
