    Default severe battery drainage....
    Im running an iphone 3GS
    jailbroken with purplerain.
    i have MMS working
    i have 3G turned off most of the time, only on when i need it.
    i have all other things turned off. (extra processes like mail and ipod running in the background)
    no push anything.
    ive got bite mms working as the default messaging app.
    themes running.
    ect. normal jailbreak stuff.

    but my battery keeps draining like CRAZY

    i restored this morning to try and solve it.

    any ideas? maybe its a defective battery..

    I had the same issue after the purplera1n j/b. I had to take my phone in already and get it exchanged, my phone was getting no signal 90% of the time and my battery would drain from full to under 10% within around 5 hours. I also noticed that my phone wouldn't auto-lock even though it was set at 1 minute. I don't think I'm going to j/b again for a while because of these issues.

    i just jailbroke. no nothing though.
    didnt add packages or apps with cydia. just jailbroke.

    it was fully charged at 530
    and now its 9 and im at 93%
    3G on
    with intermittent texting. send about 30 in that span
    so i think its something i was using...
    just installed bitesms and mobile substrate.
    will see what happens when i use it for the same thing.
    3.5 hours with intermittent texting.

    will get back to you if i find that a package is causing battery drainage

    my 3gs sucks battery bad too, please let us know if its a package or something. I mean, i AM on the thing like crazy but......it shouldnt be this bad. I just dont wanna go thru the hassle of rejailbreaking and re downloaded EVERYTHING

    hmmm well after a few different trials.
    i currently am using 3.5 hour slots.
    ive done it 3 times to make sure.
    i was completely stunned.
    installing mobilesubstrate and bitesms actually landed me at around 95% on average.
    while without my trials were around 93%
    im gunna go ahead and say i made a mistake and that mobilesubstrate has no large impact on battery performance because it helping battery live just doesnt make sense.
    so next test. im gunna go with SBSettings now

    will get back to you on the results

    i ran one trial with SBSettings. lost alot of battery.
    only one trial though so i wouldnt trust it.

    Apple told me to go and upgrade to the 3.0.1
    said that would help

    3.0.1 won't help, it's just the SMS fix.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    really? ive heard from multiple places that it has a management fix.
    some people (not everyone)
    had terrible battery life on 3.0 compared to 2.2.1
    i just went to 3.0.1 (jailbroke with redsn0w at angie's request lol but prurplera1n doesnt work for 3.0.1 which is weird)
