    Default Serious Battery Drain After Jailbreak
    Pardon my noobness if this has been covered. Im having some major battery draining after my jailbreak. I have about 7 JB themes and hardly any JB apps. I went to sleep last night (6 hours) with my battery at 90% and when I woke up it was at like 68%. before the JB, I would only lose maybe 10% at most. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.

    A lot of people are/were complaining about that. Make sure you are running the latest ultrasn0w (if you are unlocked that is), otherwise you're options are either restore and try again.... or use stock firmware
    If I somehow helped you, press thanks

    Or you can close out all the apps that are open (In the little multitasking bar). That helps me a little bit.

    Also I like to turn off 3G (Since i'm in my house and I'm on WiFi) and I turn off SSH(If I'm not using it) through SBSettings. This helped my battery life a little bit.

    And you can also do what neodude237 said if you've unlocked your phone.

    Did mine yesterday, last night battery was at 98%, this morning at 92%.

    Had that problem a few weeks ago, battery draining. Try reinstall jailbreak.

    do not reinstall jailbreak without restoring first, it is never recommended to run one jailbreak on top of another

    I wish I could have that. Lowest brightness, wifi off, no themes, and I get like 2 hours max. I guess that's what I get from an iPod Touch 1G. I don;t mind, I just use it for testing apps anyway.
