    Default summerboard and battery life?
    anyone having problems with summerboard really killing ur battery? not sure if it is my problem program, but i'm in the process of deleting programs one-by-one to see which one is the problem. Prior to jailbreaking battery easily lasted 1 1/2 days, now about 8 hours with same usage. I even put as new battery in and same problem, so it not the battery.any suggestions guys? thanks!

    I'm quite certain that It's not SummerBoard, as it's not a background app; it modifies files and then the app switches off. Instead, look for applications that do run in the background and use WiFi or EDGE every so often. an example is MobileRSS or OpenSSH. Do you have OpenSSH installed on your phone? If you do, install Toggle or Services, and make sure you switch SSH to "off", and turn it on only when you need to. Otherwise, when it's on when you're not using it, the battery gets wasted by OpenSSH searching constantly in the background for a connection.
