    Default problem after Redsnow
    Hi

    Bit of a strange one this but was hoping for some advise

    I have a 3G iphone running on 3.0 and i have Jailbroken it and running ultrasn0w.

    All is working fine but i have noticed that the battery life is very bad now. and i struggle to get a days use (Just calls) out of it. I was wondering if 3.0 is very draining on the iphone battery as i have Jailboken in and unlocked it from new and i had no trouble with 2.0, 2.2 and 2.21.

    Could you please advise and if there is anything that i can do as this is VERY annoying.

    Thanks in advance guys

    Did you "update" or "restore" in itunes?
    Did you set up as new or restored from backup?
    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

    Hi

    I did a restore from the FW downloaded from MMI and at first i backed it up from previous but had problems. so i did it again and set up as new phone? The thing is i have two phones (mine and my wifes) and they are both doing the same, so this makes me think that it is a firmwear problem.

    Turn Push off if you're hacktivated.
    Turn brightness down.
    Bluetooth off.
    Location Services off when you're not using it.
    Wifi off when you're not using it.
    3G off when you're not using it.

    All things you can do to help battery life. I find SBSettings makes doing all those things a lot easier.
