Ever since I jumped the Crackberry ship and acquired my Droid I have been amazed at the endless goodies available by a simple process called rooting. I started out with Pete's 1.0 and was extremely happy with the function. Then I upgraded to his 1.1 and still more goodies. One thing that my droid has lacked just like the rest of yours is battery longevity. I would charge at night and unplug at 0330 every morning and would have to plug back in around 1900 when I got home from work because I was down to 20-30%. I was doing good to get 16-18 hours. I did get 20-22 hours once I threw Pete's 1.0 and 1.1 on with and without setCPU. My main reason for running setCPU was so that I could set up profiles while charging, running on low battery, or defending a hot phone. I will admit I would get an hour give or take more just using Pete's script without setCPU, but I was ok with giving that up to get the ability of running profiles.
Jump forward to the release of BB V0.1. I installed as soon as I caught wind of Pete releasing last week. Just when I thought I had everything in 1.1 ol Petey boy graced us with his Froyo. I ran the stock kernel from his rom for a few days and was happy with the battery life, but I heard there was more to be had with a P3 kernel so I jumped in head first. I installed the 125-1100 kernel, set up setCPU to do it's thing, and the outcome made my mouth drop. Check out these numbers...
That is 27.5 hours with 30% battery left with fairly moderate use. Phone calls, internet browsing, Pandora for an hour or so, and around 10-15 sms/gtalk messages. My phone NEVER got over 100.4* F
Pete, you have outdone yourself bud! I am anxious to see what 0.2 has in store for us!
Credit goes out for the P3 kernels as well!!!
