    4.9 and battery problems

    Anyone else having TERRIBLE battery life after upgrading to 4.9?
    This is the first real issue I've had with a Chevy ROM since I got my droid.
    Background: Life was great with 4.8, installed over top, now it is very bad. Using the kernel the ROM came with, just like I always do. I don't use anything but Chevy ROMs, but it looks like I gotta go back to 4.8, unless someone can suggest something for me to check.

    Try a full wipe and reinstall. I installed a kernal from 9/23 with the interactive gov instead of the one it came with. unplugged at 6am this morning with light to moderate use and at 70% at 4:15pm.

    I've been running a couple of chevys kernels, and on my D1 if I overclock past 800 mhz my battery life goes down hill fast. Right now i'm running his latest 1.2 ghz lv kernel but only clocking it to 800 mhz and getting much much better battery life.

    13 hrs, 23 mins unplugged and I'm at 50% battery left.

    Light use but a TON of email via Touchdown. I get pounded with email all day from work.

    This is kinda common, boot up in recovery if you have clockworkmod recovery, go to advanced, and choose wipe battery stats.

    What does this do? First I've heard of it but I get terrible battery life so I'm intrigued.
