    Is it just me?

    Is it just me or does the battery drains a little faster with this ICS upgrade? When I had the original Gingerbread on my Maxx my battery would last almost 2 days with no charge. I use my phone quite a bit through out the day. By the end of the night I was still at 50%. Now with ICS I have to make sure I charge at night because the phone is at 15%. Is there something different running on the background that I don't know of that is draining the battery?

    I found battery drain substantially worse with the ICS update. But I seemed to have cured it by using Matt's utility to do a clean .211 install. Battery life is closer to what it was on GB. And data reception has seemed to improve as well.

    How do I find that .211 install thing? Is it in the "Market"?

    I have had the opposite effect with the ICS upgrade (it was the best on the unofficial leak .75) but even on .211 and now .215 - my battery life is comparable to what it was with GB if not better.

    You can use Matt's Utility... Droid RAZR Utility 1.8 ...I think there is an additional update to this one, let me see if I can find it.

    Agreed. 215 leak with phone set to CDMA only my battery is actually better than it was on GB now that Android OS seems more efficient.

    OH WOW! Is this all with rooting the phone? I really need to read up on that process. I'm not that savvy when it comes to things like that.

    No you don't have to be rooted to install the leak, just download the zip to your ext-sd card and install it through stock recovery

    Oh I see. So I will need to connect the phone to computer right? Because I can't seem to click on the link that's in that other forum.
