Mcal24 - how is your battery life doing over the last couple days?
Sorry for not responding in a while, I basically gave up. Now I want to try again. The battery still is having some drops and sometimes won't get through the day, no where near like it was when I got it. A few days ago, I factory reset my phone, and after using it a day, the battery might have been a little better, but it still had a 10-20% drop off. Since I reset my phone, do you think this means the problem might be on my sd card, as that is the only thing I didn't wipe? I also have my phone rooted now. Thanks!
Do you know what app/process is draining the battery? Sometimes is weird things that you would never suspect. Did you put all the apps back on after the FDR? You could move your SD card contents to your computer, format it and then put the items back on. I think a corrupted file could cause battery drain by mediaserver continuously trying to read the file. My last battery drop turned out to be Viber. GSam now tells you what app/process is keeping the phone awake which is a giant help in trouble shooting battery issues. That was how I found out Audio_Out2 was my culprit keeping the phone awake. Believe me I know how frustrating this can be! Took me weeks of trying to figure out what was using the battery on mine. I know nothing about rooting so I am of no help there.
It still says kernel is at the top, and yesterday my held awake time under kernel was 10 hours. I had to format my SD card earlier because it became corrupted, so I backed up files to my computer and formatted it. Apparently that didn't make a difference. This screenshot is at the beginning of my battery life, so its probably not as accurate yet.
Your kernel time is not that much. See the little gray arrow under the clock on your image? Tap that on your phone and choose "view time held awake". See what is at the top of that. The kernel has to run - the phone doesn't run without it. My kernel right now is at 24.7%.
I'm not an expert on flashing roms but there are plenty of threads on here for that.
I did receive 3 different replacement phones from Verizon and all three phones had the same battery drops. I literally tried everything with them. I did meter calibrations right out of the box. Didn't download any apps. Didn't root the phone.
They sent me a brand new razr. It still had ics on it. I updated to jelly bean and started having issues. I ended up buying a used maxx with a broken screen off of eBay. Switched the battery's and the chassis and have not had a problem. This was about 2 weeks ago. Other razr users are having the same problems with battery drops. It might be a software issue with the smaller batteries I'm not sure.
If I find any info I will get back to you.
