    My battery will drain in 10 minutes or less...WTF?!

    Running .211 while rooted. Three weeks ago, my battery started doing this thing where it would last 5 hours then get to 50%, then just drop to 5% then last another hour then die. Today it will now die after only 10 minutes even though it is fully charge. I have tried the following to trouble shoot:
    • downloaded GSam Battery Monitor. The number 1 drain on the battery is the Kernel.
    • Did a battery calibration with stock cable and charger.
    • factory reset....not fixed.
    • Last resort: Reverting to stock, unrooted .211 or updating to the leaked .215.
    Verizon is willing to do a warranty replacement but since I'm rooted, I fear they will charge me for the cost of replacing the phone. Has anyone has this ridiculously rapid battery drain issue?

    Foxkat would probably be more helpful, but I'm guessing the battery is in deep discharge. I don't really know if there's a way to bring it back from that. Foxkat will know what to do

    Flashing .215 leak didn't help.

    I flashed the leaked .215 ROM using Matt's Utility and I"M STILL HAVING THIS PROBLEM. Screen shot below shows the phone 26 minutes after being unplugged from charging to 100%.

    I turned off my data connection to see if that would fix things...it didn't.

    But even with data off, you should still have phone signal. If you are in an area with no service (some buildings don't do week for getting service) your phone is desperately searching for a phone signal (not the same as data signal), then it will suck your battery big time.

    That's what I was thinking. One thing you could do is put your phone in airplane mode and see if the battery improves

    I think it would take a lot less battery in airplane mode since it wouldn't have to maintain a connection. But you wouldn't get texts or calls that way either
