    It depends on the recovery you are using. For example I use RZR and when installing a new rom I use the wipe all function. This includes wiping battery stats and as a result I usually make sure that my battery is fully charged before I go into recovery to do the install.

    But regardless of recovery you need to make sure that you have a full charge on your battery. I always let it charge for about an hour after it hits 100%, not necessarily a requirement but it works better for me this way. Then boot into recovery, in RZR the option is in Wipe Options > Batt Stats, and its been a while but I believe on CWM it was in advanced options. Select the option, then boot back into android.

    Now just let your battery run out, I always wait til it shuts itself off. I also normally try not to reboot or go into recovery when I do it. Follow that by charging it fully without removing it from the charger and you should be good to go.

    Good info, will do.

    This is great advice, though I was already monitoring those stats, but since my phone is FOR SURE not sleeping properly (terrible %'s of running to screen on, etc), and hasn't been for 1.7, 1.8, 1.85, or 1.9, I've tried them all and had this issue, any idea how to FIX it?

    What kernel are you running? Either way that is the first thing I would advise trying, in fact, believe it or not, if you are currentlt using a low voltage kernel, to alleviate the issue , u may have to go to a medium voltage kernel, in fact thats what I would try first, try a medium voltage kernel, run that for a day or so doing the same things I had mentioned above, For me personally I have always had very good luck with Chevy's kernels, maybe flash one of his medium voltage kernels, in addition when you flash one, when.in recovery just before you flash the kernel, wipe the the cache, (i usually wipe the dalvic cache as well) then flash the kernel.....

    Running rModv1 kernel. 1.9 Liquid. Also have setcpu set at 800 - 250... had several callsand texts. Great battery life in my opinion. Make sure you wipe wipe wipe. Restored all from app market no problems. Other apps I installed with titanium backup. Like Netflix etc... love this rom best for my Droid. If anyone's having problems my advise is make sure you wipe everything even reboot into recovery and wipe again. Then install. Also using RZR 2.0.3 RECOVERY

    I'm using Corcor67 elite v2 1.1ghz lv. It runs super cool, EXTREMELY fast, and EVERYTHING works with it. I've gotten 10+ hours with moderate to heavy usage, and im still on 60% I'm currently on LGB 1.9 and i have no issues with anything, especially battery life. I use setcpu...Have it set to 1.1ghz-500mhz on SmartMod (screen on..and/or charging). 700mhz- 250mhz (Battery <21%). 500mhz-250mhz (screen off).

    I was running the stock that came with 1.9. In the past I'd tried CorCor and RZR. Chevy's kernel's have always put my phone in a bootloop when combined with Liquid.

    I just installed the low voltage chevy 1.0GHz, and as expected it bootlooped. I then installed the medium, and it booted. I wiped the caches as you suggested before installing the kernels.

    Thanks for the suggestion and hopefully it will work, but how will the voltage of the kernel affect my battery?

    Even though all d1 are the same phone so to speak, its impossible to make all the internal hardware components 100 % identical, and so I imagine some hardware components in one droid may have more "resistance" (electronically speaking) than another droid & to low of a voltage kernel may now provide enough "juice" to keep all the coponents running smoothly, causing a bit of "confusion" within the android os cauzing it to continuously ping the system checking things, Have you tried one of CorCor' elite v2 medium voltage kernels yet? if not maybe give that a try, & I also believe that Pete actually has some increased voltage kernels in his v.02 releases.....also cvpcs has some older increased voltage kernels, still floating around, though those most likely cause the now seemingly common usb/pc file transfer issue to occur, but there is a roundabout fix for that to, & honestly if this cant be tracked down to a kernel issue, at this time im a bit stumped.
