    Im not sure if this will help your situation, but they help me extend my battery life. I dont use auto brightness. I keep my brightness fixed at about 25% above the lowest setting. Only turn on bluetooth/wifi when needed. Turned the screen timeout to 15 seconds. Stock was 1 minute. You can also try 30 seconds if more timeout is needed. Turned flash off on camera, I turn it on only when i really need it. All this has netted me 30-36 hours with minimal use, 16-20 hours with heavy use. Unfortunately everyone has different definitions for minimum and maximum use so your results may vary.

    If you never use bluetooth or Wifi, Keep it off, it does drain the battery just being on. Turn it on just when you need it. I never turn off my GPS but if you can get away with turning it off then be my guest. I use alot of "location aware" apps, so that being off would cause more issues for me. Also, No, The camera flash does not drain just being on, only when i picture is taken and its actually used. I recommend shutting it off because if you take alot of pictures with the phone the flash will take a toll on the battery, If you rarely/never use the camera its really not a concern for you.

    Have you considered that your batter is old and you might need a new one? I say this because I was in your situation just a couple months ago. After having my D1 for over a year (and being rooted and overclocked for nearly all that time) I was struggling to get to 12 hours without having to charge my phone. I tried every trick/tip I could think of to increase battery life but it didn't seem to matter. So I ordered a new battery from Amazon (got one for less than $5 with shipping). Since putting in the new battery I have had no issues. I'm back to 20+ hours on one charge.

    What cpu governor are you using? I suggest using conservative. Also, take a look into sysctl configuration tweaks with this app.
    https://market.android.com/details?i....sysctl.config

    Put in
    Minfree 4096
    Dirty Ratio 90
    Dirty background 70
    VFS Pressure 1
    Checkmark OOM allocating
    Choose apply at boot just to make sure the settings stick. Then finally apply. That SHOULD help battery some.

    There is an extra 'f' at the end of your link. I clicked the link, noticed it ended in htmlf. I deleted the 'f' and the link worked.
