    Ever since I rooted my DX the battery drains faster than a frat-house keg. I have the Liberty Rom with GO Launcher EX. I fully discharged my battery, then charged it to 100% and did a calibration; I changed the JuiceDefender setting from 'balanced' to 'aggressive', all to no avail. I charge the battery overnight and, each morning, by the time I check the sports scores, weather and Facebook (about 30 minutes or so) the battery has gone from 99% to about 84, 85%. If I don't charge it a couple of times during the day it'll be dead by dinner-time.

    It wasn't this bad pre-root. Any idea what can be causing this?

    Have you tried rebooting into recovery and wiping the cache partition?

    I wiped the cache yesterday and I'm monitoring the battery. It doesn't seem to be draining quite as quickly but it still seems to discharge more rapidly than pre-root.

    Thanks for the tip.
