    Seemed solid at first now the battery is draining really quick. Typically, overnight with my phone idle, i would lose AT MOST 10%. After installing ULV 800 kernel, i was at 20% LEFT when i woke up today. Charged it full, and now after an hour of next to no use, its at 10%.

    When i go to battery use, android OS is at 60%, display at 17%(like i said, barely any use)phone idle 10%, cell standby 8%, scoremobile 3% and beautiful widgets 2%.

    Is it the kernel? Wouldn't think so. should i wipe battery stats?

    i wiped battery stats before or right after i flashed the kernel, so could it just be inaccurate right now?(i flashed the kernel last night)

    You can try those things - also, run 'mtop' in terminal and see if something is constantly hitting the CPU

    You are looking for the process listed at the top of the list - in that row it will say how much CPU % it is consuming ... just dump the output here ...

    I do not see anything there that jumps out at me - so I do not think that is the problem (unless there WAS something running that stopped before you tried this). I would keep an eye on it - everyone thus far is getting GREAT battery life out of this ROM ...

    probably nothing different but may be :).



    maybe its jsut because i wiped battery stats? do you recommend doing this?


    i Charged it until it said "charged" on the screen. Went to recovery, wiped stats then rebooted. Unplugged charger and went to bed. I woke up(8 or so hours) and i was at 20% when i'd normally be at 90% so it was odd. I do something wrong maybe? Could just be inaccurate so far but it dropped from 100% to 90% in 42 or so minutes. seemed really quick.

    I had the same problem with the 800 MHz ULV kernel. The battery always drained really quick. When I checked the battery history to see what was using it, it always had an extremely high % running time, greater then 50%.

    I don't know what caused it, I never did any troubleshooting. Instead I switched to the 1 GHz ULV kernel and ran it at 800 MHz. It fixed the problems I was having.
