    So ever since i started rooting my phone my battery life has gone down. I run BB 7.5. I have the setcup set at like 1ghz and 250mhz for the low end. the only widget i use is Weather Widget which is basically the HTC clock... Any suggestions.

    I am running the same set up and never have a single issue. My suggestion is to make sure that you manually lock your phone AS SOON AS you are done with it. Send a text, lock phone. Don't wait for the screen to time out.

    The odd thing is that i do that religiously... I am a freak about the power saving. How long does your battery last? I am a texting fiend btw and i have been off of school for a while due to the weather so maybe i am just reading into this all.

    my battery lasts as long as i'd expect it to. i'm actually pretty impressed.

    i'm rooted and run at 800mhz, 125/250mhz when idle and my battery life is great. i can go a full 8 hour day of work and still be at 90% when i leave.

    First what are you considering poor battery life?? How many hours are you getting and how much actual use (and doing what)... all these are HUGE factors.

    Second what governor setting are you using in SetCPU? Conservative is the best all around (least for my uses)... It gives better battery life AND better performance for me than 'on demand'.

    I have to report the exact opposite. Ever since i rooted (sholes 2.0.3) I have noticed considerable increases in battery life. I could never get through an entier day on one charege before, now i can. I'm OC'd to 800/250Mhz.

    One thing I noticed that kills battery life is gps, it can sometimes stay on, do you ever see the symbol for gps on the top bar on, yet you aren't using it for any particular app? I noticed that if I exited my browser while I was on Googles (google was also my default home page) home page that my gps would stay on, and that was because I had set my settings to Enable Location, when I turned that setting off, than all was good, battery life was back. I think that this was happening because the browser is constantly running in the background.

    I didn't use it all that much today. But yesterday I really beat it up and it lasted all day long.
