Hey guys, first i apologize for the length of this. I am kind of at a crossroads right now and I just am not sure why. I am having problems settling on a ROM lately. There is something that causes me to switch each time. Most of the time it is battery related though there are quirky things too. I am trying to figure out on my end why I am not getting as good of battery life as some are suggesting they get on some ROMs and I have the Motorola Extended battery 1880. Over the past few months I have tried the following. Autokiller Memory Optimizer - and used EXTREME setting Cache Cleaner NG - to clear cache every morning Data Delivery Schedule for my Work Email (setup with exchange) - changed it from PUSH to FETCH every Hour I had JRummy's ROM Toolbox Pro and would try setting the following: * WIFI scan interval to 2 minutes (this is where I am confused too since I am in a WIFI environment most of the time why would I want to wait longer to connect to it. * Edit the Sysctl.conf settings I have tried applying the imoseyon tweaks to ROMs (apex rc3, shuji, liberty AOSP) . will they work on the blur ones like Darkslide X? I have also tried the JakeBites Mods most recently and I am not sure if those can be applied to any other ROMS I want to try. It seems like these are a one stop shop on mods in it. My phone is usually set up with 2 Gmail accounts, and my corporate email account (though its not a work phone). I do get about 50 emails a day from my work email which ultimately be the reason for the battery being used so much. But I am just wondering if there is anything different I can try. Does anyone know what is more efficient for battery, PUSH or FETCH? I have tried just about everything now(aside from MIUI, though I want to once it moves to the GB kernel). Case in point, I just put down SSM602 v2 yesterday and set it up the way I wanted (added email, apps) then took it off charger, used it a bit before bed and left it overnight at 90%. This morning went down and it was at 70% (about 8 hours) screen off. Looking at the battery use, my email was at 25% (more than my idle time) Just frustrated and wondering if I should even remove my work email all together. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
