I think the battery life issues I was having were entirely the fault of SetCPU version 1.5.2 I'm currently getting between 2 and 4 hours per 10% drop in battery. It was at 60% from 1:12am to 5:27am (standby). 15 hours 53 minutes since I unplugged it, and I'm only down to 40% My setup: - 800Mhz LV kernel - deleted /system/xbin/pete - installed SetCPU 1.5.1a and set for max of 800, min of 250 For what it's worth, the frequency scaling options I used are the same as the /system/xbin/pete file would have set them to, but I wanted control using SetCPU and didn't want the task killing on boot that /system/xbin/pete does. I am *still* having issues with the CPU not going below 500Mhz on a fresh reboot, but it seems that after some time it is able to. Not sure yet why this is. As a side note - does anybody know what CALLS /system/xbin/pete? I can't find any reference to it anywhere - is it hard-coded in the kernel somewhere? I assumed it would just be appended to some other init script or something, but I couldn't find it.
