    Ok here is a couple thing first is wipe your battery stats. To do so fully charge the phone then either using my script,gscript wipe it then reboot.You can also do this using clockwork under advanced options. Now use it very lightly because it records run time data from the battery, I suggest doing i before bed and leaving it off charge all night. Now discharge it until it shuts off. Fully charge it back up and you are now done.

    There is also a file com.cequint.jar I removed in .2 that was in .1 other than that,the file structure is similar I made a zip installable by clockwork or rom manager to replace that file. It should not make a difference because it pertains to the city id bloatware app but if you want to experiment you can always remove it.

    I did the wipe stats at 100% charge from gscript and am currently letting mine drain. However, I think I found my issue(s). Too many things were updating automatically.

    6 hours since unplug
    80% battery life left
    Display 36% (Time On 33 min, Brightness all the way down, 30 second timeout)
    Phone idle 22% (Time On 5h 28m)
    Cell standby 18% (Time without a signal 0%)
    Voice calls 12% (Time On 3min)
    Android System 5% (115kb sent, 107kb received)
    Android OS 2% (7.5kb sent, 107kb received)

    I did the battery stats wipe and the dalvik wipe when I was at 100% last night before I called it a night. Left my phone unplugged all night. After 8 hours I am now at 90%...so far so good.
    I know squid had said to use phone lightly...I use my phone through out the day for work email, text messaging browsing etc.
    Should I keep that stuff to a minimum today?

    19h 11m 41s and I'm at 50%. That's with 30 minutes of call time, and the screen on for over 2 hours :D

    just what squid said in the first post.

    charge to 100%
    gscript > wipe batt stats > power off > power on
    let the phone drain until it powers off on it's own with MINIMAL USE
    *i actually set everything to stop automatically syncing (email, social apps, etc). then i set the display to lowest brightness. actually had to use it some to get it to finally die - it was looking like it would go forever!
    after it dies, plug in to charger, charge to 100%, enjoy.
