    1. Are you one of the people who concerns themselves with battery life???

    2. Do you want to help Team Liberty make Liberty the best ROM with the best battery life?

    If both of these are true then read on...


    I am attempting to tweak Liberty to enhance battery life... these tweaks, if they work well will make their way into the next release..

    People who participate will be asked to follow the rules and directions in this post and will also be asked to report their battery life improvements.



    1st... Some of the tweaks will involve changes to the framework-res so I will ask that you run only the default theme... I include a circle battery icon so we can track the usage better (credit to Tom108 for the images)

    2nd... I will need you to wipe your battery stats..

    3rd.. Please do not overclock or underclock your processor while running these tests


    So lets get started

    Install LibertyBattweak.zip
    Download the LibertyBatteak.zip within this thread and save it to your sdcard
    Open Liberty Tools and select -->reboot options-->Reboot Bootstrap
    Select -->mounts and storage-->mount /system
    you should now see unmount /system in its place
    backout to the main menu by pressing the power button
    select -->install zip from sdcard-->choose zip from sdcard-->"locate the file you save to your sdcard"
    after the install is complete reboot


    Wiping Battery stats
    Charge your battery to 100%.
    Open Liberty Tools and select -->reboot options-->Reboot Bootstrap
    Select Advance--> Wipe Battery stats
    Unplug your phone and select reboot.
    Leave your phone unplugged and fully drain the battery. (Do not plug it back in, not to power nor your computer. Make sure it’s dead by trying to turn it back on)
    Leaving the phone off, plug the phone back in and let it fully charge without interruption.

    Already getting what I consider to be great battery life with the oem extended battery, but will try this out for a few days. Love the circle icon, I was actually trying to make one like that in ninja but never did get finished changing colors. Thanks!

    Subscribing for battery results. If people report noticeable improvement, I'll jump on this.

    I just spent all of yesterday, last night and then this morning:
    -draining my battery to dead
    -charging while off until 100% + an hour extra
    -wiping battery stats

    So I don't want to do that all over again just yet.

    I am surprised you were able to drain your battery so fast! was your phone fully charged before you wiped your battery stats?.. I mean, while I wrote this I had my phone already at 100% and wiped my own battery stats and I still have 30% battery, so I have yet to start charging again.... and I spent most of the morning reading an ebook on my phone?

    Tests will go on as long as it takes.. :p

    Sure if you wan't.. I still ask everyone testing, to run the default theme. We need to control the environment as much as possible during the tests.

    Two questions/concerns

    1. I have the extended battery so I guess I'll just make note of that when posting my stats
    2. I only have Tom's circular battery installed over the default theme but should I still flash the ROM over the top just in case?
