    This isn't a patch for Libety 1.5, it's a test that Kejar is kindly allowing everyone to participate in.... IF the testing goes well (and it seems to be), then I assume we'll be seeing these changes in a future version of Liberty.

    To answer the theme question:
    Themes REPLACE files... especially the framework-res.apk file, which holds a ton of the images for your phone (pretty much everything for the status bar, notification drop-down, etc. etc. etc.).
    The battery patch in the first post consists primarly of that framework-res file. It WILL reset most of your theme back to stock/default when applied, because it will replace your framework-res with the patched version for this test.

    Which is one reason the results of these tests are confusing.. because I'm seeing lots of different status bar battery icons in the screenshots being posted. if everyone was using the test patch.. they should all be the same!!!!! This tells me that people are either using {ninj|met}amorph, or they're not using the patch/test framework-res.

    Thank you to those who actually read/followed the directions in the first post. I hope that Kejar can sift through all of the erroneous data for the good stuff here... If nothing else, this test seems to reflect that the placebo effect is extremely powerful... :p

    it might just be that he uses other apps more than you. his display might take same amount of of power but when you have other apps using power the percentages are gonna be off

    Did you read any of the posts in this thread?

    From the FIRST POST:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/li...e-battery-life-you-can-help-team-liberty.html
    From 4 (FOUR) posts above yours:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/li...you-can-help-team-liberty-25.html#post1295766
    Those are 2 of about 100 examples of this question being answered in this thread (to see them all, please kindly refer to the "search thread" button located at the top of EVERY PAGE on this forum).

    In case there is still some kind of doubt... If you apply a theme, it will almost certainly replace your framework-res.apk which will remove the "tweak".

    I use the stock power control widget and manually change my display settings depending on where im at and which apps im using. I typically keep it on the lowest display settings since im inside most of the day. Hope this helps.

    Quick question.

    Do I need to reinstall the stock rom and then put on the battery tweak? Also, what if you reboot your phone on that first initial discharge after resetting battery stats.
