    Since the JB update I've noticed the OS is using about 32% of the battery. I have about half the battery life as on ICS. Any tools to help save some battery.

    I have the same... :( After updating to JB my battery is much weaker. At the same settings - consumes 50% more battery life. WIFI and the system consumes a lot more energy.

    Since most people have not found that. Even myself. I would try a factory reset and or check apps that maybe are not updated to JB

    I'm going to check my apps and see if that's the issue.

    Have the same problem, I am on RAZR no maxx. Tried FDR and it didn't help battery life. It did help smoothness but not battery. Right now I've turned off google now to see if that makes any difference.

    I had that problem for a few days, did a FDR and no better but after about 4 days it smoothed out and was better than ICS, so just give it a little bit before you mess with it too much

    I was hoping that'd be the case, but it's been about a week, I did however forget to change it off of global until today, so I'll see if that helps

    Will restore factory settings be back to android 4.0.4? I see consumption increased by about 15 percent by day!! For example, at night, in the standby mode previously consumed a maximum of two percent of the batteries. Now it's almost 10!

    There is no going back to ICS once you are on either JB releases.

    You have to be on 211 since 215 was never a recognized release so you can't upgrade from that one. You need to roll back to 211.

    Yes, I know that. I'm just wondering if I do go back, will I get the OTA update. I guess its a chance to i might take, but I'm not sure if I want to yet. I mean, is the release been sent out to all people yet, or not?

    It is out and you will get it if you go back to 211. There is already an update out for those of us on HD's to make our version up to date version wise with the one released to Maxx and Razr owners. You can postpone it if you want or just stay on 215 if you have reservations. I liked it when I put the Christmas leak on my Maxx and I liked 215 before that. I had no issues with either version on my Maxx. I have to wonder if those having issues with it had issues prior to the upgrade. Seems like that is the case most times.

    Yeah, that's what my fear is about upgrading to JB. But I might go and load it later today. Thanks for the feedback, hopefully when I roll back I get an update notice.

    You will get ota after going back to 211...that is what I did...I manually checked for update after roll back and it was there first try.

    I did FDR before update...updated... rooted...did the sqlite WiFi trick...zero problems.

    I don't have any battery issues. I use apex launcher (which I had before update). I did use go SMS before but the stock app is growing on me so have not gone back to it (yet) haha.

    Good luck

    I didn't have the battery issue before the update and neither did others posting on thus thread, that's why it says JB is sucking my battery dry and not my battery has always been bad

    My Maxx had no battery issues before or after the update. I find it hard to believe it is the update that caused it. Could it not be an app that does not work well in JB and is causing the issue? Is it also possible you need to do a battery meter calibration after the update? There are just as many who are having no issues with battery after the update as well. I know everyone always suggest an FDR after a major update too, I have never done one and have not experienced these issue others seem to have.

    I'm happy for you that you don't have any issues. But the issues others are having are real. If we knew the cause, then this thread would stop. It very well may be some app(s). All we know is that something changed with the update that made some of our batteries have significantly less life and the whole point of this thread is to try and get to the bottom of it.
