    Running the 1 ghz kernel, without Pete's script, using SetCPU only.

    400 min, 1000 max while active.

    400 min, 550 max while sleeping.

    Will test battery life and report back.

    its called pete...don't know if there's an extension. pete included a sysrw, sysro option so you can try typing this in a terminal (i take no responsibility if it doesn't work haha)

    su
    sysrw
    rm /system/xbin/pete
    sysro

    I've experienced exactly the same with the Bekit kernels on EVERY rom I've used them with. ChevyNo1's kernels have done excellent for me across the board. I've flashed about 10 different roms and the best success kernel wise has been with P3 kernels and ChevyNo1 kernels. I realize Pete only recommends Bekit's on BB 1.0 but ChevyNo1's LV 7 slot 1.2 is doing great for me.

    Alright I've removed the 'pete' script via TermEmul and rebooted. Seems to be working fine. I guess I'll have to see if the battery life improves now.

    Well you'll have to use setCPU now I'm sure if you want to see improvements in batt life. Just letting you know. The point of removing 'pete' is so you can use setCPU to manage profiles. I don't think it'll make a difference if you just delete the file and dont use setCPU. If you don't notice any improvement just redownload the ROM and apply it again and the pete file will be back, if you need to experiment somewhere else.

    btw, if you want the pete file back you can probably also use these commands:

    su
    sysrw
    busybox cp /sdcard/pete system/xbin
    sysro

    provided you have the pete file from the ROM package in the root of your SD card. prolly easier than reinstalling the whole ROM. If I'm wrong feel free to correct me haha

    25 minutes unplugged. Only use consisted of turning on the screen to check battery level/usage every 3-4 minutes.

    Display 31%
    Android system 20%
    SetCPU 14%
    Phone Idle 14%
    Standby 12%
    Like 3 things at < 4%

    Says 90%, but who knows how long it takes to get from 100-90, probably not very long. I will test from 90 to 80.

    Running very cool, 25*C. It was at 90% after ~15 minutes of being unplugged, but that might not be accurate. I'll probably the time when it hits 80% and subtract 15 minutes from it, giving me an accurate number after multiplying to determine the approximate life.

    Not looking good so far, though.

    Okay, this is very discouraging.

    1 hour, 3 minutes unplugged, I'm at 80% on the battery monitor.

    My ONLY usage was turning on the phone to check the battery level and what was using it -_-

    That's far, far less than I normally do.

    Simple multiplication means that I'd have a 5-6 hour battery life under THOSE conditions (mostly idle, checking every now and again). That is not acceptable.

    Usage levels:

    Display: 29%
    Android system: 19%
    SetCPU: 14% (wtf)
    Phone idle: 14% (wtf)
    Standby: 12% (wtf)
    3-4 things at 3% or less

    Gonna try a Chevy kernel I think per someone's recommendation earlier in the thread.

    Yeah that's ridiculous. There's definitely something weird going on there...yeah try another kernel and see if that helps?

    5 minutes unplugged on the Chevy LV 1.0 ghz kernel and the monitor is at 90%. I literally did not turn the screen on at all until I checked this first time.

    I will see when it hits 80%. Phone standby/idle are still at ~15% a piece, which seems much higher than I'm used to seeing. I remember Display dominating all other components. Can someone share their standby/idle numbers?

    Something is fishy, here.

    did you do a complete wipe before you installed the ROM? There is definitely something wrong there, or something running in the background that's killing your battery. 5 minutes 10% obviously should not be happening no matter what you're doing with your phone haha.

    Complete wipe, cache and data. 3 times each.

    To its defense, 100-90 has always been fast, but 90-80 is the true test. I managed about 55-60 minutes from 90-80 on the Bekit's 1 ghz kernel, so we'll see what numbers the Chevy one produces.
