    That is a little high. But being that you just rooted last night, let's give it a day or two to see if it levels off. Here's a screen shot of mine at 45% and I still got well over 18 hours and just over 7 hours of screen on time. [​IMG]
    Here's one of my previous screen shots where I'm at 14% with 17 hours with 7 hrs 45 min SO time. [​IMG]
    Point being, big difference in Android OS percentage numbers, but similar overall battery life.

    After reviewing some previously saved screen shots, my Android os is usually around 15%, but I do have a couple in the 40s with equally impressive battery life numbers. Keep an eye on it the next couple days and see if it drops.

    I noticed two (really three), pretty significant periods at least, where the device was being kept awake but the screen wasn't on... See the two solid blue areas in the bottom section, middle blue line (awake) versus bottom blue line (screen on), and the third towards the right.

    You'll notice the corresponding drops in battery levels in the top chart.

    In 30 minutes I'm already down another 5%. At this rate I'm not going to make it to the end of the night lol

    Your screenshot shows you're on wifi and I know you mentioned changing this the day you got your phone, but you might go back in and see if it's checked again.
    I rarely use Wifi so I'm not sure how much this may or may not be contributing to your battery drain. You wouldn't think it would make that big a difference, but I gained about an hour of screen on time after disabling this.

    I did check it right when you posted, so I know it's not that. I'll keep an eye on things though. The phone was running warm a little while ago, but back to normal by touch currently

    I would download wakelock detector from the Play Store and let it run for a day or two. Your wakelocks are crazy.

    Also, has your cellphone reception always been that poor? Is that yellow?

    Yep, we have steel siding on the house, and my city in general is just pretty weak. Even with my Motorola phones I was lucky to get 3 bars

    Some carriers will give you a cell expander that will boost your signal inside of your house. That alone will improve your battery life.

    Yeah, they want 250 for it. I don't make/receive calls much and when I do it doesn't seem like there is a connectivity issues, so a booster is unnecessary. I never had an issue with lack of signal contributing to drained battery before. This drain is the result of doing root

    Wow. $250 is pretty steep. AT&T gave us one for free when we first built our house out of town.

    You could always flash back to stock and see what happens.
