Fast battery drain on Whited00r 6 iPhone 3G even in standby
« on: September 12, 2013, 09:45:19 PM »
Hey guys I just want to know why it is my iPhone 3G running on WD6, quickly consumes battery even if it is in the standby mode.. I went full charge and just  barely 7hrys of being in standby mode it goes down to 35%,.. I think it can be fix but I didn't know if it is a hardware or a software problem..

When you restored to whited00r, did you set up as a new device, or restore from a backup in iTunes to get your data back?

Also, have you installed any extra tweaks on top of whited00r, or done any file system mods?
Configured anything via the setup tool in terminal either, to get the most speed/battery life out of your system?  (More features enabled == more battery drain :( ).

You can also try PowerControl v2.1 to enable a sort of low power mode for the graphics/CPU on the device, to hopefully prolong the battery life :)

Did you reboot the device twice after installing whited00r, to let it finish the install?   You should try out the PowerControl thing I linked you to, it really does help :)

Well you should reboot twice after restoring to whited00r, because it does some configurations on reboot (once to do them, and the other to take affect).  Wait 5 minutes after restore, then 5 minutes between the reboots :)

i downgrade my preference loader to install the activator that fix the settings app from crashing, it says that you would not able to upgrade the preference loader.. . i see the modifications that the PowerControl would bring it says that it will upgrade the preference loader.. i dont what will happen if cydia upgrade it.

Don't upgrade preference loader.  If you downgrade it, it doesn't stop you from upgrading preference loader again (which would break the settings app again), it just fixes the issue of it crashing.  PowerControl shouldn't require you to upgrade preference loader...
