Default Battery dying fast!

Alright, so I jumped on the forum for the first time in a month or so to see whats new, and because my battery life has suddenly went way bad and hoping to find a fix. Well, as I'm scanning various threads, I've noticed many people experiencing the same problem. For me nothing new from the market, nothing out of the ordinary. Running adamz 6.0 for quite some time and has always been great.

WTF is going on!?

This is ridiculous, I use to be able to get a day easily out of my phone, now I'm completly dead and shutting off in 8-10 hours with light use. !?? It was seriously like night and day sometime in the past week or so..

Starting this thread to try and exclusively get a reason and fix..

Apparently people have narrowed down the crappy battery life to an unexpected OTA that is sized at 64..69mbs.. and apparently, the thought is that if your ROM says anything other than 2.1, it is trying to update it to that, over and over and over again..thus draining your battery. That or.. if you dont have SPRecovery, itll do the same as in trying to install the update over n over n over again. No one knows for sure whats going on, but detective work is in progress.. so far I believe that I am one of the few who have posted anything in the likes of 'no battery issues with me!'

Ghost, that's what my understanding is as well, but my problem is that I DO have SPRecovery, AND I'm showing 2.1 ????

but if your rom does not have the OTAcert file installed it will keep trying to download it thus using battery.

My firmware says 2.1-update1. Could that be causing this problem? Usinv Chevy's simply stunning 3.0. I am using the recovery from Rom Manager.

Can you give a link or instruction on installing the OTACert?

via Fab on the NexBeast thread:
-If you get prompted about an OTA update, flash SPRecovery (if you don't have it), and accept. SPRecovery will block the update, and then you will never be bothered again (can flash back Clockwork after)

This is of course after you have installed the OTA Certs.
I have not had a problem yet.

edit - somewhere in that thread he says that clockwork "may" block it as well.
