I finally figured out how to get my battery to stop draining fast while my Optimus V is in standby. Usually it would lose about 20% battery overnight. That was unacceptable. haha

I downloaded an app called SetCPU, and set up a profile that underclocks the CPU to 122 MHz whenever the screen is off.

That helped, but the battery still drained pretty fast while it was in standby. I noticed that underclocking the CPU to 122 MHz while it's in standby makes the phone charge a lot faster.

I figured out that it was the 3G data connection that was killing the battery fast. I have Wi-Fi in my house, and that uses a lot less power than the 3G connection on the phone.

By default, Android puts the Wi-Fi connection to sleep while the display is off for a few minutes. This is a REALLY bad idea. I changed the Wi-Fi sleep policy to "Never", so Wi-Fi always stays connected. I just tested it last night, and my battery stayed at 100% without being plugged in! NICE.

To change the Wi-Fi sleep policy, go to Settings --> Wireless & Networks --> Wi-Fi settings --> (phone menu key) --> Advanced --> Wi-Fi sleep policy --> "Never".

Here's a screenshot to prove it (I used the phone for a few minutes in the morning, so it dropped from 100% to 96%): http://img708.imageshack.us/img708/1976/screenshot1314202286552.png

I'm also thinking about buying an extended battery that's 3000 mAh (the stock battery is 1500 mAh).

3000 mAh battery - Android Forums

A few people on that forum post claim the extended battery lasts for 3 to 6 days. That sounds great. With these settings I changed to fix the standby battery drain problem, I bet I could get the extended battery to last even longer.

This ROM has everything setcpu does built in and using set CPU can create problems with the two fighting to control the cpu. Go to setting>cyogen>performance>CPU. (sorry if I butchered the name)

Thanks. I didn't think about that.

I just checked. The cyanogenmod CPU settings doesn't have the ability to use profiles. There is no way to make the phone underclock down to 122 MHz while it's in standby. SetCPU has a lot more options.

I'll uninstall SetCPU for now, and see if it effects the battery life.

What's the best way to make this handle my cpu? Set the min to the lowest, max to the highest? And governor to what? Performance?

Set up your widget bar(go to menu/settings/Cyanogenmod settings/Interface/Notification power widget/widget buttons) with at least WiFi,Mobiledata,Toggle sync. Keep them turned off unless you need them.
Make sure you don't have any apps set to auto update(check in the my apps section on the market) When you go to bed(you don't need any of these unless your actually using the Market or the Web at the time) then you will get maybe 1% to 2% drop over the course of an 8 hour sleep.

The key to using the "V" is ,if your not using it,turn it off.
I can go a day and a half before I get below 20% with moderate use.

After testing a few different settings, the one's that worked the best for me where 787MHz Max-480MHz min.(The min. is where the CPU idle's when the screen is off)
If you set the min and max too far apart then you will end up using more battery trying to come back up to the max.I actually got the best battery off charge time(moderate usage=day and a half) and the best battery temps(19c when at the coolest part of the day,40c at the hottest part of the day) with 787MHZ-480MHz

Try 600MHz max-245MHz min first for a day, then try the other ^^ settings and see which works best for you

You will have to experiment with which scaling mode you like(interactive works for me). See which one gives you the least amount of initial lag(coming from screen off,etc.).

Remember: If your not using it turn it off(WiFi,Data,Sync,GPS,etc). This will save you the most amount of battery.
There are many apps out there that do pretty much the same thing,but without the control you get from just managing these settings yourself.

I'm not too concerned with battery life right now, I just want to get the best speeds.

Don't go any higher on your min than 480 or you run the risk of over heating the CPU and battery. Keep raising the max CPU speed up one notch at a time until it randomly reboots. Then go back down two settings.

I personally use 748-480, interactive. I've found on demand can slip up and cause fc on more demanding apps.

Took a leap of faith and rooted my phone. Decided to install this ROM and everything seemed to be going along fine until it rebooted. Now I am stuck with a glowing green android with a green ring around it and no movement. What the hell did I just do? Help a brother out. Thanks.

take your battery out, put it back and try booting again. Did you make a backup before installing this rom? Did you do a full reformat before installing? If not its to late to backup but you can reboot into recovery reformat and reflash the rom.

your first reboot can take a while as long as that green circle is rotating it didnt freeze up and should still be booting.

It does have CPU settings built in, but as far as I know there's no way to have different CPU settings in different profiles. At least I couldn't get them to stay. E.g. when I change from the default profile to night profile the CPU stuff stays the same and I have to change them when I switch back and forth

Tested and these are all working on my phone with full wipe/format:
(but you should be fine with wiping cache/dalvik)

-Email (was FCing on the 0823 build)
-GPS (was non-existant on a couple of previous builds)
-Camera (camera didn't work on 0823 build)
-Camcorder (camcorder didn't record audio on some previous builds)
-Market (one previous build had issues installing or being recognized properly)
-Bootsounds (most previous builds had borked bootsound files)

The only true issues I'm aware of currently are headphone button not working, and some volume level issues. Please let us know if you have other issues.
Camcorder still doesn't record sound for me. Did a full wipe/format. And Gmail doesn't update on it's own. Had to do a refresh to get my latest emails. Not sure if this would be a problem with the latest build, though. Other than that, nice work.

Actually now that I've checked, none of the apps that give me notifications in the status bar are working. I have to refresh each one to get new messages.

EDIT: And yes, I checked all the settings for syncing and such.

I had an issue with downloading a few apps from the market. Applied this fix and haven't had any problems since.

What are your opinions on this, and why isn't this fix included in the ROM?

Hadn't tested the Camcorder on previous builds, but, I too cannot record sound. My Gmail, however, updates just fine for me. Did you set your accounts to auto-sync your gmail? Since you did a clean wipe, that may be the issue...

Never mind that... Missed your second post... Sorry.

Yes, I did. I am not getting updates for new email in the notification bar. Not only that, but I am not getting notifications for other apps, like Facebook Messenger.

LOL, just saw your edit...

Hmmm. Seems there was an option for syncing Gmail I didn't notice prior. Notifications are working for Gmail at least.

hey Jerry, i flashed the rom and it runs so smooth and perfectly. i flashed the picasticks kernel over the rom and this just completely improved the performance and batterly life drastically. there is only one problem, the screen does not rotate, at all. only when apps require the screen to be in landscape. other than that, it doesnt not orientate when i rotate my phone. is there anything i can do to fix this?

Rotation works fine on my phone. Have you checked your settings? There may have been something you missed.

Pica is froyo this is gb. There's going to be issues using a froyo kernel on a gb rom.

Edit: no camera issues with sound did have issue with the market but I cleared its data and catch (for market) and allowed it to update (had updater frozen) and now that works as well. Had a few fcs on launcher pro nothing major. Notifications work great make sure you go into the apps settings and have notifications enabled. Headset (wired) is working have not made a call with the headset (one that came with the phone )

Off topic side note, got bored and built my first Linux machine with Ubuntu. Just had to mention lol.

Probably because no one is using picasticks kernel with BACKside-IHO. You might try Drew's xionia-redux kernel, it was build to work with IHO builds, only for the Optimus S, so you may have to swap home-menu keys.

There have definitely been some issues with the source code over the past week and a half. The main Android repo had sync issues, CyanogenMod7.1 had commits that weren't compatible, and Blarf is cleaning things up and preparing to support another of the Optimus line of phones. Sorry for the issues, I can post other builds with less issues if anyone needs me too. For now, if you use the 0823 build and take the email.apk from any other build, you should have a pretty much bug free install.

(i know this is a lil late buuut) for mine, i use 600/768 ondemand, and i get pretty good battery life, and performance. i was listening to music through out a 2 hour bus ride, 1 hour walk, and constantly using facebook, texting like a teenaged girl, using maps to find out where i needed to go. and only drained from charge to 86% battery.. unplugged from charger around 11am and it reached 86% around 4 or 5pm.

In honor of the recent builds, check out the new bootsound!

I tested, rebooted, then tested again the following:
-- Market - updated and installed new apps
-- Camera - took pictures and videos with audio
-- GPS - maps and the browser both lock on quick, navigation icon present
-- Accelerometer - tested on My Paper Airplane and in settings menus, worked fine
-- Email - both my yahoo and gmail accounts synced and notified me
-- Browser - tried server sites, different ones before and after reboot

I did have to reflash gapps, ymmv.

Google an app called betterbatterystats, it may help you find what's eating your battery.

Very much enjoy using your builds, JerryScript -- would it be possible to incorporate camera sound silencing?

Or perhaps generating an optional simple Zip file the enable this?

I flash my ROM every time you update your build, and find myself doing a manual Zip update for the circle battery mod (UOT), then manually renaming/deleting the camera click sound files

I would imagine there are many others out there who feel the same

I wont be removing the camera click sound due to it's being required by law in some jurisdictions.

(something to do with those stupid upskirt picture takers)

it fixed MMS too. love the boot sound, seems like everything is working perfectly so far

EDIT:
and a pretty good idea for a boot animation - after the boot sound says "5 seconds" make a boot animation count down from 5, along with an extended sound, makeing countdown "boop-ing" noises. and at the end make it say "gotcha" or something like that, and then an IHO animation. you should have enough time for boot to do all that and then some.

Finally got around to doing my first root. Well, ok, it was my 2nd. I rooted my old Intercept which doesn't get used anymore except when I get bored and try to do things with it. If it bricks, so what.

Love the look, feel and speed of this. Went smooth right from the 1st attempt.

I tried to update from the 8/20 build to the 8/25 build. After the I.H.O. logo, I hear the boot sound, but it freezes at a black screen. I probably need to do a clean install. I'll wait for a few more releases to go by to make it worth the effort.

Did you try just letting sitting there?

Same thing happened to me got the sound and had a black screen for a while just let it sit and loaded up just fine. the first reboot usually takes a little bit and if i'm not mistaken there is not boot animation with this one?

Oh. There's no boot animation? I didn't see that in the changelog. I figured something was wrong. I'll update it again and be more patient this time. hahaha

It worked. Now I just need to find a good tutorial on how to change the boot logo and boot animation (because I'm that bored). haha

I noticed that the default exposure setting in the camera app is fixed. It's not too dark anymore. VERY NICE. All of the exposure settings work too. There's also a timer function added to it. The camera is perfect now.

I can only find one problem with this ROM. A transparency effect in some apps is kind of scrambled. For example, if you go to your friends list on the Facebook app and use the slider on the right to do a fast scroll by letter, the popup letter is scrambled. I've noticed in a few other places, but I can only think of the Facebook app off the top of my head.
