So, this is what I did:
1. Go to Launcherpro General settings = disable the Keep in memory
2. Enter Android system info app again, manually end the task for android.process.acore
3. This would stop the android os drain
Please note that, whenever you restart your phone, the same file will reappear and you need to manually kill it. This solution works for me and I'm now able to use S2 for 2.5 days with moderate use of 3G and screen brightness at max.
I guess this is my best solution until Launcherpro comes up with an update that solve this problem. At least I know it's not Samsung's fault.
I downloaded the Android System Info (ASI) from Android Market.
Then i opened this app and went to the tab "Tasks".
There I could see the task -- android.process.acore
I clicked on the small plus (+) sign next to its name. It showed the option "End Task". I clicked it. The task vanished from the list.
Then I came out and did some surfing in folders. After 5 min, I checked the "Tasks" in ASI, acore process was there again !!!!!
How come you prevented it from starting again. If it is starting again then I think it is a system-required task that will start again when u kill it.
