[2.3.4] GPS always on after upgrade, draining batterySupport

    I recently received an update to android 2.3.4 on my LG P970 but since then it's draining my battery like crazy. It went from 100% to 0% in 9 hours with one short phonecall and no other usage.

    GPS is always on, contrary to my previous 2.2.2 install.
    I have nearly the same apps, no new app that is running in the background that wasnt before.
    Only one new app that uses location services, turned these off but GPS stays on all the time.

    When i look at the energy consumption there is a specific app called ShakeOff that used 80% of the power, so clearly this is the culprit? However, i did not have any issues with ShakeOff on 2.2.2 and would be sad to loose this functionality.

    However, this app doesnt seem to use the GPS, and after i have it turned off GPS is still continuously active. So maybe i'm even seeing two issues?

    hope anyone can be of help here!

    Try uninstalling it and doing a whole charge cycle, see if it helps.

    Maybe the app is bugged.

    it seems if you force close the app and restart it the problem is solved. Apparently if it autoloads at booting it will make the GPS turn on constantly.
    Seems the issue is solved now, still weird.

    worked perfectly fine in 2.2.2. though.
