    Is there a way to avoid the no sleep bug present in newer firmwares?
    I think it hit me, first my phone lasted for 3+ days, then some other time the battery drained in like 1 day. I did disable GPS and location via wireless networks (I did use it before though, but disabled it after usage), is there anything else I can do?

    Thanks.

    Have you rebooted your phone since you disabled those? BTW, you did not need to disable GPS, at least it have not caused 'no sleep' for me.

    informale, do you think no sleep could be related to baseband, since it has relation to network location, which in fact is a radio thing, it could maybe help to replace baseband with one of a older firmware without no sleep bug...

    i do not use any 1.6 version, so i can not try it, but if someone with the bug would flash only amss for testing we could easily fid out ;-)

    Hmm... I may try that the next time 1.6 is updated. I'm a bit tired of testing for now )

    Okay, I give up. Indeed, the bug hits even with 'network location' off, although I cannot confirm it is caused by charging. Will probably try flashing II5 baseband with JC6 pda.

    Update:

    Just flashed IK5 baseband with Odin (just the baseband, so no factory resets, yahey!). Will report if that helps.

    It does not matter if the fw comes in one package or in multiple tar files - you can make a phone.tar out of amss manually, which I did.

    do you do this by just renaming it or do you pack it into a tarball?

    I use Total Commander. I open a folder with amss in one pane and open a PDA.tar archive from a multi-file fw in the second pane. Then I just 'copy' amss into the archive and confirm replacement of the existing amss.

    I do it that way, because Total Commander has proven to be producing perfectly good TARs, as opposed to some other software, and I don't have to worry, how the archive is created, because TC repacks the tar with the whichever parameters it came in the first place.

    I know it sounds lame, but that's how I do it ) It's convenient, since TC is my most used app after a browser anyway, and it works ;)

    I don't know what software has problems with tar, I just know that people used something and it did not work. I recall someone recommended WinZip, but I am happy with TC.

    I still have the bug with IK5 baseband :( Will try II5. However, I suspect I should have made full re-flash and factory reset. But don't want to do it just yet - had a week of constant resets - a bit tired of restoring backups )

    update:

    what is 'ot'?

    Good old times when total commander was win commander.. The new name sucks..

    This is off topic btw, which has the shortcut "ot" ;-)

    Surprisingly, so far so good on II5 baseband. But I'll continue the monitoring...
