    I recently Odin to BH_MAN_DONUT_R8 Galaxy 1.6 and my battery life has been horrible. It's only lasting about 7 hours. Before when I was on stock It use to last at least a day but not I barely get 7 hours. I've try everything the past 4 days, I've got autokiller, batterry left app, turn off everything in my settings from wifi to network locations and still the battery last 7 hours. Can anyone help me?

    You should get the Spare Parts app and select: Battery history>Partial wake usage. This will tell you what apps are staying awake and draining your battery.

    Installed Spare Parts checked the partial wake usage and this is what its showing: Android system, media, dialer, facebook, calendar, google apps and handcent sms.

    Did you follow the directions at the top of the post? Specifically:
    1)Drain the battery fully
    2)Fully charge
    3)Flash using ODIN
    4)Let battery completely drain through normal use
    5)Fully charge

    If you did not do this, the phone has the wrong stats for your battery, and as a result can't accurately guage it.

    it could be the batterystats.bin file which holds battery statistics is giving wrong information. In the Tips and Tricks thread, there is a post on how to remove it and retrain the battery to get better performance out of it.

    How is the phones "up time" vs "awake time"? Go to: Menu>settings>about phone>battery

    Also check Spare Parts: battery history>other usage. What are the % of "running" and "screen on"

    how did u fix the battery problem? Does it just take a few full discharge/charge cycles for it to calibrate? I just did the ROM flash and also full discharged and charged before doing the flash and my battery is still draining pretty fast (still on 2nd day after the flash)

    Get advance task manager. Theres an awesome and quick kill all/push to end button you can put on your home screen.

    I was also only getting around 7 hours and had to carry an extra charger but then I downloaded advance task manager and everytime before I put my phone in my pocket I pressed the push to end button and had my phone for 9 hours (heavy usage) and still had 3/6 bars left. I can find you a link if needed ;)
