    Greetings,

    I finally rooted my htc desire and installed cyanogen 6.1. It was pretty awsome, until i realised after 1 day of almost no use, that, the battery didnt even last one day...

    I did a restore to the sense, did a full charge yesterday. Unplugged it around 5pm, at 5am the phone shut down because the battery was empty... I only sended like 10 text messages in the evening.

    Please, how can i fix this?

    Have you wiped battery stats via the Recovery menu?

    Did you flash with the USB plugged in?

    OK, if you boot into recovery, I think its under advanced, you can wipe battery stats there (if you're using clockworkmod)
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    There is also a calibration trick. Its not much use other than placebo effect in every day use, but in this situation, it may help...

    Charge phone until green 100%.

    Unplug and turn off.

    Charge until green whilst off (if already green, asume this step is done) - then disconnect

    Turn on phone, allow to boot up and turn off again after OS fully loaded (2 mins)
    Whilst off, charge again until green

    Turn on phone and test.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    Also assume you did a data wipe between these roms? If you did not, it may be battery drain related. Suggest factory reset.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    If all the above fail to return a good result, your battery may have gone faulty.
