    Hey people, i was just wondering, but does this sound like a faulty battery to you?

    Time since unplugged: 10 hours 30 mins
    Awake Time 1 hour 12 Mins

    Things been using Battery
    Cell Standby: 60%
    Phone idle: 32%
    Backlight: 8%


    and iv now got 10% battery left?

    surely it should last longer than that, iv got a g2 hero rooted with villain 5.2

    Edit: Oops sorry just noticed i wasnt in the normal hero section please can you move from root to hero please.

    Thanks

    Hmm, this is strange, i updated the radio rom last night, and now my stats are,

    Uptime: 15 hours 36 mins
    Awake Time: 6 hours 56 Mins

    Things using the battery:
    Cell Standby 47%
    Phone Idle 39%
    Display: 9%
    Wifi 5%

    and my battery is still at 50%

    could the radio rom effect the battery or am i just going crazy?

    Which radio rom did you install? My battery performance is pretty poor since going to 2.1 (I updated the radio to update-hero-radio-63.18.55.06JU_6.35.09.26-signed.zip before installing the ROM)

    Cheers, that's the version I'm already running ;) I might try a re-flash if the battery performance stays this bad.

    This is very interesting. I hope you don't mind I re-titled the thread to Battery Life with updated Radio and I'd like to keep it in the Root sub-forum. I hope some more people will chime in with before/after performance. I might look to update mine now.

    What are you using to get those stats? Just flashed to the latest radio so could collect some data too if its helps.

    BTW, if I update to a new ROM such as Villain will I need to reflash the radio?

    Settings > About phone > Battery > Battery use

    And no you don't have to update the radio. That's why I'm now wondering whether I should after this thread.

    Ah, I'm assuming this is a 2.1 feature and not 1.5? I've not upgraded yet.
