This is my first post as I've been trolling and gathering info to try and make my EVO better. I want to state that I LOVE my phone and it perfectly does everything I need it for. I just have a minor problem. With all the tweaks I've done (and redone) I can't for the life of me get my phone to last more then 8 (or less) hours. Here is my phone settings. I'm rooted via the new root method (ota simple) from xda. It worked flawlessly and then I installed the dmg rom on the Battery Saver method. Got a little bit of time. THEN I purchased and followed the SetCPU program tweaks and did that to the T. I also have the following: GPS On. Mobile Internet on (no wifi or bluetooth). I have all "Friends" syncing off but I have my gmail and work email on push (required via my job) I have my brightness set to almost the lowest and I have to charge my phone about 2pm everyday otherwise my phone is dead. Typical day: Wake up at 7am unplug phone. Check email/comics then go to work. I'm an IT sys admin and am required to have my phone/answer emails throughout the day. but at least 4 hours the phone is just sitting there or I'm lightly texting on it. But no matter how little or how often I use it it gets about 30% dead about 2pm with ALL the tweaks i've done. Now: This might make all the difference. I have LOW signal at work and home (1 little bitty bar to none). And my cell standby is almost always above 50%. But with all the tweaks (yes I've done the network app and yes its on CDMA) with PRL and profile updates (rooted and unrooted) it still has the problem. I'm writing this in hopes I've missed something drastic and do NOT have to get a "2700MAH EXTENDED BATTERY" from China. I do NOT want the added bulk or need it. Any questions/comments are welcome that can help me. I've read most of the evo forums here and xda and from what I've read I should have "kick ass" battery life in standby and in general tweaks.
