    Does anyone else have really bad battery life on xtrROM 4.6? I have window animations turned off, have brightness down to like 35% and my battery life is still really bad.

    Also on a maybe related note, I only have like 40 MB of internal storage available and I only have like 15 or so apps.

    I haven't enabled any of the gscripts yet either.

    You guys can try to wipe your battery stats. I do that before I flash a rom, it helps to calibrate the battery to the rom. I get about 20 hrs with heavy use.

    I've noticed the same with xtrROM compared with the Froyo builds, and I've noticed the same in the last couple of days with xtrSENSE. This morning I noticed that, for some reason, my brightness was set to 100% rather than automatic, as I thought it was. I've also altered the 710400 CPU gscript to run at 604800 (for now - I may switch to stock), and changed minimum to 160000; we'll see how that goes.

    That said, I am getting through the day, and that should be all that counts - just get me from unplug to plug in at night and I'm fine with it.

    If you are referring to wiping the battery stats it in recovery, go to wipe and its third down from the top. Under the other wipes.

    If you mean "How did I alter the 710400 script to be 604800," I went into gscript, menu, add script, click load file, click "set_cpu_max_710400.sh". The script is displayed in the large box on the "Add script" screen, and I changed everything that said 710400 to 604800, then clicked "save" and ran the script.

    To change the minimum to 160000, there is already a gscript for that; just load it, save it, and run it.

    BTW, I always wipe battery when I change from one Android version to another. This is legit; the xtr ROMs running the Zanfur kernel do not last as long as the Froyo ROMs, everything else being equal. I haven't tried running xtrSENSE with one of Conap's kernels to see if battery life would improve (i.e., I do not know if it is something with Froyo or the kernel which makes battery better.) I may try it, just to see if anything is improved, and to see if anything breaks, for that matter.

    Funny, I just flashed the XTRrom 4.6 from XTRsense and felt like the battery life was a little better? I was busy messing with the launcher pro settings and configuring the screens, sending txt's, surfing the web, etc....and was down to about 20% by last night. Seems pretty good for heavier than normal use to me.

    I have had battery issues also, but I've pretty much nailed it down to Gmail contacts sync issue. I just have the sync contacts turned off and battery is much better.

    How do you turn off just the Contacts sync? I've just started trying xtrSense 4.6 and notice poor battery life as well.....

    Go to settings, then accounts & sync, then google, then uncheck the box that says contacts.:)

    I double checked over at xda, the 4.5 has been removed. I can understand why zach would have removed the 4.5 that had the new kernel, but the other 4.5 worked flawlessly. You may have to got with the 4.2.1. It's nice and stable and I liked it better then 4.5.

    There should be, if you have settings->accounts & sync, both "background data" and "auto-sync" checked. If not, then something is wrong.

    Did you wipe data before you flashed?

    Try the 50% w/o signal fix

    That's probably your problem, cause it was mine.

    I would like to retract my earlier statement of battery performance, or at least it is very different today. Battery drain was pretty rapid today and I used my phone less than yesterday???
    Had to put it on the charger just now 8:16PM because it was in the red zone. I took it off the charger this morning at 7:30AM and used the phone less than usual.....I'm going to a earlier version of XTR and use launcher pro to see if the battery life is better.

    Has anyone tried to run the "battery Tweak" in the gscript to see if that makes a difference?

    I noticed the same problem. The fix for me was to install setCPU and apply my own over/under clock settings.

    I am having the same problem. I'll try the wipe again and see where that gets me.

    I flashed back to XTRrom 4.0.6.1 (all I had saved on my hard drive) and running launcher pro with all the same CPU settings and widgets that I put on 4.6 and my battery is very happy again.

    Not sure why the battery runs down faster on the new 4.6? It's a shame, I really like how launcher pro was built in because it seems to run more stable. I also liked the unlock screen in the new rom :(
