    Hi all,
    So I rooted my wife's Eris and my Eris about 2 months ago. Overclocked both of them to 768 and everything has been stable. But in the last week the battery life has suddenly taken a dive. Can't even get through half a day before needing to charge again and that's after a full night's charge and with minimal use in the morning. Anyone have the same experience and is there anything we can do to make it better? I did the one touch Root and am using the ROM that came with that. Do we need to try another ROM to help?

    Since you rooted 2 months ago, and battery life has just suffered in the last week, I think we can safely rule out rooting as the cause of the problem. Typically this type of behavior is most often seen when an app is trying to do some sort of a synchronization. Facebook, weather widgets, Google sync have all been seen to have caused a problem at some time or another. If you updated/added any apps right before the problem began you might take a close look at them to see if they are causing the problem.
    Also, if you haven't already done so, you could try simply turning the phones off and back on to see if that resets whatever is causing the problem.

    Thanks mhotovec,
    Now that you say that, I did add Tango about a week ago for video calling. We only used it the first couple of days to test it. But in our running services it show it is running so I think that must be it. I'll try removing it. Thanks for the quick help.

    Tango was the culprit. Removed it and I haven't had to charge my phone in 2 days and I still have about 25% power left with normal use. Thank God, my wife was ready to throw her phone at me because we couldn't get through 3 hours in the day before it was almost dead. Thanks for the suggestion.
