my battery dies within two hours and it will just drop even when im not using it? any suggestions?
Try and wipe cache and dalvik-cache. You can also go to setting>about phone>battery and see if the uptime and awake time are the same. From there go to Battery use and see what is at the top of the list.
okay so my uptime is about 49 hours and my awake time is 43 hours, in battery usage says my display is taking 43 % dialer 26% and cell standyby 11% and phone idle 10% then 6, 2, 2 %
I would wipe dalvik-cache and cache then charge it to 100% and see how it is after that. Looks like it is not sleeping for some reason. Might be a recent app installed.
what would wiping those do to my phone?
Wiping those is kind of like deleting temporary internet files on your pc. The phone will rebuild dalvik-cache when you boot it. Sometimes you can get data in these partitions that can cause odd issues with your phone. It a good idea to wipe these at least once a week under normal use. If you flash alot of things, then it gets done more that that anyway
okay i have a backup of before flashing this, if i just restore could the problem still exist and can i do that?
You can restore it but it might not indicate what the problem is. If you are not concerned with the issue but just want it fixed, you can try and restore a nandroid. Otherwise you can trace down what the issue is in case it shows up again at some point.
could be not deleting the files once i flash them for instance: i just rooted and flashed amon ra since i had clockwork. then i flashed this rom and i still i have the super user file on my phone. should i keep any of this or delete them?
You can get rid of those as long as you have flashed them already. I usually keep a copy of the rom I am running and a couple of nandroids along with my music, pics, etc.
okay and what does wiping the dalvik cache and cache do?
It deletes "temporary" files on your phone that can cause lag and other issues.
