    So I recently rooted for the first time and decided to flash fresh 3.2 after some research. This was my process: did full app and data backup with titanium, wiped everything, flashed, restored all using titanium.Before flashing I was getting around 16 to 20 hours battery life, now with fresh I'm averaging 10 or less. Up time is 20 awake is 5, checked auto cdma prl, talk sign in, not synching, and usage is same as before. It says android system is using a big portion of my battery which it never was this high before.

    I was led to believe fresh was better for my battery but I'm not seeing it. My question is did I do something wrong in flashing backing up restoring or am I missing something or something more I should do? Also any other rom suggestions I could try out fresh has also been a bit laggy for me.

    do you use facebook? if not i suggest removing it completely from your phone. if you do i would remove it as a test, you can always flash the rom back over to get it back and access facebook from your web browser while testing.

    Facebook confirms battery drain in latest Android build [update: Fix is out!] | Android Central

    also if you just flash the rom you will need to relearn the battery stats in your phone. run it down until it shuts off then charge to full a couple of times.

    Also the back up that you made with titanium can be causing problems, especially if you didnt come from a prior fresh rom.

    I'm having very good battery life with Fresh 3.2 - perhaps there's some service running in the background that's draining your battery? FB is a common battery sucker.

    My battery life has been awful since I bought the phone but I've tried to be patient. I put Fresh on last week and saw an improvement but a very small one. I'm burning about 5-6% per hour idle and trying several tweaks but so far no luck.

    The apps I worry about the most are Handcent, Touchdown (push email) and Facebook. Unfortunately I feel I need all three so I don't have many options.

    I am not having issues either, I am fresh 3.2 with netarchy kernel, and underclocked and get 15-25 hrs per charge depending on use.

    Same here... my battery life is even better on the weekends when my phone is mostly at home with good reception--I work in the basement so the signal sucks and seems to drain the battery faster

    I have 79% remaining after 7hrs unplugged, I have Tasker monitoring my conditions AND I have had wifi ion this whole time. I have been LOVING my significant increase in battery life since getting Fresh 3.2
