    I did unrEVOked 3.21 and applied OMJ's 2.2 netarchy kernel ROM.

    I am not sure what my battery life was at this point but I was now on 2.2 after using eclair 2.1 for so long.

    I wanted to go to the new stock kernel so reupdated to OMJ's stock kernel 2.2 ROM. I also added back the Sprint TV Widget.

    Ever since, I have noticed a MAJOR drop in battery life. I usually get 30-40 hours on a single charge. Now I'm down to about 10. It is REALLY screwed up.

    I have CWM backups of all of the phases, including my 2.1 ROM.

    I might experiment rolling back if nobody else has any better ideas on how to debug?

    I am using ATK but I make ATK kill itself so it is only there to help me kill procs. I noticed QIK and FRING seem to run all the time now whereas they didn't before I updated them. Not sure if that is related. TOP app shows me nothing special but system_server taking up most of the CPU like maybe 6% peaking while idling. Otherwise I just can't figure it out!! I used to be the one bragging about how awesome my battery has been (running original OTA1 which let me still use unrEVOked 1.0 to get simple root all this time). I am finally on 2.2 and I'm disappointed with battery life now. WiFi is WAY better but that is about it. :\ My Nexus One does not suffer from 2.2 battery blues.. It is doing great!

    If I backup with TB and do a wipe/flash to some other ROM you think I could just restore from TB and be up and running again?

    Hey fellow Austinite! I too had a battery drain issue with some kernels (I think that was one I had). As soon as i updated to the newest OTA rooted rom and put King HAVS #10 I have had awesome battery life. I have never had such a good battery. Not sure if the new OTA fixed it or the kernel fixed it but it's great now.
    Not sure about your question though. I just wiped and started over.
