    So I just updated my rooted Droid from SS 4.7 to 4.8 and im starting to have major battery drain. Last night before I went to bed my phone was at 90% and when I woke up it was down to 40% I have no idea what is making my phone do this but it is getting to the point where I have to be constantly charging. I even have the ulowv 0.8 kernel as well, cause I thought that would get me the best battery life but it hasnt at all. I have the CPU set at max 800 and min 125. Does anyone know a fix for this?

    Battery use it says was:
    47% Android OS
    18% Display
    9% Android system
    7% phone idle
    7% Cell standby
    4% Browser
    2% Dialer
    2% Launcher
    2% Keyboard

    sounds like a bad app running in the background. Try rebooting the phone, if this doesn't work I've had luck fixing this problem by doing a batch b/u with titanium because I think it will close each app as it backs it up.

    I agree. I've been using 4.8 with Chevy's ulv 1.25Ghz kernel since it was released and my battery life is excellent. It will last 24 hours with moderate use. I think SS 4.8 is the best ROM that I've had on my phone so far. :D

    Well I tried using Titanium Backup but still did not work, I even went back to SS 4.7 because I did not have any problem with it then but now the problem is happening with 4.7 I have no idea what this could be but its really frustrating because I go to bed with my phone charged and I wake up and its about to die. Please I need some help!

    hmmm maybe try a different kernel. Or due a fresh install of 4.8 and wipe data and cache a couple of times to be sure, try the 1.0 kernel that comes with the rom.

    Well I did a system restore and now my phone is all sorts of messed up. It wont let me update the stock ROM because when I try to I just get the exclamation point. Then when I try to install a different ROM it gets stuck on the Motorola sign in the beginning and stay frozen that way. So now I'm going to have to do another system restore just to get my phone working again. Wish I tried the juice defender before hand. Ugh this a bad experience with rooting.
