Spare Parts Question

    I upgraded to 2.1 a few days ago, and installed Spare Parts app because it worked well for me with 1.5. However my battery was draining like crazy, (I think I'm one of the few unlucky ones whose battery life went down, not up, after the upgrade) so I decided to check spare parts. When I clicked on "Network usage" the battery gobbler was found to be something called "0" (bar almost entirely full). When I clicked on it, it force closed on me and have continued to do so. This elusive "0" never made an appearance during my 1.5 days so I suspect that to be the cause of my battery drain. Does anybody know what's going on? :thinking:

    What does your Time without Signal say?

    I did what you said, but it doesn't have a "time without signal" when I click on it. My cell standby time is 41% if that makes any difference?

    Click on that part, the part that says "cell standby 41%" and it'll open a new page.

    Clicked on "Cell Standby", Only thing that shows up is the Cell standby and underneath, "Use Details" which lists Time On as 12h 47m 35s....No time without signal, no amount of long pressing or pressing menu will bring anything up. :(

    Are you plugged in or recently plugged in???

    Anyways, there is a bug on some of the CDMA hero's that make it so the time without signal KILLS the battery. This was one of the issues I faced.... Give me a minute to link you to the fix (you can try it and see if it helps).

    I seen the same, '0' under Network Usage. It also Force Closes when I click on it under Spare Parts. My battery is actually better on 2.1. I do not know what the '0' is for but I don't believe it has anything to do with battery usage. You only want to be concerned with 'Partial Wake Time' from what I understand.

    Thanks for the link. I actually tried that trick once before which disabled my mobile networks or something (and quite a few others had the same problem) so I just ended up doing a soft reset after that. Oh well. Wish I could understand what the "0" on the network usage means.

    I thought spare parts only works with 1.5?

    I am running 2.1 and Spare Parts is installed and running.

    It is weird, my Time Without Signal is always 0%. I do not believe I have ever seen it any higher than that.

    I guess I am just lucky? Well, more like I live really close to a cell tower, I suppose.
