    So I'm running the last stable version of rootbox. 20130805. Been great. Till I started playing Survival Craft. After about a week of playing I noticed my battery was under 15% and I was plugged in... WTF? I then continued to play (while plugged in) and the pos shut down from lack of juice. But I was charging the whole time. So now I can't do anything unless I'm plugged in. And the only way to get it to charge is to have the phone off. It started with the game and now I can't even surf the web without it starting to die (while on charger.

    Now my gf has on too. So I thought let's try a different battery... wrong still does it. Different charger.... nope! Different battery + different charger... NOPE!

    So then it's gotta be an application or the rom right? Probably Survival Craft but I don't even see it in my battery stats. And the battery stats are crazy. Like my screen is taking 60% and up. and my battery life chart is pretty much straight down to 0%...

    What's going on?

    I would try adjust your screen brightness and screen timeout.

    Where have you been? And those are the first things I did. Lol. Idk what else. I tried to flash a new rom like vanilla rootbox but themes wouldn't work right. Statusbar wouldn't take themes. And reboot/freezing all over on vanilla and pac man roms. Thx for the quick reply... BTW you still doing 187mod? That's the thing that got me to finally take the leap and root my shtuff. Never looked back either... lmfao.
    ............. ^^^^^
    Not a typo lol.

    That's weird, PAC ran great on my sprint S3 with lean kernel. Never tried root box, burn out the internal SIM card after doing the 4.3 update. Waiting for my new replacement S3 now.

    Btw: Sorry bro, I have been mad busy. I just got my desk top back up and running the other day (had to format and reinstall everything) and got me a shiny new Lenovo S210 Touch (which I just got setup with Windows 7 ultimatex64 and 64 bit Linux mint), so I will be re downloading all required source code to both my computers (so I can work on it on the go as well) and I will hook you up with what I have. Sorry about the disappearance, this is always a busy time of year for me.

    Hey please help I am running your 187Mod on the Prevail, with respect to your original config, I have added a overclock mod to the ROM but that's it, yet I plugged in my new Bluetooth Headphones and the sound seems stuck on blast. I have tried as many apps that Supposedly "control" volumes with more failures than I would like to admit. Is the overclock doing this? any advice would be very much appreciated. I love your mod and would very much like to keep it. plz help???

    It may be. I have never had anyone else mention a problem with the volume.
