Just wanted to let people who are new to rooting and flashing about something I figured out. I rooted my phone about 3 or 4 weeks ago and the first week i stayed with the stock rom. my Battery life stayed about the same. Then i got into flashing roms and noticed that my battery was only lasting about 5 to 6 hours. This made me start flashing kernels and set cpu and trying all different combo's. still maybe 7hrs at best so then i decieded to try aosp roms because i read about crazy battery life with them but never realy got the time to completely set them up and nandroided back to mikg2.xx and golden monkey1.1. Well this week i havent done much with flashing and realized I wasent chargeing my phone all day. This is when it hit me that ive been using my phone like before i was rooted. example: today Ive done about 50 text, 5 or 6 phone calls, about 20mn on web, checked facebook 5 or 6 times, took 3 pictures, and looked up and used navigation for a 30min ride to a hardware store, Also i have people, weather, calender, text, calc and book mark wigets on. Im at 11hrs 29mn on battery and still have 42% left. So I now blame the bad battery life on me having all this fun checking out all the great roms and kernels out there and not giving the a chance to give me any kind of good battery life. Sorry this is so long but i just wanted to share and say dont blame the rom or kernel so fast it might just be you enjoying this new found fun.
