    He thinks it was more taxing on his phone's battery. He thought his battery drained quicker using that ROM.

    Not for me...and not for a lot of others.

    battery life is slightly down but not by much compared with before but my one problem at the moment is that I can't switch the phone off overnight to charge it, when I plug it in it switches back on. even switching off during charging doesn't work. think this used to happen with the 2.1 stock

    Hey ric, my roms been goin great aswel

    All until today..

    It was perfect. My phone was never better.
    Now for some complete obscure reason, my home button does NOTHING other than turn the back light on. And the lockbutton wont lock the screen, just turns screen off.

    I just simply did a reboot then all of this happend. and afew of my system settings went to default.

    So far I see noone with similar problem

    I am using WB v4, and I would say it chews battery a little faster than my last rom freeX10 2.2. My phone has gone from 95% to 68% in 4 hours. No phone calls, no texting, a little browsing and some email. But then again, my office is in a bunker and maybe searching for signals is killing the battery.

    A little faster??? It would take me 2-3 days to get my battery down that low on normal useage. Gimme a few hours on wifi and I could get it there but geez, that's ridiculous. I'm on WB v5.0

    well ive now had wolfbreaks v5 for about a week now and for some reason the battery doesnt seem to be lasting very well. today i unplugged the phone and the battery indicator said f for full then in the space of a couple of mins it was down to 93% and i hadnt done anything. have downloaded wb v6 so might give that a try but if the battery doesnt last with that then i will go back to v4. battery life was ok for that

    If you're battery went down that far, that fast, you def need to recalibrate!

    [​IMG]

    As you can see in the SS above, my phone has been on battery power for about 7.5hrs and is barely down to 96%

    I'm on WB v6.0s, stock battery :cool:

    So I moved to v5, and did the calibration, but i only ever got to 77% doing the recal. I went from 95% to 55% in about 12 hours. Which wasn't bad. I was at work checking email, made a couple calls, etc. If it lasts me until I plug it in at night I am pretty happy.

    You're doing to overkill recalibration, I don't have time for all that. What I do is simple, when I notice a recalibration is needed I charge the phone to 100%, reboot into xRecovery with the charger still plugged in, wipe battery stats in xRec then unplug the charger and reboot the phone. Once the phone boots up I try not to use it as much as possible and let all of the power drain from the battery before charging it back to 100% without interruption. Battery recalibrated.

    Log time i didn't log on

    Well my phone broke right after i installled this ROM, i was trying the WIFI hotspot, it connected fine, after 2 mins it fried my motherboard.

    I'm not saying this mod was the cause of the fatal crash of my phone, but better be carefull with what i install on my phone

    not a bit, i had absolutly no issues with the battery drain, even better, my battery lasted longer (+1 day compared to 2.1 and + 2 compared to 1.6)

    ;)

    Now i.m running stock with SPB Shell 3D launcher... works flawlessly... i'm really tempted to go back to wolfbreak since it was defenitly faster...if only they had left the closing screen animation...

    First I ever heard of that, sounds like an unfortunate coincidence. Flashing WB will give you the closing screen animation, the CRT one, right? It's still there.

    yup, when i flashed the v3.5 it did not have it, maybe they added it since then, i guess i'll go for it. Just realized that the stock 2.3.3 is good only if you DON'T listen to music with the phone...terrible skips *nods*

    No sir, its always been there. When u first flash the rom and go into settings/display, animations will likely be ticked but the lock animation wont work until you untick it, lock the phone then go back to that setting and tick it again. :)

    Thats another great thing about the WB rom, he's added a tweak that gets rid of the music skipping, among others.

    lucky for me i had extra 3 mths extended warranty on my device and i had 5 days left on it, they simply gave me a new handset.

    Just upgraded to 6.0 S and installing back my apps...i don't know for now it seems a little bit slower than the 3.5 i had before...will keep testing
