Hello, xda.
[i9100, Team Win Recovery Project v2.7.0.0, any recommendations for different kernel? and what show i do in order to change kernel?]
using a great guide, I installed neatrom AOSP 4.4.2 in my galaxy s2,
everything is great and seem very stable, BUT:
the battery drains really fast. also sometimes when rebooting i loose about 40%.
once the battery wasnt charged and after rebooting (and loosing 40%)
the battery raised from 22% to 23%.


while charging in my car today and using waze, the batter dropped... (WHILE CHARGING..)
the battery is really old (1.5YR) but its not the problem, the phone looses a lot of battery while idle.
any help?
(I wanted to buy BBS but its simple for me to buy online right now during credit card issues..)

Thanks in advnace!

Please tell me there is a way to change my username xD

Aosp roms use battery like is nothing. Get BBS for battery stats and what's draining you're battery so quick. Sudden battery level drop means bad battery. Will need replacing soon. Ask a mod to change names. Most will help you with this. :thumbup:

You definately have the right idea. There is a free version of BBS here on xda. Just search BBS thread. And don't forget to enable root feature in settings...

all Kitkat roms have a battery drain ..
so if u want the best battery life u should go back to 4.1.2 .. like WizzedKat Rom or any stock rom..
and use Apollo Kernel
if u want to go back from kitkat to 4.1.2 u should flash PhilZ Recovery and full wipe )

I will soon upload my bbs logs, I made a test and the phone consumed much less battery when the sim card wasnt inside.
is there anyway to cancel all background apps or to reduce cellular data usage for apps?
