Default [Q] Need Support

hello , i have a question, i have an samsung galaxy s3, it is loaded with
googy max kernel 1.7.3
android 4.1.2
basebandver. i9300ceemg2

but recently it acts wierd

the phone de-charge pretty fast, even when connected to charger or usb device it decharge if phone is on,
on full charged battery you see it de-charge pretty fast like 1% every 10-15 mins,,
i can't charge the phone while its on i need to turn it off in order to charge the battery

what i have done sofar is

swap original charger to an other one
changed usb cable
resetted the kernel to stock

but none helped sofar,
could this be that the battery is broken? or that there is an process that takes alot power im not aware off? or is charging firmware related that the firmware encountered a bug ?

Could be a number of things causing your problem...I would suggest making sure you are on stock rom and kernel and install one of these apps >> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...erbatterystats << PAID or >> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...m.gsamlabs.bbm << FREE. You can monitor your phone to see if any app is draining your battery ( would give it at least 24hrs to test) then if it is a app you can uninstall or delete that app.

It sounds like to me it could be battery or hardware problem especially with you returning to stock and also discharging while plugged in..

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Then you need to return to stock to see if the problem is still there if it is then most probably hardware issue.

Give it a try it nothing to lose and (don't forget to backup your data) use a battery stats software after you have reset.If the problem is still there and its not any apps that are causing you problems flash to stock to be 100% sure it's not software....

so i reboot into recovery mode of cwm , but should i wipe cache or just data ?
lols, full charged, and still connected to usb and battery drained 10% already eventhough its wierd, i mean my usb ca n handle it , normaly when its full charged i can play games and battery don't de-charge, and now its idle and it de-charge in a fast rate, but yeah if it are apps then phone should be hot but it totaly isnt

Wipe both (backup contacts and data first) but if it is draining that fast most likely hardware or battery (suggest new battery first)
