Hey all,

Since unrooting my phone the battery seems to go down a lot faster, now I didn't clear anything off the phone once I added the new firmware so that maybe the issue.

When I look at the battery meter it's saying most of it's being used by android services, can anyone help me sort this?

Cheers
Paul

Hi,

Try recalibrating your battery . To do it, just let it fully discharge, then charge it completely while turned off (battery icon will pop up). After it you'll let it discharge completely again and do the same. I don't know if it's really the method, but always worked for me .

Yes used stock firmware to unroot everything and went okay but now my battery doesnt last long and wondered what I can potentially try to sort the issue out. I have tried letting the battery drain as above.

It's not.

Charge to 100%, pull battery, charge again to 100% while off. Battery calibrated. Fully discharging only damages your battery.

Yes I have done this also.

I have now done a factory rest and wiped everything clean so I will report back with my findings. Fingers crossed.
