Then will you please post in the Gravity box thread and ask the developer what logs will help him? Everyone who says they have drain so far have been 0 help to the developer. Please be the one to turn things around...

Just dropping by and I felt like I could give you some hints about potential causes of battery drain.
From my experience, I figured out that the only reasons when I experience higher drainage is soft-rebooting a device.
This is not GB related and can easily happen without running any xposed modules.
It seems like when doing soft reboot, the device is not initialized properly in some parts which can cause some unexpected behavior resulting in higher battery consumption.
The recommendation: avoid using soft-reboots as much as possible. Use normal reboot instead. It doesn't take a lot more time for the device to boot compared to soft-reboot, anyway.

Yeap I only had Xposed and GravityBox 3.0.0 installed since 2 days ago and i certainly noticed the really bad battery drain. The phone sometimes might even feel slightly warm even when I'm simply leaving it idling there...
Like thread OP, I checked using BetterBatteryStats but couldn't get any noticeable information about the culprit that might be causing incessant wakelocks. But admittedly I have been soft-rebooting quite often, so I'll try a normal reboot and see if the problem goes away. Else I'll install an earlier GB version to see if it fixes the battery drain.

Of course if you install GB and play with all the settings for an hour or so it will appear in your batt list. When done putzing give it a full charge to reset batt table and you'll never see it again.


good day.

Thumbs up
Update: I have tried this for 3 days now - I have re-enabled Gravitybox and only used normal reboot instead of soft reboot and the battery drain doesn't appear to be happening anymore.
Overnight while idling the battery is draining from full to 90% battery which is reasonable.

Seems like C3C076 might have been right after all, thanks matey! (+1)
