I got pretty good usage today. I'm running the latest rascream build on the euroskank site along with trinity t12 (mostly at 1ghz and then at 1.2ghz for the last few hours of usage). I think the most important thing is to find out what apps are running while the screen is off so that there's minimal drain with the screen off. With my current setup I uninstalled maps from /system/app and reinstalled maps from the market and then I used autostarts to limit what apps I let run in the background. I tried disabling maps in autostarts when it was installed as a /system/app and that caused some drainage issues so I fixed that by doing what I mentioned and seems to be working quite well so far. I have maps disabled in autostarts now that it is not in /system/apps btw.

Which T-12 are you running? 50Hz or 56Hz?
Do you mess with the governor parameters or leave them as they are?
So, with Maps disbled in Autostarts, does it mean that you don't have location services running?

Anyway, I think rascarlo's ROM also helps a lot.
The colors are mostly black, which is a huge advantage for SAMOLED display.

I'm running the latest T12 which is 56hz. It's the one with voltage control that just got put in. I agree with the black helping and the inverted apps help as well. Governor parameters and all that are just left as is so on demand and deadline with the stock sampling rate and up threshold. Location services are turned on in settings if that's what you're referring to? So if the browser or some app needs my location it can still get it.

I honestly feel like you can if you have the brightness all the way down. I used to have an i9023 and I was able to get pretty decent screen on time. Also as a side note I've found that disabling maps in autostarts may not be the best idea because sometimes on my phone maps will keep trying to restart itself which causes a wakelock that doesn't go away.

Testing Ondemmand+deadline. Might move to Milestone 5 soon... For a polished more stable ROM. We shall see. I'm also looking for a Wallpaper I like. Something black with a hint of multiple colors (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow). If you want to share something... Yeah :P.

Nexus S (GSM i9020a)
GummyNex (1.0.2 - 4.0.4)
Matrix Kernel (CFS - 19.5)
Lionheart tweak (1000/100)
Deep Idle (Off - Noop)
