Battery Questions
Advice and troubleshooting battery issues. Any contributions welcome, please see links in "Other Resorcess" for detailed information.

Disable HSDPA
In the phone dialer enter code: *#301279#
Click [2] CHANGE HSPA REVISION
Click [1] HSPA OFF
Battery Calibration
Remember, always flash with a full battery.
USE phone heavily. Use it till the system turns OFF automatically
Turn OFF phone
Charge till it says it is FULL
Start phone in RECOVERY Mode
Select Advanced CWM Features
Select Wipe Battery Stats
RESTART phone
Other Modem
The JPD modem has been reported to give better battery life.
Gallery Issues
Thumbnails and some database's could get corrupted making the media scanner running berserk, resulting in battery drain.
Delete the following:
dbdata/databases/com.android.providers.media
dbdata/databases/com.cooliris.media
And clear the thumbnails folders on sd cards.
I have created a CWM script to do this for you - Gallery Cleaner

Bump Charging
One technique that has gained popularity in the user community is "bump charging." To bump charge a device do the following:
Turn it off completely
Plug it into a charger.
Wait until the green battery sign says 100% . DO NOT turn the device back on.
Disconnect and immediately reconnect the power cord. (The device will now accept more charge before saying it is full.)
50% Battery without Signal
Well Known Froyo bug that started from the very first firmware release shows phone as 50% time without signal on cell standby when you check in Settings > About phone > Battery use

Apparently this can occur anytime after unplugging your phone from charge so I always do 2 things to fix this and so do many other users.
Turning Flight mode off and on.
In the phone dialer enter code: *#*#4636#*#* > Scroll down a bit >
Select Phone Info
Select "Turn off radio"
Select "Turn on radio"
Exit

With 0.3.1 I downloaded and applied Generation X theme through ROM Manager, using ADW EX I got everything Force Closes.

Had to install from scratch and use yesterday's backup so not a big problem. Just advice to make a backup even when applying themes (which I didn't this time because I couldn't imagine how bad was it going to be )

ANNOUNCEMENT: Bug Fix
Not sure how many if any at all have noticed this but its been driving me nuts.. anyway, in the NEXT release this WILL be fixed!!

If you remove the Email.apk file then apps like Barcode Scanner Force Close, this ment that you had to restore Email.apk or stop using the Barcode Scanner app.

nitr8 has found a fix for the libcamera.so file which allows the removal of Email.apk but still letting Barcode scanner work..

Aint he kleva!

Gallery Issues
If you a Flash Addict there is a chance that the thumbnails may become corrupt, due to frequent flashing adn contribute to heavy battery drain.

Delete the following:
dbdata/databases/com.android.providers.media
dbdata/databases/com.cooliris.media
And clear the thumbnails folders on sd cards.

Nitr8 please add this to the list:

2. Turn the radio off and on by putting this code into your dialer *#*#4636#*#* > Phone info > Scroll down a bit > Turn radio off and on.

For 100% Assurance I always do this after charging my phone to avoid the bug

Great work on the rom, guys!
Only I have an issue where my OC settings get messed up at boot, when using xan's voltage app.
It boot's at 100mhz everytime. Also, when I set the boot settings in voltage app, the S_volt_scheduler file updates correctly, but when I reboot the values within that file change, disabling every state, causing it to run at such a minimal speed.
None of this occurs with stock JPY+ SOK 6.1 so I'm guessing it's an issue with your ROM.
Thanks in advance!
