Okay, I've been meaning to ask everyone about this for a while now. Has anyone noticed extremely high cell standby use in battery stats? The reason I ask is, when I am running a sense ROM it reads right around 5% usage. But when I am running any AOSP ROM, it usually between 35-40% and causes me to get really poor battery life. Has anyone else encountered this? Thanks for any info.

I've flashed just about everything available for Mt4g except the ICS ROM's. I'm running team Inferno's arhd at the moment, but have in the recent past tried coredroid, tdj's sense ROM and a few others as well as cyanogenmod, MIUI, and some other AOSP roms too. I get great service in my area, and this has been an issue on all three mt4g's I've had.

I remember someone posting on here about sense or aosp roms, that you could open titanium backup and delete something called "Google Backup Transport" to help a lot of battery issue. I'm not sure if its related to what your problem is though..

Well, I removed the Google transport apk. Looks like I have the same problem with really high cell standby. I'll keep looking for fixes, but until then, I guess I'm running sense.

Look into getting BetteryBatteryStats (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1179809). This will help you figure out exactly which process is draining your battery, as it isn't always Google Transport.

Also, this is a long shot since you said you have this issue on all AOSP ROMs, but have you tried changing the kernel just to see if that makes a difference? I know each ROM comes with a different kernel, but maybe there's a combination of ROM + other kernel that will work for you, instead of the default. I know that was my issue at one point.

On the AOSP Roms I always thought that it was normal for cell standby to be the highest battery drainer in the list because that's just how it was reported for some reason. I could never get the Display's battery drain to be higher than the cell standby. But either way I got the same battery life whether I used Sense or AOSP. The only difference was that AOSP just displayed the battery usage wrong.
