It's because it utilizes Bryan's SMS KJ6 RC3 kernel. It's a known "issue" with that kernel. A couple of previous versions of that kernel had a random reboot issue. Unfortunately the "fix" (doesn't really fix the crux of the issue per Bryan but rather prevents the issue from occurring) causes the battery drain.

Iirc, it's not rc 3 that drains the battery.. That was 0.2.0 - rc3 still has potential reboots.

Unless you use BLN, I'd say going back to icbinb is probably a good idea for stability and great battery life.

It sounds more like something else is going on. I'm on FB's build also, w/ the same modem and kernel but my battery lasts just fine. So it isn't the rom or the kernel.

Also try fix permissions in recovery.

Yup. Working on it. It's a pita...

(rather... there are some kernel issues, and some rom issues.)
