Remember this was explained before?

I am running apps2sd DT script which puts everything on the SD although its not the same as a normal apps on sd function its a symlink.

Now if setcpu has an issue with this I plan to set all the cpu stuff for screen off etc. but using tasker instead.

As I understand it putting apps on sd is quite common especially on the ace with its limited memory. No other apps have an issue with it.

I will be moving the cpu functions to tasker soon and will report back how well that works, if it solves the wake issue I will let everyone know.

Hi AceMates,

Have been using CPU Master Pro to underclock with the smartass V2 gov and noop I/O, max 480, min 122. This did help increase battery life a bit.

A couple of days back came across this script on xda so just wanted to share...I apologize if this is not the thread where i should be sharing the following -

Would suggest Ace users to check it out yourself and then take a call whether it improves battery life or not. My Ace rarely lasted over 6-7 hours without a recharge (mid to heavy usage - wifi, calls, surfing, chatting, music, youtube, etc.). With this script by PureMotive, the first day i got more than 16 hours with the same mid to heavy usage and there was still some battery to go...

Am using Itasoulos GREAT Miracle V3 ROM with the Ace Kernel beta3.1 and the puremotive script. Somehow, this combination is working to increase not only battery life but overall phone performance as well. dont go by the comments on puremotive script thread...check it out for yourself...it has done wonders for my ace....but i feel it is more the combination of V3, the ace kernel OC and the battery script...

The Ace Kernel OC link - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1606352

PureMotive Script - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1622882

A BIG THANK YOU to all the DEVs and MODs for the great work that you guys are doing to make the ace a better device overall.


Peace, Love, Respect

Of course you'll get 16h. You're not even using your data connection.

Anyway, the real battery saver here is Stocklite V6 with no scripts. Got 12h on 3G WITH REGULAR USE. Meaning texting and browsing the web a lot. Got no scripts at all installed except for A2SD and not even underclocked either. 122-806 Smartass V2.

Scripts just give you the placebo effect. You think its working, but its not.

Happy as hell with my phone. Don't plan on fixing whats not broken.

The thing is that with the same wifi usage, i was not even getting 8 hours before... Now, after using puremotive with miracle V3 and ace kernel beta 3.1, I am getting 16 hours on a single charge. No 3g then, no 3g now...

Download the app called "Battery Widget" from play store, it can alert you when battery is truly full. And why would you need deep sleep (only useful for saving battery) while charging anyway?

EDIT: I see there are multiple apps called Battery Widget, but this is the one I mean: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...l3aWRnZXQiXQ..

How do you get to see which apps using battery power like in your first screenshot? mine only shows idle, sleep, display and voice usage, but no apps.

I have trialled using airplan mode overnight and found my drain after many days of usage to be consistently higher. It does slow down its drain during the night but I can only assume tasker does more work during the day checking the time etc. to know when to start as the overall drain is higher. Also I believe tasker and setcpu to conflict as when I changed tasker to foreground onitoring the wakelock issue goes away, so I get wakelocks when setcpu is on and tasker is in background, if one or the other applies but not both at same time is no wakelocks. However tasker in foreground slows down the phone noticebly and there is more drain. So I am back to no airplane mdoe, tasker background (for my profiles) and setcpu with wakelocks.

The main issue now is during voice calls I get huge drain. A 10 minute call drains about 5%, an hour call drains about 30% in one go. These calls usually with the screen off and speakerphone off. Something in android is really inefficient on battery power, because if I compare eg. to my nokia that has only a 800mah battery but it lasts way longer and things like phone calls dont cause huge chunks to drop out of the battery. So I have dropped my in call profile clock speeds to see if that been set too high is a cause. Since most of you guys use 3G etc. all day I might for a day leave wifi etc. on and just see how my battery lasts as that I have never tested.
