After the 2.3.4 I downloaded today, I'm experiencing bad battery life. Is this just because I just updated or what?

The update breaks some google apps (verizon is blaming google of course) and they say they are "looking into it" my advice would be to stay with 2.3.3 if you don't want to unlock and root

What I did was restore the 2.3.3 ft, root it but did nothing else to it and then allowed the update to install. Maybe because I have a unlocked boot loader, but my 2.3.4 stayed rooted.

Mine as well this method does work.

And yes my battery life is TREMENDOUSLY WORSE with 2.3.4, and I also have some connectivity issues occasionally.
