Yup. Thats all I did at the moment since I have't had a lot of time to mess around with trying out other launchers. I was also told to try uninstalling Go Launcher and then reinstalling it from the market. Haven't tried that out yet but may give it a whirl this weekend. I would try tsf shell but I'm not looking to spend $16.00 on a launcher just yet.

I would say wait on the tsf for a few more versions when they release the customization options. Right now there are not many Widgets, and no resize. But after that, 16 bucks ain't bad when you think about it. How much did your last legit CD cost from the music store or iTunes? Or last month's Netflix bill... and none of them really helped your phone.

Following some of this guide and tweaking a few settings myself, I've been getting a good 2 to 2 1/2 days of battery time from fully charged to 1%. Running Zeus Build 6 with the ICS theme. Good stuff

I had an Infuse when it first came out, loved it but the battery life was killing me. I couldn't get through 6 hours with barely any use even with a custom kernel. I switched to the Note when that dropped. I now have another Infuse as my backup phone because I love the feel and design (squared corners) but still found battery life to suck. However, I did 2 specific things from this list and I noticed a HUGE difference, too bad this wasn't around at first. The two that helped me where to freeze all the AT&T bloatware (minus the hotspot locator I need) and use wifi when possible. My battery usage is now on par with my Note, maybe better which is amazing. Seems like AT&T bloatware is a big culprit with battery usage. 4G is a killer but we already knew that, just not to the extent the Infuse shows.

The one thing I have never had an issue with is the battery life on the Infuse and I leave wifi, gps, auto-sync and all the stuff you need to use a phone when you want to use your phone on. I get 20-30 hours all the time and use the phone all the time.

did you install your stock root from here, because it has a cwm flash-able file that will del all the bloatware...

How are you running everything all the time and pulling that much battery out of the infuse. It's almost impossible. WIFI on 24/7 is never idle same with GPS. They are always searching for a signal or connection there for draining your battery. Please explain in detail the steps you have taken to be able to run everything 24/7 and obtain that kind of battery life.
