[Q] HTC One X constant CPU load killing my battery
Now, I've been troubleshooting this issue for >3 months and I've lurked the forums as much as possible. I've looked over threads like the Google Services is Killing My Apps
but it doesn't really go beyond the surface of the issue. Now, I'm pretty good with linux/bash and I understand most advanced computing topics but I'm a noob as to the inner workings of droids. At this point I'm hoping that you guys can offer some enlightenment because I don't know what steps to take next. Here's what's going on:
Device: non-root ATT HTC One X
Now, here's the extra tasty bits of info:
CPU usage is always
very high. Here's some averages throughout the day,
CPU: ~10% usr: <10% sys: 1% nice: 90% idle: 0%
Load Average: some days it's floating around 2, other days floats around 5. Regardless of load average, the above numbers stay pretty much exactly where they are.
Now, I've uninstalled every
app. I've disabled Google Play, Google Play Services, and all other Google Services. This solved the issue except that after ~2 hours, I saw that Google Play and Google Play Books automatically re-enabled and re-installed themselves and the issue's occurring again. Sure, that means that I've sort of narrowed down the cause of this insane cpu usage but that doesn't get me any closer to knowing what to do to fix it. Anybody have any idea as to why google play is abusing my battery?
