Alright so I've been doing research online this week and haven't been able to fix it so I'm coming to you guys. I'll give you a little background to hopefully help speed up this process.

So about 3 weeks ago I rooted my Sprint LG Optimus G after having it for almost a year to get some better performance and battery life out of it. After getting it all setup, I noticed a huge difference and was even able to watch the movie Flight and two episodes of Family Guy off Netflix and my battery still lasted 9 hours that day.

Well last weekend after uninstalling some Google apps I soft bricked my phone. Thanks to the help of sawdey21 on the IRC I was able to get it back up and running with LGNPST. After getting it running, I switched launchers (from Holo to Nova) and also unlocked mine phone via FreeGee with TWRP. Since then, my battery life has been terrible. To give you a reference it took my phone 8 hours to fully charge last night while it was off (although since I unlocked it I have a new charging animation and after a few seconds of the animation, instead of shutting the screen off like it use to it now just goes to a black screen but is still on as you can see the brightness. It never shuts off). After unplugging it, an hourly later I was down almost 15% after just listening to music and after 4.5 hrs its at 30% and I just plugged it in. Today I have done nothing but listen to music and just period check/browse my phone.

Is it possible that the bricking messed up my battery? Or the unlock? I switched back to the previous Holo launcher I was using before and it made no difference. I've also unistalled several apps I downloaded since the bricking I thought could be causing it.

Has anyone ran into this or could help? My next step is to boot back into Download Mode and try LGNPST again. I would post pics of Battery Settings, WakeLocker and BetterBatteryStats but I can't since I'm a new comer.

Thanks!
