Hi All,

I was having an issue the other day (before i wiped the OS) where the battery was draining immensely, even when the device was powered off.

I have been running CM10.2.0 for a few months, but one day I was playing music on the phone and eventually stopped it. However, the phone remained warm and in the space of 1-2 hours the battery drained. Eventually i was able to charge it again, but turning it on and using the phone found that the battery still drained quickly. When i turned off the phone, the back remained hot and eventually battery drained.

Has anyone else experienced this issue?
Is it a potential hardware fault or software?

GSam or BBS or any wakelock/battery detector would help to find the culprit. otherwise, it is really impossible to say.

I would expect it was a rogue application, but with no OS the same thing occurred - battery stayed warm when switched off and eventually completely drained.

Any ideas?

So you wiped the OS and left only with recovery and the battery still drained?
Sounds like a hardware failure to me.
