I uninstalled Google Search from system and installed from the Playstore, then disabled location reporting and my battery seems to go to normal draining

How to I uninstall it from system.
I have root of course. I tried root uninstaller from the play store but it just replaced it with the factory version.

you don't have to uninstall or install anything
just go to sittings\ security and disable Google reporting
that's all

Default a little update is coming

On PTCRB there is a new Version certified .233
Maybe this will fix the battery draining.

I was having this draining problem (happened out of nowhere, a full week after installing the 4.4.2 update).

Uninstalling Google Search and reinstalling it through the Play Store didn't worked (kept having Google Services draining more than 80%).

Setting Location mode to GPS-only didn't worked neither. Turning location off worked, but disabled my location-based apps, has expected.

What did worked for me was going to Setting -> Location-> Location Services (Google Location Report) and disabling both Location Report and Location History.

Now Google Services DOES NOT DRAIN more than 2% of my battery. CPU usage is always low (using CPU Spy Reborn, the 1512 MHz frequency step is pretty much around 2 - 3% of the time, as is the 1026 MHz frequency step - the remaining frequency steps are all at 0 - 1%, with 384 MHz (the lowest step) at 52% and Deep Sleep at 34% of the time).

All this with Location active on high-precision mode. Roughly 5h10min of usage (LTE always on), with PowerAmp playing for more than 4h straight, around 55min screen on and 15min or so of gaming (Zombie Gunship), and the battery is still at 72%.

With 4.3, with the same level of usage (moderate to heavy, I guess) the battery would absolutely be on the 60-65% range.

In other words, disabling both Location Report and Location History worked for me, with zero downsides with regards to location based apps (Google Maps, Waze and GPS Essentials all work perfectly).

Hope this helps. Best regards.
