dlog_system only shows Power Manager messages all day e.g.

It's probably a different issue then. Mine and many other's battery drain was related to excessive contact sync happening over and over again... It's easy to check though, just kill goproviders process on the phone and see if this improves your battery life.
BTW, did you experience the high drain when you were on the stock (non-rooted) Gear 2 ROM?

Yes, it was few days ago with stock gear2 DD ROM. I think i will falsh Android Revolution HD and try again. On CM-11 even saproviders chrashes sometimes.. Maybe it's ROM related. Some poeple even complain it's not working properly using Samsung devices with custom ROM.

Have a look at your Gear 2 /var/log/dlog_main file. It usually contains pretty useful clues as to who's wasting Gear battery. Mine was full with contact sync related messages, that's how I determined the root cause and created a solution for it that was drastically reducing the frequency of contact syncs.

I will check again after flashing AHDR
btw.. dlog_system also contains Informational messages. dlog_main "only" warnings.

sh-3.2# cat dlog_logger.conf
dlogutil -b system -r 5120 -n 1 -f /var/log/dlog_system -v threadtime *:I
dlogutil -b main -r 3072 -n 1 -f /var/log/dlog_main -v threadtime *:W

Looking for resolving other outstanding issues, the next most pressing one is alarm notifications.
Hoping to get working Runtastic when the company releases the app.
Last, having all these health functions (sleep tracker/pedometer/HR) and not being able to use them on the phone is pretty annoying. Hoping to get S Health eventually working on non-Samsung phones...

Hi Dude,
would you please elaborate a bit more on the "combination of Tasker and Secure Settings allow you to switch from Gear and BT earpiece"? i have the same problem and it is quite annoying. search the site and found only problems reported but no fix solution.
thank you and you are the man!
