Hi there

I just like to share my experience with battery drain in both JVK and JVB and give you a possible fix.

I experienced battery drain both in jvk and jvb and when you go setting - battery check, I would see high android OS - up to 60 percent which just drank the juice out of my phone.

I've decided to test all the apps, deleting one by one in order to locate which app was causing this problem and I found it to be "software update".

So here is a possible fix for you guys who are experiencing similar problem.

Go to setting - manage apps - all apps - find software update - delete data

In both JVK and JVB it solved my battery drain problem almost instanly.
I also did battery recalibration but doubt it played any part.

I hope above method will solve the battery drain problem.



P.S

does anyone know what exactly software update does?
and how to delete it completely off the phone.
I doubt I will be using OTA update or anything like that since I'm a big fan of odin.

Cheers

Hmm, this "fix" was kinda known a long time ago? (you can see it even in the thread called something with Android OS and few more) http://goo.gl/Hpc5a . And I think its the OTA update which does nothing currently. Hmm, am confused about your question. You ask what it does then you say you wont need it anyway .

And for example freeze it with titanium backup? Now when click the option it does nothing (no fc and phone works normally)

Do you read what I wrote? The same way you can freeze it, you can delete it... Best with titanium backup, should be foolproof enough. Do a backup before etc.

Ok but is your Android OS usage high? like 40-60 percent? Or something else is high?
