Thanks Entropy and SteveUK and anyone else that helped!

When you say that "it charges too", what are you running when you see the phone charging? I'm trying to narrow down my issues, so if you could help me, that would be very much appreciated. I've tried several different scenarios.

What Hasn't Worked (lose battery %):

1. CM Default Music app playing (up to) 256kbs MP3s. Tasker task to do: WiFi on, Bluetooth on. Then I run Navigation app.

2. CM Default Music App. New Tasker Task to do: WiFi tethering on, Bluetooth on. I run navigation app.

3. CM Default Music App. New Tasker Task: WiFi off, BT on. I run nav app.

What Has Worked (battery successfully charges):

1. CM Default Music App. New Tasker Task: WiFi Off, BT on. No Nav app.

So the obvious difference is GPS. So my question to you is, are you running Nav and having the phone charge? Are your use cases the same as mine? If so, then I need to verify the amperage passing to the car audio cable. I appreciate any input you can give me on this issue. Thanks!

If its a placebo effect I still say thanks because it still seems faster to me. I use Waze (good for traffic reports) when driving home and it would take 2-3 minutes to lock, not a deal breaker. Today when checking dock audio I decided to check GPS while outside and GPS status locked in 33 seconds. I previously set GPS source to internal and used GPS status to delete aGPS and then downloaded and this had no affect for me.

Again thanks for fixing dock audio and a big thanks for doing nothing to GPS.

As to charging on the dock - without a doubt, it charges at 650 mA (just like on an AC charger), and it did so before the dockaudio patches. However Navigation with full screen brightness can use more than this, causing drain. No way to fix this on I9100/I777.

Reduce screen brightness, and underclock - I gain battery slowly or at least stay even if I limit CPU to 800 MHz when on AC. (Dock is treated as "AC charging")

Any chance we might get an option to scroll downwards through the app drawer like CM7 allowed? Not a fan of the sideways swiping.

Big thanks to you CM9 developers - this is a beautiful ROM.

Did you try settings> launcher> drawer> transition effect. There is bunch of other options there. I use nova launcher and the option is there to change it as well. Try to change in launcher settings if not get a different launcher like Nova ..practically identical to trebuchet launcher.. they have differences but very similar!

No placebo effect here. My gps locks in 6-15 seconds consistently today where I could not even get a lock in the prior two nightlys. Didn't reset or download new data... just ran gps status..

So I can do this with SetCPU and Tasker?

Edit: NM, I found the setting in the Task, Edit, ADD, MISC, CPU. I added CPU0 to ONDEMAND (which is apparently what the default is) and MIN to 500000 and max to 800000. I've also changed Screen Brightness to ~75% (190 of 255). We'll see if that makes a difference.

Ok, so I have to agree with you. I just downloaded GPS status, and went to the window (I am in an office building in the city).

Time to lock: 6s.
