Because I'm thinking that the problem is that the network connection of my phone is bad, which means it needs more power to get a proper signal. But I cannot see if that's the problem at better battery stats.

uh hell yeah....turn google maps off...not only is your phone searching for a signal but its also searching for a gps signal....that will severely drain your battery...for a lot fo users they turn of the location based services and ensure that gps is used on wifi or you turn it on only when you need to use navigation...turning off Google Maps will see a significant improvement in your battery..

Whats that dirty flash method all about?
Is it stable?

the dirty flash method is taking a fully functioning ROM settings and uses it for another...for example your on CM 10...everything works fine as far as the wifi settings, APN etc....its saved in a system file setting....when you completely wipe, that info is deleted and rebuilt once you run the new ROM....a dirty flash just has you flash over the ROM and not delete the previous ROM data, that way the new ROM can use it....so data from your apps, Wifi, etc will be used in your newly flashed ROM....its not something just discovered, dirty flashing has been around for quiet a bit and useful in cases where data like Wifi settings and stuff aren't working right....i was having wifi issues with the Rootbox ROM till i did a dirty flash and i'm good to go...sorry thats the best way i can explain it...hopes that helps
