So, I've been continuing to research and change things to get the battery drain lessened. I am about down to 1% drain per hour if left alone. This is what I've done, any further suggestions would be appreciated:
Turned down the display...
Thanks, that was one of the versions I had tried, it still failed. I ended up removing the ROM, reinstalling, and then it worked.
Instead of using Kingroot, use Serophia's zip to get to lollipop...that way you aren't sending anything to the Chinese.
"You will have to backup your TA keys, unlock the bootloader via Sony methid, then, flash a custom ROM, then restore the TA keys."
If I remember correctly, if you flashed another ROM, you'd loose the TA keys and camera functionalit...
Ah, thanks for that veganarchy, I was going to attempt this... No I don't have too. :)
