I made some changes to my phone in the last few days: upgraded to Jerry's latest, installed tvall's kernel, removed my OC settings (back down to stock settings) via CPU Master, etc...
My battery seems to be dropping much faster than I'm used to. When I checked my battery stats I noticed that the phone seems to be 'awake' almost constantly--even though it's screen-off and in it's case on my belt the vast majority of the day...
I'm not sure I'm really clear on what 'awake' and 'sleep' states refer to--should my phone be this awake this often? (attached)
I'm used to having a battery in the high-70's to mid-80's after a full day of typical use....
Call Virgin Mobile.. Even if you don't have insurance they give you a 1 year warranty on the phone. I don't have insurance and just had mine replaced a few weeks ago due to a bad button. Call them up and they will do some troubleshooting and when it doesn't work they'll ship you one out. I got mine next day not incuding weekend
Remember, rebooting, installing apps, testing apps out after a new ROM install to see how they work, all this eats your battery up the first few days after installation. For example, the second or even third day, you may use apps you haven't since a ROM update/install, and so the cache and/or dalvik-cache may need to be rebuilt for that app, or the app may need to do extra communication with host servers to download data you wiped before installing, etc, all eating extra battery.
I've hung out here enough to know I should wait a few days before becoming concerned about battery usage... But this is, like, day three and I was wearing the phone most of the day (ie, not using it much). It's plummeting way quicker than I'm used to. I might restore my last backup and see if things are any different...
Here are a couple threads on doing the radio-only flash:
Edit: But after you have flashed the new baseband and call tech support back if they ask you about any of the new apps on the updated ROM like Books, or whatever else has been tacked onto it then you're on your own.
