In regard to the latest update does anyone know specifics about what they changed?

Yeah they improved battery life, but what did they actually change?

Before the update I was lucky to make it 4 hours of listening to music on a charge.

Last night, after patching, I made it all the way thru a 9 hour shift while listening to Pandora, and still had 15% left.

Omg :eek:

It seems they may have tweaked that mediaserver. Normally it would rape the battery, often using 60% or more, while Pandora would only use 25%.
But this time it was only at 28%

Also, I noticed when I came home and plugged my phone into my computer via USB, the keyboard back light would turn off

When I unplugged it, back light came back on. (This was a pitch black room btw)
It doesn't do it with the wall charger, just USB.

I dont recall this happening before they tweaked the keyboard lights, anyone else notice this?

So I guess it would be nice to know specifics about what they changed with that too.

I don't know specifics, but I also noticed improvements with the mediaserver. I was having trouble with the battery draining rapidly for no good reason after running Pandora. So far so good after the patch. Also, gps lock fix.

Oddly, they don't mention the gps I mentioned above, even though my location lock time has gone from "wait..." to instant.

It appears no body knows, or has bothered to look

I guess the next question is how do I go about doing this.

Curiosity is killing me
