The normal governor (ondemand) was sticking my CPU at only the minimums and maximums no matter what. The conservative governor, however, works beautifully. Those of you having heat issues, (and those that are stuck at min & max frequencies) try installing an app like SetCPU or System Tuner (I use the pro version of the latter) to change your governor to conservative, and see what happens. I was watching the CPU clock speed go all over the place after switching to conservative, not just min & max. Battery life increased by a pretty decent margin after setting it to this. The only thing is, it's slower to scale up when you turn your screen on; you get like a half-second to a second of it being choppy while unlocking it, then it's fine. I'm utterly content with that. Battery life is sick, now.

However, I still have the charging problem with my stock 3.8v battery. I have the official extended battery which is 3.7v, and it charges up to full perfectly. Pull it out and stick the 3.8v stock back in, charging problem comes back. I could care less about that right now, as the ROM is great in every other way; I'm glad my Bluetooth streaming (I use it with my car stereo) works again, hopefully we can get a speakerphone fix that doesn't break BT again soon.

Hold on...

1. So you are saying you get much better results with Conservative? I can so easily hard code that into the ROM if more people can test it and verify.

2. Your 3.8 is not charging with the current stock kernel?

What is your screen set at. Usage is showing
1200 mah, which is more than the charger can give. Most I've seen usage wise is about 900mah.

Scott, do you have anything installed on your phone? That is ridiculous battery life.

with the phone in my pocket then 5 seconds later down to 15%
Even had VZW replace battery, same issues.

Here's the weird thing, RRU'd back to stock and getting same results.
I've never got more than 8 hours with mild use on any rom with this phone. But the heat, massive drain, didnt start til ICS 4.0.3 rom.

Bad Phone? Something with ICS? Getting replacement tomorrow so we will see.
Should I flash new phone to ICS? Any ideas?

What apps are you installing. Some apps you wouldn't think, like any of the with friends games drain battery like crazy just running in the background.

When you say ridiculous do you mean good or bad?

Yeah, I have about 20 apps installed. Sync mail, no facebook or twitter, 4G always on, and was used for 3 hours of podcast last night.


HEre is where I am at right now:

I just did it with mine. The change was instantaneous. It went from the extremes to being able to see the fluctuations.

The governors in the ICS kernels def don't appear to be working properly. I agree Conservative for the time being seems like the way to go.

Good feedback. Anyone else want to chime in on this?
