Hi Guys

Well, after witnessing incredible battery life on latest HebMIUI (mostly taken from Pimp My ROM and Adrenaline Injector), I decided to make a flashable for the rest of the ICS ROMs we have here.
I must say I also use the LB6 modem which is known to give good battery life, so you are advised to install it too, but, it's your call.

I also add here AutomateIt app, which lets you decide what the device will do for certain events (open/close wifi/3G/4G/screen/charge etc.) which you can utilize to save battery life.


links to modem & sources:
SGH-T959W LB6 modem
HebMIUI ROM
PimpMyROM
Adrenaline Injector
AutomateIt


I take no responsibility for any damage claimed.
Tested on MIUI, AOKP.
Make a nandroid backup and flash it via CWM/TWRP.
Let it soak in for 1-2 days and let me know what you think.

Installed on Remics without any issues. Will report back on the battery life in a few days.

i'll try it later.

Currently (CM9 latest rel), Sitting on a desk with full 4G on a 2300 mAh battery, I get about 2-3 days of usage. Plus a few calls and texts.
At school in and out of e, 4g, and deadzone, I get down to ~65%. Then I need to reboot to stabilize or else it will continue to drain at the rate and I'll be dead by the end of the day.

LB6 did nothing for my battery life but I was getting incredibly slow data, so I reverted to KJ4.

I am thinking of padding KC1 and trying it.

Yeah, I also experienced a freezing boot right after flashing on AOKP, but it happens only once & then everything is fine on next reboots.

Has anyone figured out how to not make the phones battery drain overnight? For me if I leave it unplugged overnight it goes down around 20-30%. I've heard that you can use the app setcpu to underclock the phone when the screen is off. Has anyone ever tried this with our phone?

Hi Pisher

AutomateIt is exactly for this cause. You can set it to close wifi when screen is off on a specific late hour and open when morning comes for example...

Just saw this one as well -

Yes, SetCPU has wonderful profile modes!

You'll never regret buying SetCPU!
