Hi, can anyone tell me why is my phone not entering deep sleep? I've tested many roms and kernels and as far as I remember, they all have had problems with deep sleep in my device (E612g)

Here's Better Battery Stats dump after 13 hours of almost no use with xoxodemo's rom and OC kernel. (Reached about ~56% of battery charge)

http://pastebin.com/Hy1HHp9d

BTW: Battery usage in system settings says Android OS is draining the battery.

Ok, I'll try that. I thought deep sleep was an automatic thing in all phones...

I'll tell how it goes later ;)

EDIT: I'ts still not sleeping. I installed the app, set it to Slumberer (most aggressive setting) and it still doesn't sleep (or sleeps just like before having the app.. almost nothing).

Don't know if anybody also reckoned this on CM 10.1, but NFC can't be disabled. My e612 does not have NFC so it's useless... and problem is it's eating the most of my battery, 39%.

Anyone knows if there is a way to turn off NFC or if it's a bug still on the CM10.1 for our device?

Delete it using root explorer (or ES explorer)..nfc.apk and tags. In ES explorer,
1.touch the menu softkey.
2. Go to Root explorer.
3. Uninstall system app.

Delete them,reboot and voilà ;)

Well I'm no expert, and I don't see any wakelocks in your BetterBatteryStats log... Maybe check in your system settings, Wi-Fi, advanced Wi-Fi settings, if "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" is checked. If it is, uncheck it and see if it's still not going to deep sleep. I think one of your apps is constantly connected to the internet and prevents the phone from going to deep sleep.

Also, I've got the pro version of DSBS, and have the "Stop running apps" turned on. Not sure if the free version has this.

When did cm 10.1 come out for our device
Some 2 weeks ago. It's unofficial, by PecanCM, cybojenix and tudorsirb. PecanCM also released a 1Ghz OC kernel. Pinkflozd is working on his for CM10.1. It's much better than CM10. I suggest you update. All your apps and settings will be saved, so don't even worry about doing backups. Like flashing a new CM10 nightly (almost). Battery is 90% after 20 hours, and I'll see how many days it'll last me. I wake up in the morning with 100% - ZERO lost.

Well, I've got the wifi option unchecked now, the free DSBS version had the mentioned feature enabled and the problem persists.
I uninstalled Facebook and Google maps as I suspected them, but it seems it changed nothing.

Reboot, go to manage apps and disable all the running services except DSBS (and Settings). Lock phone and wake it up in about 2 minutes. Check if it's been in deep sleep or not (BetterBatteryStats has a nice widget to show you the stats, just tap on it to update it):

If it was in deep sleep, one of the apps you disabled is preventing it otherwise. If it didn't, I can't help, sorry.

It didn't work :(
The is a log file from BBS after ~10 minutes after boot.
It seems mmc1_detect and mmc2_detect are cousing some trouble...

How big is your SDcard? Download Media Scanner from Google Play and run that.

I'd also go into system settings and disable backup transport and syncing if it's on. Maybe try rebooting without the SDcard.

    [GUIDE] Flash Stock Firmware

    I am not sure if this has been posted before here.
    But I am posting, do comment if you find it helpful.

    Credit goes to the website: hackmyandroid.com

    Steps:

    1. Download LG Optimus l5 USB Driver for Windows | Mac.

    2. Download official LG Optimus l5 stock firmware from this page. The file would be a .kdz file. Download the appropriate firmware according to your network provider and country.

    3. Download KDZ updater and install it on your computer.

    4. The zip file has a Microsoft XML parser, make sure you run it as an administrator and restart your PC. This will solve the wparam 100 and lparam 6 issue mentioned in a comment below.

    5. The next step is to put your phone into emergency mode. To do this, remove the battery of your phone and re-insert it (don’t turn it on). Press and hold Volume Up button and Volume Down button. While you are pressing the two buttons, press the Power button. So now, you must be pressing all three buttons together.

    6. Your phone will boot into emergency mode and you should see a yellow screen with Emergency mode written on it.
    Pick up the USB Cable and connect your phone to the computer via the USB Cable.

    7. Pick up the USB Cable and connect your phone to the computer via the USB Cable.

    8. Run KDZ updater as Administrator.

    9. Choose the following options in KDZ Updater: Type: 3GQCT Phone Mode: DIAG and KDZ file is the one you downloaded in step 3. See the image below,

    Root-LG-P350-LG-Update.png


    10. Re-check with the image above and ensure that you have the appropriate settings on the KDZ updater.

    11. click on “Launch Software Update” button.

    12. This process is usually long. It take quite a long time for the firmware to be flashed on your phone.

    13. If everything goes well, you will see “Finished” written in the log screen and your phone will change to switched off mode from Emergency mode.

    14. The next time you turn it on, your phone will take a lot of time to reboot. Stay Cool! its normal.
