I had a similar experience. I installed the version before the 6/14 and was amazed, but when I installed the 6/14 version, I noticed the battery life immediately worsen. I had also put a new battery (best replacement BLP637 I think out right now by Polarcell), so I attributed it to the battery because every replacement I've had was a disappointment (they would either drop like a rock after 15%, stay around 80-90% then drop off like a rock, shut off at 6%, etc.).Rapid battery discharge issue - follow up from previous post 475.
Starting about Aug 15, I began experiencing an abnormal battery drain. A full charge was lasting about 4-6 hours where normal was about 24-36 hours. The culprit, according to battery usage was Google Play Services. Clearing cache and data for this app and Google Play Store did not change anything.
I had been running the June build for 2 months with no issues till this problem occurred. I had not added any new apps or made any major changes in usage which would account for this.
I had the same issue on a previous build but the next day a new build was available and after installing it (dirty), problem was gone.
A few days ago I did a wipe (data, cache, dalvik) and reflashed the June build over itself. I restored settings and apps from a Google backup (done just before the wipe). Unfortunately the problem with rapid battery drain still persisted.
I installed the new August build on Tuesday via flashing in TWRP (actually via the updater script) and in the 4 days since then, my battery drain has returned to normal (24-36 hours) - hurray!!
So now I am left wondering what caused this. Considering the above events, I am left with the following conclusions (unproven of course):
- after a month or more on the same PE build, battery drain becomes abnormal
- reflashing the same build over itself DOES NOT rebuild/replace the software that is causing the problem
- flashing a newer build DOES rebuild/replace the software that is causing the problem
Should this problem reoccur again, I plan to do the following to prove/disprove my conclusions:
- flash the previous build
- after booting, flash the current build, restore and see how battery behaves
Posting this primarily for info sharing, however any questions or insights are welcome.
Afaik, you can install the OnePlus launcher but only old(er) versions of it. I highly recommend getting used to the pixel launcher with it's built in search, AI functionality, Google news and the at a glace widget.I was in OOS 10 until I decided to move to a custom ROM and I chose this one. Until now 5 days that I am using it, I think it is a perfect alternative if you get used some minor things such as gestures and double tap to sleep. Also, I think that the battery is draining a little faster in comparison with OOS but I will give it a little more time to settle. What I would like to know is if it is possible to install OnePlus Launcher somehow. Great job!
Thanks for sharing.started using with config XML files.will let you know if I face problems
