They will be. Custom ROMs help. Clean installs also make sure old data doesn't create small bugs here and there, it's always better but less convenient.In crDroid 6.11 idle drain is way better. 0.2%/h on average. Previously I used to get 0.5-0.8%/h. Wakelocks like qcom-step-chg still persist and I continue to block them. Idle drain would have been even better if not for the rapid 2-3% drop that always happens within a few minutes of unplugged the device. This time while clean flashing the update, as always, I didn't restore the Migrate backup. Instead reinstalled the apps from Play Store. Dunno if this played a part or not.
I didn't even have to flash MIUI as I had planned to check whether the wakelocks were there in stock ROM or not.
