    Default Iphone 4s better battery life on ios6?







    Jailbreakers will be pleased to discover that iOS 6.0.1 can already be jailbroken by using existing versions of Redsn0w. Currently, only the iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th gen, and iPhone 3GS are supported, and youll have to point Redsn0w at the older 6.0 IPSW, but otherwise the process is pretty much the same as any other recent tethered jailbreak. The simple walkthrough below guides you through the process, but the Redsn0w app itself also is fairly explanatory these days.



    Before beginning, its a good idea to perform a manual backup, this lets you easily undo the jailbreak without losing anything. Use iCloud to backup manually or go the traditional route with iTunes, but dont skip this step.



    http://osxdaily.com/2012/11/01/ios-6-0-1-released-with-bug-fixes-for-iphone-wi-fi-problems-no-service-issue-etc/"]Update to iOS 6.0.1 [/URL]if you havent done so yet, use OTA, iTunes, or with the 6.0.1 IPSW

    Get the latest version of redsn0w (https://sites.google.com/a/iphone-dev.com/files/home/redsn0w_mac_0.9.15b3.zip?attredirects=0&d=1"]Mac OS X[/URL]) (Windows)

    Get a local copy of http://osxdaily.com/2012/09/19/ios-6-ipsw-direct-download-links/"]iOS 6 IPSW for your device[/URL]

    Launch Redsn0w, click Extras, then Select IPSW, and choose the iOS 6.0 IPSW file you just downloaded, then go back to the main Redsn0w screen and choose Jailbreak

    Follow on screen instructions to enter DFU mode by holding the Power button for 3 seconds, then while holding Power also hold the Home button for 5 seconds, finally release Power button but hold home button for another 15 seconds, Redsn0w will notify you when DFU has been successful

    Be sure to check auto boot in Redsn0w to automatically boot the device tethered upon restart, if you missed that step go to the primary redsn0w window and select Extras followed by Just Boot to boot tethered

    When iOS reboots you should find Cydia on the home screen, signifying the jailbreak was successful. If you dont see it or it doesnt launch, you probably didnt boot tethered, which is required. The whole tethering thing is the primary downside to these types of jailbreaks, as youll need to connect it to a computer with Redsnow each time the device reboots or runs out of battery.



    If you decide to undo the jailbreak, just connect the iPhone or iPod touch to the computer and choose Restore, selecting the most recent backup stored locally or within iTunes.

    6.0.1 is the latest. Although some may still be rocking plain 6.0.
    Overcame my Crackberry addiction by realizing that my device just had to work. If iPhone/iPad owners are sheep, then I just joined the flock.

    I think it looks good but we'll see. It's all about how you are using your phone and what features you really need.

    Creative, your profile says your still on 5.1.1. Did you upgrade to 6? If so, that's pretty good battery stats

    I updated iOS 6 with Gold Master last week so I've been using it for a while now on my iPhone 4S, and yes, the battery does drain faster. I did a restore from backup, but people say to install as new phone... I just wanted to keep my stuff.

    Well, like i said it's all about how you're using your phone. The most important thing that i did was reset all settings (general->reset->reset all settings). After that i just optimized my phone accordingly to my usage and what i need. So you should consider this:

    - general-> privacy-> location services (if there's anything you're not using just disable it.) Also go to system services. In my case everything but cell network search is off.
    - don't push your e-mail. My advice is to fetch every 30min/1h. Just test it and you'll see the difference.
    - Wi-Fi/3G - disable when you're not using it, especially 3G. It really helps to extend your battery when for example you're at home and have Wi-Fi.
    - bluetooth, personally i haven't used it since i got my phone so it's off.
    - brightness, my is about 25-30% and i used to it, it's really not a big deal + auto brightness is off
    - notifications, i'll not talk about it because everyone need difference things.
    - music-> EQ-> OFF
    - auto-lock-> 1 min

    I have one reminder based on a location, i have siri enabled, i'm browsing + messages + phone. All this and my battery it's pretty good. Hopefully it'll stay this way as long as possible.
