My Battery is not holding up anyone have suggestions?
Hey Guys I have virtually turned off almost everything to save my battery, but it seems to be losing it's percentage and charge very fast for example I would take it off the charger from my car park my car walk into a store and it already loses 5% like that. Does anyone have any ideas on how to preserve the battery any better? I have a 3G 16 gb jailbroken and unlocked with blacksnow thanks

That exact same problem happened to me a lot while I had my iphone 3gs jailbroken, some applications you have I used to have and sometimes they drain the battery too fast until you turn the phone off and on again. Some processes hang. I no longer have a jailbroken iphone since I changed mine with the warranty and got one of those new iphone3gs models that can't be jailbroken.
All in all, powering it off and on again.

It depends on what you're doing with Winterboard as well.
For example, whn I want to "show off" my phone, I turn on the movie backgrounds. (Like fire/flames, or 3D smoke movies as my wallpaper).
It EATS my battery like it's going out of style. 1% disappears every 2 minutes.

a tethered jailbreak is REQUIRED with certain new iPod Touch 3G / or iPhone 3GS's.
If your battery runs down or if the system is rebooted, you have to rerun the jailbreak program to get the device up and running again. this is due to the new bootroms that apple is using.
You're not "missing out" on anything. It can just be an inconvenience at times for some people.

To the others, yeah I know I can jailbreak, but tethered jailbreak is a pain.
Edit: Oh, advice winterboard is quite buggy, I have had all my iphone apps dissapear, but still be there using space, and when I resync they got copied again so there were two of each app, just one not visible and the other visible. It was weird.
