Limera1n Battery Issue?
I know this always comes up but my phone was fully charged and I took it off charger at 1030am. By 254 pm my battery is at 44% and Ive only played a game for maybe 20 minutes and sent a few emails nothing big. I'm wondering if this JB is having battery issues with everyone or if I am just paranoid? I am about to restore and wait for Greenpois0n.

I just charged it fully and with 1 hr 36 min of usage with 4 hours and 16 minutes in standby I'm down to 77% battery.
This is garbage battery life. Not thinking I'll be keeping this. Might just restore and wait for Greenpois0n and see how that works out.
I tend to think it's not the JB but something that was installed with an app I downloaded. I'm going to have to investigate.

Hmm idk guys i jailbroke my Iphone 4 but my battery isnt dying out super quick, or maybe i just havent noticed. Even before the jailbreak the games are killer, but yeah lasted me all day yesterday from 8am to 4pm. Which doesnt sound like much but i was able to watch a full movie, 4 hours of music playing, texting, emailing, and Facebook.
But i do have the app sbsettings and im always adjusting my brightness, turning off 3g when not necessary, wifi when not at home etc to make the battery last longer.

I've noticed the same as the OP with Limera1n, the battery seems to drop a lot quicker. I'm considering a restore again tonight, and trying Greenpois0n. But before that, I'm draining the battery to zero and then fully charging and see how I get on then.

So, I don't really "get" the logic of less of a battery leak with Greenpois0n vs limera1n.
When Greenpois0n (aka SHAtter) was released, Chronic Dev announced that they re-worked Greenpois0n to use the same exact exploit that geohot put out to the world (limera1n). In doing that, they saved the SHAtter exploit in case/for when Apple patches limera1n.
Correct me if I'm wrong. Same exploit/JB, different way of delivering it.

Jailbroke my iP4 running 4.1 the day limera1n came out. Have installed: SBSettings, BiteSMS, Xpandr, FolderCloser. Unplugged the phone 5 hours ago to come to work and it's still at 99% charge. I'm not seeing any extra drain from limera1n.

For me it's been about the same. Don't really notice a change in battery life. I took it off the charger at 8:30am and now it's almost 1pm and im at 89%...it would say that's pretty good.
2 short calls ( maybe 3 mins total)
A lot of whatsapp messages
A little surfing
Some email (only read no reply)
So im ok i think

It's always the same after a new jailbreak. Some people seem to suffer with battery issues, others don't. All I can say is the difference is VERY noticeable. Nothing else has changed for me other then Limera1n jailbreak and a few well known Cydia apps.
It HAS to be Limera1n. No other reason. Would like to know if anyone has tried Limera1n, had battery problems, restored to factory and reapplied jailbreak this time using Greenpois0n? Has the battery improved?
