    Default Extreme battery drain since Jailbreakme?

    Its been 1 hour since I jailbroke my iPhone 4, and there has been an outrageous battery drainage issue. I've gone from 66% down to 24%. I am wondering if it may be one of these:

    •AndroidLock XT
    •My3G (which is not running and hasn't been)
    •Nexus S (Theme, includes moving wallpaper)

    Jailbreak can cause a slight change in the battery performance, but usually not a drastic change. If you used Cydia a lot after you first Jailbroke to download apps and search that might explain why it went down so quickly for you this time.

    Default Same here (iPad2)

    I used it on my iPad 2 and the battery life was unreal, closed all apps, rebooted etc. NOTHING. Unjailbroke then restored and all is good now. Something is up. Your not the only one.

    Try removing one app at a time and see if it improves things. Winterboard is the most likely culprit, IMO.

    Try using redsnow to jailbreak. And do the exact same and notice the difference.

    Use jailbreakme only for iPad 2.
