jailbroken A5 5.1.1 users; how's your battery life holding up?
typically the jailbreak tool itself does not cause battery drain. it is notorious that the jailbroken apps and tweaks we put on afterwards can cause battery drain
when i originally went to 5.1.1 i just did a simple update and noticed very little improvement. then i decided to a Restore as New Phone which made a significant improvement with battery performance
then came along the Absinthe jailbreak, which had me wondering how my battery performance would take a hit with my jailbreak setup. i am happy to say, SO FAR SO GOOD! but i am also one of those people who will get rid of a jailbreak once i see it affecting battery and overall usage.. we'll see how it goes

Mine seems okay. Maybe it's draining a tiny bit faster just because I used to be able to leave my iPod in airplane mode and the brightness all the way down on standby during the night and the battery wouldn't go down at all, but last night it went down one...not that big of a deal. I hardly think its because of the jailbreak anyway...

Mine is fine as far as I can tell. About the same it was when I was stock even tho I'm fully themed out with the Pages theme and have a few other cydia apps plus the iTunes/App Store apps. Seems all good, but I may need to adjust the time interval on the scrolling weather portion of the Pages theme.
Have it set to refresh every 15 mins, but may increase it to 30 instead.
Otherwise, all good in da hood.

Yesterday mine seemed to be draining pretty fast. but i have this feeling it was because of searching for some tweaks. today doesn't seem to be so bad. took the phone off the charger at 930 est. and down to 87% but i think that is because i have been browsing social media and a couple of calls and multiple texts.

Mine feels pretty good. No hard data, but it's looking good.

I have a lot of tweaks installed, such as DashboardX and IntelliscreenX that require some addons to make it function better, but my battery is great. I have been using this one tweak for a day now and it is AMAZING! It is called BatteryDoctorPro and it is the best battery management app out in Cydia hands down. Search "kbatterydoctor" and it should be free in big boos repo. it adds a load of functionality and also adds a notification center widget that has more features than the one included in IntelliscreenX and SBsettings.

I went from 5.0.1 JB to 5.1.1 JB, and I have noticed an improvement. One of the biggest battery suckers I was using was live weather, so after disabling that I can say all is well.JB Iphone 4S 32GB*Mac Mini 2011 Mountain Lion OSX*Apple TV2

Jb or stock I take it off the charger in the morning around 6am and by 3pm it needs a charger, I have only been with iPhone for a little over a month and I have purchased three wall adapters and two car chargers to make sure I always have a phone. I cam from blackberry so I am not used to this but am dealing with it as I like the"time wasting" features on apple. Love this phone.

Coming from stock 5.1.1, it's a little worse. I have a LOT of tweaks installed and for the heap loads of added features I have i think it worth it. I have a battery case just in case of I run out during the middle of my day, but it haven't come to that yet. These are just some of my tweaks that I have installed and a picture of my lock screen.
