I jailbroke yesterday along with everyone else, how has your battery life been? I'm not quite sure just yet. Seems like its a little worse, but could be be sued I've been messing with it more than normal. I'll have to see what happens in the me t few days. Anyone else notice any issues with battery life? I know that the jailbreak itself won't cause the battery to drain, I think it's a placebo effect for me.

Re: Battery life
i know there will be people who will disagree with this but IMHO there is always be some effect on battery performance due to the tweaks we add to our devices after jailbreaking. the diehard jailbreakers look at it as a small price to pay to configure their iDevice the way they want it
this is definitely ONE of the reasons why i have a difficult time staying jailbroken because i can tell a difference not too long after setting up my jailbroken device, especially now. i have been pure for months before evasi0n and know how my battery behaves stock. i am having a difficult time trying to find a reason to sacrifice battery performance just for a few tweaks

The battery life depends on a lot of things and it shouldn't be made this basic tweaks take cpu power. These tweaks are no different from apps in the official store they just aren't sanctioned by Apple. Sure they are not all created equal and some cause memory leaks but hence I said it's more than just a basic argument. Themes are putting images over the original OS and will definitely take some extra power but the features I use are all things that increase the usefulness of the phone. The things I've always lived by is check Cydia every now and then and do all the updates to stay up to date. Any JB app I need to only run once in awhile I kill it once I'm done ie. Cydia, Winterboard, iFile Once I've applied the tweak etc why leave it running? I have never had abnormal battery drain and it's also not like it doesn't happen on stock iOS either. The tweaks enhance the device and that is the most important thing. Just use the charging cable ;0) if it makes it unstable that is a different thing then it's decreasing the usefulness instead.

What do you think of Auxo? I was thinking of doing it but heard it affects memory.
