    Exclamation Jailbroken iPhone 5 Battery Issues!

    Hi there,

    I have a jailbroken iPhone 5 with awful battery life. When locked the iphone can become very hot and decrease in battery by 10% every half hour. Sometimes it lasts all day though. I am not sure which app could be causing this. It's intermittent aswell which is annoying. I have listed my installed jailbroken apps below.

    Account Changer
    Action Menu
    Activator
    App Switcher Brightness
    Auxo
    Badge Customizer
    Badge Clearer
    Barrel
    biteSMS
    Bolt
    CleverPin
    Color Keyboard (Switched Off though)
    Crash Reporter
    f.lux
    iBatteryInfo
    IntelliscreenX 6
    Landscape Lock Rotation
    NC Settings
    PkgBackup
    SB Settings (not active in Notification centre or drop-down. Only activated when needed)
    Swipe Selection
    Tether Me
    Wifi Passwords
    Zeppelin
    %hook's law

    Please help me! Thank You

    You're going to get moved to the jailbreak forum.

    What do you change when it becomes hot?

    Have you checked to see what's running when you experience this in sbsettings processes button?

    It's strange it's getting not regardless of the jailbreak or not :/

    It may be that ur Tether Me app is staying on and that may be causing the battery drain. Not sure if that's related to it getting very hot tho. Does that occur often, the overheating? If so, I'd restore as new and take it into apple for an exchange.

    When it becomes hot i turn it off, otherwise battery will become too low too quickly. The sbsettings processes button only seems to shows me actual apps. It doesnt show other posibilities like intelliscreen etc...

    It gets hot like when you use it for ages in a game. however its happening when im not using it. Makes me think something is running in background...

    The tether me app isnt actually tethering. it just enables me to tether without a plan. If i exchange i wont be able to re-jailbreak because of software updates... is that right?

    If its overheating, it's highly likely they will. However, make sure to restore it back to factory if you're taking that option. They won't be as likely to help if they see the jailbreak.
