    there are several things you can do with settings, brightness, location services etc.. but before you start minimizing what your device was intended to do i would Restore/Set up as new

    do not restore from a backup. syncing will be fine

    Mine also drains faster than normal, it may be because of my jailbreak and all the tweaks I have installed.

    IDK i am jailbroken, moderate usage during the day and i unplug my device at 0630 every day, by 1800 when i return home i am usually down to 75%to 80% so its hard to say, there are only a few tweaks i have installed tho

    you know, i do have to say i do not miss having issues like this. after being stock for a little bit and now that 5.1.1 has proven to me that battery performance is better, i will most definitely have to weigh the pros & cons when the 5.1.1 Untethered is released

    Blink - I have loads of tweaks, NO THEMES and I don't use it loads during the day, but a fair bit and my battery is fine. Your battery drain must have been really bad for you to think that you might not go back to being jailboken.

    I don't think I could live without being jailboken and what made me finally go out to get an the new iPad was the fact that the hackers where working on a 5.1 A5 jailbreak.

    My Mrs has a 4S (not jailboken) and her battery drains quick, but she uses it all day. We must all remember that phones have changed a lot over the years. iPhones are basically hand held computers and if you use them throughout the day quite a bit, the battery is going to go down.

    i've always been able to rectify any battery issues, while jailbroken, very well. but it seems there is always going to be something to keep you from running equally the same as stock. give & take situation i know

    my dilemma is i no longer jailbreak for the reasons i used too. in fact i'm down to only a few tweaks and that's it. like i said, if i see a noticeable change in battery performance i'm done. i've been jailbreaking since the 3G came out and i'm tired of micro-managing

    is your Mrs using 5.1.1? if so did she restore/set up as new? that is my reccomendation because 5.1.1 is excellent on battery performance

    you CAN jailbreak the iPhone 4 using 5.1.1 but tethered only. if your an experienced jailbreaker great, if not then just wait for a little bit

    CDMA or GSM does not make a difference. all iPhone 4's have the A4 chip so there will always be a jailbreak available (tethered or untethered)

    BOOM!

    How to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 with RedSn0w

    like i mentioned already, if you're not familiar with tethered Jailbreaking life will be a lot easier in a few days when the Untethered is available

    Display eats up most of the battery. And is you internet active all the time?
