    I haven't really noticed a battery drain w/ limera1n, but let us know the result! To be honest, battery life on my phone has always sort of sucked anyway.. so I'm not sure if it's worse now, or what. I went from 4.0.1 to 4.1 and it seems like 4.1 actually has better battery life. It could be a placebo effect type deal.

    Anywho, let us know!
    Restored then tried Greenpois0n. Still the same battery issues. Running without Jailbreak again. As much as I like what JB can bring to the table, it's way too much of a hit on the battery to make it worthwhile, IMHO.

    Just JB's with limera1n, since I use a Mac. After nine hours, it only dropped 10%. Will have to wait a couple more days to see, but I might actually see better battery. My phone is definitely more responsive, it seems.

    Man I just took mine off the charger an hour ago maybe and I'm at 80% something is causing this

    Remember that when you JB, you do use your phone more. So this battery drop might be subconscious...

    I ran some very unscientific tests, and my battery seems to last as long if not longer with the greenpois0n jailbreak...

    Hmmm.. I was leaning towards using Limera1n but now I'm moving towards greenpois0n..

    *Update

    Just used greenpois0n and didn't have any problems..

    --Also if there is battery strain it just might be the perfect excuse I've been looking for to buy a Mophie

    I ended up restoring and switching to Greenpois0n and turning off a lot of useless things so I'm doing much better now!

    My phone seems to be getting hotter on the right hand side. And the battery has been draining at a very quick pace. I will keep a close eye on it. Since I rejailbroke I have been using the phone non stop to redownload all of the tweaks but I don't like the warmth that i'm getting from it. Anyone else notice this?

    Solved that battery problem for my phone: disable Cydia battery % and get rid of removeBG. The last one is not compatible with 4.1 but was installed through AptBackup. I could watch the percentage go down! But now its back to before. Use limera1n on my phone, greenpos0n on my wife's, no difference. Both are ip4

    Try using auto3G. It disables 3G when phone is in sleep mode and reactivates it when you wake it up. Gives me tons of extra battery life.

    Stupid question: Does this help when on Wifi or does it have no effect?

    Just install Auto3G from cydia, follow the instructions and that should help out a lot.

    Another better option is "SBSchedule". This app allows you to set up different profile for different times of day. They can be manually set or set to come on at a certain time of day or night. You can set Phone, Wifi, 3G, Data, screen brightness, ringer volume, and any other app that has a SBToggle compatibility. For example I have set up several profiles. I'm retired so they apply to my situation.

    Home Mode - WiFi - on, 3g, data, E - off: Brightness about 50%, ringer volume about 50%, ....
    Out and About - 3g, data, E, Firewall - on: WiFi - off: Brightness about 70%, ringer volume 100%
    Night Mode - WiFi, 3g, Data, E - off; brightness about 25%, ringer volume about 40%, Starts at 12am
    Day Mode - starts at 7am, same as home mode.

    Works great! Really cuts battery consumption down to a reasonably low level.

    Hmmm. My battery doesn't seem to be doing that great. I was new to jailbreaking and dloaded both at the same time.... Limera1n finished first..... So I used that.

    Is there anyway I can go back and use green poinson?

    My iPhone 4 seems to suffer some battery problems. I'll see jailbreaking 4.2 if it due to limerain
