    I'm having an issue with my 3GS on 5.1.1 with the untethered jailbreak. In Settings -> General -> Usage, the usage and standby times are equal. I don't know if this is affecting battery life at all (After 1 hour and 40 minutes, I was down 10% with only wi-fi usage). I tried a restore and it fixed the problem for one day. Any ideas on what is going on? I have tried charge cycles, hard resets, and resetting all settings with no luck.

    Restore as New iPhone--NOT a backup. something is clearly running in the background and i am afraid you might be loading it back onto your device

    Since I'd lose my game saves, is there a way to get them back?

    You won't get your game data back but I agree with Blink on settings this up as new after a restore

    That looks like such a hassle, but I guess it's my only option.

    Is there a list of games that support iCloud syncing? II know both Cut the Rope games do. Those I wouldn't have to back up manually.

    If you're jailbroken, use Data Deposit to back up your game data. Works great.

    That's much quicker. I restored as a new device and downloaded my saves with that. The problem is fixed for now. I'll see if the fix persists.

    It appears my issue is solved and battery life is much better. This is one of my lighter usage days and 2.5 hours was spent in airplane mode as I watched The Avengers, but still good. I know I can get through a day, but definitely not two (That's fine with me). Thanks, guys!

    Yeah. I have to Jailbreak to use my phone on T-Mobile (I don't have a factory unlocked phone unfortunately).
