    Hello. My phone's battery is draining a lot quicker then it did before jailbreaking (albiet, i have downloaded a ton of cydia tweaks)

    I'm going to list the tweaks I have here - can you tell me which ones use the most power?


    Cydelete
    Intelliscreenx (beta)
    Multiiconmover
    Nowlistening
    Cameralocker
    Zoomisback!
    Weesearch
    Music Center
    Bolt
    Springflash
    Fast Copy
    iPicMyContacts
    Winterboard
    Folder Enhancer
    AsktoCall
    CallBar
    BiteSMS (beta)
    Killbackground
    Appscenter
    Activator
    Calendar for Notification Center
    Cleanup
    Gridlock
    Quicknote for notification center
    semitether
    startdial

    Sorry they're not in alphabetical order. If you could tell me which ones use the most memory/power, I'll take them off and hopefully my phone's battery will last longer.

    Thanks!

    From what i know none of these tweaks drain battery, what can be shorting your battery life is IOS 5 it has been reported to shorten battery life there are several fixes for it.

    It's not iOS 5 because I jailbroke my phone 2 weeks after i updated to iOS 5 and the battery problem started after jailbreaking.

    1st thread bumping isn't allowed here. if anything add something meaning to your bump. 2nd the best way to tweek if you suspect something is uninstall one app at a time and see if it makes a difference. IE some have reported issues with winterboard others have not. So try uninstalling it. Also try recalibrating your battery. ;)
