    Is anyone experiencing a occasionally stuck battery indicator under 2.1? I have a 3G that I jailbroke shortly after upgrading, and noticed that it was reporting a full charge even after being unplugged and used all day. When I rebooted the indicator jumped to less than 30%. This happened a couple more times since.

    I'm going to try a full drain to see if that helps, if not I guess I'll do a restore and hold off on jailbreaking for a while.

    Same here

    I experienced the same thing yesterday. For a while I though 'awesome I'm finally getting great battery life' and then I restarted my phone and it was almost empty. I'm not jailbroken either, so it's the firmware itself that seems to have this bug.

    Don't you think Apple is "cheating" on users?

    i'm in the same boat as you. I have a non-jailbroken phone and it did the exact same thing. after hard booting the phone it has been back to normal. I heard you should hard boot the phone after you upgrade it.

    I went ahead and did a fresh restore, no backups used. Battery indicator seems to work okay now though a couple other 2.0.x issues came back to visit briefly (notably the SMS alert not playing until I rebooted). I'm gonna keep away from jailbreaking for the time being.
