    Has anyone compared there battery usage on there 3gs before and after jailbreak?

    I'm thinking of restoring my phone just to compare as battery life is really poor at the moment im having to charge the phone every night.

    Hows this info compare to yours?

    That looks about right to me. Mine is almost exactly the same but I run wintrboard music controls and backgrounder. I never tested it before the jailbreak to see how different it was.

    Edit: misread your battery percentage. Those are my numbers at 20% usually.

    This is not jailbroken! It was even worse when it was jailbroken. My battery sucks! I'm hoping 3.1 will fix it! If not I'll be heading back to the apple store.

    Don't forget guys you want to keep your battery charged as often as posible. Lithium ion batteries last longest when charged often. This is not nicad technology where you wanted to drain the battery down to a minimum.

    I've seen alot of these posts, and actually figured it out. The perfect way to Jailbreak and not lose battery life is easy, but there is a side effect. Basically this is how you do it right. Plug your non-jb phone in. Let it sync. Restore it to factory. Next, This is the most important part set it up as a new phone. NO NOT RESTORE FROM BACKUP. This is your side effect, you lose your saved games, pictures, music **** like that, but its worth it. Let your iphone sync after restoring it, so you have your contacts back. Then jailbreak. If by chance after you jb itunes asks you to setup as a new phone do it again, do not restore from backup. My battery life is perfect, with all settings on. With heavy usage i get a whole day outta my phone.

    I'm not getting too many problems, I guess if you have 10 hours standby and 5 hours usage, well, maybe you're using your phone too much in a short amount of time, which drains it even more.

    usage meter not showing up

    Hey guys, new to the forum,
    I just recently jailbroke my phone. Before my usage meter would show up, however now (after the jailbreak) my usage meter is blank and the standby is blank. It just shows --. My call time and stuff are still there but not the usage meter. Any ideas?

    You need to charge the phone up to full before the battery statistics start counting again.
