    What are the settings you use and what tweaks do you have installed?

    That's basically about it really other than some emulators and a handful of other non Apple .api apps

    To be truthful Ive never downloaded movie box until about a week ago, but the first time I downloaded it it had a red dot underneath it (meaning it's a beta version) ... I only realized this because I don't have labels on my springboard, then one day the dot disappeared... I looked into it with cydia and a terminal emulator and see where nothing should have changed or been updated but clearly something happened... I ignored it until the next day when playing pandora killed my phone in about 3 hours ( never had that happen) usually it plays all day... Then when I plugged it in it instantly turned on and displayed 31% battery!!! And movie box once again had the red dot, since I've deleted movie box I have absolutely no problems, so now I only download it when I plan to use it and then delete when finished... I can't say for sure this will fix your particular problem but it's been what worked for me... I even tried blacklisting eclipse 2 from movie box and it did nothing to help

    I'll try that thanks. I've been told that the tweaks that I have installed make the battery last longer have you dealt with any of the tweaks I've installed?

    Only no motion,

    But I have used no slow animations for the boost when opening and closing apps and just used the reduce motion in iOS itself for this device since jailbreaking it

    About two weeks ago I was jailbroken but didn't have substrate installed my battery was great. I unplugged it at 6 am and at 2pm its at 89% what about an hour usage. It would then last me all day until like 8 or 9 at night not sure why

    That is kinda strange,

    After I install any apps from any source trusted or not I always then go into my terminal and just use

    Dpkg --get-selections

    And it gives me the entire list of everything installed on my phone, and luckily only once have I had a problem with packages installing things that weren't displayed in the download list, and yes it was from a shady repo so it came as no surprise....

    Been lucky over the years tho I have always jailbroken without many hiccups... But I'm always cautious so that probly helps

    Yeah I just wanna be able to have a few tweaks like maybe 5 or 6 and not have horrible battery drain I remember when I was on iOS 7 with my 5s I had a good 15 tweaks and my battery would last me the whole day

    i don't get easily attached to my digital files, not that I know if you do or not but I think always doing a fresh restore and starting over every time helps

    Most people that have problems usually have used an iPhone 3 or 4 and then got a new phone restored the new one from the old backup and then just continue to build that backup over time from phone to phone and I think they get all crammed up with junk files and stuff... Maybe I'm wrong but I don't have problems so I continue to do it the way I explained

    If I was you tho I would (assuming 8.1.2 is still being signed) download the ispw and do a fresh restore and then re jailbreak... Hopefully this may fix your problem.

    You side you didn't have the problem before installing substrate tho so this may not help anything I can't say for sure... Battery problems drive me crazy tho so I would try why you still can just to have one potential problem eliminated why the iOS is still being signed

    ----------

    And to be specific I use

    Android lock xt
    Bars
    Cc settings
    Clean up
    Color badges
    Eclipse 2
    Ifile
    iOS 6 complete for iOS 7/8
    No slow animations
    Mario mushroom respring
    M terminal
    Pandora downloader
    Power down
    Snes 9x + emulator
    Springtomize3
    Status modifier
    Tone enabler
    Unlimitones
    winter board

    Also a few more but these are the ones I use regularly

    I'm not sure if it was the phone itself or the jailbreak, but my 5S's battery life was horrible.. I would've had to charge it like 3-4 times a day to make it through a full day of usage. Now that I have the 6 I don't have to charge until a day and a half. Such a huge improvement.

    Assuming the usage, setting, tweaks are all the same for your 5S and 6, it's completely normal for iPhone 6 to last longer. Why? Eh... because (1)iPhone 6 has a bigger battery? (2) the battery in iPhone 6 is newer?

    I hope you know that battery life depreciate.

    No, usually on lte... All of that usage is from today when I was at work. I just leave wifi on and it connects when I pull back in the driveway

    I wouldn't stress it too much. His usage pattern is probably different from yours. If you noticed, 23% of his battery drain came from pandora streaming (which probably means his screen was off for most of that time pandora was running). Not all usage is the same. Screen time would be a more effective measure in my opinion, but iOS lumps all usage (screen off or on) into one category.

    You need to turn on your battery percentage so we can get an idea of your battery usage. Thanks.
