    I have new iPhone 4 since January 25th.
    Everything was great with the battery at the beginning, but when I did jailbrake, my battery drains to fast.

    For example:
    Today, 8:30AM it was at 100%...and later on 9:15AM battery was on 93%...and iPhone was all the time on the desk...I haven't use it at all.
    After that....I made a call (20min)...and just only this call today and nothing else, and battery is now (13:00PM) at 64%.

    3G is off, wireless is off, notifications are only on on facebook, textme, viber and what's app. Location services is only on on camera, maps and runkeeper.

    In the usage time is says:
    USAGE: 5 Hours, 58 Minutes
    STANDBY: 5 Hours, 58 Minutes
    This is a little bit weird because I haven't used iPhone longer than 20 minutes today????


    I don't have a lot other apps, just few jailbreak apps, and thats it. I have call, sms and data counter apps, and I don't know does this apps mean something for battery drain?

    I don't know what to do with this problem, should I ask for new device or what??

    Please help me if you know where is the problem....

    we can all better diagnose the problem if you individually list the installed tweaks. :)

    the thing is the jailbreak itself is not the culprit but being jailbroken you know can install tweaks the do drain the battery faster, might be a weather widget or something else, like the previous post ask list your installed tweaks and someone might know of one to be a battery pig

    I never had the rickroll background when I was having the worm.

    For me the issue was I always had to reinstall Open SSH to ssh to the phone. After the first connect, I was never able to reconnect again without reinstalling.

    This may not be the issue with chipa85, but by removing the worm, my battery was able to least 50% more.

    read on another forum that if your having the issue where you have to reinstall OpenSSH everytime your SSH into your phone just delete the following 2 files and it should be fixed
    of course you have to still change the root password as well

    1. “rm /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.ikey.bbot.plist” and hit return
    2. “rm /bin/poc-bbot” and hit return

    EDIT - did this and i no longer have to re-install OpenSSH everytime I want to SSH into my phone using winscp, also i think it improved my battery a bit, not sure if thats possible but usually by this time i would be at about 70% and today im at 82%
