    Hi, i upgraded my 3G to 3.1.2 and battery life was ok. I then jailbroke my phone and installed sbsettings and noticed my battery was draining fast. Is sbsettings responsible for fast battery drainage, i would like to know since i cannot live without the numeric battery option?

    I haven't noticed, but if it does, I can live with it, as it's my number 1 reason for jailbreaking.

    The app in question is ASBattery, cydia source is:
