    Hi folks,

    I am having this strange problem with iphone 3g (jailbroken/unlocked but on ATT still )

    I was having the usual problems of battery getting drained sooner upon
    jailbreaking. So, I uninstalled(like after a month or so)
    few packages in cydia like inetutils and ssh and some more.
    It was fine on the day.
    In the night, i didn't charge(it had 50% charge anyway) and next morning
    I see phone is dead, so i check the charge it says 10%.
    I then plugged it to wall charger and had it charged for 75 mins.
    Now I check its still 10% charged !
    Didn't know what to do.
    Later I powered the device off, and then restarted.
    Now voila battery is showing 80%
    So what could be the issue ? Does anyone know ?
    I use a cheap battery displayer, it was working fine though.

    I also notice phone is dead next morning and when I plug to recharge it starts indicating 80% straight !

    Here is the list I have on my device :

    apple 2009 theme
    bigboss's source
    cydia installer
    fuel guage2 (battery indicator)
    ********** shuffle
    iphone firmware
    nike dialer
    saurik's source
    ste's source
    5-row qwerty keyboard.

    Thanks a lot.

    Plug your phone in while you sleep. Unless there's some logic to letting it sit and use it's charge overnight......
