    i'm solidly jailbroken on 4.2, but i was hoping to partake in personal hotspot, etc., but i'm not willing to compromise battery life. are there battery drain issues on 4.3.2? it seems apple never directly mentioned it in any changelogs.

    I'm now running 4.3.2 and jailbroken on my iPhone 4. So far, the recent update has better battery life than 4.3.1 and 4.3 for me.

    I'm back to 4.2 battery life with the 4.3.2 update. 4.3.1 was HORRIBLE and I was praying for a jailbreak to come for 4.3.2 and it really is much better.

    Up There
    There is NO battery drain whatsoever on 4.3.2

    Since the first iOS software update back in 2007, there have been people complaining about battery life.

    That being said, update and enjoy! :)

    When you updated to 4.3.2 did you restore as new phone or restore from backup?

    I love the convenience of restoring from backup since I have many email accounts (including my college email which was an extreme hassle to set up) and other settings. However, if that means there will be much better battery life then I would just have to suck it up.

    Yeah, that push connection that keeps sending and receiving data at 10-15 minute intervals whilst signed into the app store surely doesn't drain battery, even though it has been tested by tons of people :rolleyes:

    You Apple apologists are truly pathetic

    One thing that historically has caused bad battery was email settings (esp exchange/push).... for 4.3.2 i deleted all my email setup and redid them all (i run about 5 email accounts on my phone all using exchange) and its back to normal .. back to the 1% / hour on standby or so i'd expect..

    My other stuff: No push notifications, push email, wifi, location services, no bluetooth, 3g etc

    Some apps also are poor background citizens, Skype i'm looking right at you so if they're running battery gets mullered

    4.3 was the worst update in terms of battery life
    4.3.1 was a bit better
    And with 4.3.2,I think I'm getting the same battery life as I got with 4.2.1 :)

    Haha I was about to say the same thing. Sounds like a good deal to me.

    alas, it seems like 4.3.3 is right on the horizon, though :( but i guess if all the change is the patch of the location tracking, it wouldn't be really worth any upgrade anyways.

    I am a real test lol

    As of right I wish I didn't buy the mophie juice pack air for my ip4! I bought it for the 4.3.1 update that was destroying my battery. I turned off ping and the store account and was better but still sucked. I was so mad at the update that I tried to downgrade to 4.2.1 which I did but with an upgraded baseband with 4.2.1 didn't work very well.

    So I decided to update my phone with 4.3.2! I am glad I did. I have the same battery life as 4.2.1! I have, for the last couple of days, been listening to my music via Bluetooth headphones(LG hbs-700-which are excellent by the way) for almost 10 hrs with some pausing and playing in there and about 10 calls in between music via my jawbone era. Got home last night around 830 with about 45% left on the iPhone battery.

    If that's not a test I don't know what is! I am very satisfied with my iPhone battery life. Woohoo! :)

    Hope this helps anyone decide weather to update or not. P.S.- I am jail broken on 4.3.2 via redsn0w.

    another thing that people don't know, is that even though you aren't using it, Facetime is keeping an open push connection with apple servers. It was the only push connection I could not close according to Netstat. I went into phone settings and turned facetime off and it stopped the open connection.

    I'm on 4.3.2 and jailbroken with the latest redsnow c16. Is that a problem? I hop it was ok to use the latest redsnow for 4.3.2. I'm not on 4.3.3 obviously.
