I need help with suggestions on which tweaks could be causing the battery drain. I have the background refresh app off and brightness down too. I'm hoping someone here have the similar tweaks as mine and can confirm. Here are the tweaks and other dependencies I have on:

AndroidLock XT
APT 0.7 HTTPS Method
BigBoss Icon Set
biteSMS
Cydia Installer
Cydia Substrate
Cydia Translations
evasi0n 7.x Untether
FolderEnhance (iOS 7)
GUI-GPG-SEC
iCleaner Pro
Infinidock
LocallAPStore
MultiIconMover+
MyWi 7
MyWi 7.0 (iOS 7 Library)
MyWi OnDemand
Purge
Springtomize 3 - iOS 7
StatusBarFix2
Substrate Safe Mode
SwipeSelection
TinyBar

I really don't have that much tweaks installed. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Why guess. Get Appswitch from the AppStore. See what which tweak is using too much CPU. Uninstall one tweak at a time. Or use mobile terminal and top. You can also install batterylife from cydia to see what kind of drain you have at idle.

Didn't know that. I'll try that. Many thanks

I did the mobile terminal and backboardd is the only 1 running with at least 2% when idle and more than 20% when touching the screen such as scrolling the pages on home screen. Any idea what is it?

How many hours of usage do you get out of a charge. Let's see some screen shots. Might help out.

The usage is blank. I haven't charged it yet. Waiting for it to die out before charging. I restore it and jailbreak it again yesterday to start over when springtomize came out so I can get rid of other tweaks clean.

Okay. When you can, charge it and post a screen shot of the usage when it's around 60%.

That's really great battery life.

I don't know what else to say.

You're getting an hour more of usage than I am at that same percentage.

I think you're good.

Thank you everyone! I'm wondering if MyWi was the culprit cuz I took em off before charging. I'll test it again later. Thanks again
