Yes I know that apparently installing clean into iOS7 improves battery, but what about installing clean to iOS 6 and then immediately after doing a clean install of iOS 7???
And the point of that would be what (over just a clean install of iOS 7 directly)?

This is what Ive read, does it work? I guess I will try it out!

**THEN not than
How do you know what Ive does (and what he does it for)?

Most of the folks not doing a clean install are because they torrented the software and it won't work if they restore.

I suppose doing a clean iOS 6, activate and then update to 7 would work for them.

After the beta was released I installed the beta and it upgraded the OS. So after a couple days I reinstalled it and set it up as a new phone/clean install.

Battery life was MUCH better for a day or two then it was back to crap. I uninstalled t and went back to iOS 6 until beta is released

I'm thinking of doing that also will give it another try but again it's a beta and not meant to use on regular basis, this is the truth of it all.
