    I have a 3gs and I have jailbroke it 3 times each time installing less things to TRY to avoid the fast battery drain. I do not use the ipod at all but for some reason it still runs in processes. I am posting a picture of my brightness and periodically will post pictures of my usage. What do you guys think?
    This last time all I have is

    I don't see anything wrong with you using 18% in an hour. If you're using it to do *something* during that time, and it's obviously something more than ipod useage as you mentioned, that seems normal to me.

    You still have a lot of jailbreak apps installed.
    Having too many will slow you down and drain your battery. Running different themes and five icon in a row, things of that nature is like running an app in the background.

    Just looking at your usage and standby alone, I say you have a problem. But then again, it is jailbroken with a lot of background apps.

    FYI, I get about 5~7 hours of usage with 16~18 hours of usage per charge.
    Screen brightness at 100%, Fetch every 15 minutes, 3G, location service and bluetooth only when I need, use Edge whenever I'm at home/office with WiFi.

    My phone is jailbroken, and the only jailbreak apps I have is SBSettings and Lockdown which I rarely use. Jailbreak itself has no issue with the battery life, its what apps you have installed that effects it.

    You've used it for 2hours. Your battery looks fine to me (as it did in your previous post).

    If you're going to run a bunch of JB stuff, get yourself a cheap external battery.
