    Hello,

    So I jailbroke my device and have installed the following items. I'm experiencing several battery loss and am willing to remove some thing to make it better.

    BiteSMS
    Lockinfo (I've heard this is a drain)
    Winterboard (I've ONLY changed my SMS sounds)
    MyWi 4.3.4 (Installed by hardly used thus far)
    SBSettings
    iFile (how could this be a drain)
    FakeCarrier (How could this be a drain)
    AppSync for OS 4.x
    OpenSSH

    Any input would hlep.

    Perhaps I should try and recalibrate the battery now that im done customizing my phone??

    It's gone from 96-84 in approximately an hour of intermittent use.

    Much appreciated.

    there is another thread bouncing around than suggests SBSetting is the culprit as it uses a dependency on activator causing battery drain as the programs run in the back ground.

    I have LockInfo and biteSMS Installed. Because i have LockInfo installed it also installs Activator.

    No issues thus far - have push/fetch turned off though and notifications are off for the entire device. I don't use them. Screen brightness 60%.

    Seems to be almost the same as pre-JB.

    edit: oops and iBlacklist with 7 numbers being blocked 24/7.

    Your battery sounds fine. Besides, it is going to take much more use to really tell you. Winterboard and Lockinfo can drain the battery. The more junk you add, the more lag, and the more drain. Anyway, post what you’re actually using the phone for and how long and what is all turned on (Bluetooth for example), but wait a few days to really have the info needed to tell you how your battery is.

    This could be totally mental, but I turned off the OpenSSH toggle and my battery has been lasting longer than when the toggle was on. Do a search for "Battery tested after JB". You should find some good info there.

    Bad idea though turning off SSH. You have no way to SSH into your phone if you need to after something goes wrong. SSHing is one of the reasons to jailbreak.

    SSH turns itself on when you reboot the phone so it's fine to turn it off when not in use, and in fact recommended.

    currently installed

    -SSH
    -biteSMS
    -lockinfo
    -SBSettings

    i've been using my phone as normal and i have about 74 (1 hour 48 min usage, standby 8 hours 11 min). i think it might be the settings on lockinfo. I just have my mail and weather app running. but both of them are updated at my discretion. actually i wanted the weather app to update every hour, but its only updates when i tell it too.

    FWIW I have had an increase in battery life since jailbreaking. When fully charged at night, my batter still shows 100% the following morning when I wake up.

    I have:

    SBSettings
    Winterboard
    Activator
    MIM
    mywi
    my3g
    Rock
    Poof
    Reminder
    iFile
    AptBackup

    That just means your battery display isn't working properly. There's no way after installing winterboard and some other **** that I have no idea what it is, that you would have better battery.

    Installing openSSH turns on the ability to SSH into your phone. If the settings have it turned off, you won’t be able to get into your phone. Rebooting has nothing to do with it, that is, it doesn’t turn off SSH when you have openSSH installed, just because you reboot. That doesn’t even make sense. The setting in SBSettings turns off openSSH, nothing else.

    No, that does make sense. SBSettings will kill sshd (The SSH Daemon, or the server). sshd is automatically started up as part of the iPhone boot sequence, by launchd (The Launch Daemon).

    It's like any other computer. The reason Finder starts up every time you start up OS X is because launchd is starting it up. Similar for explorer.exe on Windows-based systems. If you had a server, init starts all your services (Like Apache/httpd, MySQL/mysqld, etc.) up on load as well.

    Yes, you're very close.
    Yes installing openssh gives you the ability to SSH into your filesystem.
    If you turn off SSH thru sbsetting for example like you said noone will be able to log in.
    But each time you restart or respring the iphone SSH automaticly turns on again on its own even if you turned it off before you restarted.
