    3GS, JB on 4.0, old boot rom

    My phone battery life was pretty good until the last few days... Now it goes from 80% to 20% in an hour without doing much with it. I've installed a few games, programs, etc. Don't have the exact list though... still trying to get it.

    Is there any very well known apps (jailbroken or non) that are known to kill the battery life? Also, is their an app or something that can show me what might be drawing the power?

    Restore and rejailbreak if you want a fix. I cannot think of anything specific that would result in that extreme of a battery loss. Does the phone get hot? That's faster than a 3G call...

    Battery could be bad...

    I hope it isn't the battery. I'm not able to upgrade to iphone 4 until Feb... and would just probably wait for iphone 5 to come out.

    I'll upgrade to 4.2 when all of the jailbreaking stuff is done and working bug-free. Battery seems to be doing better today.
