WinterBoard drains your battery. While you do get nice eye candy from using WB, but personally not worth it to me, IMHO. To each their own though.Hi, before make the jailbreaking i´m interested in read some opinions about the difference in the battery usage between jailbreak and non-jailbreak iphone 4.
I thought mine would drain quicker after the JB but i'm pretty sure thats because after I Jailbroke the thing, I then used it nonstop like a man-man for a good hour. Then, when i stopped and put it in standby, it only dropped one percent overnight. And yes, winterboard drains the battery. If you really ARE having issues, then you probably want to restore and re-jailbreak and see if that helps.
Admittedly I've been away from the JB game a couple of years, but SSH used to always be the thing you turned off to save battery.......That's not true. OpenSSH is passive, it doesn't do anything until it gets a handshake connection. It ONLY uses battery when it's connected. But it's safe practice to turn it off I guess
Thanks, I already have that turned off. It seems the battery is draining fast but I can't deny that I've been checking Cydia every now and then as well as playing around with various settings.If you have OpenSSH running, that'll certainly drain battery.
The daemon is still listening, so it does drain a bit power compare to not running, but it is very little comprare to the original implementationYea when it first came out it did poll constantly and drain battery.
Yea respringing resets the usage counter. Not sure why, but it always hasI don't mean to thread jack but figure battery life and usage all go hand in hand.
Today I was curious what my battery life would be after Jailbreak, so far its been normal but anyways I noticed my usage was being tracked this morning (via general > Usage) but all of a sudden the information was cleared. Only thing I can think of is I downloaded the live nexus wallpaper and respring my .. icons don't know the term haha.. desktop =/
Anyways does doing a respring reset your usage? Oh come to think of it I also might have rebooted because I couldn't get the live wallpaper to work (I finally found it in winterboard it was named different then I expected)
