Also I might add before someone else does - no 3G signal because my active phone is my TB - however, this is definitely better than SSX 2.1, same conditions ...

This is very good. I deactivated my x the other day and left it on without touching it. I'm on miui and my phone was at 33% after 16 hours... Not good. Plus that's an extended battery!

hey Chevy- I absolutely am floored with how great my SSX 2.1, but I've also noticed that my battery tends to run a bit hotter. Also it takes forever to lower the temp once it's streamed data, or other process to jack up the temps.

My battery life is still really good, but just thought I'd mention to see if anyone else has noticed this.

chevy - i would not mind being a guinea pig and testing this out to see how it fairs with an activated phone. i work in a building that doesn't get very good reception, and live where there's full bars. nice split.

it seems the radio is what killed the batt for me on 2.0 if you are interested in having some activated testers, i'm in. (not trying to sneak 2.2 early, lol, but i love both ssx and ss)

Appreciate the offer - but if it's radio that is killing your battery, what I've done will not help - my tweak is only for when the phone is idle, ie. screen off ...

08-26-2011, 10:56 AM
understood. still a drastic improvement. sounds like 2.2 might give my D1's 5.4 a run for its money in battery life...

on another note, a buddy of mine applied some hack to SSX2.1 after flashing the new .13 radio and he is reporting significant improvements in battery life. def sounds radio related...ill try to track down where the hack came from if you're interested in investigating.

Chevy - found the thing he was talking about over at xda - here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=739530)

don't know if this is something you area already doing, the thread is dated pretty far back. even back then it was reported working for your ROM, as denoted on the thread. you seen this before? thoughts?

Okay I finally remembered why I came to this thread in the first place. I apologize if this was answered elsewhere did a search of this thread and no dice. Has anyone been using any of the morph's for CM7 on this ROM. I am new to theming (not a themer yet, but I'm researching), and morphing. Do the morphs here CM7 Morphs. (http://tinyurl.com/morphscm7) work with SSX2.1? Just wondering. Seem's like I used one, not from that page but from the Mixer theme, and it worked well on either SSX or Liquid. I can't remember. Anywho, I seem to have my SSX straightened out. Time for a nandroid.

Sorry Wrong thread, too many tabs open. maybe a mod and delete it, as I'm gonna post it in the correct thread. My apologies again.

First off, SSX is flat out awesome. A battery life improvement would be icing on the cake. Idle time is where I most starkly see the difference in my battery drain, having come from a rooted GB ROM.

Chevy, If you're collecting beta testers, I'd love to volunteer!

Ssd1 5.5 is for the Droid 1. Ssx is actually the same except its for the Droid x. Chevy has released fewer x versions which is why the lower version number.

Well, if you all can BELIEVE it - since my last post, 8/25, which was 8.5 days ago from right now - I had not plugged in the X - it was just sitting there, I was not using it .. it JUST DIED.

So, from last full charge, I unplugged (7:02am on 8/24) and it just died at 9:30am on 9/3.

IT LASTED 10 DAYS, 2.5 HRS

How's that for battery life?? Granted, it WAS idle. But that is where I was seeing the most battery drain. This will be built into the next version - basically what this means is if you only used SetCPU for the screen-off profile (where you get the most savings) it is no longer needed :).

Sorry for my absence - been working on another adventure which has monopolized my time - a Windows Skype extension dialer - I use Skype for work and dial conference #'s which require passcodes to be entered after the voice prompt. Skype does not support this, so I wrote an extension :)

Although I am dying to test the gingerbread kernel on CM7 nightly I am too in love with the SSX rom to switch and adding the kernel Idea to SSX would put it over the top. I will say though that pushing out 2.2 without it for now might be a good idea. Make 2.3 with the kernel because for now it looks like you have something awesome going for 2.2 and the kernel might mess with it or make it better who knows? All I know is I can't wait for 2.2! I would rather you take your time with the new CM7 with GB leak and make it perfect then to rush 2.2 and have issues! Just my thoughts on it not everyone has to agree! :wink:

I've been flashing Revnumber's various builds of CM7GB, and I have been very impressed with them. Just incase you haven't been following his thread on rootzwiki, he updated his ROM to 2.3.7, and it broke several features; namely the camera, and the battery life for a significant number of people (me included) dropped drastically. I know they may have discovered a fix for the camera, but mums the word on what caused the battery issues. I'm continuing to follow his work closely.

However, knowing that you are getting SSX built off of the GB 2nd init just made my month! I've been seriously missing SSX.

Question (I think the answer is yes) - if the battery compartment door is off the DX - it can greatly affect battery life right? Been trying to figure out why my testing has not shown great battery life and realized I had the door off for DAYS!

i've never heard of this. is there something in the HW that causes this? i can confirm that there is a tiny switch that latches when the battery door clicks into place. its just above the SD card. there's a wear mark on the batt door, so i imagine this is some type of sensing for the door.

Problem with turning it off is the amount of time it takes to come back on. One example is camping, where I normally have it off, but want to use it for camera. Instant-on from sleep, vs "hold on guys, let me take a picture... wait, it's booting up... hold on, almost there... loading now, just another minute... Hey guys, where'd you go?"

The wug patch fixes the radio, and that patch persists through sbfing and roming, so once you do the patch, you can tether FOREVER! (In computerese, "forever" means until the next update breaks it. lol. But you can switch back and forth between froyo and gb, and keep your tether.)

You never know - all I know is big difference for me if off. In addition - it DEFINITELY hurts battery life on the Tbolt - as the antenna is tied to the door. If you take the door off on the Tbolt, it can only get 1x signal, and spends a lot of power looking to make it better.

Are you now on the GB kernel?

having the antenna tied to the door, never thought of that. it WOULD explain it, but isn't your DX unactivated? that would negate that argument then i would suspect.

the question I want answered is whats the little metal deely(what i referred to earlier as a switch of some sort) that the battery door touches? i felt the need to change my verbage considering it may just be a tether for the antenna. i really can't imagine it would make a difference.

DX antenna not in door. I have extended batteries, so have to use different door. All plastic, too spacious to ever contact that little switch. But yet signal is still same as always. I have no explanation.

I do have a new gripe, though. When I drop the phone on it's head, it turns off. I'm guessing maybe loose battery contacts??? But it's aftermarket, so nothing I can do but try to not drop it. Anyone else experience this? Sorry, I know it has nothing to do with SSX, just kind of a wild tangent.

CM7 itself would have to be recoded to include those things...then what would be the point of CM7. I personally don't use any of those things and am glad its not included.

on the move..

Problem with turning it off is the amount of time it takes to come back on. One example is camping, where I normally have it off, but want to use it for camera. Instant-on from sleep, vs "hold on guys, let me take a picture... wait, it's booting up... hold on, almost there... loading now, just another minute... Hey guys, where'd you go?"

Not only that, but my Blackberry Storm had a similar feature that I really liked. I could turn it off (essentially sleep mode) and it would wake itself up when my alarm was set to ring. That meant I could put it to sleep when I went to bed and not worry about remembering to plug it in.

That would avoid days like today when my battery died overnight so no alarm. Fortunately I still woke up just about on time and still made it to work okay. But I do miss that sleep feature...

I use the app ring scheduler to do this. I have it set to go to airplane mode at a certain time each night then have it turn back on in the morning.

Not sure you'll need sleep function - it is hard to tell since my DX is not activated - but check my twitter for latest battery testing :big smile:

I am anxiously and patiently waiting, ssx is my favorite rom, but I needed better battery life so had to switch. I seriously check this forum 10 times a day hoping for a release of 2.2

I know you all are patiently waiting - I just am very rigorous in my testing, especially when I'm releasing something as 'visible' as battery levels - in addition 2.2 will be a 2.3.7 build, so that is taking a bit of time also - but will be worth it!

Your efforts are much appreciated! SSX was my first rom. I've tried a few, but kept coming back.

Is there any way there could be a list of features? I know with this version, I've found some things that don't work, but I really don't know if they are supposed to or not, if it's a bug, or something beyond the scope of your work. One example is not being able to play 720p videos. I never knew if that was a bug, or something ssx was never intended to handle.

In any case, I'm looking forward to your next release! :-)

GAHHHHHHHHHHH! I had an SBF fail and got tied up doing something - came back and battery was dead. I do not have a spare battery, nor an external charger - so I am HOSED as far as I can tell. Just ordered an external charger but that is going to take some time to get it here. So as of right now - I can't even test my latest build :shocked:

I don't remember exactly what thread it was in (I'll try to find a link), but a couple weeks ago, MIUI's battery gauge was broken, and the battery wouldn't charge. I know a number of people tried that method to get their dead battery to charge... Seemed like most of them had pretty good success.

Ugh. I lost about 35% a night on regular battery after calibration. How long have you been running 2.1?

That's just it. Never did a thing. No over/under-volting/clocking, no sleep mode, no anything at all so I could maintain a baseline to compare drain levels.

Anyway, 2.2 will be better, as the battery drain on GB 2nd-inits is noticeably less.

You can use launcherpro and you'll have that option in the launchers settings.
Menu> preferences > homescreen settings > transition effect then scroll to the bottom and select cube

Is there a setting or something to dim (or turn off) the hard key lights? I remember back on .596 I was told to use the AdjBrightness app, and that sort of worked. Then on SSX 2.0 and 2.1, the lights were much dimmer.

Now that I'm on 2.2, they're blindingly bright again. I've tried the latest AdjBrightness, and it turns them off until I switch to another app, and then they come back on. It's especially annoying when trying to read an ebook at night with the lights dim or out.

So anyway, is there a setting I can use to turn them off until I intentionally turn them back on?

And on the topic of battery life, I'm LOVING this new version. Today I've been on battery for almost four hours and just went down to 89 percent.

And I was able to go 8:30AM until 10:00pm only one charge, but that included about five hours on airplane mode since there was basically no signal in the theater I was working in. But the rest of the time had a good bit of 3G usage.

It'll be nice to go out for a full day of work and know I don't have to worry about taking my charger with me.

You rock, Chevy!

Update: five hours of light use later and I'm still at 74 percent. With 2.1, I'd be lucky to get 8 hours out of a full charge

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but my battery life sucks with ssx 2.2 I'm down to 75% in 3hrs 24min and I've just been browsing the net and sending txt msgs. This is the second time I've flashed the rom not sure what's going on but also my battery seems to drop in chunks from 85 to 79. Any advice?

Well to try and figure out what's going on... What's using your battery and how much is it using?

Well the the display is using up the largest amount of battery at 43 % so Ive lowered my brightness and lowered the time for the screen display to be on, but I'm still confused about why the batter drops in chunks. I went from a rooted .605 to SSX 2.2 could that be it?

Mine was like that for the first 2 days. Everything mellowed out since. Display is always a killer. Mines at 30% max. Games and OC also drain it. Check manage apps, downloads, and sort by usage. That will give you another idea where pull is coming from.

Why the battery appears to drop I'm chunks... I believe... Is how Chevy made the one percent work and be actually pretty accurate... It's just a side effect the battery drops how it does... I may be wrong...

Post script: don't worry about your display eating that much... Mines usually around 50-60 percent : D

The battery life on this has been amazing! 7.5 hours and at 83% (been on Wifi for most of the time). Was thinking about messing with the governator to increase overall performance. What is the diff between "users pace" and "performance"?
