Okay So I run gb 602 and I'm underclocked and undervolted to 900 Max speed at around 40vsl. Roughly. Anyways my phone battery is draining at an unholy rate recently. I've not used it all day, and I even rebooted it after about an hour. It's been on battery for 3 hours and is already at 70%. I haven't even used it! Any ideas? Because the built in battery usage chart is useless apparently.

do this have you some instructions in a sec


1. While in Android, charge up to 100% and leave the phone plugged in.
2. Delete /data/system/batterystats.bin
3. Remove back cover
4. Press Power and choose to reboot normally.
5. When the screen goes black and the lights go out, pull out the battery before you get the M logo. It will probably still work after the M logo shows up but that's how I do it.

After the surprise of seeing the boot animation without a battery, you will then see the lock screen along with a "No SIM card error" and no signal.
...... Put the battery back in - the SIM card error will disappear, you will get a signal, it will show 60% full and the icon will show the battery charging.

Let it fill it up to 100% + 15 minutes or so. When it is truly finished charging 100% full is approximately 4200mV

your phone will generate a new bat stat bin

I'll do this when I get the chance, but I thought calibrating a Droid X battery was a moot point, and an app I have to monitor my battery says fully charged it's at 4.171v

no its not moot it works especially this method and a full charge would be 4200mv+

edit: I got it to turn on once but it shut itself down...

If you're running basic rooted 602 then you could just install zombiestomped 1.7 on top of it. If you want the blur features then zombiestomped still has them plus you can keep the 13p radio.

If you're worried about the theme, you can use romtoolbox by jrummy to change status bar color and icons.

I was running rooted 602 for about a month but I wasn't satisfied with battery life. So I went back to ZS and every time I do, im blown away by the performance. Plus it has all the important blur features
