    Battery life, CM7 vs CM7GB

    I've been on the same CM7 build since July. Is the battery life any better on the GB kernel CM7 by RevNumbers?

    I just installed MIUI and will try it for a few days, but if the battery is better on CM7GB I'd swap in a heartbeat.

    I never used Froyo CM7, just CM7-GB. At first the battery life was pretty good, but recently, I'd be at 50% by noon (only 4 hours off charger) and that's with an extended battery and not what I'd call heavy usage. I don't know what changed...

    The newest builds give me the best battery. Froyo kernel was just terrible for battery

    My first full day of testing on MIUI showed nice battery life.

    On CM4DX (Froyo), my battery was dying at the end of a 12 hour work shift. On MIUI, I still had 60% battery life. I hope this continues.

    I wonder if I had an app misbehaving while on CM. I've re-installed MOST of the same apps though.

    The early official Froyo builds also had something that prevented them from correctly going to deep sleep, IIRC. Revnumbers found that and actually put the fix in his Froyo builds

    Cool. Wish I had known that before. On day 2, I still had 60% after a 13 hour shift. This is freakin AWESOME.

    Try the Black Ice theme on MIUI. It comes loaded on Galnet and you have to download it on the 2012.2.1 version.

    I guess I shouldn't have posted this in the CM forum. I thought I was going to upgrade my CM, but instead made a detour.
