    Default [battery] Charge lasting 12 hours on standby after battery replacement.

    As per the title really.

    I'd noticed my iPhone's standby time had suddenly get very bad indeed, 12-14 hours max and the phone would switch off.. So I figured I'd need a new battery.

    Not adverse to the soldering iron, I bought a kit myself, opened the phone, soldered in the new battery.

    Charged with my PC..

    Standby still last 12-14 hours.

    Anyone else had this, or could maybe offer advice?

    HI

    What kind of Apps are you running or is this a clean install as well as a new battery?

    Hey. Thanks for the quick reply.

    I've erased the baseband, restored to the phone's original 1.0.2, unlocked, relocked, upgraded to 1.1.4, unlocked, restored, pwned, unpwned, ziphoned, idemocracy'd...

    You name it, i've done it.

    No matter what the software/firmware, it's still the same.

    I did read in another thread on here, try erasing the baseband and NOT restoring immeadiately - see how long the battery lasts in that circumstance.

    That's about the only thing I haven't tried.

    Any one else had similar experiences?

    Ok I just wanted to rule out any apps drain your battery down.

    Not being rude but your solder joints are all ok, nothings touching anywhere it shouldn't on the circuit board.

    It's not rude mate.

    The soldering's fine. There's nothing I can see touching anything that shouldn't be. But then, the comms board, logic board, etc. are all shielded and I haven't had a nosey under there.

    Hi
    I suppose there is a small possibility that the battery if faulty, but without trying a second replacement unit I canít think how you could rule that one out.

    I've got another battery here. They were pretty cheap, so I figured I'd get two in case I stuffed up.

    Looking at the multimeter the one I installed seemed fine, however.

    I'll try the erasing baseband thing later tonight..

    About that, actually. What happens if the battery runs out while I'm basebandless? Will the phone still be able to go into DFU mode and charge from flat?

    Why not play safe and erase the baseband and restoring straight away

    If the basebands is your problem that should fix it

    Ahh, see, I already did that.

    I read somewhere (can't find the link now, natch!) that a person had a quickly draining battery - but when the baseband was erased and kept blank (with the "Repair Centre" message) the battery drained normally.

    In any case, I'll erase the bb later and leave it for 5 hours. If it's not drained as much as normal, theres clearly some weird software/firmware ROM/comm board problem

    Ok

    I would think you'd get the Repair Needed Message come up but Im sure you can still DFU restore.

    If you find that info post it up so I can have a read

    And lets us no how it goes

    Cheers
