That never happened to me, until 2 days ago, i decided to custom restore to 4.0. After 10h standby battery used to drop 2~3%.
btw, I'm running iOS4 GM RC on a 32GB 3GS with 5.11.07 baseband, jailbroken with pwnage tool, upgraded from 3.1.2 jailbroken with blackra1n.
i don't have battery issues on my phone or my wife's 32gb 3gs until I jailbreak. when they are virgin 3.1.2 i only lose 3-5 battery percent over night even with push notifications and mail enabled. And I can facebook and echofon and digg all morning at my desk for several hours and only lose 10-15% power. once I jailbreak however, I lose at least 15-20% power overnight if not plugged into a charger, and the same facebook/echofon/digg use that I do in the mornings brings my phone's battery to it's knees, usually consuming at least 40-60% of my battery.

Well I have a problem... I've made 10+ custom restores with PwnageTool, and it always Jailbreaks it fine, but Cydia crashes before it can be opened... or when I tap it the default.png starts to come then disappears or crashes. I've tried several different cydia packages, including the one on here multiple times. Somebody should upload their custom restore that has been tested to work. But until/unless somebody does that, can somebody help me with my problem please??
I dont understand either how to properly update cydia.
The instructions assume knowledge that not everyone has of how to use 7zip and command line.
Can someone please explain it in more simple step by step terms!

Ok, I ran some tests and my battery problem is in wifi! Im using my phone regularly, and when I stop using it I turn off wifi. So, Im in my second day using my phone and still have 74% remaining. So the problem is definitly on wifi no getting into sleep mode.
i could not follow the update bit so i expanded the file in win7 with winrar then moved to mac disk and simply copied each file to its coresponding place in pwnage tool and it worked.As i side note i restored from 3.1.2 jailbroken with blackra1n and it worked even though it says it wont.Dont work with spirit though
I have up loaded the pwnage tool for 4.0 3Gs
I upgraded my factory unlocked 3Gs to 4.0gm
Restored to 3.1.2 redsn0wed
then used tool to go 4.0gm jailbreak
