    Lightbulb Official: 3G, 2.2 Battery Life Thread

    Here goes...got my iPhone 3G last Tuesday. Restored to 2.1. Jailbroke it. Used Gevey to unlock and I was in business.

    Hated the lag while posting on forums such as this. Hated the battery life. (Almost depleted at a rate 2x as fast as my old 1st gen)

    Did the update to 2.2 safely using the new Pwnage tool. After 2 full charge/usage cycles, take a nice look at that battery life. This was just taken a few mins ago.



    As you can see, I've done a nice share of talking. Not too much EDGE usage but I did do A LOT of wifi surfing (more than 2 hours consecutively) yesterday. Most while simultaneously chatting away on the phone

    All I have to say is my battery life doubled. There was no way I would have pulled this off last week.

    Those of you on the fence wondering if battery life is an issue with a jailbroken 2.2 iPhone...need not worry. It is safe to update

    STATS:

    Wifi on 85% of the time
    Location off
    Fetch off
    Brightness about 40% (Auto off)
    Bluetooth off for this full charge cycle

    If you have battery life info and pics you'd like to share, please do so. I'd like to see what other people are getting whether you're jailbroken or not

    Thanks in advance

    Hey.
    It's good to see some figures on the battery life. I think I will update to 2.2 after all.

    Quick question: what do you guys think is the optimum brightness for battery? Obviously I'm not going to keeo it on minimum as that is a waste of a good display but do you think 40%-50% is moer economical than with Auto-brightness on?

    40-50% is plenty for me. I see just fine.

    Just took it off the charger. I reset the timings again for a more accurate guage of the battery life using 2.2.



    I'll report back sometime tomorrow or the day after depending on how my usage goes this cycle

    Mine I think has tripled MINIMUM.

    Before, about 48 hours I charge once, not even exaggerating! (I have on standby most of the time, and use it only for iPod, calling, very few emails)

    Now it has been 3 days and I still don't need a charge!

    ps, I unlocked with i-smartphone sim, which I know constantly searches for signal between cellular towers, but does not seem to affect battery life?

    I totally agree. 2.2 fixed whatever was draining the battery in 2.1 and 2.0. It is so much nicer not to wake up to a dead iphone at my gf's house
