    I concur that I am not getting the same battery life as with rodimus. I have yet to do the really in depth testing, but rodimus gave me about 2% drain per hour. I'm getting more than that with harmonia.

    It is an interesting correlation that harmonia charges better than rodimus does, so I don't know if that is a clue or not. By charges better, I mean that I can charge faster with it than I ever could with Rodimus.

    I'd have bluetooth and tune in radio going in the car on the car charger, and would barely break even on battery life after 30 mins (didn't charge, but didn't go lower). With harmonia, I gain 2% or more after 30 mins doing the same thing.

    LOL i know i wanna remove the virgin logo too... how is this picasticks kernal vs xionia 005 any faster more stable? god im still running rodimus and that kernel seeing how this is my first android and feel like i got lucky flashing it and doing the custom recovery thunderc as i pretty much had no clue what i was doing and somehow pulled it out is it worth the change i pretty much got the process down you can just flash another kernal over it right?

On rodimus it was set at 768/200. On this its 768/485. Or whatever the nearest values are.

    Edit: oh and one other small thing. Battery goes down when using wifi and charging, on rodimus it didn't. But like I said, might not be rom but ill look more into it. Also I seem to get lag in games that I didn't before which is weird. Ill try reflashin
    That is really interesting. aosp suffered from a wifi bug that caused massive battery drain while it was enabled. Rodimus is supposed to suffer from a charging bug that causes the charging rate to be really slow. I wonder if in the evolution of this rom, they have accidental stumbled across both of these at the same time. Even with a wonky battery stats file, you should never lose charge while charging.

    If you'd like, take an estimate of your battery life using this method: http://forum.androidcentral.com/opti...rag-about.html

    If we get a few other people to do the same, we can tell if it is your particular setup or a problem with the rom. You can stop the test at 50-70% battery left, and it will be accurate to within +-10% of your real battery life.

    On the subject of battery savings, I just tested this build prop value:

    pm.sleep_mode=1

    And it deceased my overnight battery drain in half. I've only tested it once, and so it might be a blip in the data. However, I recommend others try it out.

    I love this ROM so hard, Aphrodite was great, but this seems to be even more stable. I scored an 8.9 on Linpack before any of my tweaking, and that is about .6 higher then I had on Aphrodite 2.1. Very nice boot animation too. I recommend removing Swype however, because the user of the ROM can easily sign up for the beta and get an up-to-date version of it. Meanwhile, people like me who hate Swype can be happy with ThickButtons or whatever.

    Thanks for cooking up this amazing rom! Keep up the good work!

    Reflashed. Same issues.
    What you said about wifi drain might actually make me switch back roms if its true. I use wifi more than 3g. The battery drain is a definite though, idling and losing % from 100%.

    Happy hop-hop day everyone!

    Thanks very much for the optional notification bars! This should help a lot of people in their theming, and it's a great optional supplement to this fantastic ROM. Thanks for providing them! (Why did Takenover put these out *after* I finished mine yesterday?! DEAR GODS WHY?! ).

    Battery life has been about, for me, on par with experiences jemel has been having somewhat.
    Rodimus was the 'battery benchmark' for my device as well, as it provided some of the best battery life results on all the ROMS I've tried.

    That said, I'd say I'm draining a bit more with the same everyday activities as I did with Aphrodite 1.3.3. It's certainly not to say I'm feeling a massive difference of drain, and I haven't done hard proof testing in mmarz style, so I'm speaking strictly of feel after a day of usage.

    I wish I could provide some concrete numbers here, but with the Easter holiday, my device is getting a bit of a workout today.

    Obviously set ups differ,and widget/process usage vary for each of us (I generally have WiFi on 95% of the time, Gps on, Very light and sporatic on-demand 3g data usage, 2-3 widgets refreshing often on my 'desktop' while at a constant 768 Performance profile in SetCPU). So mileage varying and whatnot.

    Charging on Harmonia is, and I have to echo this here, has been an absolutely fantastic thing so far. Charges occur noticably faster with this ROM over any I've used previously, via either usb or outlet.

    Unlike vee, I have not experienced a loss of charge plugged in (either through USB or outlet), while having running functions like WiFi or TuneIn Radio running. Not to say a bug with Wi-Fi couldn't exist, I've just not had any personal experience with any.

    Day 2 for me commences with no hard locks, few reasons to reboot, and general performance being in line with the Aphrodite series from before.

    What else are you guys seeing?

    Harmonia 1.2

    Had my phone connected most of the time so didn't really notice battery drain. Now I have noticed that there is indeed a highly noticeable difference.

    Don't remember exactly but on aphrodite 1.32(?) I was on pace for something like 65+ hours total battery life while on wifi, now I am on pace for about 12.

    Also noticed something like ami304 in my battery usage stats, not using much but never noticed it before. Really hope the battery thing isn't a complicated fix because this rom seems much faster than aphrodite 1.x.x, besides the drain I have zero issues with this rom.

    My usage is almost identical to yours in every way. I charged this morning for a bit (left if off charger last night and I was down to 40% or something, charged it up to about 80, and now, just a few hours later with only light usage and I'm down to 42%.

    Something is definitely afoot.

    Thanks for following up, jmel. Yeah, something is certainly curious about this.

    I'm at 3h 52m 46s unplugged as of this post (so, roughly just under 4 hours now), and I'm only down to 93%

    Same usage as we've discussed, and a bit more text usage to family for the holiday. A discrepancy of this size does seem to be awfully intriguing. Anyone else compare/contrast their early impressions so far?

    I lost 20% over 12 hours. Received a few text and notifications during that time. I can deal with that. That's 1-2% per hour. This is with the bumblebee kernel. (480/768 interactive)
    I also have wifi keep alive running, with Sipdroid. So sounds like to me maybe it's kernel related.

    The only problem I'm having besides the battery life like some of you is that the stock email app wont let me log into yahoo. Any way to fix it besides dowloading yahoo mail from the market?

    I noticed that I am burning through my battery pretty fast. Wifi usage sucks it down, 3g seems slower drain. I haven't been posting my findings because I was using JuiceDefender before and I have dumped it after the last update. Going to setup mmarz's droidwall scripts later to see if that helps. My usage has changed too.

    On the whole this rom is solid. I miss the gingerbread elements of RodimusROMs black and blue theme but I can live. I am not going to the cm7 Roms we have here untilled they are solid like this.

    First you have the LG animation on bootup, this is the power on animation. No way to change this.
    Next is a kernel animation, that's the one with Harmonia + Picasticks. That is where the Virgin animation used to sit.
    After that is the green Harmonia logo. This replaced the ugly gray-ish Android logo.
    After that is where you get the normal boot animation that people replace with various animations. This was removed from the Aphrodite family as a whole.

    Why two Harmonia logos? I didn't want to leave "Android".

    Thanks, I'll double check those.




    I'll look into the wifi burning up the battery.

    The charging bug was related to Xionia 005.
    We aren't using that, which is why charging is faster.

    The wifi drain however, is likely caused by the same reason. I suspect that RevolutionRed used the Optimus S wifi drivers. For this I went back to the wifi system from Virgin (almost everything is stock Virgin) and that is likely the cause. I'll do a hybrid and see if that fixes it. I may have to post it up and let you guys test though, I have no clue about my battery life as my hone is always being torn apart and rebuilt.


    Thinking back, if you look at Marzz's battery tests, he showed that stock Virgin was the worst for battery life. Maybe this is why.

    Harmonia 1.0.1 is released.
    This should be pretty simple as there is so few things that can be causing it. It's nice having prior work to base changes from, thanks for helping diagnose it guys.

    Harmonia 1.0 users can just flash this right over the top without worry.
    Warning, it will return the statusbar to stock, and any custom config files.


    Note:
    Those with custom scripts and such can just replace tun.ko and wireless.ko as these are the only things I replaced. The rest of the wireless system is identical between this and Aphrodite.

    In process of rewipe to have a go with 1.0.1.

    I know we can safely just flash it over 1.0, but I'm one of those 'start fresh and backstep if I need to troubleshoot' type of person.

    I'm still curious why I wasn't getting the drain as badly as others with 1.0. It was higher, without a doubt, but nowhere near the pull a few of you guys had (light usage, functions enabled as above, currently at 6h 52m 37s at 87%).

    Ah well, I suppose it matters little now. Off to 1.0.1!

    Have a look at Marzz's battery test results thread. Stock Virgin did pretty badly. Some of that probably had to do with a crappy wireless driver. Obviously going 100% stock Virgin isn't such a great idea.

    As to why you had it better, signal quality, and 3g vs wireless may also have had something to with it.


    Another thing to consider is the new toy effect.
    They had something new to play with, and spent the day playing with it, wearing it down faster than normal.

    Oh, I remember stock battery life... I.. I try to forget such things.

    1.0.1 is installed and fired up. First thing I attempted and tried to enable Wi-Fi, and it just displays 'Error' and remains unchecked when selected.

    Just a head's up for others to check if they get the same result.

    Edit: Attempted a reboot, and had the same issue after as well. 3G enable/disable works just fine.
