    Default Battery life still not as good on Kit Kat....

    I have read all the suggestions, and tried everything to extend battery life(Battery saving mode in GPS, Switching network from global to LTE/CDMA) and still after a month of running KK, battery life is no where as good as JB. I bought wakelock detector today and need some advise on how to use it. I'm stock rooted, and only real changes I have made are running Xposed, with Gravity Box(for full immersive mode) and G2 Tweakbox and G2 Xposed(to hide carrier information on lockscreen, and hide various other things in the UI I don't like). Thanks for the advise in advanced.

    Did you perform an FDR (IE: Factory Data Reset - Reset the phone to stock) after the update? If not, do that, wait 5 days, and call us back if you're still not having a good battery day.

    Well. Sorry. Not sure what's going on. I haven't had any problems on 4.4.2 and I've got 2 of these phones. Both last longer than the M8 that I had for a month.

    See I wanted to download this gravity box but it said you had to be running something close to vanilla. I've only installed xposed & xbadad camera mod.
    So what you're saying is most anything, unless specified, that's in xposed is useable on my G2?
