    I rooted my phone following Qbking77's videos. I installed AOKP milestone 6 with CW and have FF18.I put my CPU at 1,000 max and min at 200 and I've ran the governor on all options. The only thing I have not changed is Voltage Control. With that being said I'm trying to help my battery life at least last me through out the day. Is there any advice someone could give me to possibly help me there? I'm really new to this so I'm not sure about using different modems or kernels; don't know if I should be using a different ROM perhaps...I'm just really confused with what I should be doing now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hey brother. Go here

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1781939

    and download the RC12 with cwm kernel via the link in the thread. Boot into recovery and wipe cache and dalvik, the dalvik cache is in the advanced menu. Install the kernel you downloaded. Reboot phone.

    Download the free no frills CPU app from the play store. Open it and switch to the smartassv2 governor and change I/O scheduler to SIO. Select "apply settings at boot." Keep your clock speed at stock values. Enjoy your badarse battery life.

    Make sure you fully discharge your battery until the phone dies and then plug it in and leave it on the charger for a good 6 hours before unplugging it and booting it up.

    Good luck.

    One more thing. For me in aokp the notification light gives me battery drain so I turned it off. You might give that a try. The kernel I recommended might take care of that though. I'm just so used to not having a notification light I haven't turned it back on yet.

    Ok im having a slow day so i figure i can do it now. Question, when i rooted my phone and installed clockwork (agat recovery) all went well. But when i did power button and volume up it opened up team win recovery instead of agat....not sure what happened but am i still safe to do this?

    Yes that's the recovery I'm using as well. It's fine.

    Hopefully you're on and can respond pretty quick. I'm about to install and it has boxes for me to check or leave blanks...."zip file signature verification?" and "force MD5 check on all zips?" what do I do to those? Check them or leave them blank? Other than that it just says Swipe to confirm flash. Thanks again for the help!

    Just swipe to confirm. By checking check md5 it will fail as there isn't an md5 file for it to find. Leave both unchecked

    Zip file signature would make it look for a signed zip. I am pretty sure it isn't. So that would make it fail as well. I have never checked either of those boxes

    No problem man. Also a cool thing with twrp is zip stacking. You can flash multiple zips in one shot by pushing the button add more zips. For rams like aokp I would first use calkulins format all. Then stack a rom and gapps after that then swipe to flash.

    I sort of understand what you're saying there and sort of don't lol. I'm a big time noob and it took huge balls for me to finally decide to do this. I had already rooted to aokp milestone 6. So the roms is already loaded. Sorry like I said....noob. lol

    We were all "noobs" once. You're doing it right though. You learn by reading, asking questions, and with practice and experience. The practice and experience portion can be the scariest part, but it gets better each time you flash something.

    Thanks. I'm trying to do it right without annoying too many people in the process. lol Practice and experience were definitely scary today. But after having this rom on my phone for a week now I don't see myself ever going back to a stock phone.

    Appreciate it.

    Now next question. I've done all that was recommended. Battery died a little before 6 and I've been charging since (so roughly 3 hours). I've been charging it with the phone off but I've checked on it twice and each time I check on it the phone has turned itself on by itself. Is there a setting hidden somewhere that's making it turn back on? The phone hasn't even charged up to 100% yet....

    Is it turning on when picking it up or is it already on? It might be the rom was a bad download how did you download? 3g wifi or computer? Also did you download from stock browser if by phone? When I download from phone I use only wifi and use opera mobile browser. I have not had a bad download ever using that way of downloading.

    That is super weird. I've been running this rom for a while and haven't had anything like that before. Maybe just try a good old fashioned battery pull?

    When I picked it up it was already on. I would just press the power for a split second and the screen would turn on already loaded up...and I downloaded from my laptop through with fi.

    I tried that too and it did nothing. As a matter of fact I knew the screen was on because when its off the little led light doesn't turn on and when I'd look at it it would be on.

    Ohhh I almost forgot....

    So I charged it last night (just kept shutting off the phone). Went to bed a little after midnight. Phone said it was charged all the way but when I powered it on it was only at 98%. I left it like that anyway since it showed full charge. I got up at 8:30 and it had already drained to about 74% and as I use it now its down to 66%. If I look at battery use it shows the system as the main use and it has been awake for almost an hour and 1/2....lost now...really lost...

    Redownload over wifi with opera mobile. Then wipe using calkulins format all.zip then reflash rom. Probably a bad download. Sorry man.

    Yeah I'm able to get 18 hours with 4 hours of screen time on this rom. There is definitely something weird going on with your device.
