Pretty much what's in my sig still. . . . What ROM are you running?

If you haven't already, try the following:

- Buy Titanium Backup
- Freeze anything Kies-related (Kies Wifi etc), and freeze all the hubs
- Set wifi to sleep on screen off
- Disable fast dormancy


Is there a good list of apps to freeze, I've already frozen a few but I'm uncertain whether I can freeze more apps without breaking anything else?

Pretty much anything you don't use, within reason - I've frozen/removed all the Bluetooth stuff, and wifi sharing too. . . .have a hunt on XDA for the Google docs spreadsheet with a list of things safe to remove.

Take a look under Settings->Applications->Running Services for anything there that you don't use.

And there's also this method. 

Here's the Google Doc nofam mentioned.

It's a network option which lets phones kill the connection quicker and save power. Telecom doesn't support it and I'm waiting to hear back from Vodafone.

nofam: Anyone tried/currently using Hardcore's K1-T8 kernel?? I'm plannning on flashing it tonight; it doesn't have CWM yet, but I can flash Ninphetamine back via Odin if it's not doing the job.

Needless to say Hardcore's pedigree with kernel dev'ing is impeccable.


13h, 10m on battery with quite a bit of txting last night, and still have 78%.? Android OS isn't even showing in the battery stats. . . . .? Surprised


That hardout so you're using this - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1182498

And which rom?
Not sure what I'm doing wrong but i'm hardly getting 14hours battery with occasional bluetooth music, wifi and music.?

Cognition v1.15

Sweet just did these -
Freezed 2 kies related
Set wifi to sleep on screen off
Disabled fast dormancy

Will report back in next few mins/hours. I'm on 91% and 1h 12m atm.?


I'm on 4 hrs 1 min and 73 % left atm.

All I've done is few texts and checked email.. And handful of services.running in background like email, settings etc.

Yes we run a NSN network that supports fast dormancy

Sorry John, I didn't realise you were able to answer that. It seems to take quite some time to get responses from the normal sources.

Now that we know Vodafone supports it and Telecom doesn't, does anyone know if 2° supports it?

Phew! I did it! I just finished reading all 89 pages of this thread. Oh, and I purchased this phone on Monday, just waiting for it to arrive.

As soon as it's here I'll probably start asking stupid questions, so bear with me :-) I'm not a complete Android noob, so will probably be able to work my way through most things.

One thing I am interested in doing is buying Ti Backup and freezing some of the battery hogging apps.

Nearly time to retire the HTC Desire to the missus :-)

Great work, and congrats on the purchase. :)

There's a lot of good info here, it might be a good idea to copy/paste it somewhere for later reference.

Awesome to hear, the wait is the hardest part!



Given Vodafone supports Fast dormacy does that mean that disabling it will actually be more detrimental? When searching through google it seems turning it off on networks that support fast dormancy affected their data speeds.
