    Hey guys,
    My jailbroken 3gs has really started to make me mad. As of yesterday, the battery was so bad I would take it off the charger at 8 A.M. and by 12 P.M. I would be below 20%

    Can anyone help me out and tell me whether my iPhone is done, or is there some steps I could take and get it back to normal?

    Thanks.

    None that I know of. It is usually on stand by because I am at school.

    Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Fetch New Data. Turn push off, and reboot.

    Backup and restore the phone.

    Use it without a jailbreak for a day or so and look how the battery performs. If its still crap then its probably a defective battery and could be covered by warranty. If it improves then its something you had installed on the phone with the jailbreak.
