    Hey guys, I bought a new ipod Touch, charged it for around 3-4 hours, until it is fully charged. I then jailbroke it, and installed apps for like an hour and 30 minutes. After I'm done, the battery is already 1/2. I turned it off, went to sleep, and when i woke up, i opened it and the battery is now around 1/3. I played for a few minutes, around 30minutes, and now it is in red warning me the battery is low, 20%. Is this normal? How long does a jailbroken touch battery last? Assuming you play games, wifi, listen to music. Thank you.

    Wifi drains your ipod battery like crazy because it is constantly sending/receiving packets even if you arent using it. If you dont need to use Wifi, turn it off in preferences and that should make your battery last days if you are only listening to music. Also, watching video takes more.

    I've used it for like 2 hours max using wifi, music, installing, and playing games, and now the battery is warning me that only 20% is left on the battery. Is this normal? I turned it off before going to sleep.

    Tab, as derdj said, Wifi drains your battery like crazy, therefore your battery is running out quickly. Playing games also wastes a lot of battery (depending on which one) [ex. Emulator].

    Thanks SkaterGOD/DOOD23!

    Another thing, how long does your battery last if you play games, listen to music, connected to wifi? is 3-4 hours normal? Thank you.

    Also remember to turn SSH off. I think it is constantly waiting for a client and wasting battery all the time. You'll need to download an app off installer that lets you turn it off/on.

    turn off ssh when just using it for normal use like watchin videos or music


    and TURN it back on when using CUTRE FTP PRO or WIN SCP
    and when ur using isntaller i think not sure but i think u need SSh on when using isntaller to install apps ........

    and lower u brightness to auto brightness so u use as much as u need

    turn clicking off and put on hold if ur not using it.


    WHAT IS EDGE????? can i turn it off and when do i need to turn it on????
