    i have an ipod touch 4g brand new and the battery seems very bad. i just know want to you, for you guys, on a full charge, how long does the battery last if u play a game and have maximum brightness on but everything else like ssh, wifi, and etc off? i want to know cause at max charge and brightness i can game like 1hr or 1hr 15 mins max. this is ridiculous considered i just got the ipod

    I have screen dimmer and I have killed launch deamons.
    I have a 2gmc.
    I dont multitask.
    I do have native wallpaer.
    I get 5 hours gaming at 85% brightness.

    Here are a few Tips:
    1. Don't Multitask, If you have it disabale it.
    2. Dont use battery percentage through Sbsettings. Big drain. If you want battery percentage use plists method.
    3.Dont use winterboard for wallpapers, if you want wallpaer use native wallpaper.
    4. Use only simple themes with winterboard.The more elaborate the theme the more battery, being used.
    5. avoid cydia extensions and twaeks like inconoclasm, SBrotatorer, LSrotater, infiniboard..etc
    6. Edit plists to kill unnecessary launch daemons.
    7. Install screen dimmer.
    8. Last and most important. Power cycle your ipod once a week. Run the battery below 10% then charge it untill full while running a program like battery doctor pro.

    I'm curious, 5 hours is a lot for gaming, what type of games?

    Big games or small games? Eg: Angry Birds is 'small' and N.O.V.A is 'big'.

    You only need to restore if you have installed too much junk.
    But restoring is a good way too get a fresh start, I would definitely consider it.
