    Hi, I am here just to make sure.

    I did notice my battery drains after updating my iPhone to IOS 4.1 so I am thinking about restoring back to 4.0.1.

    But, if I don't have my 4.0.1 SHSH back-up, I will have no way to downgrade from 4.1 to 4.0.1 right?

    Correct you need shsh blobs to downgrade.

    There are several ways to improve your battery life on 4.1
    1. Make sure your jail broken with the most recent version of your jailbreak program, i prefer green poison.
    2. Limit multitasking or considering disabling it via plist editing if you dont use it.
    3. Limit backgrounds and themes, They drain the battery too.
    4. Consider deleteing uncessary launch deamons that may be slowing down your device.

    =/ That's sad. Hahas..

    Well, I limited everything down. Push is only on for Facebook and Whatsapp.
    Location service off.
    Background multitasking is off.
    I still uses first version of greenpois0n though.

    I wonder if 4.2 will fix that.. but then.. I don't really think so >.>

    you may want to consider using the most recent version of greenposison. I notice almost no battery drain. My battery runs great. It lasts as long as it would if i wasn't jailbroken. I get like 3 hours of games/videos or 40 hours on music.

    It seems like my battery actually lasts longer when I'm jailbroken...

    Yes, I know that makes no sense at all, but it does.

    That makes sense if you take time to disable multitasking disable unnecessary launch daemons.

    Many people drain the battery by themeing.
    But if your smart about it, Jailbreaking can actually add battery life.
    I totally agree.

    I don't notice much difference between not jailbroken and jailbroken.. I don't use themes, I disabled some launch daemons... Removed languages... I enabled wallpapers(deleted all but 2 wallpaper overlays) I'm using sbsettings to make sure certain things are fully closed. Don't use multitasking.. I use infinidock/infinifolders and sbrotator...

    I don't seem to have problems...

    Hm... My battery status now:
    Usage: 2 hours and 19 minutes
    Standby: 10 hours and 9 minutes.
    Battery left: 62%

    I wonder if this is normal but for that amount of usage, the battery was left at around 80%.
    Might consider normal update as I am using a factory unlocked phone then JB with latest greenpo1s0n
