    My Iphone's battery lasts for about 4 hours now and this is quite sudden. Before, it would last an entire day with about 30% left and I know iphone batteries are renowned for being crap but not this bad!
    I've made sure all processes are turned off when idle, the wifi and 3G are always off when not used etc.
    One thing I have noticed is that when it's on it does get quite hot (hotter than usual) and I think there may be an invisible process sucking up battery.
    So is this software based or am I going to need to replace the battery?
    Thanks in advance

    Hmm, not completely sure if it's software or hardware based, but try unjailbreaking for awhile to see if the problem persists. If it does, bring to to Apple.

    Bring it to Apple Un-Jailbroken. They won't fix it for free if it is.

    They won't fix it at all if it's jailbroken.

    test it when its jailbroken then restore and test it when its unjailbroken and compare results. if it still does that, take it to apple unjailbroken.

    I've got this issue on two iPhone's... It's the battery, faulty, damaged, something might have come lose, something might have been misplaced or such.

    Restore to a stock firmware, take it to Apple or call your company.

    It's due for a new battery or a new phone... I got a new phone both times.
