download 60659 PRL here http://cid-eabe29f3770d8d15.skydrive...x/.Public/PRLs
then follow instructions to get your MSL: http://www.ppcgeeks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=87414
then go to start, tools, Ninja PRL... enter your MSL and edit your PRL by browsing to the file. make sure you unzip the PRL file that you downloaded

this is the time to use the tools included in vin's roms.
  • go to start menu
  • then go to tools
  • then launch Ninja EPST
  • then hit view
  • it would load bunch of values.
  • hit menu and select prl.
  • new values should load and it will tell you which PRL your running.
from initial test, i found that PRL is the killer. the new sprint rom should give you the new radio and the newest PRL 60662. this PRL is definitely no good. btw, you can use old PRL with new radio, this doesn't really matter. if you want to know more:

i have proof of all this too. last night i charged up my phone til the phone showed 100% charge and the green charge light came up. I went and changed/downgraded my PRL to the previous 60659 and let me phone go on standby overnight. 7 hrs and less than 7% battery drain on standby mode.

also i have screenshots of test i did with acbPowerMeter. I found that battery was much more stable and stayed below certain values. also there was less spikes since the radio isn't always polling/searching for best towers. if you don't believe me you can run acbPowerMeter for 10 mins and see if you get values like me. if you don't, go and change ur PRL and redo the test on acbPowerMeter.

screenshots on different occasions.

BEFORE




AFTER




btw this test took me 45mins... testing before and after PRL change and also rebooting the phone to make sure new PRL stayed. values of these dropped from before and after by 20+mA (avg value). btw in the after pictures, you will see spikes at the end, this is because i was hitting touch panel and trying to launch my screen capture tool

Please hit thanks, if you see that this post is helpful.
