Battery Drain after Rooting?

Hi All,
I am totally new to Android so bear with me...lol, I just replaced my old TP2 with the Epic 4g Touch, and decided a couple nights ago to Root it in order to get the free Wifi Hotspot fix...So far that is all I have done is Root and install Wifi Tether, I have not used the Wifi tether at all except for getting it installed and configuring it to work! When I first got the phone it was all I could do to put it down...I was DLing apps and playing games and pretty much the screen was lit all day...In other words I used the hell out of it. and I would not usually have to put it on charge until 7 or 8 pm...which coming from the TP2 is HEAVEN!

Since Rooting the phone and installing Wifi Tether I have noticed that I have used the device less and it seems like the battery is draining faster and I have to put it on charge by 5 pm or so! I have not been using any different apps then I was just a few days ago, and I did notice it almost immediatly after I rooted the phone! Could anything in the rooting process or Wifi Tether be using power resources?

Thanks,
Mike

Not 100% sure of this, but rooting might have wiped the battery stats. Give it a couple of days and it should return to normal.

rooting some how does that cause it also happens to my phone. when i go back to stock battery life is great but install CWM and wipe battery stats and battery does get better in about 2 days

Re: Battery Drain after Rooting?

A better idea is to completely charge the battery until it is 100% and the led light turns green. Then while the phone is still plugged in go to your recovery menu and wipe the battery stats. This is not a recommended process, its a REQUIRED process every time you switch roms. That should fix the battery issues that you are having.

Re: Battery Drain after Rooting?

That's one of the reasons why I still haven't rooted my phone. I need a long battery life. Besides, I want to make the most out of my phone warranty. Hopefully other people here can help you with this.
