    So I updated to 4.1 from 3.1.2 here the other day. It was fine for a couple of days, but the now battery life is horrible! [​IMG] It only need to be on standby for a few hours before its empty.
    I've seen that a lot of others have had that problem too. I tried turning of Notifications, but that didn't work. [​IMG]
    Any other solutions? Do I need to update again? I rather not, since its a jailbroken. Since its jailbroken I can try to download some of those Battery log apps from Cydia if that helps. [​IMG]

    Its a iPod Touch 2g/3g MC model. [​IMG]

    Have had the same problem. Was caused by multitasking, which also slowed down the ipod. I solved it by flashing it again with multitasking off..

    Double press the home button to see if there are any tasks running on the background.

    3.1.3 should fix that issue [​IMG]

    Also, Upgrade from 4.2.1 to a LOWER iOS?!?! That's downgrading my friend [​IMG]

    Anyway, upgrade to 3.1.3

    Yay! I caused iFish to fail! [​IMG]

    Anyways, I tried to see if I had something running in the background by pressing the Home Button twice, but nothing happends. I don't think multitasking works on iPod. [​IMG]

    By default, the iPod touch 2G does not support multitasking. You'll need to change the capabilities inside of /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N72AP.plist to allow it.

    I also have this exact model, and the jailbreak tool i used just had a checkbox to turn multitasking on. Since Delta517's iPod is also jailbroken it could be possible..

    I don't think you should be putting any type of cooking batter on your ipod [​IMG]

    You can use ztoggle to turn on and off multitasking and background pictures on unsupported devices (you'll notice the speed difference, believe me). You can get it through Cydia.

    This is what I did to make my ipod battery life back to normal on my Ipod touch 3g and my brother's ipod touch 2g MB model on 4.1 firmware.

    Go to Settings>General>Reset

    1. Reset Network Settings
    2. After it reboots, reset location warnings
    3. Reset All Settings

    Then I turned all push notications off and then hard resetted my ipod touch. After it rebooted, I turned wifi back on and it doesn't drain anymore.

    I think it would be better if you disable the push notications launch daemon so that push notications won't work before resetting. (I have always did this first) [​IMG]

    Try turning location services off.
