    Phone Heat

    I'm running TSM Res 2.1 with the newest KGB kernel. I generally stream music all day with frequent texting but once in awhile, for reasons I am not sure, my phone gets really hot (40-44 degrees) like its in heavy use (gaming/movie) and the battery just drains down... even when the screen is off not being used in my pocket (still streaming music though). Other times the phone is a normal temp with regular battery usage all day long with no problems. I also switch in and out an epic touch 4g battery (1800mAh) with the stock 1500 battery and use an external wall charger, not sure if that makes a difference. How can I troubleshoot to figure out what is going on with my phone? There must be something running in the background or maybe it's something to do with the kernel or the batteries? I haven't touched any of the kernel settings yet besides trickle charge. Sometimes a reboot makes it go away temporarily but if it's a day when its burning up it will usually come back shortly. Any ideas? Thanks

    If you go into settings/about phone/battery use. You can see what's eating your battery. I ran that rom for about 4 hours on a phone with no service and the dialer at up about 60 percent of my battery and caused the phone to get really hot. My battery lasted all of about 4 or 5 hours on that rom with no use. Alit of people have complaints about the phone getting really hot on that rom unexpectedly.

    If you grab watch dog from the market it will let you know if you have any rogue apps in the background using CPU.

    So I did what you said and nothing seems to be going crazy. Battery history says 75%+ is from the screen, but the screen is off in my pocket almost all day so I'm not sure what's up with that. My CPU is constantly running at 1000 mhz though while I'm streaming, I am assuming that is where my battery is going? It spends hours at 1000 mhz, a good chunk of time in deep sleep, and only a matter of minutes in 100-800 mhz. Is this normal? Thanks for the input.

    I think I might be making the jump to ICS soon, I just don't know about the data connection on that ROM. I LIVE off of my data...

    That is excessively high screen time and 1000mhz CPU usuage. That will definitely cause heat and battery drain very fast. ICS build 6....not 6.1 but six has no data issues at all. No need to toggle data or anything. Its solid as a rock.

    Well that confirms it then, I am definitely making the switch! I've been using the ICS theme for TSM Res 2.1 and I absolutely love the look of it! Just need to get the file for build 6 since the link on the rootzwiki is down. Thanks Ronnie!
