    Cydia Tweaks affecting battery life?

    Hey guys, ive recently installed the following tweaks;


    Color Keyboard (BigBoss)
    Folder Enhancer (BigBoss)
    NoNewsIsGoodNews (BigBoss)

    Ever since i installed these it seems that my battery is draining faster, it might just be me thinking this because today it didnt drain as fast, but im not sure, has anyone else experienced battery draining faster the more tweaks they have?

    Have you noticed any tweaks draining your battery faster?

    Thanks for any input (:

    Of the three you mentioned, I only have colorkeyboard and have not noticed a difference in battery life. I hope this helps eliminate the issue.

    most tweaks will not affect battery life. i have 2 out of the 3 and a lot more and my battery life was only lowered a little but that is over time wear and tear

    I have a lot of tweaks, but the battery never goes down faster than usual. The only problem is that the phone runs slower that my mother's 4s, which is older!

    A word of warning here: SHSH blobs for iOS 5.0.1, while save able for the iPhone 4S, are of no use as of this writing. Currently, there is no way to use SHSH blobs to go back to iOS 5.0.1 once you have upgraded your 4S to iOS 5.1.

    IOW, with a 4S, if you upgrade, you WILL lose your jail break with no guarantee or time frame as to when the community can jail break iOS 5.1 (or higher).

    Just so's you know...

    Mickey is right, once Apple stops signing 5.0.1 there will be no way for you to downgrade, even with blobs, until they develop a bootrom exploit for A5 devices. I can tell you right now that 5.1 does indeed improve battery life on the 4S, unfortunately once it comes out you will have to decide between staying on 5.0.1 for Jailbreaking or updating and not being able to jailbreak.
