Craig's Root Battery
Rooted Users... (non rooted users have a limited adb command set)
(This works when you switch your phone screen off like a normal day at work or school... using this while playing games won't save you power while the game plays but will save you hours off life during the time not in use , the savings happen when the screen goes off during a normal days use or while you sleep!)
There's now a return to homescreen option for when the display goes off, reason for this option is if you run an intensive application a game for example, it will drain the battery from intensive cpu instructions, switch on return to homescreen option and it will then return to the main screen and any cpu intensive foreground app is frozen.
AC/Wifi/USB/Wi Charge Control
USB2 supplies 500ma of current, so if your phone is using USB to charge, it's going to be slower than the AC wall plug of 1000ma (for quick charge)
So, let's suppose you wish to switch WIFI off to help your phone charge faster on USB, you select do not control wifi when AC, select ac from the list, when AC at the wall is plugged in, wifi will stay on when the screen goes off, if you plugin a USB cable, wifi will go off to help charge faster, you can now differentiate between power sources to optimize charge time.
Where's my droid owners....
send the message via text to your phone "wmd" to launch the app if it's not running (it should be, the developer of WMD claims there's no problem there end, but for me, WMD suddenly stops working and i have to run the app again to get it working..
simply send the text message "wmd" to launch where's my droid....
"WMD" - launches WMD
"GPS" - this command turns your mobile data on and switches wifi off for 50 seconds
(I set the command word in Where's my droid to "gps")
if you ever have your phone lost or stolen, this is the quickest way to get the location, providing you have some mobile data, to get the AGPS help GPS get a fix, after 50 seconds it will return back to whatever your settings were to save battery life.
How to use ... Run it, then simply close it
If you see the icon top left corner, it's working! Use the menu to clean Android to make it run faster (restore makes everything go back to how it was before, slow) repair simply puts 1 application back in startup...
Menu Commands (locate the menu from a side swipe from the left side of the screen or press the menu icon top corner left)
Repair - restores an app to the bootup, eg for alarm clocks that you need, more you run the slower your phone and less memory.
Clean - removes apps from boot up
Restore - places all the crap back on bootup
Start Service - launches the service
Stop Service and exit - kills the service.
Top left corner is a menu icon, click on that to access the menu where you can clean Android of any free memory, deletes the cache it also disables 3rd party app's from starting up making your phone faster and more responsive.
Only 5 meg of memory after a reboot! ( Yes due to the way Android works sorry! )
any issues, email from the menu in the app (swipe from the left of the screen for the menu options)
*low memory footprint after reboot!
