    6.1 iP5 - worse battery with exact same settings and usage pattern.
    That's interesting. I noticed faster battery consumption with my 5. I use about 5 (max) tweaks from cydia.

    iOS6 "re-turns on" some battery hogging things we'd been taught to turn off in iOS 5 in the system location services. The only two things you need on in that window are Compass Calibration and Traffic. Everything else should be off - especially Cell Network Search which is s HUUUGE battery hog and useless unless you fly to other countries daily. Turn that off and you'll notice better battery life.

    Make sure you only have Location services on for apps that really need it.

    And turn off BlueTooth if you never use it. Another big battery hog.

    I keep Location off for Compass and Traffic as well. I use Waze for traffic.

    Location services in that window has nothing to do with YOU getting traffic data in the maps program but rather its there to report YOU in YOUR car's position as part of traffic flow to the Maps software. Most people don't understand that. Waze gives you traffic data about where you're traveling. But the Traffic button in location services on your phone gives data about your position in your car to others consulting the Maps app. The girometer in the iPhone can tell the difference between you traveling in a car and just walking around. So it's not reporting your position while you're sitting at your house.

    Damn I really wish I could use 3D apple maps in japan :/
    I'm hoping 6.1.1 fixes Weather.app for JB buccaneers.

    "Weather" isn't just an icon, its a matter of life and death.

    Maybe they don't care anymore about us and they gonna let us be
    No they want to get as many tweaks running so they have something to implement into ios7
    Hi. Does anyone know is iBlacklist available in the app store? can it only be purchased outside the app store? If so, is it hard to install? Thanks everyone.

    OH!! So you're having the battery counter with two hyphens thru it too, Anthony?!? Been driving me batty!! Have you narrowed it down to a tweak conflict? I can't get my battery to register usage at all these last few days. Is yours, after a respring showing "0" minutes? Or just a pair of hyphens "--" ?

    Any ideas what this is? I was going to restore again and add one tweak at a time and see which one made the battery indicator go wonky.
