Thanks !

How is your battery life then ?

Also is anyone else using Google music ?


My battery life is better but not as good as when I was using the Blueginger rom, CM7 seems to use alot of battery. Btw...I don't use fancy animations and have the majority disabled as that can impact battery.

Most of my battery goes down when I do not do anything so I don't what is going on ... and when I listen music ...

Tilal as you made this CM7 build, any idea ? what settings to use ?

I really don't know - my battery life has gone down as well compared to BlueGinger. I will try and see if I can fix it but right now I'm really focused on unlocking this darn phone.

If the Skate uses the same proximity sensor as the Blade then there was a recent fix in the kernel source (1 day ago). Without that fix I think that the wake lock used by the proximity sensor is not always cleared and that would prevent the phone from going to sleep (= battery drain). Not sure if this is the reason but I though it was worth mentioning.

So disabling the proximity sensor should help ?

Not sure if you can thought ..

Ok i wanted to thank you for all this, I am taking the phone for a week trip. I won't be able to help you if you need more from me for the unlock before end of next week.

My only concern now with this ROM is battery life as it is really really bad.

EDIT: I tryed this http://forum.xda-dev...ad.php?t=675136 I'll tell you how it works (it was on WCDMA preferred i have put GSM auto PRL)

EDIT2: has I had 10% drown in 15 minutes i got back to wcdma preferred but i don't know ...

Does re-calibrating the proximity sensor not help?

Dial pad *983*0# then scroll down to sensors

This code does not work in my phone, i don't know why but I could recalibrate in the ZTE Skate settings app (don't know why it is here). It did not help.
Main issue is when listening to music and when on 3G as drains it so fast i don't know why (even in idle)

Should I recalibrate Battery (taking out the file in data/system) ?

I don't get it, already 8% gone in 11 minutes ...

10% in 15 minutes ...

It probably has to do with the fact that it is a testing phone ... even with 1400 battery.

I even underclocked the CPU to 480mhz ...

EDIT: 19% down in 1h30 not doing anything ...

Hi all, I come again for help, if you can help me after reading this it would be appreciated !

First I would like to thanks Tilal and kallt_kaffe for their help as the device is working indeed.
I am using CM7 version made by tilal for me

I have one major issue with the device, it is the battery life. If I don't activate data, only GSM, I can make 16-20h maybe, with data it is less than 10H, even 6h or less, even if I don't use it ...

- I have gmail+ 2 mails synching and some apps like google +, fancy widget for the weather and the google apps (including google music).

- I tried recalibrating the battery, but no luck.

- The CPU is underclocked to 480 mhz all the time (and 245 if no activity)

- when listening to music (not streaming) it seems to drain even faster


What should I do ? 6h of a phone not doing anything is not really usable. should I try wipe again all reinstall ROM and Kernel to see if it works better? Battery usage does not show that there is an app that is using all the battery life. Even in plane mode it is not great ... (should last for days ...)
Should I change ROM (could be the best solution) and if so can someone help me as my device as a different screen and a flipped screen and I have no idea how to get it to work and how tilal and kallt_kaffe made it work.


Thank you for your help if you can help me, that would be awsome!

I use setcpu for root user with CM7 and i love that program! i created a profile that underclock the cpu to 122mhz when the screen goes off. It's a bit slow when you press the unlock hardware key, but i left it for five hours and the battery was at the same level (%) as before!
