Hi guys, I have managed to jailbreak my iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3.3 using JailbreakMe 3.0, and since then I noticed that the battery of my iPhone drain very fast. Is there an app or jailbreak tweak in Cydia with which I could boost the battery timings of my iPhone? Any tips? Thanks in advance.

Auto3G is an awesome Cydia tweak that might help you to enhance or prolong the battery life of your iPhone. Well, as the name suggest, the app has nothing to do with your battery, Auto3G is a tweak that automatically turns off the 3G network feature of your iPhone when you were not using your iPhone 4. The app can be downloaded from Cydia Store via BigBoss repo. Additionally, if you have SBSettings installed on your iPhone, then you can install a jailbreak app called Remove Background. This app will allow you to remove all apps running in the background.
Aside from installing these jailbreak apps, you could also downgrade your iPhone back to iOS 4.2.1 (this is possible if you have saved SHSH blobs) as this firmware has the best battery standby time due to the fact that it uses less RAM and processor in comparison to iOS 4.3.3 or other firmware. The tutorial on how to downgrade firmware using TinyUmbrella can be found here.
