    No need to hibernate any system files.. also if you hibernate whatsapp or any messenger the notifications shall be delayed. you can try GCM Push feature as its still better than deep hibernation.

    Hi funk, can you put some screenshot of application you limited using Amplify,me & @tim31 looking for the wake lock and alarms which we can tame.

    PS-I don't have any battery drain issue but I want to experience what this powerful app else can do to increase my SOT averaging 5.5hrs with heavy to moderate usage.
    Also I got Pro version of amplify.

    Thanks in advance

    aftr a long time i decided to root my opo. so i sat down n got down to it. followd al the instructions frm youtube thru some channel known as C4etech. he is actually good. i installed the adb drivers and aftr tat i did the "fastboot oem unlock" too. now i am stuck in "fastboot flash recovery" option. I renamed the TWRP file too and the error i am gettin is "cannot load recovery".

    Hard reboot and check if boot loader is unlocked

    When your phone restarts just go ahead and put it in fastboot mode again to verify that it was properly unlocked by typing fastboot oem device-info and making sure it says 'unlocked: true'

    You can now reboot your phone with the fastboot reboot command.

    There on flash twrp..

    hey hi . i tried it and i am gettin the same error again. as u told me to type in "fastboot oem device-info", i did, and i got ths "device tampered;true device unlocked;false charger screen disabled;false". the device has been unlocked.
    then tried the method again to flash the recovery file. but met with the same error again.
    "target reported max download size of 1073741824 bytes
    error: cannot load 'recovery.img' : No error"

    this is the error i am getting right now. i dont know wht to do.

    @Funk Wizard
    Hi Brother,
    Updated the system yesterday...
    Was monitoring the battery performance...
    Dint find any noticeable changes...:(

    Any idea what could be done to improve the present condition...!??
    I badly miss the battery performance from kitkat, seriously it was good...
    I have never rooted my phone..it is stock...
    I have tried almost everything mentioned in the posts for improving battery life...

    Do you think a factory reset could bring any change..?? I have never done this yet...

    Many thanks..;)

    Not sure if it going to help, I was in the same boat, I did the following 3 days back and looks like my battery life is improved a little bit, stil in early stage to confirm, but here you go:

    I done factory reset but there was no considerable change then I disabled gestures, double tap to wake and also those, I am seeing a considerable change. Still my first charge is going on after the change.

    I would suggest try disabling the gestures and see, before you go for factory reset.

    From the initial stage itself I am using the phone by disabling all the gestures, blocking the wakeup and other options in the Privacy Guard, adaptive back-light etc...

    Still, there is not much effect...CM12 battery backup is no way near the CM11S...

    Besides this, I have another issue....
    After the update...my phone doesnt have that fluidity which L has...
    I have watched the videos, and in all the of them the phone has a smoothness....while opening the menu...the drop down notifications etc...
    In my phone...everything is too fast...
    I tried changing the animation from .5x to 2x...there was no change....:confused::confused:

    Please suggest me if that can be fixed as well...
