I live in Thailand and bought my jailbroken Iphone 3gs last nov. I have never updated it but i noticed that on the new update got the Iphone through Itunes that one of the problems they solved was fluctuating battery readings. Only last week mine started to do this. It will say it has 20% left then when i plug it in it jumps to 80%.

I am online with my phone a lot but never use it for email or much else.


Any ideas?


Edit= It is the 3gs 16gb
version= 3.1.2 (7D11)
Firmware= 05.11.07

When you plug in the charger into the iPhone, it should jump a little from where it is since it's getting a huge rush of current in one shot, I'd totally expect a 10-15% bump from where you are the moment you plug the charger in..but 20 to 80% is too dramatic.

You would need to upgrade to 3.1.3 while preserving your 5.11.07

If you go to Apple, iPhone & iPad News | Forums | ModMyi.com (http://modmyi.com/)

They can help you with this process. Be careful If you update your modem firmware you loose your unlock, possibly forever....

Mate you just hit the nail on the head. Itís Thailand electric system. Itís terrible, the current insít stable, thereís no earths for house electrics etc. Thanks.

Thanks mate. I donít use my phone for all that much so there is no need for me to update. My next Iphone update will be when i buy a new Iphone. If you read my reply above you will see itís is probably down to unstable Thai electrics.


Thanks for the reply though..........
