Re: Android pie battery drain: CPU idling high

updated my phone earlier today to the new november security patch. 4 hours later with phone mostly idling and display turned off battery was drained to 30% 5 hours before that the phone was removed from the charger with 100% charged. Will attempt a repair once the phone is charged enough.

@azakir;

 

Performing a software repair with Xperia Companion will not make any changes to the CPU core idling speeds since it was a change introduced with the Android Pie update. 

Regarding the battery consumption try letting the system stabilize for 2 days to see if it improves.

This was just a security update i was allready running android pie for a month prior. Didn;t have the battery issue at all during that time. it just happened this morning after performing the security update. But i will give it 2 days to see if it improves.

Re: Android pie battery drain: CPU idling high

Thanks for the reply, but time doesn't affect anything in Pie. I do notice a slightly less peak consumption when it's active, but in standby it's still draining for no reason

Re: Android pie battery drain: CPU idling high

hey Mehmeh, hereby the reaction from Belsimpel about my German Vodafone Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact.


Uit je e-mail begrijp ik dat je graag meer wilt weten over de Duitse firmware op je toestel. Door slim in te kopen op de Europese markt kunnen we je de laagste prijs en het grootste aanbod bieden. Je merkt hier verder niks van aan het product. Ieder toestel dat je bij Belsimpel  kopen voldoet aan de volgende kwaliteitseisen:

- Het toestel is altijd nieuw, ongebruikt en simlockvrij;
- Je hebt minstens 2 jaar wettelijke garantie;
- Het toestel is geschikt voor de Nederlandse markt en voor Nederlandse providers;
- Het toestel heeft een Europees CE-keurmerk en voldoet aan strenge eisen op gebied van gezondheid, veiligheid en milieu;
- Je krijgt veel ondersteuning voor je toestel, zoals handleidingen, tips & tricks en antwoord op veelgestelde vragen.

Als gevolg hiervan kan het zijn dat de Android 9 Pie update op hetzelfde toestel, maar van een ander herkomstland, op andere data kunnen worden geüpdatet.
Zoals je aangeeft heb jij een Duits toestel, het is niet mogelijk om dit te veranderen. Dit is natuurlijk niet wat je wil, maar op dit moment is er niet veel wat we kunnen doen. Op dit moment is het even afwachten tot deze update uitrolt in Duitsland, zodat het toestel gewoon geüpdatet kant worden.

Als je nog vragen hebt of toch een probleem ervaart met je telefoon, meld het ons dan via een reactie op deze mail.


Ik hoop je hiermee voldoende te hebben geïnformeerd.
Met vriendelijke groet,
XxxxXxxx

Re: Android pie battery drain: CPU idling high

I just discovered that I'm using the latest software on my German Vodafone XZ1C according to the site Xpericheck.comwp_ss_20181220_0001.png

 

Is this website known by diehard Xperiafans?

Re: Android pie battery drain: CPU idling high

Hello all,

 

I discovered that Sony Mobile is one of the most open source and developer friendly OEMs out there and everyone can unlock his device if that is possible. Check can do here: https://developer.sony.com/develop/open-devices/get-started/unlock-bootloader/

I'm working on it, because I can't found Platform tools 26.0.2 or older are required. Only the latest 28... I can find so at night installed complete Android Studio, hopefully I can manage it and unlock my Xperia XZ1 Compact.  

I'll get a factory reset so have to start again with install my phone or try to getting a backup on the phone with Experia Companion .

Also I dicovered an update for my device on this site: 

https://developer.sony.com/develop/open-devices/latest-updates.

 

Here is the laatste version dated Dec.21 2018 for mijn phone!

2018-12-21: Update of Beta AOSP Pie binaries (Android 9.0 – Kernel 4.9) for:

Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact (Yoshino)

Only here is kernel 4.9 and I've now 4.4 anyone know if this is oké for me or NOT OKE!

 

I'm gonna try Android Studio first with an old Samsung to find out what all happen.

 

Hopefully is anyone out there which can make a program with steps to take in Android Studio for unlocking phone using on your computer and go to the platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder and connect using command 'fastboot devices'.

Than finally unlock with the unlock code (I received already for my IMEI) using the command:

fastboot -i 0x0fce oem unlock 0x<insert your unlock code>

 

Maybe a very stupid question but where do I type those commands? 

THX!

Re: Android pie battery drain: CPU idling high

Hey! 

First of all: pretty shifty reply from Belsimpel. I'm not sure if I will buy a phone there ever again if they adopt these kinds of practices...

 

Secondly I'd advise you to watch out with unlocking your phone, as you will lose "drm keys" that make your Sony phone a Sony phone (acces

to apps and stuff). Google "xz1 compact xda" and take a look at the page of xda. That's a developers website where you can find more information on unlocking your phone and firmware flashing
