Re: 4.4.2 - Battery Drain issue - Workaround \ Fix

I also did this though,

 

Settings > Google (accounts) > Ads > Tick the box for Opt out of interest-based ads and also disable back up of your data by going to Settings > Backup & reset (Personal) > uncheck the box for “Back up my data”.

 

If you are unable to uninstall the update for Google Play Services from Settings > Apps, go to Settings -> Security -> Device administrators and disable "Android Device Manager"

 

The only thing I kept was location settings which is at high accuracy with the 5.0.89

For me, this had been not sufficient to stop extra battery drain
I had also to *disable* the "Google Backup Transport".
Settings->Apps->disabled should appears like this:

gbt disabled

I was wondering also if any other brands suffer from the same problem.

Can you post any recent links to sources?

 

What I did find was someone posting that he Fixed the issue in a custom Rom..

Here http://forum.xda-developers.com/xperia-z/orig-development/kma-cm-11-101-sony-kernel-blobs-t2708325/p... more info. 

 

Did anyone try that Rom?
