How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an Iphone 4, 4.2.1, was jailbreak with redsnow thetered then I installed the GreenPois0n RC5b2. All well and good until he appeared GreenPois0n RC5b4. I thought it was a better version and so I installed it. But I have seen a rapid battery drain. I reinstalled GreenPois0n RC5b2 over b4 and now everything is ok. What happens?

Thank you to those who have created and tried to defend GreenPois0n. You made me life easier!

I haven't actually JBd using the new one yet. But according to past experience with other jailbreaks, download SBsettings from Cydia, and using that tweak, make sure SSH is turned OFF, along with Wifi and whatever you're not actually using. SSH is usually the key though as it kills battery extremely quickly if left ON.

I used that tweak with SSH and ssh and wifi was on in both cases, with JB with GP rc5 b2 and with GP rc b4. When I use the las version, baterry was drain extremely quikly, phone used same way. So i think is not that cause, myco

The SSH daemon doesn't even run unless you connect to it. Otherwise, the only thing running is launchd, which (among other things) listens for connections and spawns a daemon when/as needed. Launchd runs anyway, irrespective of whether SSH is enabled, so I doubt you'll see any battery improvement.
