    When flashing the ROMs have you followed these steps?

    1. factory wipe / reset
    2. wipe cache (some say twice)
    3. wipe dalvik cache
    4. install ROM

    If not it can cause various issues. Usually you can get away without 2 & 3, but this is what can cause problems.

    What kernel are you using? CWM is the only way to go IMO

    Also, if you're anything like me - you'll install all your software as soon as you've flashed the ROM. If so, try leaving it a day or so... Could be one of your apps causing the issue.

    I have 2 issues with this post.

    Firstly, CWM is not, i repeat NOT, a kernel. It is simply a recovery environment, much like the winpe environment used to repair windows.

    Secondly, the installation of apps immmediately after flashing will not cause this. It is memory leak or background system app causing the problem. @X-13 and @CHR1S can you both do something for me?

    Post your phone model numbers, android version, kernel version and firmware build version? Also go into battery status and check what is causing the battery drain. Ideally your android system and Android OS should both below 10%.

    If you are still on a custom rom at the minute, yes please. It might be something obvious that is causing it. If you have already gone back to stock then it doesn't matter

    I realise it's not the kernel, simply used the wrong lingo - but some kernels do work better with CWM from what I've read - only ever used CWM for a prolonged period for the recovery so can't speak from experience, only what I've read.

    When it came to my comment on the apps - that wasn't the point I was making, what I was meaning is - if the apps are installed immediately, it could be the apps that are causing the the drainage of battery (not necessarily when they're installed). I was merely mentioning doing this to monitor the battery usage with a fresh install of a ROM to be certain it is the system causing the battery drain and not a 3rd party app.

    Negative. The os and the kernal simply does not care what recovery is installed. Ever. Once booted into android, it has no effect.

    And twrp is the way to go

    +1. TWRP is much better than CWM/CWMT.
