T1 Burns battery: how to unroot?
I rooted my T1 a little less than two weeks ago and I also added the Morkl homescreen. Only other modifications I did was adding the tiny program for enabling/disabling fast screen refresh and a korean bookstore app.
Then I noted that flipping through 60ish pages of time magazine over the course of 1½ hours on and off... I lost 15% power. The reader kept loosing power even when not being used. I kept it in the box with a near full charge since then, and today 5 days later it is out of power.
1. any idea what is causing this extreme power drain?
2. will unrooting (installing the restore package for the minimal root) and re-rooting solve the problem?
3. HOW do I unroot the root package, the Morkl home screen and the three apps
I'm not willing to accept that my device cannot be rooted, so I hope you guys have some great ideas :,(

This also happened to me: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=175357
I managed to fix my device though. For me, I had to unroot and then do a factory reset. The unrooting process actually bricked my device so I had to do an SD-card rescue. Unrooting alone did not solve the issue but after I had done the factory reset, everything was back to normal. I haven't tried rooting it again, but I don't think I will.
Unrooting involves the same steps as rooting. Just follow this Wiki and you should be fine (It also has steps for an SD-card rescue and a link to how to do a factory reset.): http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PRST...ing_and_Tweaks
Others have also had this issue, you might want to read into these posts if all else fails.

Don't worry, your device can be saved. However, I would suggest for you to evaluate whether you really need to root again. I personally just wanted a modified homescreen, but it's now apparent that rooting isn't a requirement for that.

Normally, the duration for "Screen on" and "Awake" should be nearly equal. If not, then there is an evil app...
My reader currently is at 30% and BetterBatterystats says
8d 23h 36m since unplugged
8d 18h 32m Deep Sleep
5h 3m Awake
4h 46m Screen on
9m Wifi on
I had my reader discharge over night some times.... then it said like 1d 20h since unplugged, 1d 15h awake, 15m screen on....
