Ok so here is the method that I used going from build 10 to 11 and am using right now to go to 12.

1. Using Titanium Backup choose filters and only show user apps and back them up.
2. Boot into recovery, and make a nandroid backup just in case.
3. choose Mounts and Storage and format system,data and cache(in that order).
4. Go back and choose advanced and wipe dalvik cache.
5. Mount /system
6. Install CM7 zip.
7. Wipe dalvik cache again. (might be placebo)
8. Install GApps
9. Camera&MMS Fix.zip
10. Wipe dalvik again
11. I personally run imoseyon tweaks with every nightly, so install v7.1 zip
12. wipe dalvik one last time.
13. Unmount /system and reboot.
14. Once booted up skip signing into google. I have TB saved to my sd card so i install it.
16. Choose filters in TB and only show uninstalled apps and then run the batch to restore the user apps with data.*note that system data shows "0"*
17. Charge to full and recalibrate the battery.

Yes its lengthly but going from 10 to 11 i noticed an increase in battery life getting 15+ hours for the first time since running CM7. Experience the same results with build 12 as well.

BobAbooey has tested this for me as well as he is getting his best battery life yet to date.

Looking for a large number of testers to apply this install method and report back with their results as I want to make sure this isnt just luck.

Thanks.

You're method is redundant.
Also to those that are curious..
Boot into recovery. Wipe dalvik. Install nightly.
Simple as that
For battery results. Extinguish battery life charge to full. Wipe battery stats. Reboot

Wiping dalvik is android app cache. If you don't run apps you wont have any dalvik to remove. Removing data in between nightlies is also useless. You're just removing apps and settings and then restoring apps...not sure of what your intentions were.

What about starting the day by having a charged battery, wiping stats and dalvik?

I always start the day full. Just trying to figure the right combo of stuff.

Only need to remove bat stats after you flash a rom /nightly/optimization script..such as imoseyon's
The dalvik is good to wipe when switching builds. Like 2.3.3-2.3.4
Bat stats should be wiped after a drain and complete charge for best accuracy

For better battery life try to let your battery get as low as possible. Then charge it until it is full. Take it off of the charger as soon as it is complete

Was honestly just trying a different combination from the norm as the normal routine was giving me shot battery life seeing as how ppl are still complaining about poor life other than a select few. So tak this method as you will but until cvpcs commits to the battery drain problem being fixed i will continue to test this method. I also wiped system this morning before installing 12 an I'm sitting at 70% after 7.5 hours with 1.5 hours display and 45 min phone. So to each his own in that one

I didn't mean to say your method was wrong, I'm simply stating what you need to change some things
Don't wipe dalvik so much
Wipe battery after full drain/full charge
Use your clockwork backup to do advanced restore and only restore data

Your idea in general is great, if you can't take constructive criticism then don't do open-source work :)

Lol np. I'm pretty sure that's restoring system data as well which defeats the purpose. Tb restore Apps and data only restores app data afaik

not system data
I think that would be advanced restoring the /system
if you don't test for yourself you'll never know though

edit: no, you're right that would do system data too
perhaps you could do

reboot to recovery
wipe cache
wipe dalvik
make backup (cwr/titanium)
wipe data cache
install all the zips (nightly, camfix..what have you)
fulldrain/fullcharge
wipe bat stats

vs. your method just to have some comparison
you can't know one method is "better" if you only have one method
