    Battery Reset

    Hi all, I have forgotten if its better to reset your battery stats when fully charged or dead! Or can you just do it at anytime, thanks x
    I have done so much flashing of roms recently my battery seems to be a little "confused"!

    I think this is the "official" way...

    Let the phone completely run out of charge.
    Turn it on again just to use up the very last bit.
    Take the battery completely out for a few seconds, then put it back in.
    With the phone turned off, charge it fully.
    Unplug the charger.
    Plug it back in to give it that final boost.
    Boot into recovery mode (I know you're on Darky's Swiper ) and use the Voodoo recovery to wipe the battery stats.
    Reboot.

    Thanks Goots will do that when it's run down again as I don't think it's quite right at the moment. When fully charged I get it jumping down to 98 almost immediately even after leaving it to over charge a bit x

    I had the same issue with the battery dropping to 98%. I used up the charge till it turned off then made sure it would not turn on again unless the charger was plugged in. Charged to a 1%, enough to wipe battery stats then charged fully till full (Guiness grammer!). When I unplugged I was on 100% (not for long) but then 99% lasted quite a while.

    I'm just confused as to whether you should wipe stats when full or when empty. If you wipe stats from full then surely it will only ever charge to what the phone thought was 100% (I've charged till it beeps, then unplugged and replugged till it beeps again, only ever 98% full). But if you wipe from empty then charge of the battery will only last until there is charge in the battery.

    I'm also taking for granted that unlike when the battery is fully charged the charger/phone will cut the power from the mains, when the battery is empty it does not think that there is no charge left, it will use charge until there is no charge left.

    ps Back from the pub and Guiness train of thought is taking effect!

    Well it does sound a little Irish but makes sense also (and I havent touched a drop!) Will try Goots way and if I am not happy after that will try your way, cant say fairer than that!
