I discovered it. I like liquids battery with percentage, always used morph to install it. When I learned of compache, a simple /system/bin/compcache stats told me that it wasn't working. After two days and about 50 clean installs,, i found it was busy box fault. As soon as you open busy box and apply it, it would break compchace in a way that I could not repair it. even by reinstalling it from scratch and new kernel.
Edit* easy test,, load up Liguid's 1.5 , runs script to veryfy compcache is working, then run busybox,, the run script again,, you can manually start it, but it wont auto start anymore
couple hours later*
I dont know where i read that morph needs busybox, but I guess it was some bad info, becasue I was able to apply my favority battery icon, sweet! I get to have the liquid battery icon and compcahce, WOOT!
