    Does this hack exist?!

    I was wondering if someone has made or thought of making a hack to allow the Droid to be charged while it is fully turned off.

    If this hack currently does not exist, can someone create it? If the Droid was able to charge while it was fully off I think we would see a huge decrease in the amount of time needed to fully re-charge the phone.

    So, does it exist?

    I would think that might be more of an app then a hack. I don't think anyone has done it yet, but you never know. I'm frequently wrong (and amazed) by what this device can do.

    That would require modifying the emi/BIOS code which Motorola will likely never release.

    Turn off the display while it is charging. That should help since the display is a big battery drainer.

    1.Plug in your phone with USB to computer.
    2.Turn off your phone.

    There you go.

    Yeah, but I want to be able to do this via the wall charger. The wall charger seems to charge the phone faster for me since I think it puts out more power than the USB 2.0 port on my PC.

    Someone, and I don't remember who, makes a docking station that allows a second battery to by plugged into the back of the DS. Or you can get a second and thrid battery and a portable charger from Ebay. Not a perfect solution.

    Don't think an app would do it. The phone turns on as soon as any charger is connected to it. Presently you cannot turn the phone off with a charger connected, it will just reboot and powerup....I think a BIOS change is required

    Yea def a bios edit and a more than beginner hack. Someone said Motorola won't release it, well that's the point of the word "hack" to get in change and edit things without permission

    This would probably be a really bad idea. It seems that the charging control is built into the phone, not the charger itself. Really bad things happen when you overcharge Li-ion batteries (as in very hot fire that's hard to stop). It's not hard to get them over a safe voltage, and even more so when they're warm (like when charging!).
