Is there some reason that no ROMer/themer uses increments for the battery smaller than 5%? I know Ive flashed D1 ROMs that had increments of 5%...haven't seen any D2 ROMs though (only 10%). However, looking at my best friends iPhone, he has increments of 1%. I frequently hear him saying "Wow, my battery's at 2%...it usually cuts off at 3%". Why can't/don't we have the battery icon incremented by 1% in any ROMs/themes? Or are there ROMs/themes that do this and I've just completely missed them? lol
The phone its self only reports in 10% increments, no idea why :/

So is that the reason that I could get 5% increments on a D1...the OS can essentially be built from scratch while D2/DX cannot?
I think we could get 5 or even 1% increments on D2/DX. The battery xml's tell the device which image to display at that moment. Someone needs to edit the xml's to work in smaller increments. I've ported a few themes from galaxy s phones that have the images for 1% increments and if someone gave me some insight on editing xml's, id gladly take the time to make them work.
