    need help changing stock battery meter to read for extended battery!!!

    Hello all! I want to change my battery meter to read my extended battery. I found this in root explore sys/devices/platform/cpcap_battery/power_supply/battery/battery_charge_design and it has 1390 when u open in text editor but when I change it, it goes right back to 1390. Anyone know how I can edit this file. I have checked all permissions and was in R/W mode but yet it still doesn't change it.

    II have even went throw each folder on the way to battery_charge_design and checked all permissions for them and still can't get it to change. Any help would be appreciated.

    I see your using root explore from the other thread. Well when I open it with vi it originally said readonly. So I assume its still read only for you because I was in terminal as the su. If you want to change it with root explore, I assume you will need to go into the terminal and change it so the file is actually read/write for owner root. After you edit it, I would suggest changing it back to readonly..

    Im still trying to figure out the escape key in vi... ugh.

    My battery reads as a stock battery but stays at 5% till it finally does run out of power. My og Droid all I would have to do is reboot phone and it would read around 60% but D2G don't do that I reboot and it still says 5% when I know I have a lot of battery left. We r trying to get the phone to read as a 3500mAh battery instead of 1390mAh which is the stock battery.

    To change your control key in Terminal Emulator go to Preferences | Control key.
