    Well, it seems that Froyo has stopped the ability to use aftermarket batteries in our Droid X's. Is there a fix or any way around this issue?

    I know this is the smartass answer, but don't buy cheap fuel for your expensive device.

    That said, because I couldn't resist... It is probably hard coded, and if moto was smart, locked into the kernel. Until it is found where that code sits we are out of luck.

    I didn't know this either. What happens when you try to use a non-moto battery???

    after market battery

    I have an after market battery and it works but the Droid doesn't show the battery level and it gives a warning that the battery isn't a Motorola original to change it. I just don't know when the Droid will shut down. It says that it will not charge the battery but I haven't had time to verify this. It says this warning any time I plug in to the computer, car dock or bedside dock.
