    Hey all, I got my Nexus two days ago and rooted it ASAP, and did flash my first ROM at 100% battery like I did on the Droid.


    However, I have not really let the phone get below 50% and have been charging it a lot. I read though that I should let it go through several "power cycles", does this mean charge to full, then let the phone die and turn off then repeat?


    As far as deleting battery stats, I have seen 2 methods that are opposites of the other. In one, you do several power cycles then wipe battery stats and you are good to go. The other one, you wipe stats first, then do the power cycles. Which one is correct?


    Lastly, I know on the Droid I only worried about battery stats in reference to flashing ROMs in which I wiped data. Is there a need to be at 100% battery when flashing kernels? or just ROMs


    Thanks!!

    You can load roms and kernels any time, but to write battery stats you need to be at 100.

    Doesnt flashing a ROM wipe battery stats since it is in /data?
