    2. Select Shortcuts
    3. Settings
    4. Battery Use
    5. Ok
    6. Click newly created "Battery use" shortcut
    7. Sorry! Force close

    Just tried it on my D2. Pretty close to an X internally. No issue.

    Thanks. I'm pretty sure it's X specific. I'm also using LauncherPro but don't think it's the cause. FC every time on my X.

    When I link Battery Use to the "Quick Battery" widget, I have gotten a few FCs. Stock 2.2

    Strangely enough, I was getting FCs on Battery Indicator Pro this afternoon??? Cleared up on its own after several minutes.

    Very common problem (mine does it too), there have been other posts about it.

    A battery pull/restart usually clears it up temporarily but it's a bug in the program.

    Also plugging the phone into the charger will usually fix this, but it resets the counter for how long you've been unplugged, hence making the stats for the battery manager useless. They really need to address this as it is a new feature in froyo.

    Huh, mine is working this morning. This reeks of another MotoBlur bug.

    maurilax, thank you for the link. It is good to know that Motorola is aware and taking action.

    What is the deal with Motorblur? Am I missing the really crappy side of it? Why does everyone hate it?

    I can't say anything bad about. In fact, one of the forum posts I read on droidforums.net said that Motoblur is what gave us the ability to "pull" our update verses waiting for it to be pushed like the D1 chaps had to. Even if that bit of info is false, I still appreciate having it on my phone.

    Motorola recently acknowledged the crash with the battery information shortcut.

    They claim it will be fixed "in the future."
