    Charge to full...with phone plugged in...wipe stats. You can do it in root explorer or terminal. I just use root explorer. As soon as I delete..unplug phone and use till it powers off. Then charge fully

    How so in RE? Would this be beneficial for my extended battery? If I reboot at 20%, its at 50% when it comes back on...?

    Is it really necessary to run the battery to 0% twice? I already did it once and wiped stats once it hit 100%.

    You do NOT need to run it dead before wiping stats. The important part is that your phone goes from 100% charged to 100% dead after you reset the stats. So if you were at 100% when you reset them and then ran it dead, you are done.

    I updated the first post as it was redundant and not as clear as it could be.

    I wiped stats after charging it to 100% from dead so I suppose I have to run it dead again. Thanks for the clarification.

    Crap, I don't think I typed su before the rm command. Will I get an error if I tried to remove the stats file? I don't want to test it as I'll have to repeat the process again.

    Do you need to charge it in the phone, or can you charge it using a wall charger? I remember in the past when my phone runs dead and I try to plug it in it enters a boot loop and won't come out unless I charge the battery using my external wall charger.

    you are better off charging full and then going to /data/system in root explorer and delete the batterystats.bin file.

    Save yourself juice that you are spending by booting to recovery to wipe the stats.

    you can also do this via terminal.

    su
    cd /data/system
    rm /batterystats.bin


    done.


    I personally think the best practice is to delete batt stats while phone is 100% charged, run it down dead, then recharge to 100%. Thats what I always do.

    I did it last night, and just as I expected when I let the battery run dead, I went to plug it in to charge it and it went into a boot loop. So I had to charge the battery for a minute using the wall charger to give it just enough juice to boot up and start charging, it was still at 5% so I assume it will still be fine. Time will tell.

    Resetting the stats definitely helped my uptime. Thanks to Pete for putting this as an option in the ROM toolkit.

    So in the process of doing this my phone goes down to 20% then to the red X. B ecause my phone has been freezing up lately....I had to do reboot...after rebooting, 40% was listed. It proceeded to go down to 40 then 20....something is definitely screwy with the battery monitoring

    It worked for me finally after doing the process twice. Charged to 100%, wiped battery, drained it, charged it back up, drained it again. Ive been using my phone all day at work, mainly texting and playing a little snes. When i got home i was at 80%. Before, i was around 40-50%
