1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Is there any way to get non-OEM batteries to show charge/temp?

    I know that since the 2.2 update, the Droid X does not allow non-OEM batteries to show their charge or battery temperature. Seems pretty lousy since I have two of them and OEM batteries are expensive.

    Since we can modify so many other components of the machine, is there any hack or work-around to get it to work? Or is that just another problem due to the locked bootloader/kernel?

    Same across all ROMs I've used, although I admit to not testing it purposefully on each one.

    I know it didn't work on ApeX, RubiX focused, Tranquility, or DarkSlide, but I don't remember which version I had at the time. I don't remember if it worked on Fission or not. Never tried Liberty, but since most of its base is GummyJAR (as is RubiX) I wouldn't think it would.

    Maybe its something in the kernel. I read that all roms use the same kernel because the moto has a locked boot loader in the x and it will only boot a signed kernel.
