    When I choose Power Off from the menu, the phone just reboots into recovery mode. I wanted to power down and try the battery calibration. Any help?

    If it was me, I would just pull the battery.

    If it still stays on....I would be scared.....

    Do you have CWR installed? If so the tbolt will boot back in to recovery for some reason. Not sure exactly why. I already did the battery calibration and now I plan on rooting.

    Yes I have CW installed.
    Yes! Its only doing it when plugged in.

    Some places are calling it Bump charging too. There was a thread here on the forums but now I can't find it. I found it over at android central.

    When I bought the TB I didn't let it charge 24 hours. I let it charge till I got the green light and then started using it. It seems like my battery always drops so the same level really fast and then it levels off.

    Ok. How does one perform a battery calibration with the battery not in the device?

    Yup that's where mine hits too. Drops to 50% really fast and then it tapers off. That was before I set up my SetCPU profiles to throttle back at 50% also. It was doing this pre-root basically from day one.

    So you are commenting on something you know nothing about because?
    Part of the calibration entails having the phone powered OFF but plugged in and charging. Hence my issue in that as soon as I plug it in, it boots into recovery and will not power down. I can't perform the steps as directed if the phone will not remain powered off while plugged in.

    Im rooted running Perfect Storm ROM, overclocked to 1.5ghz (currently) running autostarts and have a few profiles setup in setcpu along with a few other settings and battery is actually pretty good.

    Right now Im a 5 hours unplugged, few phone calls, txts and a little playing and Im at 90%.
