Let it discharge completely first, then charge to 100% without turning it on, go into clockwork (assuming rooted and have Bootstrap) scroll down to 'advanced', then to 'wipe battery stats' click yes and reboot.. :)

Yep rooted thanks I'll give it a try

Droid x apex and revolutionblue 1.4 never been faster or had a battery last as long

I am middle of doing this. Its almost run down, and ready to recharge. Do I recharge it turned off... or do I leave it on, but connected to the charger?

Sorry for the confusion...Let it charge to 100% without turning it on, then turn the phone on, boot up, goto to Bootstrap to get to clockwork.....then where I left off.. :)

Recharge it turned off..that's the proper way to do it

Once it turns off completely, hit the power button a few times just to make sure it's completely done, then plug it in, then follow the aforementioned instructions.. :)

Sounds good. Although I already did the bootstrap/advanced/reset battery thing. Guess I will do it again once its recharged. I wonder how long it will take to charge back to 100%? Guess I will leave it overnight.... it should be 100% in the am. :)

Yea, shouldn't take longer than a couple of hours or so..It's also good practice to always have a 100% charge on the battery when flashing different Rom's..Solves a lot of battery issues.. :)

Yea, the %'s were off..Once you complete this, you'll have a much more reliable indicator. :)
