3 yrs old battery is the root of this problem. Flashing roms may affect your battery life but it happens only when you do it too much.
From my personal experience I can say that battery calibration is more a myth than necessity.

Correct. And calibration is an absolute myth. It's impossible to (re)calibrate these batteries.
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !

If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

There's a "Reset Fuel Gauge Chip" option in Dorimanx kernel and it stabilized my phones battery. It used to show 30% after a restart just right after i unplugged it from the power source
