Question [Q] Battery showing full charge but only 2 s available


I'm having this problem since a few days ago.

All of a sudden my GS2 started hanging and turning off by itself, I thought it was time foa factory reset. The battery was showing full charge but it was losing it fast and the available time was only a couple on hours.
I was using the latest stock JB rooted and I decided to try CyanogenMod KK. With CM it got worse, now the battery on full chage connected to the charger show 0 seconds available and it I disconnect it, the time starts to increase from 0s to a couple of minutes and the phone turns off without warning.

Is this a signal that the battery is dead?

If it's happening with stock (though if you didn't do a 'clean' install of stock, try one first), new battery, and if it's still happening, replace USB board/port. Quick/easy/cheap (US$10-$15 or so) to do yourself; KeithRoss39 has a guide in the General section which has all the info you need to get it done (it's not stickied, search for 'replace USB charger board' or similar).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses

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