The solution has been tested on the HTC Legend, but it may well work on other types of phones just as well.
No i have not tried the solution given in the above posts but i have tried various other method given on the atrix forum but nothing worked for me so what is the main reason of this issue is it hardware or software.

From where i can download the Battery moniter by simmo bcoz can't find it on the market can u send me a link of the app.

Default battery monitor by simmo

hello,
I had the same problem couldn't find battery monitor by simmo. Turns out the latest version only works on more recent Android 4.0 systems. If you google for "google play" on your phone and pick to open with browser rather than play and search for "sim2k" simmo's new name you can find the app. In the description there is a link to DropBox for an earlier verison of the application. It says Android 2.3 but I've used on 2.2 and it works fine. You have to go into your settings and allow installing applications from non market sources.

Hello everyone
I have some strange problem: can't remove battery from device. It was easy to remove it month ago, but now it don't want to slide away.
Then, it very slowly charges from network. ~50%/night, but if reboot, it will say that 100%.
Loses energy very fast (3-4 hours)then, turns off when ~30%
Calibration not helped
Wiping battery stats not helped too
what to do?

Be careful. If the charging electronics failed and are now overcharging the battery, it is possible that the battery is bulging from internal gas production. In the very worst case it could explode. This has happened before. (Hello, Apple.)

Which type of phone do you have? Please write that into your user profile here, so you don't have to explain it every time.

Warranty void. But if for whatever reason you need to claim it, unroot again and go back to stock!

As for removing a battery, try using the red battery removal mechanism. You never mentioned it, so I'm suggesting it.

It is possible that a pure hardware failure is still covered by the warranty, regardless of whether the phone is rooted or not.

But in the worst case you could unroot it and put an older stock Android on it again, one of the RUU packages. The procedure is similar to the rooting process.
