Recently the tab stopped charging while plugged to AC and in use...
Ok, it's not losing power as fast as when unplugged, but almost!
I have to turn it off and AC charge for hours and hours as the phone seem to think that it's connected to a PC all of a sudden!
Wasn't an issue up until last week then for no apparent reason it says "not charging" in Battery..
After a lot of reading around and confirming that it was not the charger or cable i dug deeper and it seems that USB charging is turned of by default on the Tab 2's except all custom kernels have it turned on and now that's always on!
Since the tab wont change charger state from USB to AC then all I'm getting is a slow trickle charge at the same slow pace, and it don't whether I am plugged in to the AC or into the PC!
So i figured hey, it's just a terminal command to force it to switch and that's when i realized that, no it's not that easy!
As USB charge is not only the default setting in custom kernels, its the ONLY option available!
The ability to have the tab swiftly reach a full charge while in use seems to currently be impossible with custom kernels it seems!
Is there a work around, or have everyone been to busy implementing USB charging to remember that sometimes you don't want to spend 8+ hours with tab turned off to get a full charge?
Below is a logcat from connecting and disconnecting charger cable to my GTP3110 WHILE connected to an AC adapter!
