Default [Q] How to reset battery counter

Hello fellas, I just have that question. How do I reset the battery meter that is built-in? I'm running the stock US retail firmware - 4.4.2 Please find an attached pic in case you don't know what the hell I'm talking about

Charge it to 100% and let it charge for two hours more.. that will recalibrate the battery. If you have a custom recovery, charge the phone to 100% and then boot into your recovery Advanced>Wipe Battery Stats.... That should do it! BTW, how is the battery life and have you encountered any issues with your moto G?

if you just want to have the usage data in settings --> battery removed just charge it to 100 %.

if you wan to recalibrate the battery:
charge to 100% when turned off. use till it's it shuts off. charge again to full while turned on.
GALAXY S--> GALAXY NEXUS --> GALAXY S3 --> ONE X --> MOTO G

Thanks, but I didn't mean recalibrate it. I meant how do you reset that counter (as seen in the screenshot) Is any other methoed BESIDES charging it to 100%?

factory reset works to, lol. I You could try to wipe cache in recovery, this should be also working with stock recovery.

Whenever you charge the phone over 90%, the count is reset. Just wanted to let you know that
