Why are you calibrating it..sorry but that's new and personally don't think you should..however, i think calibration would be the same method as posted in the OP..

Been having a battery issue for a while now and I am wondering if this guide would help me or if anything else I could do.

Basically my phone was left with a game running (forgot it on while i was at an appointment) the phone drained down and shutdown automatically. It was fairly hot too. Since then I can't charge the battery more than 89-90%. I thought my battery was damaged so I bought a new one, same thing. So I figured it is the phone. But I am not sure what should be done.

I might try this guide to "re calibrate" my battery.

If anyone has a better idea, let me know.

Thanks

Battery calibration apps, and battery calibration period has been debunked a long time ago. It's useless Google it and you will see it was debunked by Google itself.

Do you have any other suggestions for me. Because I tried charging my battery in another phone, got it fully charged and then when put back into my phone, it was at 75%. So this to me indicates something that is wrong but on software side.

Sounds more like a hardware problem with the phone itself not the battery.

The tread is old but I've tried this with a new battery anyway until realized it's not going to work with multi-charging sources (desktop,car charger, non-OEM home charger) and multi-ROMs environment where you wipe a whole system.

If you have a multimeter, see if you can get the voltage of the battery...
My guess is the batteries are fine but your phone's charging circuitry got fried.

On the off chance though, have you tried a different ROM?
