I've have a zerolemon 7500mAh extended battery. I need to run it completely flat every month to help keep it correctly calibrated. this isn't that easy when 5% on this battery is closer to 15% on the standard one. needing to have it useable makes things difficult, so I'm wondering if there are any mods to files I can make to stop the phone entering power saving mode at 5% and also anything that will let me run past 1% on kitkat..

the later has a module in xposed, but it doesn't cover kitkat.

I'm rooted and happy to do it myself if something doesn't already exist for it..

Are you sure that you need to run it completely flat? The technology inside the battery gets damaged when you run it flat. The normal battery gets callibrated by charging it to 100% pulling the battery out and then charge it again till 100%.

Lion battery's get damaged by 3 things:

- Heat
- Age
- Discharging to 0%.

googled again just now and discovered an app called rootdim mentioned elsewhere. it's primary purpose is dimming but it raises the screen light value just as well.. check http://play.google.com/store/apps/de...pruss.superdim for details...
