Original post is

I have NOT tried it myself and so if it works do let people know.

I'm putting it in DEV section since it is recommended to be done before every new ROM installation. If the MODS think otherwise please move it to General section.

Here are the steps:

4. Press Power and choose to reboot normally.
5. When the screen goes black and the lights go out, pull out the battery before you get the M logo. It will probably still work after the M logo shows up but that's how I do it.

6. Surprise: The phone will boot up without the battery! - Mine does - every time

Note: Batterystats.bin is recreated when you see the M logo - even though the battery isn't in the phone.

Go to Step 8 if the phone booted up as described.

7. If it doesn't boot up and you see the battery with the ?
..........a) Put the battery back in (you will see 60%),
..........b) Power off the phone (press power until LED light goes out)
..........c) Power on the phone (press power until you see the M logo)
..........d) Remove battery... and watch bootanimation...

8. a) After the surprise of seeing the boot animation without a battery, you will then see the lock screen along with a "No SIM card error" and no signal.
...... Put the battery back in - the SIM card error will disappear, you will get a signal, it will show 60% full and the icon will show the battery charging.
...... Go to Step 9 if this works as planned. If it doesn't, reboot (again without the battery) and use step 8b instead of step 8a.
... b) Put the battery back in during the bootanimation, but after the haptic feedback/vibration (and the buttons along the bottom light up).
....... On a normal reboot, you can actually slide and unlock the phone when you get the vibration during the boot animation. You knew that, right?

9. Use your phone normally while you calibrate the battery

10. Let it fill it up to 100% + 15 minutes or so. When it is truly finished charging, the battery should be cool.

11. If the phone is running hot, weird things can happen. For example, you may get no signal when you put the battery back in or the battery doesn't begin charging (the status bar battery icon doesn't change). Just let the phone cool off and it should work next time.
