Nice addition to the options.

Can you make it multi-rom capable? To work in stock and cm7 also would be perfect.

It's only me or when the phone is in charge through pc usb it tends to be more hot?

Nice work.

PS: Nice to see Portuguese people also in here

I need one more tester. PM me. Preferably someone running the SetiroN kernel, because that's what I've been using as my base.

I hope this would solve my problem that I have when using car charger and having GPS navigation on with max brightness and 3g data on. In this case battery isn't charging at all, more like staying at same level or very slowly discharging.

If your phone registers the source as AC this app wont do anything.
If the phone registers your charger as USB, app will allow you to force to AC resulting in faster charge.

That's the exact scenario that prompted me to develop these patches. So most likely your charger is being detected as USB and this should help.

Almost completely done with testing. Just need to confirm that the current draws are correct for each mode and I will be releasing the patch and updated widget.

As it stands right now it will work like this:

Auto: Default behavior
Force AC: AC power detected, no data (usb transfers disabled, no adb etc)
Force USB: USB power detected, no data (same as above, don't want your phone to try to transfer when slow charging from AC, also provides security)
