What is offline Charging? I have seen that some ROMs do not support offline charging. If it means that you can not charge your phone when it is switched off,
then how would one charge his phone if its battery is completely drained?

Offline charging means that you are able to charge your phone even if it is switched off. Without offline charging enabled, when your phone is off and you charge it, it will turn on again. For example, in the stock rom, when your phone is off and you charge it, you will only see the battery meter and the phone did not turn on

No offline charging = Can charge your phone, but phone will be turned on (can receive calls and messages etc)

Offline charging enabled= Can charge your phone, when it is off and cannot receive calls messages)

Either way, you will still be able to charge your battery

Yes, but with offline charging, it will cause the phone to boot up again

So let me see if I understood correctly. If there is no offline charging when I plug in the phone it will boot up? If I have offline charging then it will remain off and show the battery meter(or nothing at all)?

So you confirm I can always charge my battery even if the phone switched off because it was completely drained?
This is the only thing I'm warried and which is keeping me from flashing a new ICS ROM.

It's not a problem if it boots up again. I can always put it in airplane mode when charging during the night... Right?
