Request for work on Charging
As most of you know, we have had an issue with charging all nand flashed Android devices, put simply, unlike windows mobile, we cannot charge while the device is powered down.
This has caused quite a few problems for users who are unaware of this, there are many posts related to dead batteries, non-booting devices etc, and although there are steps we can take to avoid this, it is perhaps a more important issue than GPS or Camera.
This is in no way disrespect to those working on these aspects, I have nothing but admiration for the way you guys have improved upon the usability and functionality of our beloved gadgets.
However I feel that we also need to address this issue, it is, for many, a major stumbling block, which causes many to return to Windows mobile, with a sense of dissatisfaction for all that has been achieved.
Much as I'd love to work on this, my skills are not in this field, and have no idea where to start looking, although I suspect it's Kernel based, since it affects all builds.
So what I'm asking for is for those with more knowledge than me, to start throwing a few ideas around, see what we can come up with.
