Post [UTIL] CurrentWidget [Update] sp3dev kernel support!

Here is a simple but VERY useful tool!
A widget which shows the actual current.




Goodbye to such sayings like "My battery lasts 4-7 hours" or "about 10% per hour"

The value refreshes every 30 seconds at most!
Set the update intervall to 1 min and leave your phone for 10 minutes in standby to check the standby current.
Note: Unplug the charger!
Note 2: It seems that you need a working battery driver!

I think we can use this thread for reporting the currents of the different builds (settings, kernels, WM ROMs etc.) to find the best battery saving build/combination.
So please report your best (standby) values here!!
(with Build, Kernel, WM Rom, maybe Radio ROM)


Download:

All devices:
Search in the market for "CurrentWidget" or download the CurrentWidget_v0.16.apk from below (and place it in /andboot/androidapps folder on your storage card).

Xperia X1 aka HTC Kovsky:
  • Linux MSM/Tremere's Kernel:
    With xdandroid build download CurrentWidget_v0.16.apk
    With CM6 and other builds download CurrentWidget_all.apk
  • sp3dev's Kernel:
    Take the market version or download CurrentWidget_x1.apk and place it in /andboot/androidapps folder on your storage card

Thanks to the developer Ran Manor!!

There is also a donate version in the market

You've taken the version from the market?
I think Ran hasn't uploaded the new version yet. Wait for v0.16 or download it from above.
xdandroid support has been added in v0.16 by Ran (and me )

This data is 100% correct becouse its true data.

If phone dies after 6 hours its 100% correct data.

% per hour is also correct and valid data becouse its measured in WM.


Who can guarantee that data from this application is true. It gets data via android...the same background as battery life and status which is incorrect.

No it's not. Only the current is 100% correct.
You wanna say "4-7 hours" is correct?
You also can't say "the phone dies after 6 hours EXACTLY".. 6 hours standby? Light use? Heavy use? What means "light use" ?

It's the same reading like in Tremere's "current.sh".
You wanna call Tremere's work into question?
