I get asked all the time the proper way to calibrate a battery; so, here's a proper guide for you guys to use to do so and save some post space

How to: Calibrate a Battery correctly on the CDMA Hero.
  1. Charge the phone to 100%
  2. Boot the phone into recovery.
  3. Wipe battery stats
  4. Power phone on, and unplug your fully charged phone
  5. Use your phone until the battery dies. Completly. You want to use it until the phone automaticaly powers off due to low battery
  6. Recharge phone
  7. Repeat the Charging/Killing proccess about 2-3 times
  8. Your battery is callibrated!

Hope this helps cut some questions down!!!

Afraid to let my phone die completely like that. 3x I've had my sdcard need a reformat after the battery died. Only have let the battery die about 5x.

Really?

I recalibrate after every new rom or update to base rom.

Not needed, but I'm weird.

Never hurt my sdcard. Had this phone over a year and a half now.

I've got a transcend 8g class 6 right now and it got messed up just this weekend letting the battery die. It did it the other 2 times on an old card then eventually went tits up not long after that. Needles to say 3 of 5 isn't a good ratio so I'll not be letting the batt die on my phone any time soon.
