Has anyone noticed that charging is slower with 4.4.4 ?

Has anyone figured a way to peek into the rom to find out where the charging rate is set?

You didn't want to root did you?

If you do then doomkernel (and the pimped port for cm/aosp based ROMs) has fastcharge if you want to risk burning out a usb port or the charger

I wanted to flash candy rom AOSP but i have relocked my bl. I am rooted on 108 at the moment. Can i flash candy rom and then flash dual recovery from nut and be fine? or do i need to unlock bl first.

As far as I am concerned flashing Candy ROM needs changing kernel, and you won't be able to do this without an unlocked bootloader.

i have the same curious question too. Last night i was charging via dock. And boy that was slow! In 4.4.2 it was way faster with the DK30. Don't know why, need more charging cycle to conclude.

off topic
Candy will need an unlocked BL and no [NUT]'s recovery won't work as it is for Sony based ROMs

Battery Full .108 rooted/locked_bl feels slower than non-rooted
I noticed that the charge to reach the green led needs much more time than when it wasn't rooted and not unlocked and locked back.

I thought charge rates were dependent on the charging block itself? Also if it isn't dependent on just the charger itself, how warm is your phone when it's charging? Warmer phones take longer to charge because if it is being warm before charging commences, that means the battery is being worked hard from drainage.

I did a couple measurements by downgrading to 4.4.3

i kept the phone cool with a fan

I didn't see significant difference in charge rates... something like 10% difference, unimportant
