So I thing, don´t make any crazy test with battery callibration. This problem is only with alternative ROMs

No you did not understand.

"Original" roms are made by Sony-Ericsson itself - It is made so to perfectly fit hardware, including battery specifications. But, most important, stock roms re-installation wipes and resets perfectly battery stats, that's why you get a ready-to-go battery.

Problem is not with alternative roms, but with bad manual wiping : on a stock rom, you can let your battery to 15% for instance, wipe battery stats manually, and you'll get into same troubles as any other custom rom.

People should be aware that it is NOT dangerous for battery (as the stats are only done to help Android), but it is not intented for manual wipe whenever we want, especially when battery does not show 100% within Android.

Whatever it happens, flashing stock rom from SEUS or PC Companion does restore everything - so don't complain, it's not dangerous but boring to go back to stock

Indeed your battery seems to be a problem.

Be careful as I have heard and read of old (and some new) batteries exploding (not specifically X10's). Good luck!

This made the battery percentage drop down to 88% and when repeating this procedure a couple of times it would rise back to 100%, thus supposedly calibrating the battery. This worked to some and to others not. Now that we have xRecovery, I thought I'd try this in conjuction with the battery stats wipe option and whaddayaknow, I've got better battery life now. Now I can go through a whole day with heavy usage and still have some battery left for the phone to survive through night with data and syncing on. So I thought I'd share this with you guys to try out and report too.

ROOT IS REQUIRED!

STEPS:
1. Download and install xRecovery from here.
2. Charge your phone to 100%
3. Turn off the phone and boot into recovery
4. In recovery, go to Advanced options --> Wipe Battery Stats --> Yes
5. Take the battery off
6. Insert the charger chord
7. Put the battery back and wait for the phone to boot
8. Once the phone boots up, you will notice that the battery percentage is around 88% instead of 100%
9. Charge the phone back to 100%
10. Repeat 4-5 times, seems to be the sweet spot
11. Enjoy your hopefully better battery life and report!

REMEMBER THAT I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOUR PHONE BLOWS UP ETC. AFTER THIS!


I tried this option and I can boldly say that really significantly improve the battery life. THANKS for the advice. :)

In the process of doing this, but didn't run down to 88%. It went to 97% from 100% after restarting. Recharged till 100% and in the 4th cycle now.

Will post soon.

Thanks for the great tip, battery life was a pain in the a** :)
