    Hi there,

    I'm using ICS Beta 0.7 (Android 4.0.4) on my Desire. Recently, I noticed a very strange and annoying phenomenon: The battery will reach 18-19% and then suddenly jump to 0% and the phone will turn itself off. But the battery is not really empty, because I can still access 4ext Recovery afterwards - which shows "--%". I tried recalibrating the battery couple times and wiping battery stats but nothing changed. Does anyone have an idea as to why that might happen?

    TIA

    Thanks for the reply. Will that method you mentioned in the other link also work with an ICS ROM or do I have to revert all the way back to GB?

    I'm running Tiamat 2.6.38.8-cayniarb-ics-stock-042612 at the moment (which is not the same as mentioned in the ICS thread). Is there a way to check whether it supports it? Or rather, what happens, if it doesn't?

    Easy way to check. Open the Battery calibrator app. If the general tab's fields are populated, it should work. If blank, it wont.

    If you follow the oxygen guide (I linked in the other thread) you cant go far wrong.
