    Try calibrating the battery, but if it still broken, there's a chance you got a defective battery on your hands.

    I don't think you need root to run that app.

    That said, I don't think its a battery calibration issue. I've read similar problems with other devices which turned out to be damaged USB ports on the device. Something inside the port was bent and shorted out making the device think it was charging when it wasn't.
