    Well, it would be more accurate to say they're capping the charging capacity. I still refuse to believe that a battery with an anode-to-cathode short will be any safer at 50% charge than it would at 100%... a short is a short is a short.

    You really want them to rush? I'd like them well tested.... And a guarantee not to be capped at 60% capacity

    They are capping the phones in Korea as far I understand to make people hand in their phones. That is not the fix.

    Good. Like I said I would want a guarantee from THEM about that. If they do it here no way to only push it to old model
