You could try a later build. My rockbox FM shows 100% when fully charged,
using current builds. There were some changes a bit ago to fix the battery
scaling, but I can't remember offhand when they went in to CVS. Try
setting the battery icon to show number instead of graphic, for a better
indication of what Rockbox thinks the battery charge is at.
