It seems to do this with every build I have used. After I am done listening to my iPod at night I let it turn itself off and usually late afternoon of the next day I sync and charge it. When my battery gets around 30-40% or lower and I press a button to load it back up from its "deep sleep" mode it will display a bad/low battery image like this:
The thing is that the battery is ok and still has plenty of juice because all I have to do is reset it with the button combination and it works just fine for several hours.
Also this may be related or it may be showing some kind of problem with my battery. When my iPod is fully charged and plugged into the wall outlet it shows 100% battery with 4hr 49min. Is this normal for rockbox? I have seen others go like 7 or 8 hours running rockbox and it's even on the rockbox site.

Reason for closing: Rejected
Additional comments about closing: This is a bug in Apple's bootloader, before the Rockbox code is even executed. It doesn't happen in normal iPod use so much because deep sleep (i.e. power off) doesn't happen so often then.
