Hardware: Ipod Mini
Rockbox V: 3.2

When the Ipod Mini is plugged into the charging unit the proper battery icon is not displayed.

More Details:
A lower battery meter reading will display instead. I checked the System Debug Battery information during this time, and it showed as "charger absent". Other battery information readings such as "battery level" and "est. remain" seemed to be inaccurate during this time aswell. However, the Ipod Mini did still recharge, although not as efficiently or completely as it did with the Apple Ipod OS.

I could be wrong as I am not a programmer, but I think part of the problem stems from the Rockbox OS not recognizing the Power-Related Tags (%bp and %bc) in the .wps files.
This task depends upon

Could you try it with todays build? 3.2 is quite of out date by now, particularly with all the USB changes that have gone in.

That worked. I apologize, Im new to Rockbox and thought that the automatic build had the latest release. Thank you!
