Subject: Flashed & battery drain
From: David Greenfield (
Date: 2004-02-10

I recently flashed my FMR (20040204 build) and for the first time in 18 months the battery drained below what was necessary to play music, while I was listening, and while the charger was plugged in.

I turned the unit off and the battery icon has bouncing dots with an indicator counting up the volts and a % next to it.

Is this an issue with the flashed Rockbox? I remember early in the flash days some sort of charging issue. Thanks for any help.
