This is not really important, but I'd sometimes like to know what the current battery status is while charging is underway (and I'd also like the battery charging animation on the task bar to reflect this) without having to pull the power lead out and wait for the apm output to change.
Looking at the taskbar icon on OZ 3.5.1, I notice that when you plug the power in, it indicates that it's charging by running through a little animation (not sure how many steps) which makes it appear that the battery is being charged from 0% (so the animation starts at 0% and works its way up to 100% then starts again, etc.).
On my Sony-Ericsson T610 the charging icon starts the animation at the current battery level and then animates up to 100%; as the battery is charged the start point moves up.
Now I'm pretty sure this used to be done for OZ, but no longer.
I was just wondering whether this is due to the apm output changing (?), or a change in the battery icon code.
So, could someone post the output of 'cat /proc/apm' with external power applied, please (I don't have a charger with me)?
Also, if anyone with a different ROM actually gets the behaviour I'm wanting could they post too and let me know
My 'cat /proc/apm', with no external power, is showing:
1.14 1.2 0x02 0x00 0x00 0x01 98% -1 ?
