So according to Andrew Xie (@bigxie on twitter)
"The file in question is libandroid_servers.so, it is looking at a battery value that reports 10% when clearly the other reports 1% -- stupid"

So it might be possible, but its gonna take some serious reworking of the code.

Yeah, I think Fab asked JRummy if he'd give it a shot.

Moto blocked it, that's why. Don't act surprised either, again, it's moto. Any app/widget/package of any kind on 10% incremented devices just shows a prediction. Using algorithms, the dev made the product calculate around the % the batt is at. It doesn't actually get the 1% increment, because it's not possible. But, there are devs working on a fix, but I doubt they will solve it. The hope of 1% increments on a dx is in the hands of @cvpcs. He knows that 1% works in sholes, and so cm4dx will support 1% increments.

I never understood why Moto would do 10% battery increments. It just seems stupid on a device like this. Oh well.

Yea anxiously awaiting the new bionic announcement to see if it will be unlocked my intuition says NOPE
If moto unlocks the bionic, it could quite possibly be one of the greatest devices in android histpry, no joke. Other than bootloader, the only other 2 variables of it's success are battery life and batt. Temp. Its been delayed for awhile because it gets hot easily and I can only imagine that hurt the batt. Life. But hopefully they fix it, unlock it, and give it 0.00001% batt. increments lol

Not an estimate, directly reported by the system
type the following into your Terminal Emulator:

cat /sys/class/power_supply/battery/charge_counter

Here is some links i have found on this subject....im the one who gave Fab i.e Andrew Xie i.e @Bigxie
the information and the idea....looks like we will be waiting till moto releases their source,for this to work.

new link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=916629

here is the source to merge
https://github.com/Quarx2k/android_...ni/com_android_server_BatteryService.cpp#L301

and you wont be able to use aosp source cuz moto changed it

Look in the market for "circle battery widget" displays 1% idk how accurate it is but its pretty simple

I just explained how that only takes an estimate
look at earlier posts before you post

Myself, Drod and Slahyer worked on this awhile back .. and were never able to make it reality. There was just to much re-coding that would have needed to be done..

I emailed the dev who created the app. He said that it is pulling the battery level from the system, and his app does not use estimates.

I find that unlikely. Highly. Unlikely.

type the following into your Terminal Emulator:

cat /sys/class/power_supply/battery/charge_counter

This is what the app or widget looks at to get 1% increments! Its not a esitmate its accurate!

This does work...You would think someone would be able to write some code to take this number and assign it to a battery icon but I'm sure it's a lot more complex than that since it hasn't been done yet.

I just installed the circle battery widget, and yes it is giving accurate battery stats in 1% increments. Someone should really port this so we can use it in the status bar.

CVPCS, the same guy working on CM4DX had a pretty awesome and informative post about this on his website (link: http://kan.gd/qdp) While it's for D1, I think it still applies, at least a little. From what I gathered, it might be plausible, albeit difficult.
