I have a Droid X, and recently I flashed CM4DX to it. Soon after, when discharging my phone to calibrate, I noticed that the battery would jump from 17% all the way down to 4%. I thought it was odd but I kind of ignored it. But ever since then, always when it gets to 17%, it does that, no matter how many times I calibrate. I thought it might be from flashing 2nd-init recovery, but I don't know why that would make a difference and I think it was jumping before I flashed CWM. Does anyone have any ideas why it may be doing this or how to fix it?

I am not really sure what causes it, but it is a 2nd-init related issue. My battery drops from 9% to 4% instantly no matter what 2nd-init ROM I am on. I was on Shuji and DSX for a while and did not have the problem, went back to MIUI and the battery started dropping from 9-4 again.

U should try this
1. Charge until 100%
2. Remove backdoor
4. Shut it down until u c battery indicator 100%
5. Remove the battery while u charge it...your Dx will reboot and show battery indicator with question mark
6. Put back battery and wait until it go up to 100%
7. Reboot and you're done
Don't forget to wipe battery stat

I tried this way while on CM4GB and it was a no go. You can't charge it while it's off so as soon as you turn it off while the charger is still plugged in, it reboots on its own.

It works just fine on CM4DX-GB, just remove the battery after you feel the first vibration (During the Motorola logo). It boots into and the ROM reports 60% battery - put the battery back in and let it charge until it gets to 100%.

I just tried it. I'm on MIUI on Froyo Kernal. I tried pulling battery, phone booted normally, then, when I put it back it, it said charging, jumped from 20 to 60 to 100. My battery still jumped from 17% to 4%. It did do it when I was on cm4dx too, but I was also on Froyo kernal for that.

I've had this problem on 2nd init rom's as well, but mine goes from 20 something down to 15% (when i had 1% i knew exactly what it jumped from)

just learned to live with it but keeping hope it gets fixed some day
