I need help, my phone says its charging when it isnt plugged in. it says charging on both the lockscreen and in the notification bar, but in settings/battery the phone knows when it is or isnt plugged in. Also, a reboot doeant fix, but if i battery pull it works properly again until the next time i plug it in and then it gets stuck with the issue again until i battery pull again.

No idea how this happened, i was running CNA 1.3.3 with the new 4.0.4 radios and bootloader and was running fine for days until this randomly happened.

Things i have tried already that didnt work:
-full wipe and fresh install
-full wipe and flash aoko toro 22 instead of CNA
-wipe cache, dalvik
-fix permissions
-wipe battery stats
-tried several different kernels


No matter what i try it still happens unless i battery pull and starts immediately again once i plug in and wont stop unless i battery pull.

Anybody got any other ideas? or thoughts on what could cause this? any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sort of sounds like you have a damaged USB port. I mean can it be software related if you changed roms? Try flashing a different kernel.

Good luck

I thought about that too, just thought it was strange that it stops once i battery pull but not if i reboot. also, i did try several kernels as well just forgot to put that in the OP. this is killing me lol

try flashing back to 4.0.3 radio. If you flashed wiping everything you might have to flash your phone back to stock unrooted and all and start over

http://code.google.c...&sort=&id=23789When that happened to me, my phone wouldn't charge in addition to showing charge symbol while unplugged. Also, nandroids would not restore. I had to reflash factory img/relock to correct, ok since then. Found issue 23789, maybe this helps?
