When I'm using my hacky backlight modulation program which toggles screen off and on fast enough to simulate ultra-dim brightness Android sometimes gets wrong info about battery charge (it sees 0% 0V sometimes for a short period) and starts shutdown unexpectedly for me.

How to turn off that shutdown on low battery?

Expecting something like:

  • Changing settings to forbid this behaviour
  • Temporarily locking battery reporting to some constant
  • Temporarily making it think that it is charging

Root access is present.

Update: After updating from android 2.1 to android 2.3 it does not shut down anymore when I run that program.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Please note that this fast shutdown is there for two purposes - to prevent data corruption and to prevent battery damage, so it's highly unlikely you can do anything to prevent it. – sharptooth Jan 12 '12 at 15:31
AFAIK battery itself shuts down (hard, without saving anything) if it is too low. And "data corruption" should be similar to surprise battery removal. – Vi0 Jan 12 '12 at 19:00
