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.
