OOPS Sorry, posted in wrong board...

Heya All,

interesting.. on my ZTE KIS (aka Roamer2 i believe) i too have noticed a corrupt battery charging animation while powered off.

so... that must mean the charging animation could be customized relatively easily too, any ideas how? a basic example would be fine (:

i want to try and come back to this if i work out a better place to post this, i'm a noob, soz
