Annoying messages regarding battery level

I'm starting to get really annoyed by those messages that tell me the phone is fully charged or low on battery. Especially the low battery ones, as they prevent me using the video player (which is awesome in all other aspects).

Would it be possible to remove these messages, and disable the shutdown of the video player when battery is low in a custom ROM without exchanging the apps themselves? Is the source for the apps available or is it just the main firmware that is opensourced?

They aren't present in later firmwares, I think they killed them in the jmx firmwares, definitely not there in jm5.

Now you get a new indicator up the top to show its fully charged.

The popup complaint is over the battery being fully charged, not low.

Well either way it still does it in JM5 when the battery is full :)

I don't get any popups when the battery is full in jm5.

All I get is a new notification in the bar at the top.

I have no idea about the low battery one, never let it get that low I guess..

No it's not, read the OP again :) It specifically says "especially the low battery ones" :D

Though I have to say those popups annoy me (slightly) less than the inability to run ie. Camera under certain battery level. It should be my decision if I want to risk it and run the app anyway.

To be technical, it specifically says both high and low. Re-read the first sentence. :D

I actually appreciate low battery warning popups; they remind me that I'm low when I might not be paying attention.

I do not appreciate the extremely annoying "Your battery is fully charge, disconnect from charger" messages that make a loud noise in the middle of the night when I plug the phone in next to the bed. I don't really care for them in other situations as well.

I guess we all see what we want to see when reading posts.

Yeah, that's great, but don't stop me using features because of it. Who do Samsung think they are, Apple?

Exactly this. If I want to take a photo with my last 2% of battery, I should be able to do so.

Yes!

Paul twittered last week that he was gonna fix that problem too...seems he's got a few big ones to address with the SGS.

Actually, I agree the disconnect messages are annoying, but so are blings for email and such.

Because in JMx though, it is a notification, I set notification volume to full, and notification tone to silent. Then I set a tone in messaging manually (so emails don't make a sound, and random notifications, but SMS's do).

Haven't really noticed if this works, but it probably will (at least for fully charged).

sigh, please google about the best way to maintain a decent battery-life, it's not without reason why they're warning you;

Below 7% battery, damage will/could occur along with the longer terms heat of above 25C would(from your pockets)

ALL of my phones, and not talking about the calculators ones, were giving troubles when on low battery, making apps to stop working especially the more demanding ones like the camera of videoplayer

Point taken, BUT, it still should be MY decision on if I want to damage my battery or not. Here's the scenario, which has happened to me recently, and even Paul twittered it happened to him last week: It's a beautiful sunset, your SGS is your only phone, and you really want to get a picture of it. Open the camera, and it won't let you because your juice is too low. If there's still enough juice in the phone, let me take the picture, damn it! LOL. If it means I have to get a new battery sooner or later, I'd still opt to capture the beautiful picture. Batteries are pretty cheap to replace...
