    Hi everyone.

    Strait to the point, my S3 is giving me extremely weird battery readings and drain.

    For the last few months my phones screen has been flickering when it gets under 25% , when its below 25% it could flicker and turn off at any point as if the battery is fully finally officially 100% dead. Then il plug it im.amd charge it, but when the phones off and charging, it will say it has 55% battery or something when in the status bar it said 14% when it died. So my status bar and "off-charging" readings are different. My battery also dies while the phones ON and charging... I just recieved a BRAND new OEM battery. I chucked it in and phone would not start so it must have been flat when i got it. But after only 5 minuits on charge it said it was at 57% which is obviously not true. I have installed many custom roms so many times and flashed so many different kernels via cwm.

    In cwm i also cannot format "preload" folder either not sure if this has anything to do with it?

    Im still confused on the battery calibration steps. Can anyone help me please. I thought a new battery would give my s3 new life but nope lol. Also iv tried different cables and charger heads no luck what so ever. The new battery also drains while chraging. Could my phone be pucked?

    If this is a Lollipop issue that i can avoid please point me to another stable aosp rom.

    Currently running blisspop 4.0 with archikernel.

    I've heard that you can calibrate modern batteries simply by charging the phone to 100%, letting it run down to 0 (or something close to 0), and then charging back to 100%. Anyone able to confirm?
