    So I got these two extended life batteries off of amazon with an external charger.  The batteries work GREAT.  I am getting 24-36 hours of regular use out each one, only problem is they have to be charged outside the phone.  When booting, or plugging in a charger, I get the old "non-supported battery, see owners manual".  But they do actually work, just no charging from the built-in charger. 

    Is there any way around that?  Phone is rooted, I'm not afraid of changing any configuration files there may be that could override that check.  Any ideas?

    Thanks, I was afraid of that, but I thought I'd ask anyway.  They are still worth it.

    Have you tried turning the phone off and then plugging the charger in?  I charged my proclaim battery in my centura that way. Eventually the battery symbol with the triangle thingie went away and the screen would just light up and turn back off repeatedly but it did charge the battery.

    There is a flag in the kernel that can be changed to make these batteries work.  I'm not sure if a hacked kernel that does this exists for the illusion, but i have done this on the Samsung i500.  Look for custom kernels and you may get lucky and find one with the non-supported battery hack.
