HTC Desire Battery Calibration

Update: You may want to read this (Specially the bump charging part) before you move forward. My HTC Desire's charge would drop to 93%, 91% or 90% very quickly after removing from the AC charger. I came to this post on that help me fixed the problem.  Basically all you have to do is: Charge your phone until the notification led is green. Disconnect the charger. Power off the phone. Reconnect the charger. Charge until the notification led is green. Disconnect the charger. Power on the phone. Power off the phone again, once its powered on completely. Reconnect the charger until the notification led is green.  Disconnect the charger power it on and use it.

Gmote in 64 bit Ubuntu

Gmote is an Android Remote. I was having problem running the Ubuntu client on my 64 bit Lucid Lynx. Though the application was very easy to start, just run a script, it was not working. It was giving error like "Can't obtain static method fromNative from class com.sun.jna.Native" and "There was an error running the gmote server, Please visit for more information". The solution was to fix the script by changing the java path. From, java -classpath bin:lib/jna.jar:lib/slf4j-api-1.5.3.jar:lib/swing-worker-1.2.jar org.gmote.server.GmoteServerUiLinux & to: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java -classpath bin:lib/jna.jar:lib/slf4j-api-1.5.3.jar:lib/swing-worker-1.2.jar org.gmote.server.GmoteServerUiLinux & where, /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java happens to be my 64 bit java.
