Question about charging battery

Today, I loaded the OpenInkpotInstall20090326 firmware on my EZ Reader. I've been using LBook for a while because it uses CoolReader for HTML books, which I have because of format shifting anyway, and it does a good job. By the time I finished flashing it, the battery was below half. I plugged it in and the LED shows red as usual when I plug it in. With the other firmware, the LED shows green when it's fully charged. Does OI do the same thing??

I think it does not. It always stays red for me when I charge it, even when it's on 100 %.

It's hardware limitation. V3 charging controller is quite stupid.

Ok.. but how come it turns green with the original firmware?
So it should be possible right?

It's possible, but useless. Red LED turns off when the charging is finished.

So it *should* let you know when charging is done? Because mine stayed red, seemed like ages after it showed 100 %. Was I just too impatient?

Controller just charges battery several hours, and then stops. If you wait a bit longer, LED should turn off
