I'm using  0.3.6.

Originally,  I only pulled in some key diagnostics but then in later

Is there any up-to-date document on how to proceed when recovering a faulty
battery  using recent firmware?

Should I expect any output when running batman-start? I noticed that battery
interface is suspended,  but I don't see anything else
going on.


Now I'm trying to recover a red led flashing battery. Suddenly, it went from
flashing red to nothing and I'm also getting "No battery" from
"watch-battery"
and 0 1 2 0 1 2..... from "see-bstat".
When the led was flashing red, I could get an error code of "2" from
"ec-abnormal@ .". Now I'm getting "0". I'd like to know what that 2 meant.
Where
can I get the explanation of those error codes?

I'll be testing more faulty batteries, so I'll be bothering here
periodically :)
