    coding for lg vx8800 (venus) issues...

    Hey all!

    I'm new to coding for phones, but I picked this one up and now I wanna hack the hell out of it! Saddly.. I'm having issues. The phone's interface is made in flash so I figured I could replace some of it with my own stuff.

    First task - Make a flash wallpaper that displays the state of the battery. Sounded easy... first I did this for flash lite 2.1 which works great when previewed in device central:

    PHP Code:
    checkBattery();
    vibrate true;
    function 
    checkBattery(){
        
    battLevel fscommand2("GetBatteryLevel");
        
    maxBattLevel fscommand2("GetMaxBatteryLevel");
        
    percent Math.floor(battLevel/maxBattLevel*100);
        
    battCounter.text percent "%";
        
    battStats.text "current level: " battLevel "\rtotal level: " maxBattLevel;
        
        
    //goto 75%
        
    if(percent <= 75 && percent 50){
            
    battery.gotoAndStop(2);
        }
        
    //goto 50%
        
    if(percent <= 50 && percent 25){
            
    battery.gotoAndStop(3);
        }
        
    //goto 25%
        
    if(percent <= 25 && percent 5){
            
    battery.gotoAndStop(4);
        }
        
    //goto 5%
        
    if(percent <= 5){
            
    battery.gotoAndStop(5);
            
            if(
    vibrate){
                
    status fscommand2("StartVibrate"200010002);
            }
            
    vibrate false;
        }
    }
    //change to 60
    checkTimer setInterval(this"checkBattery"10000); 
    displays the battery state, if it's about to die it vibrates twice (ironic i know). No Go. It just kept saying 100% battery... so I tried coding in flash lite 1.1 even though the phone supports 2.1 because I ran out of ideas:

    PHP Code:
    battLevel fscommand2("GetBatteryLevel");
    maxBattLevel fscommand2("GetMaxBatteryLevel");
    percent Math.floor(battLevel/maxBattLevel*100);
    battCounter percent;

    //goto 75%
    if(percent <= 75 && percent 50){
        
    tellTarget("battery"){
            
    gotoAndStop(2);
        }
    }
    //goto 50%
    if(percent <= 50 && percent 25){
        
    tellTarget("battery"){
            
    gotoAndStop(3);
        }
    }
    //goto 25%
    if(percent <= 25 && percent 5){
        
    tellTarget("battery"){
            
    gotoAndStop(4);
        }
    }
    //goto 5%
    if(percent <= 5){
        
    tellTarget("battery"){
            
    gotoAndStop(5);
        }
        
        if(
    vibrate){
            
    status fscommand2("StartVibrate"200010002);
        }
        
    vibrate false;

    still no go. both preview fine, neither work on the phone... it traces out the max battery as 4 and the current batter as 4 no matter what...

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    ps I forgot to mention, I've replaced one of the default swf wallpapers with my swf file using BitPim. I've also tried replacing the tipcalculator to the same ends
