Firstly it is *** faulty*** and sold as is: 

Appears there is something with the hardware at fault. When you power off, sometimes it just reboots. Does it intermittently. When it's on, it runs perfect and that's everything. Currently running PFFitech 1.05, ICS 4.0.4 ( A very nice rom ) 

Connects fine via USB whether it be by MTP or mass storage. Download and Recovery mode work fine. When it's off and charging, and you disconnect the cable, the battery charging icon carries on.. Slight blemish by the plastic in between the camera and flash. Screen is excellent condition. 

$450 or ONO

You sure its hardware? I had a ROM that did that at one stage, reloaded everything and it went away. Got an old backup you could run for a while? Be a shame to give it away at $350.

I think it is, because I flashed the stock firmware then back to custom, then back to stock and it's still exhibiting the same behaviour. I have a feeling it's something to do with the usb port and maybe a pin alignment is not right. When it's off and charging, and you remove the charger, the battery icon remains, although it seems to display just the current charging level.

Was going to open it up and have a nosey at the usb connector but my poly sized fingers may muck things up!

I guess you have tried cleaning the USB with contact cleaner or similar? Artists brush dipped in Isopropyl or meths? Just in case there is a bit of conductive crap stuck up there?

Okay, this S2 and my other S2 (fully functional also in excellent condition, dual booting 2 ICS Roms via Siyah Kernel)

Both together $850. Can return both to stock (but why go from a Merc to a Skoda?) if you wish.

Cheers
