Hi everyone. I've been looking around the forums and haven't really been able to find a solution to this odd problem of mine.
I've been running nightly builds of Cyanogen and everything was going great until yesterday afternoon. My battery was running kind of low (30% or so) when Rom Manager notified me of a new nightly build available for download. I went ahead and plugged in my phone via usb, using a friends USB cable he got from radio shack and let the phone charge while the download finished.
Few minutes later I turned on the phone and everything locked up, so I pressed the button again to turn off the screen hoping to refresh everything. The screen went black, while the capacitive buttons stayed lit.
The phone remained in this state until it rebooted and hung on the MOTO splash screen. I removed the battery, rebooted again and made it into the Cyanogen Splash screen and everything was going fine until it froze and hung on that splash screen as well.
I removed the battery and attempted to reboot multiple times, often waiting 10-15 minutes with no success. Someone on forums elsewhere suggested wiping my sd card and tossing Cyanogen and Gapps to install via recovery.
I wasn't thrilled with this idea but I saved everything important on my SD card and proceeded to wipe it. Again, no success.
It had also been suggested to use SBF to install 2.0.1 of Android OS.
My problem is that my phone will not turn on at all if not plugged into an outlet. However, as soon as my phone is plugged in my screen boots into the MOTO splash and hangs there indefinitely. The white light on the side of the mini USB port that indicates its charging does not light up at all.
I'm under the impression that it isn't charging when plugged in. I've tried booting intro recovery with no success. I've managed to boot into the bootloader (holding the up on the dpad) consistently but it always tells me the battery is too low the program.
Prior to this I was not able to get any indicator that the phone was charging via USB either, however this morning the white light indicator went on so I will proceed to leave it plugged in for a few hours and hope for the best.
*edit. When the phone is plugged via usb it charges for a while until the Phone turns itself on and boots into the MOTO splash until it hangs. Once it hits the MOTO splash the charge indicator goes away. :/
That beingn said, I'm out of ideas. Any suggestions? I'm not too worried that I've bricked my phone as I'm generally told is pretty impossible to do so unless something goes wrong using RSD Lite. None the less I'm pretty confused as to what to do next. Really need to get my phone working again.
Appreciate any help and input from everyone. Thanks.
