OK. My wife has a Bionic too. She's coming back home from out of town today. I'll use her phone to charge the battery, then try again.
I got it all fixed. Tried out the ICS leak, remembered how much I hate Blur... and ended up putting Eclipse 3.0 on it. I'd love to use ICS, but I can't seem to find anything that's good, that everything works. OH well. At least my phone works.
Thanks for the offer of help. Its amazing how much a difference a charged battery can make,.
