    can't get phone to charge

    I'm stuck in a low battery soft brick

    I can't get the phone to charge

    I tried sbf flashboot

    I just get a battery on the screen with a question mark in it

    I can't get it to charge.

    Someone please please help me.

    I need to charge my phone so I can try to get into recovery.


    Is there anyway to get into clockwork recovery so i can flash a backup?


    I have been stuck for hours

    Ahhh, the joys of a sealed battery. You can get a factory cable, which should work. Outside of that, nothing that won't obviously and completely void the warranty.

    I came across a unique technique today that actually works, posted by another member.

    2. Plug in the wall charger (not usb)

    3. Use vol down to highlight the SBF Flash Option

    4. Use vol up to select it

    5. Press and hold the power button for about 3 seconds then release.

    Now the phone should power down completely after a couple seconds and begin charging (you should see the battery charging icon). If it doesn't work the first time just keep trying, took me a couple tries before it started charging but it worked. It also helps to boot into the stock recovery and do a factory reset first. It works though.
