This is a good one. Hope you guys all have your thinking caps on!
Here's the whole story so everyone knows what went down:
A couple of months ago I had a few issues trying to go from Liberty 2.0 to Liberty GB. Attempted to sbf back to froyo and continuously got the "phone did not reenumerate" and flashing always failed. I ended up being able to restore to stock rom and flashing froyo via black hat's 2 step process with success and got Liberty GB installed.
Enter this morning. Upon reading there was a CM7 available, I immediately downloaded and read up on the instructions for installation. Rather than attempting to do so without rolling back to froyo, I tried to use black hat's method to get myself to froyo .340 (given that sbf still won't succeed). Part 1 would install, but part 2 would produce an error. I attempted to restore back to my stock restore point and that would end in an error also. I restored again, but this time back to Liberty .09 so my phone would work while I copied files. I got back in to recovery and wiped data and cache and tried to load the CM7 zip. It also failed. Next came the boot loop.
Last time I had some problems getting a ROM to load and I was stuck at a boot screen, I was informed to let the phone die and plug it up, wait for a while then I could get to bootstrap recovery. That time it did the trick. This time, no dice. I tried it again, but this seems to have thrown a wrench into things.
Here's what I can do:
- Power up into bootloader. I can't do anything in bootloader. it says "battery low" and won't allow me to do anything. Phone has been charging most of the day since I let it die, but it won't charge.
- Boot into factory recovery. I've tried to load .zips from here, but they won't authorize so this proves to be a waste.
I've let the phone stay plugged into the wall charger while in bootloader, factory recovery, and doing the boot loop but I still can't get it to charge enough for bootloader to allow flashing... this is all assuming I can get sbf to actually work.
My plan is to call a buddy with a DX that has a charged battery and see if putting his battery in my now bricked phone will allow me to attempt an sbf back to froyo. Any suggestions or help would be very much appreciated!!
