    Charging while in bootloader

    My battery died while flashing the sbf file. I was under the impression while the phone was plugged into usb port it was charging, guess not. I unplugged and plugged it into an outlet but cannot tell if it's charging. So does anyone know if charging works while phone is in bootloader? and if not what do I do?

    Thanks in advance,

    D

    I don't believe the phone charges while you're in the bootloader. I had that happen to me once. I ended up having to go to Verizon and buy a battery, flash sbf, then charge my old battery like normal

    This is what I did with the help of lzord at XDA Forums.

    cut a usb cable and put the red and black wires on the positive and negative terminals of the battery, put it back in the phone, then flash. Then you can charge.

    And this worked like a charm. I charged it for an hour and it gave it a full charge and I was able to flash

    I know this post is over a year old but I searched EVERYWHERE online to find some helpful information on how to charge while in the bootloader, aside from BUYING a new battery. This post was extremely helpful and I just wanted to say thank you and make this available to anyone else whose battery happened to die *during* a flash!

    like bluskyline21 said, even though this is a year old, it saved me! My DX's batt died this morning mid flash and having a spare batt isnt really helpful if its dead as well. I had been considering this for about 2 hours but couldnt find enough data to take the edge off my nerves about it.

    Guess I should consider investing in a spare battery charger for future events...hmm...

    My deepest thanks to you

    Just thought I would share a moment of suspense. I had Liquid 3.0 installed on an old phone, and it wouldn't boot, so I went into sbf with about 5% battery left. I can't believe it made it! Not for the faint of heart.
