    Ok sorry I didn't see this one amid all the ICS chatter. No the phone will not boot without a battery.

    First let's try to get you into the phone...Put everything back together(obviously). Try to boot into HBOOT. Hold power and volume down. If this works, half the battle is done. If you have a "Recovery" option, Select it(use vol up/down to change selection and power to activate). Report back what you see.

    If this doesn't work, also report back. The previous owner may have had clockworkmod recovery on the phone and that has known issues with a depleted battery.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.

    Nope, holding volume down button and power button doesn't cause the phone to do anything.

    Hmmmm.. When you plug the phone in, does the light go orange for a few seconds then turn off?

    Sometimes it shows orange then shuts off, sometimes it stays solid orange. I've left it to charge overnight and it eventually changed green.
