    Why are you turning the device off? USB won't charge if the battery is already too low.

    Plug it into usb on your desktop or laptop, when menu opens, what mode are you in? PC,charge only,USB mass storage?

    The phone needs to be on to charge...

    If it's dead and you use an AC charger, it will turn on when it has enough charge.
    If it's dead and you use USB it will NOT charge.

    I just powered my phone OFF waited one minute and plugged into wall charger. Got M logo then giant green battery with percentage displayed and it said charging. When I unplugged it I booted into cwm.
