    Exclamation Impossible Droid 3 Brick

    Hey Droid Forums,
    I need help from anyone that can out there because I've gotten myself into the worst case cenario and my phone is beyond retarded. I tried to facory reset my phone after flashing the latest steel rom and I bricked my phone. Not only that but when I got the chance to connect my phone to my computer it says "usb not recognized" not only this but its also suck in AP fastboot telling me that the battery is to low to program anything on the phone. I let the phone charge for a whole day using the wall charger not the usb charger and it still says that my phone's battery is to low. To add to all of this misfortunet turn of events my phone's headphone jack also stopped working after an update and it crashes pretty often. Personally I'd love to fix my phone but I want to smash it over the concrete floor because it's causeing sooooo many problems that I dont believe anyone can solve it. I'd appreciate the help from anyone that can help me out thanks!!

    You cant charge a brick. You'll need to find an alternative way to charge your battery.

    You need to buy a new battery on amazon or buy a battery charger from amazon. Don't freak out here... just get a new battery or if you have a friend with a d3 use their battery or their phone to charge your battery.

    This is why it is always good to do any flashing with at least 80-90% battery...

    Try this:

    How/why to make your own Motorola "Factory Cable"

    It involves making a Motorola "factory" cable. It allows you to flash WITHOUT a battery! Made one myself and have flashed many D1's with it. Users in the thread have reported success with different devices in your same situation.

    Another method, which is a bit more dangerous, is outlined here. Im sure there's a better tutorial. It involves hooking up bare wires from charger to "+" and "-"of your battery.

    You may not be able to, that sounds an awful lot like a (hardware) problem with the phone's USB controller. On a long shot, check and make sure there isn't any lint or debris inside the phone's micro-usb port.

    Reinstall the Motorola drivers for your PC? Use a rear USB port on the computer?

    Drivers can be found here 32bit and 64 bit:

    OK so I got the USB to be recognized it was the battery all along after i swapped for a fully charged one. Now I unbricked it but it still has tons of problems with slow response time laggy camera and most of all the headphone jack still doesnt work. So on to that problem now

    My best advice would be to remove all traces of root and send it to Motorola, not Verizon, for warranty repair. Verizon will stick you for the $100 deductible. Sending it to Motorola will cost you about $6 USPS small flat rate box.

    Left side of page, check unit warranty, then go from there...
