    I'm currently on 5.1, but want to flash 5.3. Has anyone done 5.3 directly over 5.1 with no wipe? I really don't feel like setting it all back up... (feeling rather lazy if you can't tell )

    You need to hard-wire your battery to a USB port via a chopped off USB cable, unless a proper external charger is at your disposal. Or a friend with a D3.
    To hard-wire it, chop off a USB cable just before the end device (DO NOT use your Moto cable for this, an old mouse cable, camera cable, etc. will do) and then expose the 4 wires. There will be a red and black inside, cut the others an inch or so shorter than these two. Expose 1/2" of each the red and black and fold them over themselves to double the thickness. Remove your battery and insert the red into the + and black into the -. I taped my in place for security to prevent a loose connection. NOW, you can plug it into the USB port. Connect the battery securely first.

    The battery is, IIRC, ~1500mAh and the USB port puts out .5A, so charge it for an absolute MAX of 3 hours. I would do one, then pop it into the phone to finish charging if possible. Just keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't get overly warm. This is a riskier way to charge since it's directly wired to power, but when you're bricked, it does work.

    You SHOULD be able to charge the phone even if its bricked, but that only goes to a certain point. Depends on what part was flashing when your power died. If you died, say, during SYSTEM, your fine. But if plugging into an AC outlet doesnt start charging it after a few minutes, then your going to have to try redsox's method. Trust me, it will work, but only use as a last ditch effort.

    Its advisable to wipe 1st, otherwise you may not be able to utilize any of the improvements that Chevy has done to the system.

    Also when you wipe, your less likely to experience various issues/corruptions that may happen otherwise.

    Ah, you got to it before I did! But yes, always do a wipe first. You never know WHAT I changed.

    When you "mount SD card" it will actually mount both (MOT and SD) at the same time.
