    Well, I let my Atrix die out (I always like to get it to 0% before I recharge) and connected it to the charger. After it hit 5% I attempted to turn it on but it gets stuck on the red M (Motorola Symbol), and some times it goes to the ATT "Rethink possible" logo, but still ends up freezing on this. I have already called for a replacement, but I was wondering if I could unroot the phone if its stuck on this "red M" stage. I have to send this broken phone in so I want to unroot it before I do because having it rooted voids my warranty.

    Is there a way to unroot it this phone if it is stuck on the red M symbol?

    Is there a term for the phone being stuck on the red M? Softbrick?

    +1 -- just let it charge. As soon as it gets enough juice, it should boot up fine. :)

    Discharging your Lithium Ion battery to 0% and recharging it back to full is actually bad for your battery.

    @first 2 posts...I did boot it to 100%, I am still able to see the battery image when it's off. It got up to 100% in the morning and I am still having the same problem. It's not booting up.

    If I send mail this phone back to ATT, will they be able to see that I rooted it?

    @3rd post....Really, I thought it's always better to let your battery run out of energy first...

    Can you tell me how it is bad? D:

    With the old nickel based batteries, this use to be the case because there was a memory effect where the battery would not recharge fully. Lithium Ion batteries don't have this effect. In fact, Lithium Ion batteries preferred to be partially charged. That's why when you buy a new phone and put the battery in, the battery is only charged 40%. That is the optimum storing capacity to prevent shortening the battery's life.

    Check out this link, How to prolong lithium-based batteries; Battery University, that I quoted from. Very informative!!
