    Do I was running the Theory ROM last night, and couldn't get the unthrottled thing working, so went to restore back to stock... The FULL flash, it got to flashing the system.img and stuck there for a LONG time. I figured since the file is so big, that it'd take a long time, so I went to bed. I get up this morning, and well, it said that it had failed. My battery is dead, won't charge, screen won't come on unless it's plugged into the wall, which does me NO good. So, I'm stuck, needing help, not sure exactly what to do besides going to the store and getting another battery, popping it in, and trying to flash once again. Am I on the right track, or, is there something else I should do??

    Already called Verizon store, and they've got a battery on charge for me...

    Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

    Well, it's been on charge for about 5 hours, and, unfortunately, it still show's "battery low" and "cannot program." So, am I stuck buying another battery, for the charge, so I can program this thing, or....??

    Again, I do have Verizon charging a battery for me as we speak...

    If there is no operating system that is in tact fully, the battery will NOT charge while in fast boot mode. So you need someone to charge the battery to full for you with another Bionic, and buying one from the store probably won't come with a full enough charge to restore back to stock...

    Yeah, there's NO operating system. I called Verizon Store near me, and they put a battery on a charger for me, should be ready now... Guess I'm heading down there to get it!!!

    I really appreciate the help, guys, really!!

    That's what you get for messing around with a perfectly working phone, what's with all these half backed ROMS anyways, what more do you want these phones to do for you, do these ROMS make your phone cook a meal, seriously why not just leave a good thing alone, if you want to mess around with ROMS for a new phone, why not wait till the developer "hacker" gets out all the kincks from his fabulous ROM:) . Or just leave a good thing alone and enjoy your new toy, I am sure the developers of these smattering phones know what they are doing, trusting a second hand wanna be developer with you shiny new device is not real smart.

    Flaming on a dedicated and well put together team and rom really does no one any good. We buy these devices to screw with and try stuff out. There will always be hiccups at some point in time. That's why we have this community for answers and support. If you ever have any issues I would hope you dont get the same "flamed" treatment you just passed out.

    Hacking phones is why 75% of us are here, because it's fun and we enjoy it, the customization, community support, and overall atmosphere that comes along with the android community is second to none :)

    More people should think like this sensible man. Don't trample on his opinion and choice to trample on the opinion and choice of someone else. How dare you.

    People should use their phones however they see fit but don't condemn anyone for wanting to experiment. There are phones that stop experimentation, they're called iphones.
