    While trying to move from SPRecovery recovery to clockwork I managed to erase the recovery altogether. After erasing the recovery, I left the phone for a few hours alone on the charger to come back to it later. However, when I returned to the phone and tried booting it into the bootloader to re-flash a recovery I get the error message:

    Bootloader
    2C.7C

    Battery Low
    Cannot Program

    The obvious solution is to charge the phone. The problem is when I plug the phone into the AC charger it doesn't charge. When I plug the phone in it immediately cuts on and stops at the M logo (the firmware I had didn't boot anyway so this isn't surprising). The problem isn't that its getting stuck at the M logo, the problem is the phone doesn't charge while stuck at that screen. The white light that normally illuminates is off while plugged in at that screen. And there's no other way to get it to charge (that I know of). It normally charges while turned off, but the moment I plug it in while it is off it tries to cut on and gets stuck at that damn logo.

    I am fairly sure the battery is really too low, for when I left it alone earlier it was displaying the M logo, and thus not charging.

    If anyone knows how to charge this thing or bypass the bootloader error message so that I can flash a new recovery I'm all ears for suggestions :)

    Phones will not charge in bootloader or recovery. This is why we recommend having at least 70% before doing anything. You will need to either find another battery or someone with one. You can always go the butcher route if those are not options though.

    You could get a wall battery charger.

    The Verizon batteries are pretty expensive, and while I can get one from Amazon for cheap I'd rather get this done asap. Could you elaborate on the butcher route? I'm a fairly technical person so there aren't many procedures I shy away from.

    You should have done it from the phone I always do for that reason. You can erase recovery and flash a new one from terminal on your phone you can also use rom manager to flash recovery images.

    Bootloader 2C.7C Battery Low Cannot Program

    ... I'm having the same issue :/

    check.png I've tried charging it for a day with a wall charger
    check.png I've tried charging it for a day with a USB charger
    check.png I've tried just about every unorthodox idea from
    just simply pulling the battery out and putting it back in *TO* holding some buttons while
    Pressing sequences of other buttons

    and~

    nothing has changed for me :icon_ cry:

    All it took was a few hours of having no charge..
    When I was finally able to put it on a charger,
    Bootloader had engaged, and~
    Now my phone will not charge in any conditions.:angry:

    Bootloader will not allow you to charge your phone once it has engaged..
    As far as I've read........ I still believe there is a way! I gotta.. :icon_frown:
    I honestly don't have the money to buy a new battery for this..


    So for me - I gotta find a way to charge this phone
    or go without a phone until
    someone else gives me another
    used one :icon_ cry:

    ..
    I think Bootloader an incredibly unnecessary piece of programming :dry:
    But what do I know..


    When I plug it into the wall charger, my good friend Bootloader appears,
    HOWEVER,
    If I plug it into the USB charger it shows the Motorola symbol and attempts to load
    [sometimes just getting to the Home screen before suddenly turning back off :icon_eek:]

    **idk idk idk**
    SOMEONE MUST KNOW!! :icon_frown:

    ...ok.

    Well, how about the people who were not messing with our cell phones programming?

    Like me.

    My phone was dead for only three hours, and when I connected it to a charger, what I ended up with was this ridiculous Bootloader nonsense that has ultimately cut me off from half of my life responsibilities. Such as my ability to call my doctor for a medication I NEED TO SURVIVE. I have little options, considering I live out in the middle of nowhere in Montana -.- What about us? I was doing nothing irresponsible with my phone, this should not of happened to me.

    I'm poor as hell -.- I live in a small room in the same building my husband works at, along with my 1 year old son. We don't have money to spend on batteries for a phone that was given to us for free -.-


    It's absolutely ridiculous that the manufacturers didn't think of making a program that would restore the phone to it's factory settings and programming, that could be implicated across the internet via USB. Pure bulls!%$.
