    So the root went fine, but when i was trying to load a new rom i loaded the wrong one and it all went wrong. It wont go into fastboot so i can use rsd lite and do a factory reflash, I plug in my charger and the dual core screen comes on and stay on forever. Plug it to my computer nothing happens. Im lost no idea what to do, i went to verizon and they ordered me a new one under warranty but i want to boot it up to a stock flash so i dont get charged if they ever find out.

    Your telling him to get it wet?
    factory warranty doesn't cover water damage, insurance would but it's gonna cost a deductible..

    It's fixable I bet. someone with knowledge will Chime in soon...
    Ignore irrational statement s like above...



    Edit: chime ^

    This must be one of the reasons companies don't want to endorse hacking devices. If/when people brick it/screw up the customer usually wants the company to pay for another one. Because of course who wants to screw there expansive smartphone up and pay for another one even though they were at fault?

    ^ +1000 although I root my phones but I absolutely make sure I know what I am doing and only follow trusted sources but when the day comes I accidentally mess something up, I carry insurance. It is not the carrier or manufacturers fault or responsibility to make up for my mistake. What happened to the days when good people took responsibility for their mistakes?

    That wont work cause i cant get my phone into fastboot. I got it in fastboot yesterday but it said battery low and wouldnt charge it for some reason.


    I have rooted a bunch of phones 4 droid 1's my first one and all my friends, droid 2, thunderbolt was mine but gave it to my wife. I just dont understand why it wont go into fastboot so i can reflash it and it will be good.

    Same happened to me yesterday but when I plugged it in it went to a battery only screen and charged, after it read 60% I was able to get into fastboot and restore my phone...


    ...as far as the insurance fraud post, DF does not condone those kind of actions and they have negative effects on the community and consumer as a whole

    Charge your battery and try to force it into fast boot?

    I may need to get a battery mounted charger. it isnt taking a charge from the phone. by forcing it, you mean hold down the power button + volume keys? Or is there another way?

    Plug it into a wall outlet using the charging block and wait for it to get to 60% before you try to use fastboot

    its charging now. The moto dualcore screen is the only screen I can get. I'll let it sit charging for a little longer.

    Give it a few hours, if not when you do get into fastboot and try to flash the files it will give you a "low battery" warning and will not start the process until a sufficient charge is provided

    OP might need a separate charger or a temp battery switch if he flashed a rom. I'm pretty sure the charging-while-off feature is blur-only. I had a problem like this trying to get CM4GB on my D2 when it was in leak stages. Had to borrow my GFs D2G battery to get some life in it so it would take the SBF.

    I am using a mac and connected by USB to bionic in Fastboot mode. Looks OK but gets stuck at the message "waiting for correct USB state." What do I do know? The phone is in a bootloop, so I have no more control over the USB state. Phone says USB connected. Help please?

    Either take your battery to verizon and ask them to charge it. After they charge it then you can get into fastboot and reset your whole phone. worked for me.
