    Alright, so I tried to unroot my Droid 1 using this method and bricked my phone in the process. I was using Ultimate Droid and Clockwork Recovery. I followed the usual installing the "update.zip" from the SD Card and it started installing it but turned off a few seconds in and it won't respond now.

    How charged was your battery before you started?

    Pull the battery, wait 30 seconds, reinsert, and then try powering it back up.

    Plug it into a wall charger.

    When you say no response you mean it won't even flicker?

    Plugged it in, no response.
    The only time I get any response is if I try to do Bootloader where it tells me "Battery Low Cannot Program"

    Okay, then your battery is low. You need to charge. When you said no response I thought you meant it wouldn't even light up.

    Is code corrupt?

    It won't light up. The only time it does anything is with the Bootloader. The thing has been plugged in almost all day, I don't see how the battery can be low.

    Weak battery. Okay, there are a couple of options here. Do you have a friend you can beg, borrow, or threaten to steal a charge droid battery from? The D2 and the D1 have the same battery.

    Okay. If you have to get it up and running tonight then to proceed you'll have to perform surgery on a USB cable. You comfortable stripping wires?

    I'm borrowing a friends USB cable, so that won't happen. Can you tell me what to do with a charged battery and I'll try it when I get one?

    You pop it in and boot back into the bootloader Make note of if it says code corrupt or not. That's very important.

    You don't need a microUSB cable like you're using now; any USB cable will do.

    We're at SBF-flashing time if it won't boot into recovery with the fresh battery, but as long as we can get into the bootloader we can try to flash SBF to put the system back to stock.

    I don't have any other USB cables around but I can check it out with a fresh battery tomorrow.

    Okay. Let us know. I won't be around till later in the afternoon, but someone might be around before then. :)

    Try to boot it up into recovery, but it's very likely that you won't be able to get in. If not, try bootloader. Make sure it says it's okay to program. Then, if I'm not here and you want to proceed, follow the guide here:
