    I know I have seen others with this problem but I can't seem to find it in search. I tried a new rom on my X last night and it sucked the battery down. I tried to install a different rom ( while hooked to a computer because the battery was low)
    Now I am stuck at boot screen. Tried wiping and no luck. I went to do an SBF and the battery is too low. I left it plugged in all night but it didn't charge while on the stuck boot screen.
    How do I charge up the battery enough to run the SBF?

    Thx

    You need to plug it in to the wall charger for a few hours. If the batt is too low a computer will not charge it.

    It won't charge in the bootloader... You are gonna have to find another battery in the meantime or find a way to charge yours.

    There's a method that. Involves slicing off the usb part of u charger and slitting the wires and connecting one lead to one side if the battery and so on but I would suggest buying a battery charger and use tht to charge the battery and do an sbf

    Having more than one battery is ALWAYS a great idea! For future reference, always have at least 70% battery before doing anything to it. :)
