    Last night I was flashing cyanogenmod from rom manager and it worked. then I tried installing a p3 kernel from rom manager and it worked, but when I turned it on I had less than 15% battery. the phone died so I charged it, but the thing is IT WON'T CHARGE!!! I tried my normal charger, then the usb connected to the cpu and phone, then my car charger, and none of them work!!! The white light doesn't come on and the phone dies within 15 seconds

    What happened!?!? What should I do!? It's not bricked, but this is a problem...if it's the battery, I should just buy a new battery...but I think it might be the actual input for the charger on the phone. If this is the case I need to unroot and go to verizon, right? I'll have to borrow a friends droid battery I guess. Help!!! Thanks

    Problem is the kernel. Plug it in. Wipe. Re-install CM6. I had same problem. I had to load 3 kernels to get one that worked for me

    Why don't you just re-flash a ROM. I once had an issue like this. I had a full battery, but then installed some ROM and at bootup it said my battery was almost dead. I plugged in and it wouldn't 'charge' either.

    I just re flashed my ROM and it was fixed...

    The problem is, the phone won't stay on long enough to do ANYTHING

    How can I reflash if it has zero battery?

    *phew* the restore worked and now it says I have full battery haha. I'm afraid to try another kernel. Was it the p3's in general or just the 1ghz I tried?

    It's reporting low battery because you're using a pre-Froyo kernel (2.6.29.x). When using the old kernels, your phone won't charge and will report 0% battery charge. You need to use one that's made for Froyo (2.6.32.x). Here's a link to P3's kernels:

    P3Droid Kernels

    Scroll down to get to the ones that say Froyo / Android 2.2. Hope this helps.

    I'm new to clockwork and rom manager, so if I want to use one of those, can I use the update.zip format like in SP recovery and install from sd card?

    Yep! You can either rename it to update.zip and do it that way (as you had to with SPRecovery), but with Clockwork you can browse to it and install it without renaming the file.

    rom manager did not "break" your phone. you did. rom manager did nothing more/less than what you told it to do.

    please take more care in choosing your words next time. this is how rumors/drama starts.

    thanks.
