    Hey guys.. Yeah I did something idiotic.

    I was going to install a custom ROM and was following a guide. I deleted Dalvik Cache, regular Cache, and /system.

    I then went to flash the phone, unfortunately I couldn't find the update.zip and so stupidly I restarted the phone thinking I'd just move the file onto my external SD card and then re-try.

    Unfortunately now I'm stuck on a boot loop. My phone was at 15% battery.. and I have no idea when the phone charges.

    If I power the phone completely off (by removing the battery), slide the battery back in and plug it into a wall charger, will it charge so I can then flash it?

    Thanks.

    No battery image is coming up for me unfortunatly.

    So your method was:

    Unplug battery -> plug phone in with micro USB to wall outlet -> plug battery in?

    On rootzwiki dhacker put together a one click fastboot for that situation.

    I did the same thing, but I was fortunate enough to be able to return it back to stock on a full battery. Hope you get everything figured out.

    Did you try going back into recovery and reflashing the rom?

    Got my new phone and charged the batter to 40%, put that battery in my bricked phone and reflashed it to stock and it worked. So if you try to do these roms keep your batter above 80%.
