1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I was in the process of switching from BB v .1 (froyo) back to the 2nd leaked froyo rom. I had gotten to the point where CW was all finished and was sitting on the CW home screen. I hit reboot now and then went back to watching tv until my droid restarted. When I checked back the screen was black. I tried hitting the power button (assuming the screen shut off) but nothing happen. Then I tried holding the power button to power it on. Lastly I did a battery pull but still it would not even power on. Please someone tell me you know what happened. I desperately need the GPS to get home...

    Was your battery fully charged? If not, put it in the charger for an hour and start over.

    Hope this helps.

    I know it wasnt charged fully and after further examination I am starting to believe that the battery is the issue. You said put it in the charger; are you referring to charging the battery in the phone or is there some kind of mystery charger that I dont know about, that just charges the battery?

    I only ask because I have heard over and over again that android devices wont charge when the phone is off.

    Sorry for the confusion. I purchased a dock(charger) so that is how I recharge. If you use the USB and plug then that is the way to go.

    Thanks. I'll give it a try. Hopefully it works; otherwise I'll have to use the old fashioned way to get home and maps arent really my thing.
