    I bought a droid and have had it working for a couple months. I decided to flash cyanogen mod 6 cause i like the features. I used a recovery only .sbf with RSDlite 4.7 , loaded sbf recovery and flashed the rom. Everything worked fine for the whole day. I was out that night and the phone died. When i returned home i plugged my phone in and nothing happened. The only sign of life i get is the white led next to the usb plug The battery is fully charged (i checked with another droid) and i tried booting with x+power, dpad up+power and even t+power. I cant get the phone to power into bootloader to use with rsdlite and i cant get it to connect to rsdlite by pressing dpad up+power and connecting it to my pc. I get no response from the phone at all beside the charging light on the side.

    Is there a way to save my droid [​IMG]

    P.S.- Im currently leaving the battery out all night hoping that something good happens when i put it back in.

    Leaving the battery out is the only option you have. If that doesn't fix anything and you still can't get the bootloader to come up you have a brick. Sounds like a hardware fault, though, so you might be able to file an insurance claim or even get Verizon to replace it. Doubtful on the latter, but these phones all come with a 1-year MFR warranty against hardware faults.

    Oh yeah, and you voided your warranty when you rooted.

    :(

    Well thanks for the reply. I figure that if i cant get the droid to do anything, then verizon is gonna have the same luck :icon_ nana: Hopefully they wont be able to tell if i rooted my phone. How does the 1-yr mfgr warranty work? Since i bought the phone from someone second hand will they still honor the warranty? It has a clean esn btw...

    And thanks for the welcome !

    You're welcome.

    If they can't get the phone to boot they can't tell either. As for the warranty I'm not sure. You may have to contact CS over the phone or Motorola directly. Buying it second-hand you might not have any luck.
