    I tried to unroot today and just installed update.zip. The update failed at first, then I updated again and it worked fine.

    Now that the 2nd update is over MY PHONE WON'T TURN ON. I can get to the boot screen but it goes through the red eye animation for about 10 seconds then turns off.

    Flash the stock SBF and restore your phone to a working state.

    You dont need recovery, you need bootloader -- let your phone charge for a bit, then get to the bootloader and do some work.

    Right, although when I plug in my phone it doesn't seem to be charging. I've tried another battery(which could be low, although i dont remember either of them being that low...) and both are giving me the same result.

    Shouldn't the phone turn on or the light next to the micro usb port turn on?

    Let it sit on an AC charger for a couple hours.
