    After an unfortunate rooting session with my Motorola Milestone, the phone now returns into an "dead" mode. It refuses to start at all. I tried charging it and see if it starts by itself, but it doesn't budge and the little while led doesn't lit. The only time when it lit is when I connect it to the PC. I tried putting in it a new battery, taking out the SD card and SIM, but to no avail. I remember seeing a video where a guy used a dissected USB cable to spark the phone into turning on again, so I take it I'll have to use a "hardware approach"? Please help.

    Try going to XDA, they seem to have gotten the milestone following, droidforums is more for the Verizon Droid. Not trying to be mean at all, just you'll probably get better help there then here.

    That's ruled out already, I tried there too. Though there's not much difference between the two phones other than the network they use.

    I tried following this guide, though without success. The phone still has that white LED lit when it's connected to the PC.

    Apparently after I left it for over a month with the battery pulled out it worked again (though that time I tried it with a mains charger) and it worked again, but the battery became wonky so I bought another one. I have no idea what happened or what to suggest you to do, sorry X.X
