    HELP PLEASEE
    I have the Motorola Droid.
    Doesn't boot (Stuck at M)
    Doesn't boot into SPRecovery (Doesn't boot at all when I hold x and press power button.)
    Boots into bootloader(hold up power button) but it shows
    "Battery Low
    Unable to program"
    (And before you tell me to charge it, I can't seem to charge it while it starts up or in the boot loader)

    What I did to get here. :(
    1. Partitioned my sd card.. (without backing up)
    2. Backed up my motorola droid on Clockwork, running Bugless Beast v1.1. (With partitioned sd card)
    3. Flashed SPRecovery.
    4. I flashed the ZeusDroid HTC Desire Rom.
    5. Played around for a while, then restored back to Bugless Beast with SPRecovery.
    6. Then, when I tried to reboot it again. This happened.

    ..I'll have to wait 2 days for school to start again and then ask one of the two people in our entire school if they want to swap out their full battery for my dead one.

    Doesn't the Verizon store carry a stand alone battery charger? Cost something but it's one way out of this.

    Or go and buy another battery. A new phone is going to cost a whole lot more.

    So there's no way to fix it without charging the battery somehow? And let's say I did end up charging it but it doesn't work, what shall I do?

    I've tried charging with both. They both try to turn the phone on but it gets stuck in boot.

    Use adb to flash clockwork recovery then reload a rom. There's several threads on how to do that.

    There is a standalone charger available, they might have it at the local VZW store.... But it'll set you back a $20 bill and some change.

    Enter your location

    If you have to order it online, it has the added disadvantage of a wait time. But still, it could be worth it to fix your Droid.

    You can't do that if the only thing you can access is the bootloader. You need to be able to access the recovery partition to begin with before ADB will allow you access.
