    Today, my phone died in my pocket. I tried turning on my phone with my charger, only to get endless bootloops. I CAN get into sprecovery. i tried reflashing countless roms even back to sholesmod 2.0.3. still didnt turn phone on.

    -before this i was running ultimate droid 7
    - left phone in charger for 3-4 hours, still in bootloop.

    Possibly bricked? :X

    Can you get into sprecovery right now? Try mounting usb mass storage and see if you can load the virgin rom.

    if you can get into sprecovery, your phone is NOT bricked. Try flashing a 600 mhz stock kernel and see if it helps.

    I hate the work brick. Stop using it people. YOUR PHONE IS NOT BRICKED. Brick means that it is completely unusable. No way whatsoever to fix it. At the very least, RSDlite will work for you. Therefore, your phone is not bricked. There has yet to be a bricked droid.

    Sounds like you are having kernel issues if i am not mistaken, try flashing a fresh rom from the web just put your sdcard right into your computer and then put a rom on it put it back in and flash away. Try a stock clocked rom for this as well would be my best guess. As long as you have recovery you are golden. Option 2 if all else fails look up rsdlite that saved my semibrick droid before.

    If your phone completely drained the battery I would let it charge over night and see. I have read several threads about the Droid not liking to be drained and will charge extremely slow. I would fully charge it and then see if any issues.

    How about describing the problem?

    "Stuck in a reboot loop" would describe this one.

    I bricked my droid!!

    I wuz herez. :)

    Although I really didn't read this thread last night, I glanced at it with one eye open as I was kinda tired while browsing last night. I saw some other users were helping out, and seemed to be saying the same thing I would have said, so I moved on.
