    Well it was at like 5% I plugged it in to charge and I came back like an hour later and it was completely dead so I unplugged it and plugged it back in, it just flashed the M then turned off and that was like 3 days ago and ive tried like 4 more different chargers and its still broke/dead.

    OEM charger? My favorite solution is to NEVER charge the phone. Just the battery with a battery only charger and a spare battery.

    Check out your charger. You may need a new one.

    when the battery gets close to 0%, it will automatically shut down (as you now know). consequently, the d1 will power ON when the charge is renewed (dumb if you ask me) ...so couple that with the juice that a boot pulls and you've got a loop where your battery won't charge enough to boot and stay booted. pain in the butt...

    if you're using an OEM (original equipment manufacturer...MOTOROLA) charger, your battery may be shot. Those are really the two most likely possibilities. battery health typically starts to wave after a year or so
