    I have a modded droid. I shut it off two days ago and now it won't boot. It hangs at the motorola logo and then just keeps restarting. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this issue? I am praying that my phone is not bricked, but I can't get anywhere. I went into SPrecovery and restored the backup but it didn't fix the problem. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it!!!

    Was your phone plugged into a charger? if not it will die then boot loop until it has enough charge. just let it charge overnight and you should be fine. How can you live without a phone for 2 days lol

    So it will not boot up if the battery is too low even on the charger?

    Nope. not when it's really dead. i forgot to put mine on the charger one night (100%) and it was down to 5% by morning. sucked

    However!! i am a little concerned about you doing a restore while it was that dead. how did you manage that?

    I just went into the menu and restored. It went through all the motions, but after a reboot still just hangs. I am pretty sure I am running 2.0.1

    How low is the battery...and yes, let it charge. I also am surprised you did a recovery on low battery successfully. I've seen instructions, including I think #1 in my sig that says to only flash roms when at 100% charge.
    Doesn't mean it always goes wrong but it can so why risk it. Plug it in and tomorrow it should be fine.

    Cool thanks! Is there anyway to keep it from trying to continuously boot and just charge?
