    I have a friend with a dead g2x and i am trying to reflash it. But his battery is dead. I remember seeing a trick somewhere with putting usb wires put between the battery and it tricks the phone into believing its charged???

    Help!

    You will need two usb cords and be willing to sacrifice one:

    1. Cut off the end of the usb cord that plugs into the phone.
    2. Strip away the outside casing of the cord to expose the smaller wires that are inside it.
    3. Strip the casing off the red and black wires.
    4. Place the red wire on the positive input on the battery and the black on the negative and insert the battery into your phone. The battery is labeled to let you know which is the positive and negative. This was the hardest part I had to take the wires and hook them around positive and negative and then hold them in place while replacing the battery.
    5. Plug your usb cord connected to the battery into a usb port and connect your phone to your computer with your other usb cord.
    6. Flash your phone.

    This is what I did when my bionic battery died and needed flashed.
