Ok here is what happen. Last night i decided to try the latest Rubix Blurry 1.6.3 and every thing went fine there. I went with it all day and noticed for some reason it drained my battery very very quickly. also the sync logo was on all day long but nothing downloading in market or anything. Anyway. I wanted to go back to my backup i made before i went to 1.6.3 so i used bootstrap and rebooted into recovery, selected the backup i made yesterday and hit ok. It started its thing and seemed to sit at checking md5 sum for about 15 30 seconds and then real quick said something else i did not see and shut down. It has yet to function besides going to M logo while plugged in to AC. Now heres the kicker, since I had the battery drain issue today my phone was low on juice. it was around 10% i dont remember but i had it plugged in for a while on AC and did all of this while on AC. brand new battery. I can get to bootloader but it says 30.04 and warns of low battery and i Can get to androids recovery but custom recovery is a goner. so I am wondering does the battery charge while in recovery so i can get full to try SBF? Another question is can i use androids recovery to apply clockwork backup if i rename it to update.zip with pc (if im lucky) now one thing im worried about i saw a tutorial on using the sbf method and it says if i have the 30.04 bootloader rather then 30.03 i have to wait for a leak from TBH. I greatly appreciate all the information you can provide. If worse comes to worse i can find someone with a charged X battery but if i have wrong version of bootloader, then uh....thats gonna stink. BTW if i plug it in with USB to pc the green led lights but the pc makes no jingle telling me usb is plugged in. so im guessing its not charging on pc?
