    Droid 1

    First off im not mad if it was the rom that caused it i support all the devs.

    I have had my droid rooted since 2.0 android..never had a problem in a year or so ..i was hearing really good things about Liquid GB rom..so i gave it a go ran super smooth then slowed to a crawl running overclocked to 800mhz..couldnt do anything .. battery was at 50 %...so i turned the screen off and left it for about 10 min. turned the screen back on phone working fine again battery was at 20 % at this point then went down to 5% in a matter of a secound then the battery symbol in the notification bar went red with a line or x threw it and i couldnt use the phone cause it slowed again before i could pull the battery it shutoff with out saying powering down...so i plugged it in and it booted threw the M logo to the animation then freezes at animation then reboots...problem is it will not go into recovery by holding x doesnt even recognize it at all..then tried up on the d-pad to use rsd and all it says is battery to low to program stays on that screen for about 10 sec. then reboots the phone to the M logo...i plugged it into the pc which i have used with the phone .. charging light comes on but nothing else happens PC doesnt see it and rsd doesnt see so i boot using D-pad up again and still battery to low to program..the whole time its plugged into the pc the charging light is on but i left it charging for 6 hours but still says battery to low...if i leave it plugged into the wall charger it just boot loops infinity. M logo then animations then reboot...i left it plugged into the wall for another 2 hours and no charge still ..everything was working fine untill i put that rom on not saying its exactly the rom that caused it but recovery worked prior.

    Same kinda thing happened to me a while back. The problem is a computer cant give the phone enough of a charge of the bat to get it to start (from dead). Now a PC can charge it once you have like 10% or w/e. Anyway what you do is go to Verizon tell them its messed up and they'll drop a temp battery in there to troubleshoot. Once that happens ask for the phone and quick boot into recovery and reflash. Well that's how I ended up fixing mine like a year ago.
