    Hey i recently got a replacement phone from Verizon which came with 2.3.4 Gingerbread and a build 5.7.906. my first problems were rooting which i later figured out with Motofail.
    My problem now is that i tried installing Steal Droid 5.6 and when it wouldn't boot i went to flash back to Psouza4FXZwithRootTools-D3, long story short my phone battery is too low to complete install and now i can't flash or boot into anything other than AP Fastboot were im not sure if my phone is charging. Any Ideas or should i buy a new one?

    Leave it plugged in & see if it charges. Or take the battery to someone that can charge it. Maybe vzw or someone with the same phone. Or get another battery.

    The 5.7.906 update breaks the ability to SBF/FXZ to an earlier build. BUT, there is a way back to a mostly .890 build. The forum member ovelayer has made a partly .906 partly .890 SBF you can flash. You can check XDA for it in the D3 section. I can't link to it on mobile, sadly. I know the D3 can charge while turned off, but not sure if it will since it was in AP Fastboot before it died. For future reference, never attamp a flash or ROM install without having your battery above 50%.
