    You'll be OK, havent seen a real brick yet, and I doubt you'll be the first.

    First of all, I'd say remove the battery.

    Second, power on holding the "x" and go to recovery

    If you get to recovery then wipe

    And, make sure you have your battery charging again. I believe the magic figure is don't ever try to install ROM's with less than 30% battery.

    Now, we await the Rescue Squad.

    I'd say 40% when messing with RSD. Just to be safe. :p

    File corrupted doesn't mean bricked. I've had that before, and I'm still on my first Droid. Just make sure you charged, if you can wipe like vulcan said, then flash rsd lite. It may take a few times before it will take. It has taken me 3 times before, it may take you more. And trust me, I am 99% sure your Droid is fixable.

    Yes, I concur. A 'bricked' phone is just that, all the functionality of a brick. No lighty uppy, no nada. The first thing you need to do (yes I am repeating what everyone else has said) is try to get some more juice to your battery. USE the WALL charger, don't try to rely on charging via USB/computer. A neat little trick I do is have a spare battery always charging on my battery only charger ;).

    Here's my little 'adventure':

    PLEASE HELP I have recently rooted my Droid x from gingerbread back to froyo and installed some custom roms. First I installed Liberty then Cyanogen. I then installed a 3rd rom and did everything to flash the rom but I think because I did not unflash Cyanogen that I got this problem. My phone was stuck in a bootloop so I tried to wipe every thing and my battery ended up dying and now I can not charge my phone while in bootloader so can anyone help with ways to charge my battery?

    Get someone to charge it for you, go to the Verizon store and buy another battery (call up there and ask if they can charge it for you by the time you get there), or you can cut a USB cable, twist the black (ground) leads together and the red (positive) leads together and put the red on the positive battery terminal and the black on the negative. Hold it there for 5-7 minutes.

    Hold the "up" arrow when powering the handset on, which will take you to the bootloader. Once in the bootloader, plug it into a wall charger, which will charge it.
