    So I have a rooted d2g and last night I tried flashing cm7 on it. After rebooting the phone it wouldnt move passed the red motorola logo and it wouldnt even get to the logo unless it was plugged in. After some reading I have come to realize that my battery is dead... I hooked it up to the computer and after it stayed plugged in for a few minutes I was able to pull up the bootloader and it also says the battery is too low to program. So I dont know anyone with another droid 2 or anything similar that I could charge the battery in, I dont have much money to go buy anything such as a new battery let alone a new phone, and I need to get this battery charged so I can sbf it back to stock. After some more reading online about charging a battery without using the phone I have come across a couple of threads saying to splice apart a usb cable and tape the ends to the leads on the battery which will charge it. I am completely ok with doing this but I only have one cable available to me and after charging the battery I will need to put the cable back together so I can use it to flash the sbf using rsd lite.
    So my question is this, if I cut this cable apart will I be able to put it back together and have it work correctly? Also, I have a car charger as well. Could I do the same thing with the car charger that you can do with the usb cable?

    Thanks in advance guys. Sorry if this is a ridiculously stupid question...

    First, I wouldn't recommend slicing your stock USB cable. Using the car charger is fine, though, as (if I'm not mistaken) it only has two conductors instead of the full USB set, so it'll be easier to connect them correctly.

    Second, you could take the battery to a Verizon store and ask them to charge it for you.

    I have cut cables and reconnected, but if they come apart/short during a SBF, you could really mess up phone

    and this method of charging, can fry both you battery and you phone
    so be careful
    for the future, think about a spare battery charger, about $5 from ebay or amazon

    As you might have read in all those threads everywhere in the D2G-related forums, currently there is no way to restore your phone.

    Well, you could try a warranty claim.

    I'm guessing that you had new version update 4.5.629?, if so you stuck till new SBF is leaked
    see Bricked. (SBF after .629 update, bootloader, etc)

    if not you flashed wrong SBF

    edit: or update failed to install, and your stuck

    if you can take to a verizon store, just tell them the update failed
    they can flash it, if they want to

    FYI .629 update started 1st of March, and has bricked a few phones
