    I think i may have screwed up big time guys. I followed a youtube video to the T on how to root my droid. I used rsd lite and sprecovery, waited til it rebooted 100% and now my battery has a slash through it, my phone wont charge, and i have no signal. What can I do to fix the problem? I feel like a real idiot and if i can somehow fix the problem i dont think i'l ever try this again. Please Help Me, I would be so appreciative of your time and suggestions.

    Your phone probably isn't finished rooting... It is stuck in the intermediate step.

    1. Make sure your ROM is on your sd card (titled update)
    2. Turn your phone off
    3. Hold x and Power
    4. Release Power (still hold x) till boot screen comes up
    5. wipe data
    6. wipe cache
    7. install update.zip

    You should have made a nandroid backup, just try restoring that.

    Pretty sure if I was in your situation I'd do this.

    I'm fairly new to this, but it seems to me you should always be able to RSD a ESE81 SBF on and then you're back to a stock phone.

    if you have a friend with a droid or go to vzw and see if they let you use a battery to verify that is the problem.

    Make sure your update file on the SD card is in the root of the card (/SD). Also make sure it is update.zip and NOT update.zip.zip

    OH!! I remember reading a thread somewhere once where somebody had a similar issue ... well kinda; they used their phone until the battery completely drained and then couldn't get it to charge.
    Any way, I remember them saying they had to leave it plugged in for several hours. Even though it appeared as if it wasn't charging, after a while it worked.
    Don't know if this applies here, but I'm just trying to think of a solution ...

    So nothing happens when you plug it in, did you try a diff cable?
    If you can get it to at least come on, you could try flashing the stock .sbf to see if you can get it to charge again. When it came up, was the battery indicator blank on the main screen, or did it have a battery symbol that was blank?

    Have you tried different outlets throughout you house? Or the USB (although it takes longer to charge that way)?? Or. perhaps, a different charger all together?

    Again, just throwing stuff out there!

    ^^ What Yank said..... Put your phone on the Wall charger (not computer) for at least 2-3 hours and you should be able to boot up after that. Droids do not like to flash roms or anything once the battery is below 40%. I usually will not try to flash anything if my battery is at or below 60%.

    First I would try allowing your phone to charge for several hours then try to reboot into recovery. It would seem no one else is addressing the other problem of no service which would indicate a rom that failed to install correctly or an interruption while flashing something.
    As long as you can boot into recovery your phone is not bricked. Download custom rom of choice using computer. Place that. Zip file on SD card and rename to update( do not rename "update.zip" the. Zip file extension will be added automatically if using win vista or win 7) reboot holding x and power into recovery, now select install update.zip. once finished you should be good after reboot. I would suggest simply stunning v4.5 as your custom rom but, rom stability varies from phone to phone and user to user. Don't ever listen to somone who says such and such is the best rom. It is all based on opinion and the best to one person could be the worst to another person.

    You may have totally sapped your battery while flashing. Have you tried letting it charge for an hour or two with the wall charger? This has never happened to me, but I have read many threads where people's battery fully discharge and take several hours to charge back up.
    Otherwise, I agree with the others: possibly the battery OR the charger itself??
